Rex Caffé

Bar in San Lorenzo & San Marco

A firm long-term favourite since 1990, down-to-earth Rex maintains its appeal. Behind the bar Virginia and Lorenzo shake a mean cocktail, using homemade syrups and artisanal spirits like ginger- or carrot-flavoured vodka, pepper rum and laurel vermouth. The artsy, Gaudí-inspired interior is as much art gallery and nightlife stage as simple bar. DJ sets at weekends and bags of fun events.
