The bartender was amazing. He was extremely nice and attentive. The bar was not crowded he made himself busy and allowed time for an English conversation which I appreciated.

We visited Florence for a few nights on vacation and decided to try a local gay bar. We arrived kind of early around 20:00. Bartender spoke excellent English and the drinks were strong and nice. It gets busier later in the night but we were...More

We stopped in for a drink at 20:00. It was empty. The bar tender was super nice, spoke great English and said the place fills up around 23:00. But only with men. He is not sure where the women go. We had fun.

If you have a non-smoking sign in your establishment, the entire bar shouldn't be smoking so much that it's hard to breathe.

Entered at approx 9:30pm on a Monday night, place was totally empty. Guy behind bar was rude and unwelcoming, so decided to leave.

It's a small but fun gay bar located in the heart of Florence. Friendly staff, large drink selection and cheap prices make this a great place to grab a drink and talk to locals.

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.
