Bergamo nightlife: how to spend your night in the city
Are you looking for Bergamo nightlife? The city is not to big, but it offers many opportunities to satisfy every taste and different needs.
Both you are on holidays and you are in the city for job, you can start your evening in a right way in one of the many locals for the happy hour relaxing with friends or, why not, meeting new people, drinking beer, spritz (a typical italian aperitif) or something else, all matched with music, dj-set and snaks.
In front of the Donizetti theater every friday night at Balzer, the patisserie that hosted on its table Maria Callas, Gavazzeni, Mastroianni, Gassman and many other people from the world of entertainment and politics, there is a rich happy hour as at La Marianna, the historic cafè in the Upper City.
During summer nights there are open air parties and aperitif, for example on the Venetian Walls where there are open air pubs from which the outlook is very striking.
In the city there are also unmissable places for nightlife lovers, where they can eat something good at every time during the night. In via Bonomelli at Zucchero & Sale take-away you can taste croissants stuffed in that moment with marmelade, cream and chocolate, pizzas and sandwiches 24hours.
The Donizetti theater, inaugurated at the end of the Eighteenth Century and dedicated to the composer from Bergamo Gaetano Donizetti, has always stood for great traditional operas, as well as serial events over the years as instance Bergamo Music Festival. There are a lot of shows from Bergamo Jazz Festival to the season of Operetta.
For romantic people, we suggest to reach San Vigilio hill by the cable car and have a walk in a rarely visited location, maybe at the sunset enjoyng the beautiful outlook over the city.
Entertainment in Bergamo? Even in a small city you can have fun: theater, classical music, aperitif, romantic dinners, jazz shows, walks and open air parties in order to satisfy every taste and need.
