    La Claque: Music & Theatre

    by shaitan.guru Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Just behind the corner in the center of genoa nightlife Piazza delle Erbe there's a magic place in which a club meets a theatre, and the atmosphere is perfect to enjoy intimate concerts of indie bands or watching cabaret shows. its name is La claque, and it's a sort of rock/younger branch of the Teatro della Tosse that is in the same building.

    La Polena: Probably the oldest pub in Genova

    by Carletto76 Updated Jul 19, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I spent so many nights eating and drinking at La Polena, probably all my high school years every saturday night, but also now that I'm older I keep on coming here, among friends, a safe harbour for any night of the year!
    La Polena closed at the beginning of the year 2006, but fortunately they reopened, in a new, very beautiful, location few months later, so you can come back there again and enjoy the simple food, good beer, friendly atmosphere and also air conditioning! :)
    The owners are very nice people, the beers are good as well as the sandwiches, piadines or pastas, and it's one of the cheapest place to have dinner, at any hour (open every day till 3am).

    Dress Code: Really not an elegant place, this place is for "real" people, not for fashion shows! :))

    international poetry festival: festival internazionale di poesia

    by utttz Updated Feb 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The biggest poetry festival in europe is held in genoa each june. This year edition, the 11th edition, is still being "edited" so nothing is sure right now.

    Dress Code: as you like. you can find aussie VTers on the stage or indian ambassador in the audience, not difficult to spot a nobel prize reading with homeless attending, lou reed insulting a newyorker.... so... who cares about dresscode?

    After dark

    by jolou Updated Feb 6, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didnt see a great deal of the nightlife as we were only there for a couple of days and exhausted from all the walking by the evening!
    I got the impression that things are a bit livelier in the summer, but we may just have missed the best places.

    La Nouvelle Vague: A new, "bohemièn" place in Genova!

    by Carletto76 Updated Aug 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is really a GREAT place, just opened in July 2004 in the very heart of Genova, in a small vicolo crossing Via San Lorenzo.
    It's the first "eno-library" in Genova: you can read and buy books as well as drinking wine, coffee, beer, cocktails... or do the both things, like reading a book while drinking a good glass of Italian wine!
    One of the owners is a friend of mine, really a great guy, and he and his "colleague" did really a gread job, the atmosphere is fantastic, down underground in an old cellar, with columns and bricks on the walls.
    There is a HUGE selection of wines, of any type and price; unfortunately there is no kitchen, but there are some cold dishes too, so it's better to go there after dinner, and you will find it open till 1pm during workdays, and to 2pm on weekends.
    Go there while you are in Genova, and you won't be disappointed!

    Teatro Carlo Felice: Going to the Opera

    by Carletto76 Written Mar 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is Genova most important and biggest theatre, sited in Piazza de Ferrari. It was first built at the beginning of the 19th century, but it was hardly bombed during WWII and remained in ruined conditions until 1987.
    Now it has regained the old aspect on the outside, while inside it's a modern theatre, very particular with its "ligurian-style" house facades painted walls with small terraces where people can sit and watch the shows. Terrific acoustics for every kind of classic and sometimes also pop/rock music.

    Dress Code: If you go to the Opera you have to dress in a very elegant way, like in every opera theatre in the World!

    The Politeama Genovese is traditionally the "drama" theater in Genova, but you can assist also to pop concerts and caparet shows too, it depends on the evening. It has 1056 seats of which 930 at the ground floor and 126 upstairs.

    Dress Code: It's a drama theatre, so it is supposed to dress in a decent way, but also casual wear is ok.

    I quattro canti: Great beer in the old town!

    by Carletto76 Written Mar 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I Quattro Canti is really a nice, English-style, pub locaded in the heart of the old town, few metres down from Via Garibaldi, in the Maddalena district.
    You can find there Scottish and Irish beers as long as any kind of sandwiches. The place is quite small and very picturesque, with very good music in the background!

    Dress Code: What you want! ;-)

    Molly Malone's Tavern: Pure Irish style!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Molly Malone's Tavern is a typical Irish pub in the Pegli suburb of Genova. You can choose among 6 draught beers of the Guinness family and eat some good fish dishes, or just some sandwiches. The pub is really very nice and it's really a good choice to spend the night with a good beer! ;-)

    if you want to have a beer or a very alcoholic 'diablada' go to Gigi and ask him to tell you one of his jokes... If you like live music you'll love it becouse every night there's somebody from the custom playing guitar and so everybody starts singing together even if you don't know anybody...

    Dress Code: as you wish...

    Caprice. But if you prefer, Montes English Pub has good hamburgers and English beer. Also Harry's Bar is worth visiting.
