    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

    Al Mercá - Café | Wine Bar in Venice.

    Party Earth Review 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 ... more

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.
