Most evenings, crowds of convivial hipsters spill out of the door of this trendy cocktail bar and nightspot on the north bank of the Arno. It's especially popular in summer, when you can take your martini across the road and perch on the wall to watch the rowers go by. It's open for lunch, too—gourmet panini and megasalads serving. But the place really comes into its own around aperitivo time, when a huge spread of complimentary nibbles is laid out on a table. Later on, DJs pump up the sound level and a clubby atmosphere kicks in. The particular brand of hip practiced here is more friendly than forbidding, and decidedly upmarket.
