Florence Latin Bars


If you are looking for that special latin feeling and feel ready to sway the night away to salsa and cha cha cha, then just take a look below:

Salamanca
Via Ghibellina 40r
Tel: 055 234 54 52
Opening Hours: 5pm-2am Wednesday to Monday

Salamanca manages to recreate a great Spanish atmosphere, this restaurant/tapas bar offers great food and a lively, boisterous atmopshere. You are most likely to hear flamenco or other latin rhythms playing in the background and sangria and Latin American cocktails predominate the drinks offers.

Girasol
Via del Romito, 1r
Tel: 055 474 94

Samba, bossa nova, salsa-you name it, this hugely-popular Cuban dance bar plays it. Light snacks and exotic cocktails are served in a colourful décor. Live music is featured nightly and dancing tuition given in the early evening Wednesdays are all you need to get into the party mood. You can eat, drink, dance and while away the hours! Average cost of drinks is about 8 euros.

Café Mambo
Via Giuseppe Verdi 47r
Tel: 055 247 89 94
Opening Hours: 9am-3am Monday to Saturday

This little bar with a Latin theme is a relaxed place to hang out. During the day it is a quiet spot for food and a coffee but in the evening you can ‘sidle’ up for a cocktail and salsa.

Cafè Caracol
Via dei Ginori, 10r
Tel: 055 21 14 27
Opening Hours: 5:30pm-2am Tue-Sun; closed Mon

The only restaurant in the city to offer live music and themed nights also offers great Latin American and Mexican food, including excellent Nachos, Fajitas and Chimichungas and a delicious brunch on Sunday. It is bright and warmly decorated with red, yellow and orange colours. The combination bar/restaurant offers half-price cocktails and beers during happy hour daily from 5:30pm-7pm.

Jaragua
Via dell’Erta Canina, 12r
Tel: 055 234 6543
Open Hours: 9pm-4am daily
Website: Jaragua

People who are looking for Caribbean atmosphere and dancing should check this place out. At the beginning of each evening there are lessons in Latin American dancing for all levels of experience. Then, on the mini dance floor on the ground floor people dance merengue, salsa and cha-cha-cha. During the summer season the pleasant outdoor terrace is open to have snacks and drinks. The bar specializes in excellent cocktails, entrance is free – and drinking is optional.

Maracanà
Via Faenza 4
Tel:055 210 298
Open: Midnight-4am Tue-Sun, restaurant open 8:30-11:30pm, closed mid-June through Sept

Maracanà, a lively Brazilian themed spot, just perfect for swinging your hips, is half restaurant half bar, and after midnight it turns into a real latin disco venue. A good time is guaranteed – whether you are sampling the specialities of the house such as ‘feijoada’ or ‘churrasco con farofa’, or enjoying the various live acts which are put on after dinner, such as the ‘capoeristi di Bahia’ or the Luis Bocana dancers where the women are dressed up in bikinis and peacock feathers and men dressed as tribal dancers! Maracanà has great beers and excellent ‘cachaca’ (sugar cane grappa) and it also stays open late. When you get tired, there’s ample seating, a huge bar, and a big video screen showing anything from Caribbean beach scenes to soccer matches to rock videos. On the way in or out, make sure to pay homage to the re-created Amazon jungle courtyard with an artificial creek and three very real, and very loud peacocks.

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!
