“Too near a busy road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

After dining in town in the evenings, we would pass by this pub on our walk back to the hotel and it was always very crowded which we took to be a good sign. One evening, we popped in for an aperitif before it got too busy and while there is an outdoor seating area, it is right next to the main road into town and the constant noise from traffic coupled with car fumes, does not make for a pleasant spot to relax. Drinks are overpriced but in its favour, the staff are very friendly. Avoid the toilets which are cramped and not pleasant. Would not go back.

“Nice cocktails but no atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Not sure why this is highest rated nightlife in Sorrento. It did a selection of nice cocktails, but there was no atmosphere and the seats were very uncomfortable.

“Friendly and good for a catch-up...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

This bar was located right next to the hotel that we were staying to, so ideal to go for a slightly less formal drink!

It's a tiny little bar on the road, but it's got a nice friendly vibe to it. The owners are very friendly as is their dog! It's predominantly a cocktail bar, with a happy hour from 6-10pm (I think!) when cocktails are a bit cheaper. There's other beers on tap, as well as cider in bottles. As with all drinks in Sorrento, it isn't cheap (compared with the UK), but pretty competitive against everywhere else there!

There's free WiFi, which is clearly a draw for a lot of punters, who appeared hunched over their smart phones for the first 10mins or so of their visits as they caught up with everything at home.

They show sports and music on the biggish screens, but it's not overbearing, so not a problem if you don't like it. They had live music on a couple times when we were there too.

Anyway, if you want a quick drink before heading out, or before heading back to your hotel, this is certainly not a bad place to do it...
