The bar is fun and quite well reputed for cocktails. We were there on a Thursday night, it was calm for such a nice area. The prices are ok and the staff super friendly. It was crowded of expat and not a lot of Italian's. The finger food is good!

Had drinks and a sandwich for dinner. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly and had English speaking members. Nice touch bringing a small tray of hors d'oeuvres with drinks.

In my trip to Bologna, I really wanted to visit this Bar, as I work in the industry and they got a very impressive 79th best bar in the world position this year. The bar itself is very nice, tiki decoration, a lot of rum, very nice back bar and nice location. The seating areas are very out of context... More

We found this place when looking for Somewhere to have a cocktail. The location is in an old portico just off Piazza Maggiore and when closed looks deserted. The bar decor is interesting and a little bit more expensive than others nearby. We decided to eat in the adjoining restaurant and enjoyed the menu which was not too expensive and... More

Half in, half out of a classic Italian restaurant, the location is bizarre, but the drinks are amongst the best tiki drinks i have ever had. Recommended.

This Restaurant is nice to have dinner we ordered Pizza and pasta, the pizza was good but nothing to be exited. The Pasta was very good. It is a nice place with good service, some will find it expensive 3 dishes and wine 51 euro.

Surprisingly, Bologna centre was busy on a Tuesday night, but we came across this bar within a secluded alcove near the Piazza Maggiore A good place to sit back and put the world to rights Cocktails were fairly strong, so you get your money's worth, that's for sure I'm sure the atmosphere is different on the weekend though

Sadly this expensive place is guilty of the above. Not only that, you have to beg for aperitivo to be topped up, even after ever 50 euros of cocktails. The service is below average for this price point. Not for real cocktail aficionados. More for groups of young rich people hoping to impress friends on Instagram

In Bologna, a beautiful art city of Emilia Romagna, walking through the historic center, in a street that directly overlooks the magnificent Piazza Maggiore, we find the Nu Lounge Bar with a wide selection of drinks created by the world champions of cocktails 2011, Daniele dalla Pola. Daniele, bartender professional who has over 10 years of experience bartending in the U.S.A, and his staff will welcome you warmly and will guide you to discover new sensations, thus providing an interesting selection of great classic cocktails and fantastic reinterpretations of them or creating exotic tiki cocktails (drinks of Polynesian origin). The interior of the bar is characterized by blackboards on the walls with suggestions for the choice of drinks, comfy sofas on which to sit and listen to great lounge music, a bottle shelves behind the bar with a selection of the best spirits, liqueurs and bitters, a fantastic collection of high quality sugar cane from the south American islands, flavored by the time Daniel and beautiful red chandeliers create an environment that is never trivial, but an adventure to remember.But the surprises are not finished, the Nu Lounge Bar is a restaurant, the menu offers a delicious selection of Italian specialties and pizzas to be enjoyed comfortably seated at the tables that extend outside the room, under a magnificent gallery and a magnificent square adjacent to a cathedral. The venue also extends under the gallery, with another 2 bars and other dining rooms and a kitchen with a stage used for the evenings with live music.
