Think it closed down - either that or they renovated - either way it's the Goose Bar now and it's okay

We walked around a while trying to find this place, but couldn't find it - in its place at number 15 is a bar called The Goose Bar, which DOESN'T do custom cocktails like The Cocktail Bar. No fuss - we decided to try it anyway, and it wasn't bad, especially if you're just looking for your standard type of drinks. The bartender is very nice, does his best to serve you the best. He said they renovated a bit - not sure if this means they used to be The Cocktail Bar and changed ownership or if the Cocktail Bar has been closed for a while, enough time for the Goose Bar to open and change a few things - but it's a good place. They have some great board games too, which are all in Italian but the bartender was nice enough to tell us how to play them. We had a blast playing Ghost Blitz, here known as Fantascatti. Not a bad bar! But of you came looking for custom cocktails like us, and are intent on having them, this won't be the place for you. Otherwise if you're not fussed, give this place a go!

Closed down
Jun 2015
Spent a good while trying to find this highly recommended bar using the TripAdvisor app map only to find by asking locals that it has closed down and is now an Irish pub. Apparently they also do
cocktails but the Guinness & Magners crowd didn't seem what we were after! Would've been nice if the listing had been updated so hence the review.

Best bar in Florence

My husband and I had a great time at The Cocktail Bar. It was the perfect way to end our evening. The bartender/owner Jimmy made some of the best cocktails I've had.

Very good speakeasy

My wife and I stopped in to enjoy a cocktail before our dinner reservations down the road. Very friendly and extremely competent bartender. The best sazerac I have had in a long time. After dinner, we stopped back in for a night cap. This is a great spot to visit if you are looking to relax with a hand crafted cocktail.

If you are having ANY cocktails in Florence, you NEED to come here!
May 2014 • Friends
This place blew me away! Amazing cocktails at a super reasonable price. Not to mention the bartend Jimmy is one of the best cocktail bartenders I have ever met (and in Chicago I hang out with several bartenders who have worked for the Aviary.) We had 4 days in Florence and spent 2 nights here it was so good. Ordered about 12 cocktails between the 2 of us over the course of 2 nights and each drink was so well thought out and the tastes were so developed. If you go to Florence and have ANY cocktail, make sure you stop by here! Thanks Jimmy for such an awesome time, you really made our visit to Florence incredible!

AMAZING
Jimmy is the owner. But he doesn't flaunt it. He's the best bartender I've ever seen. And I've been in the industry a bit of time. The best drinks I've had in Italy by far!! Speakeasy feel of a bar. Very friendly and welcoming. I wish everyone could experience this place. I will be back!!

Hidden treasure near Piazza del Duomo
This cozy, small bar near the piazza del duomo serves the best cocktails I have ever tasted. They do not have a menu, the bar owners just make a cocktail exactly tailored to your own taste. Jazzy music in the background makes this the perfect place to spend a couple of hours.

Cozy bar, awesome drinks
Apr 2014 • Friends
This cozy bar is tucked away in a quiet street near the Duomo. We are lucky it sits right beside our hotel and was our go-to place at night. It serves awesome drinks, with good atmosphere with mostly locals and the bartender/owner was nice and friendly. Great place to hang-out.

Hidden gem with awesome cocktails
A total must visit! Jimmy was very creative with the drinks and they seriously have more ingredients stocked than most restaurant kitchens! He made the plantation, a Moscow mule (with cucumber garnish), a passion fruit drink (with real passion fruit extract), and a lychee martini (with a lychee garnish). I wish I had one more night in Florence just so I could go back to that bar!!!!

Hidden Treasure!
Great bar, a little off the beaten track, but well worth looking for! New York style design, with smooth jazz music playing, really creating a cool atmosphere. Tried some truly excellent and original drinks as well as some classics. The smoky martini was sensational! They had some fantastic whiskeys, even some Japanese ones which I'd never seen before.. We had a great time and would definitely go back if i return to Florence.
