Girl in Florence aka Georgette Jupe

I started this blog as a writing outlet for me to share what it is I adore about the beautiful city of Florence and Italy also sharing travel tips and stories along the way. Now 'Girl in Florence' includes advice for Florence, artisan features, interviews with locals, tips for life in Italy and travel posts from all over Europe. I'd love to think of myself as a fearless badass but If I am keeping it 100% real on this blog a quote that I sort of live by is"I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." I hope you enjoy this journey with me.

Art bar, best fruit cocktail in Florence

12.05.2012 No Comments

Every-once in awhile I really crave a good cocktail even though wine-prosecco is normally my first choice. I used to frequent Art Bar when I was a student and when I first came back to Italy and since it’s a small place on a side street, I just forgot about it. Thankfully a friend was visiting us this week and we were looking to take her somewhere special and Art Bar just popped in my mind. Fancy it is not, but imagine a place a bit bohemian, with local art exhibitions on the walls and the vibe makes me imagine Hemingway would love to have a drink here.

Artisan cocktails are the main focus of the bar, and you can order many different types of daiquiris, mojitos, fruit-cocktails, or a beer/glass of wine. The service can be described as “slow-food”, don’t expect your drink to come out quickly but when it does come, you will most certainly be impressed. They have happy hour every day until 9pm, 6 euro drinks instead of 9 euros (cocktails). Every table gets popcorn, nuts and bar snacks which is strangely addictive no matter how much dinner you ate before coming.

fruit cocktails, not just for drinking!

Open everyday but Sunday from 6:30pm-1:30am-2am. Rumor has it that Kate Middleton herself frequented this bar as a student back in 2000. Looking at the photos again, makes me crave another fruit cocktail with coconut and passion fruit. yum, enjoy!

Hi There!

Ciao, I'm a curious American "Tuscan Texan" who has called Florence, Italy home for the past 13 years and now you'll find me between Firenze and Zug, Switzerland. Besides the blog, I am the editor at Italy Magazine and I also work as an established digital social media marketing strategist (5+ years) as well as a freelance writer. You might have seen my articles in Lonely Planet and a feature on my blog in Forbes. This space is my way to share what life is like living and working abroad, as well as provide up-to-date true advice on traveling, eating and living in Europe with tips for weekend trips. I'm married to a wonderful Frenchman and we have a Florentine beagle who rules the household. Keep in touch with our adventures with your favorite glass of franciacorta or espresso!
