What is the Arts Inn?
The Arts Inn is a new concept in Florence.
There are a few art galleries, and there are many wine and cocktail bars....
But there is no other place that combines art, music, ambiance, good wine and cocktails as the Arts Inn does.
The Arts Inn is a container for visual art, where artworks are hanging everywhere: contemporary oil still life, vintage mid 1900s portraits, contemporary original etchings.
But it is very far from the traditional concept of art gallery, with bare spaces and white walls.
The walls are coloured – like it was custom in centuries past to incorporate the work on display.
The small space of 35 square meters was designed so as to enhance perspective and create several different viewpoints and interesting corners.
It is not simply a gallery, but a place to promote the arts in a truly unique setting.
A lot of the paintings on permanent display are the work of the Artist who conceived the idea and designed the space in every little detail. See his work here.
But other artwork will be displayed and exhibited for sale, so Artists are welcome to apply to show their work here.
Music has a prominent place in the gallery – it is not chosen casually or from commercial playlists, but carefully hand-picked.
Rock, blues, jazz, ambient, funky, electronic, from the masters of the '60 and '70s such as Pink Floyd, Beatles and Stones to more obscure gems, from progressive art rock to contemporary authors.
And then, naturally, you can sit and enjoy a glass of local red wine, a gin and tonic with our special selection of artisanal Italian gins, or a classic cocktail.
So, come to the Arts Inn, whether you love art and music, or you desire a cozy place to enjoy a drink and a welcoming atmosphere.

The specialty of our bar is our selection of Italian artisanal gins: we have the best British and international gins (Tanqueray, Monkey 47, Hendrick’s) but we especially like to propose the best Italian distilleries have to offer, a range of original and classy spirits, such as Bordiga Gin Rosa, Gin del Professore, and a few truly local premium products, from the Tuscan hills.
But if you prefer other spirits, there will be no problem getting a Moscow Mule or a Mojito and other classic cocktails.
Belgian Leffe bottled beer, Italian Nastro Azzurro, and a few digestive liqueurs as limoncello, grappa, amaro are also available.
If you have an appetite we can prepare platters of pecorino cheese and cold cuts.
