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.

We had a great time in this place, singing karaoke, dancing and having great drinks! And all for very good prices! A real fun atmosphere for meeting new people and having a good time.

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!

Ventured into this place late one night when I was out with a bunch of fellow american students in Florence. On this night, a Friday night, it was packed to the gills. There were a TON of people in the front room that spilled out onto the sidewalks even. We made our way into the bar and danced our way... More

I was brought here on a Contiki tour. The bar was a lot of fun, they definitely cater to the North American youth crowd. The Karaoke was a lot of fun as there was a big crowd of rowdy people who were having a great time. The drinks were good and pretty strong. Fun place, but be warned that there... More

Came here on a Friday night when they were doing karaoke and it was a good time. There was happy hour until 21:30 with fairly reasonably priced drinks. The service was quick and the drinks were good. The only trouble we had was finding a taxi after leaving the bar, we had to walk a few blocks to catch one.
