Established back in 1981, it was the first American bar in Florence. As it is still stands, it is still the most famous and popular place to meet your friends for a night on the town. A bar that has seen many people walk through these doors and bartenders who would make the best cocktails for its guests. Lunchtime has a wide range of dishes to choose from. All are made fresh each day, seasonal dishes and many have a vegetarian twist to them. If you are here in the summertime, sit out in the famous terrace garden which has a great view of the old walls to the city and the square in front of Porta San Miniato. The aperitivi are delicious as well which serve hot and cold dishes, finger foods and wine and cocktails. At the weekends, there is a DJ set that brings the place to a lively level. Don't forget to get there early so you can claim your table outside in the terrace garden.
