The Jazz Club is an historical club in Florence with live music shows where emerging talented and international well known jazz people show off. Going down a few steps you enter in a warm lighted atmosphere very similar to those French caveaux where it’s possible to listen to good music while having some snack and a good glass of wine. Next to the room where the box is, where people such as Gianni Basso, Marco Tamburini, Massimo Moriconi e Stefano Bollani have played, there’s another space where it’s possible to enjoy yourself while chatting and listening to the concert.
A part from traditional and experimental jazz, the club programme offers you some nights of Cuban music, latin jazz, and sometimes blues or funky sessions and on Tuesday night jam session + house band. Entrance is permitted only to club members and the card costs 5 euro including 22 free concerts a month during a year.

Open: Monday to Saturday, October to late May

‘You Are Beautiful’ nightclub is more of an international students paradise with loud music and skantily clad foreign girls combined with cheapish drinks, but it’s handily placed location and up to date music make it a good choice and make it still fairly popular with the locals! A well known spot for hip hop and R ‘n’ B, with a fairly high entrance fee, check out Monday night for a good boogie.

Via dei Cimatori 13
Tel: 055 292 002
Website: Andromeda
Open Hours: 10pm-4am Mon-Sat.

Andromeda has been attracting the crowds for well over 20 years now and has the motto ‘it’s always a party here’. It features a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere and the dance music ranging from RnB to techno is spun by the resident DJs. The clientele are usually international students and young Florentines in their 20s. The entrance fee isn’t too expensive either. There are also nights where you can sway to salsa and other latin rhythms or bop to rap or house…..it’s all happening here!!

This established club plays varied music and mainly attracts the young foreign crowd. Offering good drinks promotions, you can be sure of a great time here and being in the city centre means its a great after bar dance spot.

Dolce Zucchero
Via dei Pandolfini 36 – 38r
Tel: 055 247 7894.
Website: Dolce Zucchero

A typical english nightclub-with the same cheesy music and students looking to flirt! There are two floors (one plays cheese and the other hip hop to R’n'B) that are always full of definitely not sober students boogying away to the tunes. A card system is used and drinks can turn out to be quite expensive but remember International students don’t pay the cover charge!

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

Maracanà is a lively Brazilian themed spot for swinging your hips, half restaurant half bar, after midnight it turns into a 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 its late hours make it perfect for night hawks. 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 complete with artificial creek and three very real not to mention loud peacocks.
