Volume Bar in Florence

Great cocktails, Value

With its terrace on lovely Piazza Santo Spirito, great drinks, and good food, Volume is one of the most popular cocktail bars in the Oltrarno neighborhood south of the river. It's housed in an ex-woodworking workshop that specialized in hat forms and shoe lasts, and there are still lots of models sharing the shelf space with books, magazine, and the daily papers. It's a popular place for breakfast and a light lunch (juice bar, French-style crepes, soup, salads, really good sandwiches, and cakes), but the crowds really pile in around at aperitivo hour, around 7 p.m., when the music cranks up and the cocktail shakers get going in earnest. Plonk onto a high bar stool, order an Americano (Campari, Martini rosso, soda, and a twist of orange), graze on the bar snacks, and enjoy the Oltrarno buzz.
