Nightlife in Venice

Venice has a good selection of bars that are great for an evening aperitivo (a spritz or Bellini). The liveliest areas are Campo Santa Margherita in Dorsoduro and around the Rialto Markets in San Polo. Harry's Bar is a cocktail classic, opera lovers head for Teatro La Fenice and jazz fans cram into Venice Jazz Club. See if your luck's in at Casinò di Venezia. Venice heads for bed at around 2am.
