The Rari bar and bistrot is a really cosy place along the Arno river on the south side of Florence. When you cross the gate at the entrance, the first thing you notice is a swimming pool, but don’t leave, you are in the right place: the bistrot is inside the complex of the Rari Nantes’ swimming pool.
For me, the perfect season to have a drink or lunch is summertime, because you can have it outside on a beach chair — very relaxing. Don’t worry if you are coming in another part of the year: the bistrot faces the river and you can have a nice atmosphere inside even when it’s raining and you watch the river running.
Take a seat and order a drink or something to eat. I like their cocktails but also their Tuscan cuisine.
Sometimes there is also a DJ during the evening.
