Not much more than a food counter situated in a corner of Campo Bella Vienna, Al Mercá nevertheless attracts a constant stream of easygoing patrons who line up for beer, wine, and snacks and to chat under the warm glowing lights of the awning.

Though there is a tiny indoor space and a lone wine barrel outside that offers the only place to set a glass, the cheerful guests are content to simply meander and mingle outside this corner hub, creating a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere in which to enjoy an afternoon aperitif.

By day, the bar is frequented by bustling market shoppers, but the place is at its peak right before dinner when a crowd of mellow, unfussy locals and spirited students arrive in droves to enjoy Al Mercá’s open, conversational setting in the midst of the buzzing action of the Erbaria.

Tip from Emma:

Service is fast, so this is a good spot to keep your glass full and jump-start the evening. While the traditional spritz is fine, it’s better to branch out and try what the place is most known for – namely, an amazing selection of local natural wines at great prices.
