Le Terrazze: the best bar and club in Ponza Island

For an unforgettable happy hour paired with the best sunset in the island, Le Terrazze is definitely the place to go.

Imagine a place where you can admire the sunset while listening to some cool vibes and sipping great drinks. Of course, Ponza has one of those places, it’s called Le Terrazze. And it just so happens to be my favorite place on the island (well, at least one of my favourites)!

The music is amazing, at the beginning there is lounge music played by a stellar resident DJ that perfectly merges with the sound of the wind.  As the sun starts setting, the music gets deeper, and that’s when the party starts.

Once the sun sets, a piano bar starts rolling in, playing 60s music and contemporary music, and inevitably EVERYONE starts dancing.

For drinks, they make killer cocktails! The Mojito and the Negroni are exceptionally good! But for the ones that like good-old fashioned wine or prosecco, those are great too!
