Dolce Vita at The River Club

The iconic terrace at The River Club has been transformed into an idyllic Mediterranean haven just in time for summer 2022. ‘Dolce Vita at The River Club’ is the vivacious and scintillating new installation on the riverside terrace at The River Lee, in partnership with Cork’s most innovative florist, Fox Flowers.

A love letter to the Italian attitude of pursuing the good life, or a ‘sweet’ life — la dolce vita — the terrace is now framed by an abundance of lush florals and greenery, reminiscent of the vibrant groves and hideaways along the most gorgeous and glamorous of Italian settings, the Amalfi coast.

The team have created six new summer cocktails exclusive to Dolce Vita at The River Club, designed to bring a flavour of Italy to the heart of Cork, using Italian phrases that summon up the spirit of la dolce vita.

Peruse the menu, choose the perfect cocktail and practice your Italian using the helpful phonetic guide underneath each cocktail’s name. You can learn a new expression, enjoy the cocktail, and try out a little Italian to add some glamour, heart and culture to your summer.

€1 from each cocktail purchased goes to The Oceans Plastic Project a not-for-profit organisation that researches micro-plastic in West Cork and raises awareness of plastic pollution along the Cork coastline, working with local secondary schools to not only arrange cleanup days, but also to use their research into coastal pollution to lobby local government and industry to stop this blight on our beautiful coastlines.

This spectacular installation will run from May – September 2022.
