Bottega Prosecco Bar opens at Dubai International

By Wendy Morley

After 21 months of pandemic-related closure, The Bottega Bar is reopening at Dubai International Airport. The excellent results achieved in the first months of operation for the establishment, between 2019 and 2020, prompted Bottega and partner HMSHost International to reopen as soon as conditions allowed.

The Bottega Prosecco Bar, located in Terminal 3 (Gate A) of Dubai International (DXB), is a unique offer within the busiest international airport in the world, itself a strategic hub between Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Middle East. The concept, conceived by Bottega, aims to provide the excellence of Italian country and gratify the palate of the typical consumer. The philosophy is that of the Venetian bacaro — informal tavern with "cicheti", or snacks to be consumed at the counter. More structured dishes are served at the tables. This, combined with the Prosecco or other Italian wines make the stay a pleasant experience that enriches the spirit and refreshes the soul.

Sandro Bottega, president of Bottega S.p.A. declares: "We are particularly satisfied with this reopening, which testifies to our ability to readjust to the new specificities imposed by the pandemic. Prosecco Bar has materialized in the past and will continue to be a food and wine experience to treat yourself during your trip. A safe haven in which to linger, based on the time available, for a refreshing break. The structure correctly reflects our values and aims to strengthen Italy's reputation in the oenological and gastronomic fields. "Bottega adds:" In these months of forced inactivity we have tried to make the structure increasingly sustainable. We have also expanded the range of natural products to gluten-free pasta and alcohol-free sparkling wines, which will be available shortly. Finally, in the same location customers buy the book "The 100 Prosecco Recipes".
