Via Della Spada 10/r, Florence
Sometime in 1919 or 1920, the Caffè Giacosa was the scene on which Count Camillo Negroni and a young barman named Fosco Scarselli invented a drink they called simply the “solito.” This translates as "the usual." It was baswed on what Italians call an “Americano” but with an added kick of gin. The new concoction was renamed “Negroni”. Today, after a meticulous refurbishment project, Roberto Cavalli has reopened Florence’s historic “salon”, restoring one of Florence's most famous bars to the city. Open Monday to Saturday, from 7.30am to midnight.
