You'll find a wide variety of nightlife locations in Florence. But the Santa Croce area offers some of the best establishments available for you to sit back and enjoy a cocktail in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
No spot is better for this than Moyo, only about a 10-minute walk from the city center and one of the most popular locations for cocktails.
Moyo boasts a fun atmosphere with a modern décor and a young crowd who's looking for a good time out. It's a staple of both expats and locals alike, so you'll often find it busy every night of the week.

Moyo is one of the best locations in the city to find some creative and delicious cocktail options. You'll find everything you could ever want on their menu.
Plus, the bar staff has a good idea of how to make an excellent drink with just the right ratio of alcohol to other ingredients. They're happy to help you decide on an option for the evening or to recommend a glass of wine.
The best part about the drinks here is that they are all reasonably priced. You can find a unique concoction for a modest amount. For example, wine usually starts at €7, while you can find some Italian beer for €4 or €5.
One of the reasons this hot spot is so popular is because of the astounding buffet of aperitivo that the establishment delivers throughout the evening. There are plenty of different traditional snacks to keep you going through the night, including pasta, mini-pizzas, couscous and others.
Whether you plan on a quick snack before choosing to dine somewhere else or finger foods to get you through the night, you might want to consider Moyo as a quick location to try some different foods and to enjoy some time talking with friends over a drink.
They also have heated outdoor seating, and you'll find this a popular area to hang out when soccer (or football, to the Italians) season has begun. You'll want to get there early in order to grab a drink and find a spot before it gets too crowded.
Moyo prides itself on being a bit out of the ordinary, but there are plenty of regular food and drink options to keep you satisfied if you don't feel like venturing beyond your usual choices.
Moyo is open every day from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m., and then until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
