Bacarando in Corte dell’orso – The fancy spritz

Close to Rialto bridge it’s easy to lose your bearings while carried away by the walking crowds. I am very good at getting lost, and the first time I came to la corte dell’orso was because of this skill.

Slotted among two buildings, this bacaro is a bit different from the other ones in Venice because of its well-finished appearance and its large choice of wines and cicheti;

The bar has elegant furniture and a lot of space for Venice’s standards. It is really cozy and there is also a beautiful patio just over the main room.

I really appreciate the place’s attitude, because it allows customers to completely enjoy the company and to live the aperitif in different ways; if tables inside or in the patio are not free, the colonnade just before the entrance is a good alternative, there are small shelves even there.

There is a very wide selection of wines, with remarkable labels from the wine cellars of Veneto region; cicheti are many and refined as well, made with fish, meat, tasty cheese, vegetables and more. 

Moreover, if I want to enjoy some good music, on Wednesday night there are live events, usually jazz music, that create a great atmosphere.

Prices are a bit higher than the standard at other bacari and sometimes the waiting is quite long, but the taste of food and drinks is worth it.
