This unique hangout space in the historic center of Palermo is the love child of Nasser Charles Ayazpour, a poet and Persian designer who wanted to create a space where art, cultures and tastes co-mingle in a showroom setting (hence "SciùRum").
Tucked away in a little courtyard off the main Via Maquade, SciùRum's interior displays a collection of unique furniture and oggetti d'arte from all parts of the world, each telling their own unique story. The terrace outside is an eclectic mix of vintage sofas, speed signs used as table tops, barber shop chairs, and a large swing.
The kitchen boasts an avant-guarde menu by chef Gabriele Rizzo, a Palermo native with international acclaim. The plates are beautifully presented and the menu changes weekly -- when we were there we had the antipasto egg waffle with hazelnut butter, fondue, and artichokes. It did not disappoint.
