Florence is a buzzing university city, and has students originating not only from Italy but from all over the world. It is the reason for which this enchanting city is jam-packed full of bars and pubs where you can sound out the purely Florence night life, although there are a number of international places to go to given the globalised world we live in. In any case, we would like to guide you through the tangle of bars, pubs, and clubs distributed through the beautiful streets of Florence, thus below you will find a couple of places to spend your night into the untimely hours of the morning.
Going out for a drink in Florence
To start out your evening, there is nothing better than enjoying a few delicious Italian wines in a welcoming place where you can quietly chat with friends.
Located on Via Borgo Ognissanti 42r, is the Sei Divino bar which has an excellent and very welcoming atmosphere, and where you can try the different aperitifs on offer every evening to satisfy your hunger before going out to eat or immerse yourself in the chilled-out Florence life style.
Not only enjoy an excellent wine from the region in this pleasant bar, but one of their excellent cocktails as well if you so choose. The ideal place for starting your night out in Florence.
Florence at night
If you would like to immerse yourself in Bohemian Florence, then have a glass of wine in the Capocaccia, which is one of the favourite haunts of the most intellectual and cool florentines. This bar situated on Lugarno Corsino Street, 12-14 is an elegant place where you can try their excellent wines or cocktails, and a really welcoming bar dominated by relaxing chill-out music played by the leading and most prominent DJs in the city. From here, you can make your way to the different bars and clubs in Florence with authentic Florence touches.
If you would like to get to know the Florence night life by starting in a trendy but welcoming, and quality bar without worrying about the noise and chaos generated by the typical tourists, then head to the Capocaccia.
Going out clubbing in Florence
Following a few glasses of wine and cocktails whilst chatting with friends, there comes a point when you feel like dancing until the early hours of the morning. In which case, it is always recommendable to do so in a chic place that is not situated close to the typical touristy places. Thus there is nothing better than the Tenax where predominantly house music is played by the best DJs in Florence and Italy, in a very night club atmosphere.
It may appear a bit out of the way in Via Pratese, 46 however its worth sharing a taxi with friends and making your way there to a place where you can enjoy a much more authentic Italian atmosphere, and great quality music. The queues can be a bit of a turn-off, but waiting time is only approximately 15 minutes that is if you know what Italians are like, so leave your jeans and trainers at home and get your best Italian glad rags on if you don’t want to be left at the door.
