Bacarro Jazz is located in the San Marco district of Venice. Its nothing special but you get a good crowd. Open till about 3am, its one of the only places in Venice where you can just get a beer and chill out. Great place for insomniacs or just if you've walked your feet off.
There's no live music, but the do play some great jazz and blues on the hi fi system.
Not expensive(by Venetia standards).- happy hour from 4pm to 7pm.
Dress Code: Very laid back. Blue jeans and T shirts or just a pair of slacks and a shirt. Nobody,s judging.

I am not a nightlife person, at least I won’t go to bars and discos and party the whole night. So I can’t judge where the hot spots are in Venezia.
BUT – the best nightlife you can treat yourself with (no matter if you are a bar-disco person or not) is a trip along Canal Grande in the evening or night. The city has already this magic serene atmosphere without the masses of day tourists and an extra special quietness is hanging over Canal Grande.
As I stayed in Canaregio (thus north), I took my vaporetto 41/42 around the city’s east – and was rewarded already with magic sunset sights when we have turned west at Isola Santa Elena. I switched vaporettos at Arsenale and went on the vaporetto 1, direction Piazzale Roma (= end of car traffic). If you want to relax, line 1 is better, as this stops at every stop along Canal Grande. Line 82 stops only at half of them. The Palazzi just look gorgeous, and even more… I felt like an intruder or voyeur, as I could peek in the houses; something that is not possible during the day, without room illumination. It isn’t easy to take photos, though.
If you want to see more of beautiful Venezia at night, look at Simone’s page – she managed to get marvellous images (haha, as usual :-)).
If you have one of Venezia’s transport cards, it does not cost anything. If not, one ride will cost 6 Euro.
Dress Code: Bring something warm, it can get a bit fresh in the evening (well, I can only judge for May).

On my second visit to Venice I met a friend for some pub crawling. As there aren't any Italian pubs in Venice and we were in need of proper beer we decided to check out the local British and Irish Pub scene.
The Devil's Forest is a British pub with the typical dark wooden interior and coloured glass windows. They even have an old red English telephone box. The atmosphere is relaxed and it looks like many travellers come here to enjoy a pint or two.
On tap are various international beers from Irish, German, Belgium to Danish. Expect to pay around 4,20 Euro for a pint of Irish beer (2005). A limited range of pub food is available as well.

Some people said that the main problem of Venice is not have a night. I went every night to drink a glass in great atmospheres. The best one was on Saturday. We start in Ruca Rialto, like described above was great. Then we went to see St. Mark Square: really bored at night. Some painters with their works, some people walking and nothing else. When we return to Ruga Degli Orefici (the street next to Rialto Bridge in S. Polo) the atmosphere still in the best. There are a few bars. Try one. And then we can say: the night in Venice can be very interesting.

We came here every night to drink a glass of wine. It was always full, mostly with Italian young people. It has a great atmosphere and the people were very nice. They recommend us a local drink called Spritz. Try it. And you can drink a glass of wine for 1€… On Saturday night you can taste different antipastos and the atmosphere is even better. At the same time St. Mark Square was empty…

I have returned to this eatery every time I come to Venice. The staff is youthfull and just trying to make some fun while they work. The prices are working girl/boy prices so you can meet up with locals and not have to spend an arm and leg like other places in Venice. Some seating is available but many stand around outside and on benches.
Dress Code: Venices example of student/hippie chic. You can roll up on your skateboard and rub shoulders with the dreadlock crowd or young proffessionals

Wow amazing. It was like stepping back in time to enter this Casino. First if you are waling there it is off the beaten path. IF you take the shuttle from the Train Station it takes you right to the dock for the casino. We had fun playing roulette here. Its not at all like the casino in Vegas its like stepping back twenty years. Here they play for real not for fun. Italians are not allowed to gamble. You must bring your passport to get a ticket for play. IT costs 10 Euro to get a ticket but they in return give you a ten euro chip to play with. We had fun here cause we won but it was a nice time for those who like casinos.The website for casino doesnt have any additional info such as address. If you want more info you can email my VT account and I will reply.It is in the Carnieggo West. It is on the right if you are walking from the train station. Just past the third bridge you cross when coming from the train station. Its marked with a very small sign that is easy to miss. (We missed it)
Dress Code: Jacket Required for guys. IF you dont have one once you get your ticket you will proceed to the coat room where for a 50 euro deposit they will let you borrow one of the house jackets. We did not know this when we got there and the people there werent to friendly to tell us the rule. They give you the jacket and when you bring it back you get your 50 euro back....

il muretto is a niteclub which specialises in house music and has regular visits from the worlds top house Djs such as sasha, paul oakenfield etc etc... very expensive but worth every penny.
gasoline roadbar is the equivalent to jumping jacks in the uk... drinks prices are average and entry is free. (also check out the small beach bar behind it, i can't remember the name of it)
vanilla is a niteclub next to aqualand, and this plays various types of music from house to hip hop. prices for this place are between the price of il muretto and gasoline. (regular bus service runs here)
Dress Code: just don't go looking like a tramp!!!

If you’ve still got some money left after a coffee in St. Marks Sq and the obligatory gondola ride, this has to be another must do Venice experience, even if not many people know about it.
Hotel Cipriani is a 5 star hotel over on the island of La Giudecca. Short of sleeping with as many Hollywood directors as possible, this will be your only chance at living the life of a film star. Take the hotels private motor launch (probably the most well presented boat and driver in Venice) from the small jetty just to the right of St. Marks Sq. This will drop you in the impressive gardens of the hotel and San Giorgio bar, and although the best views are reserved for diners, you can still soak up the atmosphere and live music.
For views of Venice, you'll need a dinner reservation at Cips Club on the other side of the hotel.
Drinks (mostly cocktails) are about 15 - 20 euros each, so a round for two comes in at a wallet stinging 40 euros (£27), but you've also had a return trip on the best motor launch in Venice, and unsurpassed water views of the Palazzo Ducale & Square as well as the hotel experience.
Dress Code: One of the best hotels in the world, so hotel guests are obviously stylish and wealthy. Turning up in a West Ham football shirt will generally be frowned upon. And not just because of your dubious taste in teams.
