Sorrento By Night - Cocktails By The Sea and Dancing Until Dawn

Find a place to stay

You'd be hard-pressed to think of a Sorrento without blue skies and eye-popping vistas, but in the evening, you'll find an equally enchanting city that draws you in with its warm atmosphere and endless cocktails. You can enjoy a typical Italian aperitivo with locals, take in some live music, or dance the night away at a club.

Bars and hotel lounges


When evening falls in Sorrento, locals and visitors hit up the bars for an aperitivo, a pre-dinner drink that can easily turn into an all-night affair. You can sit down to a Campari and soda, or even a limoncello, the region's ubiquitous lemon liqueur, at an outdoor café in the city centre and while away the hours people watching or mingling with locals. If you choose to enjoy your aperitivo at one of the city's many upscale hotels, you can expect stunning views overlooking the Gulf of Naples, as well as a selection of snacks.
