A stylish bar and grill in historic Florence, Drogheria has quickly made a name for itself as one of the finest places in the the city for both modern cooking and marvelous cocktail-pouring.
Taking its name and the inspiration for much of its decor from the enduring tradition that is the Italian emporium (a place where nearly everything under the sun is sold, including spices from all over the world), the venue is truly a blend of new and old. Glossy deep-buttoned brown couches are contrasted by antique accordion lights, splashy artwork and white brick walls in one room, while another’s walls are home to retro vermouth adverts and vinyl records.
Drogheria opens early each day for breakfast and morning espresso, with service seamlessly transitioning to lunch and dinner later on. Food is of the fusion variety (think traditional pasta plates served alongside couscous and gourmet burgers), and is complemented by fresh, local produce at every turn. We’re all about the bar at Drogheria though, as it stays open late each and every evening and serves drinks with the same high level of attention as the kitchen creations. The menu effortlessly weaves between Italian standard bearers and trendy international tipples with a splashes of spice, and we can’t think of a better place to relax after a day taking in the grandeur of this Renaissance city.
