A piece of Florentine history and one of the first American bars of its kind in Italy. Evenings dedicated to karaoke, live music and the dj-set, not to mention the excellent choice of beers and the delicious cocktails. The steakhouse is open until late at night and also offers many Tuscan specialities. International live sport, special events… all included in the free entrance. A must for anyone who wants to get to know Florence.

4 of us girls went to the Red Garter one night while in Florence. We started our night with some drinks and karaoke and then ended up dancing with the hundred of other people that were inside. This place is a lot of fun, although it is definitely jam-packed full of college students with zero manners. But if you are... More

In the group were people from USA, Autralia, New Zeland, México and Canada, the people on the bar were rude and racist with most of us, many of us were not allowed to sing in the karaoke because of one of the employees named Alessandro Tenducci was ignoring most...

Florence was our first stop in Italy and the Red Garter was where we spent our first night. Can't fault the service and the all of the people that hang out there seem to be of a like mind, everyone is friendly and there to have a good time. The Karaoke was pretty loose and I'm thankful that the fellow... More

We visited this bar a couple of times for drinks rather than to eat and both times it was fun with nice staff, good music, and plenty of choice of drinks etc. The food looked good and was mainly what you would find in an American diner and it all appeared to be at a reasonable price.

Great club, excellent music, nice people. Can't really name anything bad. Went here with a large group of friends and had one of the best nights in Florence. I recommend you to take the Fruit Tingle, gorgeous!
