Best aperitivo in Firenze?

I’m not a huge drinker by any means, but so far the best aperitivo I’ve enjoyed in Florence is at the Fusion Bar at the Gallery Hotel Art.

Their craft cocktail menu will amaze you.  I had a “Medley” which is made with bourbon and other spirits.  It was very nice.

Of course nice nibbles (as above) are appreciated, but when they brought out the tapas as part of the happy hour, I was gobsmacked.  Great food!  Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures.  You’ll just have to take my word for it!

My companion ordered a smoked cocktail, and it really was smoked!

As you might expect, the art installations at the Gallery Hotel Art Hotel are typically pretty amazing as well.  Currently they have an installation of giant pin wheels gracing the exterior of the hotel.

And the very best part of the whole thing, for me, is that I live right across the Viccolo from the bar!
