Drink Something Other Than Prosecco, at the Caffe Boteri
Venice is extremely well supplied with bars selling the delicious local wine. But I'm more of a spirit girl, and limoncello does nothing for me. So, I was extremely happy to stumble upon this superb little bar in San Polo. It boasted a fantastic range of gins, vodkas, and whiskeys—I had a Hendricks and tonic, since you're asking—and they had no problem with a 13-year-old keeping me company and sipping a Coca Cola. She was, in turn, extremely smitten with the Keith Haring–style art that gave the whole place an extremely contemporary edge. A fun night was had by all.
