The Atrium Bar is the perfect location for lunch, dinner, or the typical Italian aperitif, afternoon tea, desserts, coffee and cocktails, in a vast sun-lit and decorative space in Four Seasons Hotel Firenze. Atrium’s Bar Manager Massimiliano Prili is a master at mixing both classic cocktails and developing concoctions with a flare as unique as Four Seasons Hotel Firenze itself, and together with Mixologist Edoardo Sandri, offers a selection of delicious and out-of-the ordinary drinks, from the Valentino, their take on the classic Negroni, to the Tiramisù Cocktail. In the evenings, live piano music creates a relaxed, informal atmosphere that extends outdoors onto the terrace during the balmy summer months.
