We are thrilled to welcome one of Italy’s most renowned bars, Il Locale, behind the bar at Quaglino’s for a one-night-only takeover on Wednesday 3rd April. 

Il Locale will bring over some of their best-loved cocktails in a bespoke menu, which will also include some classic cocktails from our very own Science of Sustainability menu. Il Locale comes to London for the first time, ahead of Florence Cocktail Week (6th-12th May).

Together, our bar teams will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Negroni and we will be serving both our own  Quaglino’s negroni , created by Federico Pasian, alongside Il Locale’s equally popular negroni in Florence.

Join us at the bar from 5pm and get a taste of Florence alongside our new delicious bar snacks and live music on the evening.

Full menu to be announced very soon, stay tuned!

Advanced booking recommended if you would like a table in the bar. Saluti!


About Il Locale

Il Locale is Florence’s latest restaurant, in the historic city center.  Located in Via delle Seggiole, between the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and Santa Croce, a few steps from the Museum of Bargello and the Casa di Dante Alighieri, the prestigious building was once part of the Palazzo delle Seggiole, first constructed during the Italian Renaissance.

Locale’s modern take on traditional cuisine and expert blending of contemporary design within its fifteenth century interiors together offers diners a unique culinary experience. Interiors designer, James Short, takes patrons back to the Medici court of the Grand Duke Cosimo I creating a place for commune and conversation while 28 year-old chef Fabio Silla’s Italian culinary menu touches upon Tuscany’s vast region with dishes modernized through his ideas, inspirations and culinary technique.

The central bar is the main attraction finished in black zinc, centered in the garden, the bar design recalls the cocktail lounges in Paris from the late 70s.
