Nolita Restaurant – Athens, Greece

Athens, Greece

Semiramis Hotel new restaurant is one of the most well known boutique hotels in Athens, part of YES Hotels group owned by international art collector Dakis Joannou.
The original classic hotel was purchased by Art Collector Dakis Joannou and renovated 12 years ago by international designer Karim Rashid.
Nolita is the new restaurant located at the lower level overlooking the back garden and pool, a space that has been operating as the hotel restaurant only for the past years.
The hotel owner and management wanted to re-conceptualize it as a project within a project, a “setting” within the setting of the original and audacious hotel design.
The new space measures 3500 sq. ft. in one single floor. A high ceiling space is surrounded by an intricate louver design separates the hotel lobby with the new restaurant space below which maintains visual privacy while offers glimpses from one space to the other.
Nolita consist of an entry lobby, an open “show” kitchen, a dining hall of 80 people capacity, a private dining area of 20 people capacity and a new bar-lounge space overlooking the outdoor garden and pool.
