Venus Bar is one of the coolest spots where to grab a drink in the Gulf of Poets. It features an amazing terrace overlooking the ancient harbour of Portovenere and the lush vegetation of Palmaria Island.
If you’d rather sip your drink indoors, you can have an aperitivo under the ancient vaulted brick ceilings, which belonged to the XVII-century monastery that was once housed in the building.
Or you can enjoy wine and food in the charming tasting rooms called “Sala Magnolia” and “Sala Moby Dick”… the names are self-explanatory if you have a look at the photos 😉.
At Venus Bar, you can enjoy a selection of fine drinks and cocktails, including the special creations by Barman Alessandro. Here he is preparing “Woman in Love”, a cocktail that he conceived especially for the summer season!
This drink has a sweet and scented flavor. Wondering about the Recipe?
Woman in Love – The ingredients:
- Vodka Lemon juice
- Elderflower liquor
- Raspberry syrup
Another summer cocktail is “Mediterranean Breeze”, with the flavor and spirit of Mare Nostrum.
Mediterranean Breeze – The ingredients:
- Gin Mare
- A sprinkle of basil aroma
- Forever Tree Mediterranean tonic water
See you there!
