Where to have an aperitif in Argentario

Addresses to remember for an atmospheric sunset happy hour

After a day of sunshine, long walks on unspoilt beaches and diving in clear seabeds full of fish, there is no better way to continue relaxing than with a nice drink enjoyed in front of a beautiful sunset. So let us take you on a tour of the cocktail bars that offer the best aperitifs in the Argentario, amid traditional flavours, fresh fish and cool drinks.

If you are still hungry after your aperitif, here is our list of the best restaurants in Monte Argentario. Here instead the most beautiful beaches in Argentario.

Barakà Lounge Restaurant
Via Vincenzo Gioberti 78 – Orbetello
ph. +39 392 8904686

In the heart of Orbetello, the strip of land that serves as the gateway to Argentario, the cocktail bar and bistro Barakà offers a happy hour with a traditional flavour but with international contaminations, Thai above all. You will also find waiting for you a wide selection of gins that the bartenders will passionately illustrate and a truly original cocktail list.


Tuscany Bay Beach
Strada Provinciale della Giannella, 217 - Orbetello
ph. +39 0564 1795965

Lido and club surrounded by a hectare of garden and overlooking the beautiful beach of La Giannella, which made Pino Daniele fall in love with the beauty of the Maremma and convinced him to make his home there in the last decade of his life. Great music to cheer customers up, fantastic cocktails to enjoy in the exclusive gazebo-privacy on the beach and tasty seafood that is always fresh.

Sparkling American Bar
Via del molo, 3 - Porto Santo Stefano

Located just a few steps from the sea, the Sparkling American Bar impresses with the originality and care with which it prepares its cocktails. The bar's strong point is its original 'circular consumption' system: discarded ingredients are imaginatively reused: fruit and vegetable peels become the base for chutneys, tonics that are no longer effervescent are infused with jasmine, and so on. Even the service is environmentally friendly, the aperitif snacks are served in disposable boxes made of recycled paper.

Il Grottino Cocktail Bar
Via del Molo - Porto Santo Stefano
ph. +39 334 765 3408

On the waterfront of the old harbour in a postcard-perfect location, the Grottino Cocktail Bar uses high-quality spirits to make unforgettable cocktails but also serves excellent bubbly! The food, however, will also leave its mark: absolutely try their fresh seafood, especially the raw fish.
