This is the place to meet for a first date. Under dim lights and after your first delicious libation, everyone looks great. The vibe is like a Santa Monica cafe in 1989. Slouchy sofas, leather bar stools, diamond tufted walls. The front door is always...More

First of all, you need to ring the bell and wait to be let in! A few people clearly didn’t spot that. A wide range of cocktails, very well made and without the usual suspects. Personally I loved the Green Card. Nice, friendly atmosphere. Probably...More

Visited here with my boyfriend and mum. We loved the ambience, jazz music and decor. Was quite quiet when we went at 1030 so maybe it's more of late night place. I had the Johnny Panazella cocktail which is based on a Tuscan salad. One...More

This place was a stone's throw from our hotel and we were lucky enough to stop by on a quiet night. Ambiance is really cool and the cocktails were wonderfully executed. Definitely recommend.

Make yourself a favor and come visit Bitter Bar. From the moment we stepped in, I knew it will be an amazing experience. This place has a character: jazz that transfers you back to 20s, every detail and piece of furniture is thought through. But...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
