We walked around a while trying to find this place, but couldn't find it - in its place at number 15 is a bar called The Goose Bar, which DOESN'T do custom cocktails like The Cocktail Bar. No fuss - we decided to try it...More

Spent a good while trying to find this highly recommended bar using the TripAdvisor app map only to find by asking locals that it has closed down and is now an Irish pub. Apparently they also do cocktails but the Guinness & Magners crowd didn't...More

My husband and I had a great time at The Cocktail Bar. It was the perfect way to end our evening. The bartender/owner Jimmy made some of the best cocktails I've had.

Jimmy is the owner. But he doesn't flaunt it. He's the best bartender I've ever seen. And I've been in the industry a bit of time. The best drinks I've had in Italy by far!! Speakeasy feel of a bar. Very friendly and welcoming. I...More

This cozy, small bar near the piazza del duomo serves the best cocktails I have ever tasted. They do not have a menu, the bar owners just make a cocktail exactly tailored to your own taste. Jazzy music in the background makes this the perfect...More

This cozy bar is tucked away in a quiet street near the Duomo. We are lucky it sits right beside our hotel and was our go-to place at night. It serves awesome drinks, with good atmosphere with mostly locals and the bartender/owner was nice and...More

A total must visit! Jimmy was very creative with the drinks and they seriously have more ingredients stocked than most restaurant kitchens! He made the plantation, a Moscow mule (with cucumber garnish), a passion fruit drink (with real passion fruit extract), and a lychee martini...More

Great bar, a little off the beaten track, but well worth looking for! New York style design, with smooth jazz music playing, really creating a cool atmosphere. Tried some truly excellent and original drinks as well as some classics. The smoky martini was sensational! They...More
