Venue Features
The Scene:
CUCINA enoteca’s striking interior draws inspiration from the garden, manifesting a light and airy palette with pops of vibrant floral patterns. Earthy elements such as hand-carved woodwork, twig and branch chandeliers, and whimsical flower wallpaper draw the outdoors in, while a cozy fireplace brings warmth to the alfresco patio.
Design:
CUCINA enoteca places an emphasis on custom made furnishings, recycled and repurposed materials, and procured vintage treasures such as wooden shoe forms, gardening tools and antique basins that now house botanicals and greenery. A massive wall mural by Southern California graffiti artist, Tocayo, adds an urban element with hues of pink, green, yellow and Italian words scrawled in bright blue over large blooms.
Standout Venue Features:
Complete with communal seating, a spacious bar area and intimate table settings, the space also features an expansive alfresco patio with a cozy fireplace—the perfect relaxing atmosphere to enjoy handcrafted specialty cocktails, hard-to-find Italian artisan beers, or a fine varietal from the wine shop.
