Nightlife in Venice

Venice may have built itself a reputation as “the most romantic city in the world”, but at night it offers many opportunities for fun and entertainment.

Campo Santa Margherita is the official meeting point of young students and professionals; dotted with a great selection of restaurants and small bars, all offering outdoor seating, it is the place to go to sip a spritz, the famous local aperitif, served with fish or meat cicheti, the local tapas-like snacks.

From aperitif time to late at night, the place is buzzing with groups of young locals who gather to chat or play music.

An experience not to be missed is a tour of the Bacari, typical Venetian osteria or wine bar, where you can enjoy a delicious aperitif or a full course meal prepared with local products like “sardee in saor” (sardines cooked with onions) or polpette di carne (meatballs). Our recommendations on the best bacari in Venice are listed in an article of our blog.

The Piccolo Mondo club in Dorsoduro and the many nightspots in Venice Lido, a short waterbus ride from Sant’Elena, will make you dance the night away to the rhythm of the current hits. Lido’s bustling nightlife offers some of the best locations to dance on the beach until dawn.
