The Italian ritual of the evening aperitivo is a social occasion of drinks and nibbles at around 7PM and it’s serious business in Bologna.

Le Stanze

Le Stanze is a wonderful spot for aperitivo. The converted palazzo has high frescoed ceilings and
a beautiful, candlelit interior. Between 6-9pm, a buffet of pasta, bread, cheese and cured meats is the perfect accompaniment to a cold glass of local white wine or the ubiquitous Aperol Spritz before dinner.

The bar at MAMBo (the city’s contemporary art museum) is hip and, although slightly more expensive than elsewhere, the cocktails are excellent and they do a good spread for aperitivo.

Camera a Sud

Camera a Sud is a studenty place with a living room feel. It’s typically Bolognese and is a peaceful
place to spend an hour over a glass of wine and a book. Open late.
