Several choices of grappas and other cocktails. Always crowded on wednesdays. Good to meet friends in the weekend and drink something together.

It is a great place in a nice pedestrian zone. They have tables outside, but also the area indoor is fantastic. They have many different drinks, and a huge amount of different kind of rum. It is very well located, however the staff is not always nice.

Here you can have a seat on Viale XX Settembre and grab a drink from the huge selection they offer. There's always a nice, social-friendly and convivial athmosphere as everyone goes there with friends. :) Try it, you won't regret!

La preferita is a very nice place to go with friends and have some drinks. Although the place is very small inside, it have many tables at the terrace which is usually crowded as it is one of the places more frequented by the local youth.

If you like rums (or grappas), this is the place for you. You can find the best bottles in a nice "piratesque" environment. It is usually crowded and it is better to avoid wednesday, when it is almost impossible to reach the bar.

I must preface this review with one simple point...I NEVER review bars. It's always hotels and restaurants for me. However, whenever I travel to Trieste on business, I always make a point of visiting La Preferita 1991 for either a pre-dinner aperitif or an after dinner digestive. La Preferita is a small locale that has room for 100 people upstairs... More
