Dash Kitchen restaurant and lounge bar is all set for success; a rustic atmosphere, an interesting back-story, a very cool location, and a vast selection of craft beers to accompany delicious dishes. The restaurant recently opened its doors in Torino’s San Salvario neighborhood, inside an ex-print shop. Much of the interior was intentionally left in its raw form, and it tells the story of the structure’s industrial past. One can almost imagine the printing press noises filling the same space where today, people enjoy a snack or libation in company. The architect Fabio Fantolino was responsible for the project, and sought to marry an industrial spirit to details from the 70’s. The cement pavement and walls are the perfect base for the metal bar and leather, velvet and colourful fabric seating. The various areas are divided without being closed-off: the sitting areas have armchairs and low tables, divided by steel poles that create privacy without blocking the view, and the internal lounge has massive cuts of red marble. Dash Kitchen is proof that a place with personality needs no special effects. Raw is better!
