The Nightlife Of Venice

Are you a decent nightlife buff? Are you planning to set out to Venice to enjoy the beautiful city’s comely nightlife? If your answer is affirmative, you are planning absolutely right.

You know, Venice is the gorgeous “Queen of the Adriatic.” It’s a beautiful city of northeast Italy built on 118 islets within a lagoon in the Gulf of Venice, an arm of the Adriatic Sea.

Often dubbed as “bride of the sea,” Venice is the city with unspeakable romances hidden in her bosom. The city is widely known for is sensual romantic aroma. It’s a pleasing placid promised land eternally kissed and fondled by sea. Venetians call it “the most serene one.”

Venice, the capital of the Venice province and Veneto region, is the “city of canals.” The city has a wonderful network of canals with the Grand Canal serving as its main canal. It’s a city of gondolas and boats moving around. It’s been beautifully pictured by Shakespeare in ‘the merchant of Venice’ and ‘Othello’. Italy’s major port, Venice is the industrial, financial, commercial, and cultural hub of the country.

Venice is not the destination that will offer you extremely boisterous carousing nocturnal action. However it’s the best place to enjoy sitting in moonlit bathed “Piazza San Marco” and enjoying the melodies from the cafes’ outdoor orchestras, with a perfect opera set of illuminating basilica before you.

The city has long and rich tradition of classical music. You can always find musical concerts going on somewhere. There are a number of churches and confraternities, such as San Stefano, San Stae, the Scuola di San Giovanni Evangelista, and the Scuola di San Rocco hosting classical music concerts, with local and international artists performing there. The Chiesa di Vivaldi has always been the most popular venue for the music of Vivaldi and his contemporaries.

Venice offers very decent nightlife that is mainly centered in the many cafe/bars in Piazza San Marco, one of the finest pizzas of the world. Piazza San Marco is the place magnetizing most of the tourist or nightlife buffs. It’s the most opulent and the posh place to linger over a Campari or cappuccino.

On the south side of the piazza, the 18th Century reminiscent Cafe Florian (San Marco) with the most theatrical inside is extremely famous. The place offers a million-dollar romantic setting including expensive alfresco seating to enjoy alfresco melodies with your loved ones. Some of the other options include Caffè Lavena, cafe Quadri, Caffè Chioggia, etc.

Bar Dandolo is a nice place to enjoy a goblet or two of drinks in chilly inclement weather and to relish the melodies of pianist that plays from 7 to 9pm and from 10pm to 12:30am. The drinks are little expensive, so ‘checking out the rate list’ is the better idea. Green Pub, Bareto Rosso and Bar Salus are some other options available in the city.

Campo Santo Stefano is good place to sit and enjoy. Bar/Gelateria Paolin and Gelateria Nico are one of the city’s best ice-cream sources. Campo San Bartolomeo, Campo San Luca, Campo Santa Margherita are some popular places for hanging out for young crowd.

Although Venice boasts of a number of night clubs and discos, the city seldom gets widely bouncy at nights. Le Bistrot de Venise is popular venue for occasional evenings of live music, cabaret, or late-night relaxing.

The Devil’s Forest Pub (San Marco) is popular point for relaxing, socializing over a beer, and having some nice time playing games like backgammon, chess, and Trivial Pursuit. It serves A variety of simple pasta dishes and fresh sandwiches run from 3€ to 6€ ($3.75-$7.50). El Moro Pub (Castello 4531) is great place for “Beering.” Bácaro Jazz (Rialto, San Marco) is Cocktail-bar offering drinks along with the mix of jazzy music, rough plank walls, industrial-steel tables, and a corrugated aluminum ceiling.

Paradiso Perduto (Cannaregio 2540, on Fondamenta della Misericordia) is popular for live jazz shows. Famous for offering good food at reasonable prices, it’s extremely popular with Americans and other foreign tourists. Torino@Notte (San Marco 459) is bar that makes life highly peppy after dark with live jazz nights. Harry’s Bar (at the San Marco-Vallaresso Vaporetto) stop is famous for Bellini, a mix of champagne and peach juice.

Venice is often a serene city, but if you want little disco out, Piccolo Mondo (Dorsoduro 1056, near the Accademia) is a disco/pub featuring America’s latest dance music and live music shows. The club is often frequented by lively tourists and young Venetians. Casanova (Near the train station on Lista di Spoagna) is another dance club/bar/restaurant that opens at 6 pm; restaurant stays open until midnight, and disco stays open until 4 am.
