    Located in the centre of Venice, minutes from the famous Rialto Bridge, Bacaro Jazz has been around for more than a decade and already feels like a much older favourite. The staff are gregarious, the atmosphere is infectious and the place resounds with the music of people having a good time combined with a swinging selection of smooth jazz tunes. The bar’s famed happy hour is between 4pm and 7pm and the well-made cocktails are potent and slip down dangerously easily. If you don’t feel like a Miles Davis or Sex & Sax, you can always float away in a Bacaro Dream. There’s also a wide selection of beers, but if grape rather than grain is your taste, the wine list is exploding with excellent Italians from regions all over the country. The food is decent, standard fare, with a few Venetian specialities thrown in and a strong slant towards local seafood, from grilled seabass and baked fillet of turbot to grilled king prawns in garlic. The restaurant is open from 1pm to 2am, which means it has the advantage of being the latest to close in Venice ideal for a meal after a boozy night out. And if you have a great time here, don’t be afraid to write it down. The walls of the bar are already scrawled with glowing customer testimonials and art work contributions. All in all, Bacaro is the perfect place to while away a long summer evening in this most romantic of cities.
