Where do you go out at night in Venice? When you hear this question, the first answer is Campo Santa Margherita. Since forever, this beautiful campo in the heart of the Dorsoduro quarternot only represents the principle pathway to the Zattere and Accademia but also the perfect place to meet up and enjoy the city until late.
All of the campo infact is surrounded by bacari (bars), osterie, and restaurants that guarantee an infinite number of choices for whoever wants to pass a fun night in company. One of the most loved campo’s of university students in Venice, Campo Santa Margherita fills up by late afternoon during the ”Happy hour”. Young Venetians – and not only – crowd around their favorite bars occupying the many tables and chairs scattered about the campo.

Historical bars, or traditional bàcari and modern bars are lined along the campo in alternation, there are also several benches placed under the shade of trees. If you need to choose the right place for you, for a traditional experience you could orient yourself towards the historical Caffé Rosso (perfect for morning coffee) or for some cicchetto (venetian snack), head for the Osteria Bifora; for a good spritz head over to Ai Do Draghi, under the unfinished bell tower (by the Santa Margherita Auditorium, where important events are held), while for a good cocktail it is best to try the popular Caffè Margaret Duchamp.
