Cocktails with a view

Great views of Florence, yummy cocktails and a very random collection of songs played by the DJ made for a very fun night out.

Despite a great setting (Piazzale Michelangelo is MAGICAL) and a very nicely distributed space, Flò has huge shortcomings when it comes to three major points in going out for an aperitif: Price, quality of drinks and quality of food. All of them are rather disappointing, despite the presence of a "live cook" that makes some meat skewers (but he's attacked... More

I mean the place has potential. the cocktail it was normal (I don't know how much because my friend payed for me). The music was ok... More

This lounge is a kind of place which they look at you first and then they choose if you can or cannot get into it and I think it is nasty.

We really enjoyed it! We were let in without reservation, despite a long queue. The place is busy so you may wait to be served, as they do not have enough waiters. It is Italian classy placa and everybody is nicely dressed. We stayed for one drink and it was ok. Nice view and there is Italian summer feeling for... More

My friend and I, two 19 year old girls from New York, were looking for a fun party place in Florence. We heard Flo was fun so we took an €18 taxi over to the club where we waited on line for 2 hours because the lounge was over capacity and they were only letting people into the lounge when... More

We were told online by italian men to try and speak italian upon entry because this place "doesn't like Americans" after an expensive cab and waiting an hour and a half online we arrive at the door and like others say this place has a foot fettish! I was wearing a fancy dress with sandals and was not allowed in... More

Flo is a beautiful bar. When you arrive for a summer aperitivo, you are taken by the romantic view of Florence and the easy evening atmosphere. As a foreigner, you feel like you are in a special place. But soon, its ugly personality starts to show. As other reviewers have noted, the staff are not too keen on foreigners. They... More

Beautiful lounge bar with strong cocktails. It's a classy venue overlooking Florence so be sure to dress nice as you may very well be turned away if you're not! We've had no problems but always wear dresses & heels, they even let us skip the line most of the time. Unfriendly tourist, male tourist & female tourist not wearing heels... More

By all means walk to Michelangelo for the view but do not visit Flo. Apart from incredibly overpriced drinks and average music, the staff are rude and are blatantly discriminatory towards tourists. Don't waste your time walking there/taking an expensive cab. They'll turn you away for dressing "too casually" despite wearing a collared shirt, shoes and jeans and tell you... More
