Strozzi Bars & Nightlife
Via Tornabuoni, 64/R, Strozzi
Procacci, on Via dei Tornabuoni, was the truffle supplier to the Italian royal family until its dissolution. It’s the ideal stop for a glass of fizzy franciacorta and a tiny, soft panino slathered with the bar's signature truffle spread. Other menu options include a truffle anchovy spread and even a truffle artichoke cream, which is truffle nirvana. The extensive wine list is generous with the by-the-glass options.
Piazza San Pancrazio 1R, Strozzi
In the little-known Piazza San Pancrazio, Manifattura is quietly shaking up Florence’s sleepy cocktail scene, under the expert direction of master mixologist Fabiano Buffolino. The aesthetic is that of a 1950s lounge, replete with lacquered tables, suited-up barmen, and an impressive inventory of nearly one hundred Italian Amari. The menu is an ode to Italy’s older drinking traditions, full of Italian sodas, vintage liqueurs, and several classic prosecco cocktails that go way beyond the Bellini.
