Aperitif in Bologna? The sky bar with a breathtaking view over the city

A lively atmosphere, a huge selection of clubs and one of the most renowned culinary traditions in Italy: not stopping for an aperitif in Bologna would be a real shame!

The Emilian capital, as we have repeated several times, is teeming with music and events and offers citizens and tourists any type of leisure and entertainment.

During the summer season, when the temperatures rise and the only desire of those who stay in the city is to quench their thirst with an iced drink and wander around in search of fresh air, combining an aperitif in Bologna with a location suitable for hostile climatic conditions is certainly a winning choice.

With the NH Bologna de la Gare Sky Bar, all of this is possible, with the addition of good music and company.

Aperitif in Bologna: music, cocktails and the roofs of the Dotta

On the fifth floor of the NH Hotel de la Gare is the summer location of the contemporary bistro Flor, which every evening from June 1 to September 30 hosts a cocktail bar combined, on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with a DJ set.

At Flor, the aperitif in Bologna can be sipped on the red roofs of the so-called Dotta (one of Bologna’s monikers), with a breathtaking view of the skyline of most of the city.

Observing Bologna from above you will be able to enjoy a unique and panoramic perspective, admiring the entire extension of the city. An extremely fascinating complete view that will allow you to appreciate even more the historical architecture and the organization of Bologna.
