Aperitivo Time



Italy has played a notable role in reinforcing the glamor of cocktails with its deep sense of style and design. It’s a country perfectly suited to the ritual of beautiful presentation and elegant service. Luckily, you don’t have to buy a plane ticket at SRQ for this Italian retreat—15 South Ristorante Enoteca does it authentic and does it benissimo. Dispatch to an old-fashioned European happy hour and let the barman slide you over an impeccable pour as you pretend to be an extra in the scene of a remake of The Godfather. You can’t help but crave a classic martini or Italian aperitif—fully embracing the Mediterranean-esque surroundings and romantic atmosphere. Because la dolce vita becomes that much sweeter when you have an espresso martini in your left hand and amore in your right hand, as you undulate to the rhythm of live music thumping from the piano bar.

And now in full swing—15 South’s Summer Happy Hour Specials are happening daily from 4:30PM-6:30PM. During those prime hours, take advantage of the $5 Bar Appetizers which rotate monthly to keep it fresh. The 3-4-5 Drink Specials consist of $3 Domestic Beer, $4 Well Drinks & Imported Beer and $5 House Wine. A diverse selection of international live performers play each night for your aural pleasure. Don’t be surprised if the sense of free-spirited ease at this bar scene acts as a magnet, bringing you through the doors more than once this summer for happy hour and beyond. Cin Cin!
