The best places for a truly special start to the evening

The aperitif has become an indispensable ritual, and Sanremo is no exception to the rule! Want to know the best places? Come with us.

Victory Morgana Bay

“Moored” between Sanremo’s two harbours, the Victory Morgana Bay is one of the most glamorous venues on the Ligurian coast. While the architecture is reminiscent of a huge modern yacht, the mood is typical of the most exclusive clubs. Business lunches, mediterranean and fusion cuisine at any time of day, and at sunset – thanks to the celebrated Bar Lounge, open from 17 to 22 – it turns into an aperitif destination, with delicious finger food and fabulous home-made cocktails.

Sottocoperta Lounge Bar

In Sanremo’s historic Piazza Bresca, the Sottocoperta Lounge Bar – as its name suggests – also plays on the nautical theme, but this time leaning more towards traditional warm wood decor. An essential stop if you’re looking for great cocktails, a wide range of wines and beers and delicious snacks and canapés. Treat yourselves, it’s always the right time for a tasty break at Sottocoperta!

La Bodeguita

A felicitous meeting of mediterranean flavours and cultures; mouthwatering Spanish tapas and fragrant Ligurian focaccia along with fabulous platters of cheeses and cured meats. All accompanied by one of the many options on the beer menu, wine by the glass or a classic spritz. La Bodeguita, open from 17.30 to 22.30, is a pizzeria and restaurant specialising in grills and hamburgers, but it’s also one of the most popular aperitif bars in the town centre. Try it and believe it.

Pico Centrale

A place where you can enjoy an informal but sophisticated atmosphere while sipping an aperitif and dining to a backing of great live music. This is Pico Centrale: a grill, pizzeria and cocktail bar which over time has become a hub for Sanremo nightlife. Be guided by the long-established barman as you choose a cocktail and get your evening in the City of Flowers off to a wonderful start. Cocktail bar open from 18 to 01.
