Night life starts to rumble early.

Porto Antico night life starts at happy hour: appetizers, drinks, beers and real delicacies for a before dinner cocktail along the piers at sunset.

There are so many clubs and bars to choose from, each with a different atmosphere and a special appetizer menu. If you prefer classic flavors, Tre Merli and Bigo Café will welcome you with “frisceu” and cheese focaccia; if you’re looking for rustic dishes including quality meats and cheeses, the Le Bistrot Du Port  are cozy corners you cannot miss.
The old english style aperitif with quality beers awaits you at La Goletta. Yet, typical Neapolitan flavors can be found only at Rossopomodoro where there are so many delicacies such as bruschetta, buffallo mozzarella and fried specialties one is spoilt for choice.

Open all year round, these restaurants are warm and cozy in winter and give their best in summer when the mild climate lets you grab a drink outdoors while listening to background lounge music.

Porto Antico rocks.

In summer days are longer and Genoa comes to life. So does one of the most animated clubs of the city. From your happy hour mojito to the coolest night show, enjoying a grilled fish dinner, the Banano Tsunami is the perfect summer hangout for teens and grads.

University night every Wednesday opens the week of live DJ Sets for dancing on the floating barge with the best commercial house sets and live unsigned artists’ concerts. 

If, after dancing, you’re still not tired you can continue the evening at One Eyed Jacks, the place that will creepily welcome you in pure Twin Peaks’ style where, if you dare, you can order a “Laura Palmer”.

Romantic evening.

If you don’t feel like dancing, you can spend a romantic evening under the stars and view Genoa’s sparkling city lights.

After a dinner for two enjoying night views of the city, get inspired by the pier and the lazy creaking of the boats on the docks of Calata Gadda. Here you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the harbor and the lantern-lit cruise-liners departing from the terminal, packed with dreamers.

Take a few pictures, a short chat and end your evening sitting on The Space Cinema‘s comfortable armchair, Porto Antico’s multiplex cinema. Choose the latest new movie releases, a live musical event or an art film; make no mistake, the charm of the Big Screen never dies.
