Wunderbar catches your eye with their large outside seating area with bright blue chairs and tablecloths. it's located in the main piazza in the center of town. This place is fun to start your night at. Sitdown, order drinks and some snacks that come with the drinks, and hang out and people watch.
Dress Code: No dress code.
Panasia is a beach bar that turns into a disco, at night. There's also a restaurant near the entrance. The place is beautifull, facing the beach. The best days to got there, as I noticed is friday and saturday. I was told that in some days there are private party's or partys related to specific themes (like white night, where everyone are expected to dress white, etc)
La Giara is probably the best known disco in Taormina. At least it is the older one. It oppened in the 60's, as I was told.The place is a spot to go dancing. Hundreds of good looking people, the place is not big but the ambience it gives is cool.
Dress Code: Dress good, don't use shorts
So I say nightclub, but Marabu consisted of a lot of things. Early in the evening you can eat at their restaurant, and from what I saw it was open all night. They charged 10 euros to get in, and I think it included a drink, but the bartender gave them to us free if we had his own creation, the "Rossario Special." It wasn't too bad, but it certainly got us drunk quick. There were a couple of bars, a pool in the middle (no swimming though), lots of tables, and a few rooms with totally different music. They had typical American top 40 stuff as well as old Italian-American music (i.e. Sinatra) in the first room which was filled by all types of people of all ages, from 2 months to 80 years old. The second was mainly Euro-pop, and the third was enclosed and played house, both consisting of a younger crowd. The bathrooms were pretty disgusting, but the sink was amusing. This place had a huge crowd and great music, and when we left at 4 a.m. it was still packed.
Dress Code: There seemed to be no dress code.
Taormina has got loads of little Bars, Cafés and other places to have some drinks.
I loved to stroll along the "Corso" have a drink in one of the Cafés and just watch the world go by. Or go to the Piazza IX Aprile and enjoy the view over the Ocean (see pic).
Not a bad place. The Ex Tiffany is like a lot of clubs you'd see in Europe, and the Sicilians like to listen to their dance music really really loud. It might have seemed loud because it really isn't that big inside. Or at least not as big as most discos I'm used to.
The locals are friendly enough and will approach you, and that's good because when I we were there not many people spoke English.
Special note to the fellas: When you first get there earlier on in the nighttime it might seem like a sausage-fest in progress. But it gets better, I promise. At least it did when we were there.
Dress Code: Dress like you're going to a club. Sicilians and Italians for that matter are known for having pretty good style. If you don't make an effort, you'll probably get some glares.
The bars in this square belong to the most expensive on Sicily, but if you're here on holiday, what the heck once. You DO get a great view of both people and the surroundings as darkness falls over Sicily...Wunderbar is just one of all the names of places to visit.
