Our new tapas happy hour

Grand Hotel Minerva is chock full of surprises this summer. We did work on our rooftop to turn it into two beautiful terraces, called Pool & Solarium Terrace and Chiostri Terrace. We are happy to make some big announcements: our swimming pool now features more room for lounge chairs and a jacuzzi, and we have a brand new bar, 360 Three–Sixty. Our 360 bar was launched on June 24th for the Feast of St. John (Florence’s patron saint), and our new tapas happy hour, Time4tapas kicked off too.

The Pool & Solarium Terrace is for the exclusive use of guests who sleep at the hotel until 6:30 pm. The pool itself, which is on this side, remains open only to guests staying at our hotel.

Every evening, from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm, you can choose from a long menu of cocktails made by our bartenders to enjoy with a plate of tapas, samplers made especially by our kitchen. Each plate has three tapas and is different every evening. It costs €5 per mini-tray.
