A place to savour spritz and cicchetti
A bacaro is a Venetian traditional haunt, a middle ground between a tavern and a pub.
Venetians go to bacari mostly for the aperitif, namely before lunch or dinner. Many of Venetian bacari date back to centuries ago, and still maintain a traditional and rustic appearance, while others opened more recently (these usually having a more stylish and modern look). Bacari offer local wines and drinks (the most famous one is the spritz) and cicchetti, Venetian snacks prepared with fish, vegetables or meat.
Venetian bacari can be found in every district of Venice, but the most popular ones for locals are often located away from the most touristic ways.
