A piece of Florentine history and one of the first American bars of its kind in Italy. Evenings dedicated to karaoke, live music and the dj-set, not to mention the excellent choice of beers and the delicious cocktails. The steakhouse is open until late at night and also offers many Tuscan specialities. International live sport, special events… all included in the free entrance. A must for anyone who wants to get to know Florence.

Had one of the best nights of my life here. Everyone gets really wild in there, the karaoke was really fun. Have already told other travellers to go once they are in Florence!

This appears to be party headquarters for the foreign students living in Florence with a crazy Karaoke scene that you get to by walking through a tunnel to the back room. There is also a bar with a dance area, when you come through the...More

times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
