The classy yet laid-back Rix is a place where cocktails are serious business – the mixologists exhibit true professionalism, and craft both vintage and contemporary drinks of a very decent quality. Food is served for those looking to grab a bite, and the pizza seems to be much favoured.
Bars & Nightlife
Catania is a student town, and as such, boasts quite a few hip bars and clubs frequented by the local youths. A regional speciality in terms of nightlife is the so-called "lido" – beach venues well-visited by tourists and locals for sunbathing, swimming and water sports during the day, and transforming into bars and beach clubs after sundown.
