Riva, a café and restaurant in Beijing, offers an Italian-inspired experience to transport customers to the heart of Italy. The space has two floors, each with a unique purpose. The ground floor provides quick service options, allowing customers to order a coffee or salad and sit on the long bench next to the main bar desk. The bright and inviting environment combines simple materials to create a clean and cozy atmosphere. The second floor offers more private and relaxed seating areas, including semi-private spots for small groups. Ample natural light and a contemporary design create a bright and airy ambiance, with the arc shape repeated throughout the space in various forms and functions, symbolizing a connection between past and present. The private wine cellar, visible from the staircase, showcases an impressive selection of Italian wines. The second floor also features a large VIP room with a long table that can accommodate up to 14 people for a private dinner experience.
