Why locals love it

Volume is right in the heart of Santo Spirito. It draws an eclectic crowd, from young bohemian types to aging artists. Housed in a converted woodworker's studio, it's a cafe by day and a lively bar by night. With a solid roster of regulars, you're bound to see familiar faces playing chess or chatting with the baristas.

Why you should visit it

Volume's cozy ambiance encourages lingering. During the day, it's one of the few places where you can leisurely sip a cappuccino as you read or work. At aperitivo time (happy hour), enjoy a plate of finger foods over a bitter Negroni and better conversation. Seating can be scarce, but there's an upside: mingling with the locals is made easier!

Special tip

The staff is somewhat famously aloof, but they make a mean Moscow mule! Make it your nightcap—the bar is open late across all seasons.

One of my favourite places in Florence, either you wish for capuccino in the morning or for a drink in the evening, I love going there in the evening, there's often live music on weekends, the place is usually crowded, just like the whole piazza of S.Spirito - one of the liveliest places in Florence. Volume also has a hint of the past - an old jukebox with many CD's that often rotate :)
