Murazzi and the river bank, Torino
Down in some dodgy bars alongside the river Po.
A strange place to be, but unique atmosphere. Watch out for the early morning happy hours.
Dress Code: A think it was a case of trousers around you ankles on the dance floor.
Murazzi are the Po River right bank docks from Piazza Vittorio to the Valentino Park. In the good season it is an entertainment area, full of bars and pubs with tables and seats under the gazebos, or simply on the quay. You may sit on the stony steps next to the water as well, and get a can of beer, or any other drink you like, and look at the people on the rowing boats, or at the ducks, swans and other aquatic birds. In the summer nights there are always bands performing live music and cabaret till very late, and many people strolling around. I like the place quite a lot. It is an embarking point for the tourist boats that sail the river, and the lodging of some rowing societies, too.
Dress Code: Informal, trendy, classical, grunge, punk, every style and everyone is welcome
In the summer, Cacao in Parco Valentino is the place to be. This huge open-air disco is built like a Roman Ampitheatre, with tables and chairs sloping upwards and a large dancefloor below, in the center. There is a chupito bar for cheap shots of rum followed by pear juice. Admission is free with a minimum drink purchase. Lots of stairs! And lots of fre parking at night!
Dress Code: Dress to impress in shoes that you can walk up stairs in.
Murazzi is an area overlooking the left bank of Po river, accessible from Piazza Vittorio which lays at the very end of Via Po.
Several bars and clubs found home in beautiful old arched warehouse spaces that were once used to recover boats and merchandise. They offer dance or live music, drinks and something to eat. Most places are upstream from Piazza Vittorio, while a couple are in the quieter downstream area. Here is "The Beach", a bar that features a free - you just buy a drink at average price - snack buffet starting from 7 PM. Not much leftovers after 9 PM though. This bar is nearly free from furniture inside and has a few tables outside on the riverfront. Music becomes progressively louder and people start dancing inside and outdoors. From 11 PM to 4 AM the place is animated with dance music.
Dress Code: Anything from street casual to necktie
Murazzi del Po is, for sure, the centre of Torino's nightlife. Here, you can find lots of restaurants, pubs, bars and discos, often crowded with all kinds of people. If you want to spend a nice evening/night , have some drinks, listen to some music, dance and meet lots of people, Murazzi is the best place for you. :) The high concentration of bars and discos offers you the possibility of jumping from one place to another, or just enjoy the music beat on the outside.
It is located on a river bank, not far from Piazza Vittorio Veneto, between Vittorio Emanuele II bridge and Corso San Maurizio.
Dress Code: Casual
