Tuscany Bars & Nightlife

Establishment neighborhood
Monteverdi
Via di Mezzo, Sarteano
Monteverdi is a hotel, a bar, a restaurant, a wine bar, a spa, and a handful of private villas, and at the time of this writing, there may very well be plans for an opera house under way. It is mind-blowingly beautiful and luxurious. It’s somehow a tiny village and an outrageously luxurious hotel at the same time. The new cocktail lounge, Enoteca, is “probably the best cocktail with a view in the whole valley,” says Voigtmann. And yes, that’s saying something.
Idyllium
Via Gozzante 67, Pienza
There’s nothing about a 600-year-old Renaissance town that would make you think that the cool kids took over. Then you walk down below the church. “It’s this hipster cocktail bar that was recently opened by a group of young guys from Pienza,” says Voigtmann. “It’s in a historic building overlooking the valley.” This is the perfect place to come after dinner: If it’s warm, sit outside, but the inside is just as lively. Order a Campari spritz, the less-sweet version of an Aperol Spritz, and snack on chips as night falls over the valley. The darker the sky, the louder the music. Fair warning: “It stays open late,” says Voigtmann. “Too late.”
