Whether you prefer to sip a cocktail in the beach bar, enjoy a good glass of wine in an elegant wine bar or celebrate the night in a trendy club, Lake Garda has the right establishment for everyone!

Bars for an aperitivo on the beach

There is always an extraordinary atmosphere on the beach. As the setting sun plunges everything into a warm, orange light to finally make way for the starry sky that blends with the many lights around the lake, the wonderful ambience peaks. Soon after, beach resorts and bars on the waterfront turn into lively spots with subdued lighting and great music. Here are some of the hottest places:

  • Golden beach - Spiaggia d'Oro at Desenzano del Garda

The "golden beach" is on the shores of Lake Garda and is ideal for an aperitivo, an evening with friends or a special occasion. On request, various celebrations such as birthday parties or bachelor parties can be organised. You can enjoy your aperitivo in a large garden overlooking Lake Garda, in comfortable armchairs and on elegant loungers with canopy. At noon, the bar turns into a restaurant. There is a large parking lot directly at the beach for the guests.

  • Chiosco Madai - Lido di Lonato del Garda

At the Chiosco Madai in Lonato del Garda, you will feel like you're at sea! You can enjoy a delicious aperitivo, listen to live music and celebrate a fantastic party with flip-flops on your feet and a sarong around your hips. From sunset, the bar becomes a popular and extremely lively meeting place. Admission is free in the evening, and the beach bar is also open during the day.

Lounge and wine bars

Wine lovers will know that the wine bars, enotheques and lounges around Lake Garda offer their guests only the best! The large maps show the best wines of the region, from the nearby areas such as Trentino and South Tyrol or the excellent wines from the south of Italy, which are highly sought. However, a good glass of wine should always include delicious food and great music, such as jazz! Here are a few addresses for wine connoisseurs:

  • Buona Vista Wine Bar in Padenghe sul Garda

It has a modern and casual atmosphere, perfect for an aperitivo or a social evening. Delicious buffet for different occasions can be organised on request. Another plus is the beautiful view of Bardolino and Sirmione.

  • Club da Baia in Brenzone

Homemade lemonades and aperitifs, cocktails, wines and sparkling wines are served here directly on the lake, on a terrace with a great view. Electro-house and techno is played every Friday from 8 pm to midnight.

Discos and clubs

To let off steam, meet new people and party with friends all night long, we recommend one of the many discos and clubs at Lake Garda. While some are open all year round, others focus solely on the warm summer months. Many of the parties take place in the open air so that you can enjoy the cool night breeze in addition to the music. In some of the clubs, you can also dance to Latin rhythms and even attend a dance class.

  • Discoteca Hollywood in Bardolino

Of the numerous discos and clubs at Lake Garda, Discoteca Hollywood is undoubtedly one of the best known. It brings famous DJs and special international guests to Bardolino.
