We went there after a local's advice that it's the only open night club in Venezia center. Overpriced (15 euro entrance, 200 eur for a few drinks), but interesting and good for dancing. Music was cool. Cant remember much of the night out, so cant say it was memorable but would probably come again when in Venice.

My girlfriend and I were told by our host that for nightlife in venice (for which there is almost none after 11 pm) we should check it out. I'm glad we did. As a working dj it was refreshing and fun to watch the dj ( who apperantly is the only dj and who works 7 nights a week) spin... More

This charming hole in the wall can be found near the lively Campo Santa Margherita. After stumbling out of Margaret Duchamp at 1:30AM on my first Saturday in Venice, my friend and I were determined to continue our night elsewhere and encountered a large group of young adults clustered in an alleyway on our walk back to our hotel.

Being the only bar that was open on a Friday night after midnight we went in here. From the start it was clear that the management were unconcerned about the patrons. There was open cocaine abuse... They didn't even bother to conceal what they were doing. There was a team of hustlers roaming randomly from group to group and one... More

We came here just for some drinks after our dinner a night out. Entrance was 12 euros but included a drink.. After that drinks were 10 euros each. They were okay.. Nothing too special. The dj was playing random music.. From reggaeton into Rihanna then to dance music. Fun to dance a bit. Pretty empty but it was Tuesday night... More

My husband & I visited here for fun after my birthday dinner recently. While I was seated, my husband went to the bar to purchase two drinks at 10 Euro each. He knew exactly how much money he had on him (50 Euro) and handed the money to her, she then didn’t give him change. As soon as my husband... More

i went a couple of times ti this club and its always the same: dodgy people, guys that are eager to spread their genes and old trashy music. Drinks are quite expensive and so is the entrance fee. Only go if you have a had a few drinks some place before.

This place was a fine but not extraordinary dance club. It could have been anywhere in the world. Nothing really distinctive.

Remind me to make an appointment with my psychiatrist very soon - I actually enjoyed this place! I'm well aware that Piccolo Mondo transports you back to the seventies through some kind of obscenely kitch "worm-hole", but I don't care. It's fun!!! And in a city where everyone's trying oh, so hard to be "cool", it's very refreshing. From the... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
