    L'Olandese Volante - Pub in Venice.

    Party Earth Review Stained glass windows, dark wood, dim lighting, and a nautical décor combine to create a masculine yet cozy atmosphere at L’Olandese Volante (The Flying Dutchman), an English-style tavern named for the ghost ship of lore doomed to sail the seas forever – an allusion, perhaps, to Venice itself, the mysterious eternal city ... more

    Piccolo Mondo - Club in Venice.

    Party Earth Review One of the few late-night discos in Venice, Piccolo Mondo is a semi-exclusive club that attracts a wild crowd of night owls with no consistent demographic save for their common desire to dance until the wee hours.

There’s an important thing to remember about bars and clubs in Venice: conversation is king, and the type of bar-hopping that goes on here has evolved to facilitate this favorite pastime.

Whether at a casual pub or a swanky lounge, the beverage culture has nurtured a population of nibblers and sippers, and for Venetians – who’ll admittedly drink at any hour – the daily bar ritual comes to a peak during l’ora dell’aperitivo.

This is the prime social hour – the Italian Happy Hour, if you will – when friends gather at drinking dens and cafés to chat, wind down after a day’s work, or wind up for a night out at the bars and clubs over pints, ombre (small doses of wine), and bar snacks. Most people stand around the bar – to avoid the ubiquitous table surcharge – and the crowds at many of these cramped locales spill onto the street to create an animated atmosphere that makes for a good start to a hearty sampling of Venice’s nightlife.
