Santa Croce, Florence –
Tucked away between Palazzo Vecchio and Santa Croce is Chiodo Fisso, a 14th-century wine cellar turned into an intimate and mellow guitar bar.
The owner of this unique nook is an Italian singer/songwriter now retired after years of touring the world as a performer. On most nights, he entertains his attentive and appreciative clientele as they sip wine under the medieval arched brick ceilings.
The flicker of candles in elaborate candlesticks add a welcoming glaze of warmth to the already cozy atmosphere, while rustic wooden benches and booths provide plenty of space for the international mix of patrons and longtime fans to get comfy and sing along.
While some people get on their feet for an occasional dance, Chiodo Fisso is no raging party. This establishment is clearly dedicated to relaxing to great Italian guitar music – whether provided by the owner or one of his special guests – in an intimate setting.
Many local fans with a smattering of students and internationals, 20s and up.
Live guitar performances by the owner and occasional well-known guest artists. Check the schedule at the front of the bar to find out about upcoming appearances.
Peanuts and bar snacks.
Beer €5–€7, wine €5/glass or €25+/bottle, cocktails €7.
Any night for a relaxed atmosphere, or when one of the guest artists is playing.
