It's called Kilowatt but for locals it's just 'Le serre'. It was born from the old greenhouses of Bologna's most famous gardens: Giardini Margherita.
You can go there for aperitivo, enjoy a dj set or to read and study during the day.
It's so far one of the most fascinating places I've ever been. Not only in Bologna.
What are Le Serre
In the 80s it even hosted two lions in a small zoo, but until 2014 it was resting in oblivion.
Then like the unexpected bud you see rising from a forgotten vase, Le Serre bloomed.
Year after year, step by step Kilowatt association put it back to life. Now you can find inside a co-working space, a vegetable garden, a restaurant, an experimental educational service and lot more.
Why go there
Do you like live music in a relaxed location?
Would you like to declare to your girlfriend between the flavour of sage and rosemary?
Or even if you just need some fresh air after a hot summer day around Bologna, the reasons to go at Le Serre are a lot.
It’s a great place for kids too, With lots of labs, summer and winter camps focused on creativity and outdoor education.
Why don't go
Sometimes you can find long queues to get a drink and no tables available.
Price of popularity.
Le Serre is not a place for a fast drink or people in a hurry.
But if you don’t have a lion running after you, just go.
Enter inside Giardini Margherita from via Castiglione 136. Pass over the bar and keep you right.
Every day from 8am to 12am.
