Overview
More
An al fresco bar with a difference. Positano’s newest watering hole is not just another seaside bar. An elegant raft suspended above the sea, vibrant with the colours of the Amalfi Coast, it represents, in design and details, a unique convergence of talented artists and craftsmen, assembled here to pay tribute to the man whose impeccable taste did so much to define the signature style of Le Sirenuse. The result is a contemporary al fresco bar with an old-fashioned, quality-first drinks menu; a place for amore, for friends, for a post-swim aperitif, for quiet contemplation of all that beauty.
