Warm summer afternoons and nights are perfect for outdoor socializing and what better than great drinks and breezy terraces or gardens to do so? Head to one of these city hot spots and quench your thirst for the seasons nighttime fun or afternoon lounging.
Ferona Club Social: This speakeasy is both a restaurant and a bar with various seating areas, quirky decor, D.J, and of course a lovely and popular terrace. If you’re looking for a house party feel and lively crowd then don’t miss out on this Palermo centered secret, which incidentally reopens today- the challenge is.. to find it!!
Milion: This beautiful French style 3 story house was discovered by its now owners in 1999. They immediately fell in love with the place and decided to restore it and give it back its splendor. Today, this lovely building is not only restored but also working as a swinging bar with plenty of seating space (although it is quickly taken), great cocktails, and a beautiful courtyard, ideal for summer days. The bar also has a restaurant but the food doesn’t really stand out so we recommend going for drinks. Paraná 1048, Recoleta. 4815-9925.
Congo: Congo Bar is one of the hottest nightspots in the Palermo scene and there is good reason for it. Trendy locals line up at the door well into the night, as is usual in the city, to trade the entrance fee for Congo currency which can then be exchanged for the first drink of the night. Once inside, the brown and beige leather interior serves as a backdrop for the beautiful men and women who either mill around the bar, are seated at one of the hard to get tables or are enjoying one of the famous “Bossa Nova” drinks in the garden, the Congo jewel. Honduras 5329, Palermo. 4833-5857
Sonoman: One of the first bars to open with the Palermo boom, Sonoman promises good music, outdoor and indoor bars and seating and a loyal upbeat crowd. They also serve food and we recommend to get there early for drinks and good seating. Fitz Roy 1655, Palermo. 4775-7179
Olsen: Although Olsen is more Scandinavian restaurant than bar, it is actually a great place to go for drinks as they have an incredible selection of international vodkas, great cocktails, and one of the best outdoor seating areas in the city complete with comfy backyard sofa-chairs. You might want to try some smorrebrod whilst you’re at it as well. Gorriti 5870, Palermo. 4776-7677. firstname.lastname@example.org
