  • Fiddler's Elbow

    Florence
    Irish Pub / Sports Bar
    Fiddler's Elbow - Irish Pub | Sports Bar in Florence.
    Nov 15, 2012 Delicious pints, reasonable prices, gregarious staff, and cozy atmosphere make Fiddler's Elbow your bar away from home. "Tucked into a niche along the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Fiddler's Elbow serves up a tasty assortment of beers on tap in a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. I recently ducked into the Elbow (which has sister locations in other Italian cities) to escape one of Florence's torrential downpours. It's dark wood interior, long polished bar, and laughing barkeeps give the English-speaking traveler the immediate, reassuring feel of a typical Irish bar abroad, now seemingly a staple in every European city. Fiddler's Elbow has a lived-in, homey feel; a row of antique clocks lines the mantle above the bar, the wooden benches and chairs creak with the use of years. But while I expected to encounter the usual run of Guinness and Harp on tap, and perhaps a chalk-board advertising weekly live entertainment, what I hadn't anticipated was how international both the staff and the patrons were. Americans as well as local Florentines sidled up along the bar, some of them clearly regulars, chatting with the servers in several languages. The Elbow doesn't have a kitchen, but they do offer a better-than-usual selection of bar snacks and small sandwiches. The place had a late-afternoon tranquility to it; nights, however, look like another story. The assortment of reasonably-priced liquors live music, pool table, and special events like their Halloween Party promise a lively evening. Next time I'll be sure to head back after sundown. pros: atmosphere, staff, beer and liquor selection, prices cons: no kitchen menu" hide
