CAPRI: Anema e Core
Near the Hotel La Palma off La Piazzetta in downtown Capri, a discreet doorway leads you to one of the jolliest taverns in Italy. Consistently bumping up against its capacity of 500 persons—many of them dancing on top of tables—Anema e Core is an energetic alternative to clubland, led by its rambunctious owner (and local TV personality), Guido Lembo.
Velvet Rope Factor: Nonexistent. Eat, drink, and be merry! After all, Guido always is.
In Good Company: It's a locals' hangout, but don't be surprised to bump into a celeb or seven. The happy, unpretentious feel of the place is beloved by many, including slews of Italian stars, Beyoncé Knowles, Giorgio Armani, and the omnipresent Naomi Campbell.
Hey, Mr. DJ: The sole entertainment comes courtesy of owner Guido, who sits center stage with his guitar and belts out sing-along favorites—the Italian Jimmy Buffett. He pulls the celebs up to the stage with him and gives—and gets—hugs and kisses from the regulars.
Sip on This: Limoncello, the local lemon liqueur (it tastes like citrus-flavored rocket fuel).
When to Go: Anema e Core opens the week before Easter and closes at the end of October—and comes to life once more between Christmas and New Year's.
