If you drink at only one establishment in Florence – do it at the Art Bar. This place is amazing. We visited twice during our stay and collectively sampled just about every drink on the menu. It is owned and operated by two brothers who make the most delicious cocktails and frozen drinks.
L’Art Bar is always busy but it is worth waiting for a table. There is no real food to order but the waitress brings you bowls of popcorn, chips and green olives to much on. I remember my favorite drinks were the Pina Colada and the Kiwi Margarita. Every thing is fresh and the drinks available depends on what fruits they have on hand.
Each drink is made individually and is over-garnished with an abundance of different fruits. When I was served my first drink – I immediately thought of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels – “I wasn’t expecting a fucking rainforest! You could fall in love with an orangutan in that!” But the huge amount of fruit garnish was a lot of fun cause you got to eat all the different fruits as well.
