Genoa Nightlife

  • Luxury Yacht Charter

Discover Genoa By Night...

For unforgettable evenings away from the yacht deck, delve into these fabulous dining options, sophisticated clubs, and unique adventures.

Soho is the ultimate dining experience in Genoa, making the fashionable best of the day’s catch from the alluring Mediterranean waters you spend the day gazing upon. Choose from 300 wines to accompany the house favourites of oysters and sushi on the upper deck or head below to the seductively low-lit basement for full menu service. Modern takes on Genovese favourites are delectable treats, especially when paired with a bottle of the spectacular house champagne.

On special evenings, local discotheque Vanilla transforms into a Latin dance club, where dancers don their high heels for a night of choreographed dancing. Located in the Sturla district, professional Latin dancers work with members of the crowd to improve their salsa skills. Dancers are well-dressed and the evenings generally attract a 30-something crowd looking to dance the night away.

Senhor do Bonfim
For those looking to escape the confines of the deck and enjoy an evening of live music and dance, head to Senhor do Bonfim on a weekend, a waterside nightclub on the beautiful seaside promenade of Nervi.

A trip to Italy would not be complete without witnessing one of the country’s proudest and most exceptional traditions, and sitting on the balcony to watch an unforgettable opera. In Piazza de Ferrari lies the Teatro Carlo Felice, where Italian Rivieran fine arts began. As one of the country’s most popular opera houses, this amazing theatre has been putting on the genius works of Italian masters Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, and Mascagni for almost two centuries.
With seasons extending from mid-autumn to the late-spring, a perfect night can be spent surrounding yourself in all the beauty and drama of a real Italian tragedy.

Ballet Festival
If you intend to sail into Genoa in July you will also catch the International Ballet Festival held in the Villa Gropallo park, where the very best from the ballet world join in an amazing celebration of culture, art and dance unseen anywhere else.

San Remo Casino
No trip to the Italian Riviera is complete without a trip to San Remo, and sailing northeast from Genoa will bring you to a real high-rollers dream. San Remo’s world famous casino is one of Europe’s largest and at least one night spent in this majestic building is an experience not to be missed.

Chamin de fer, Trente et Quarante, French Roulette are all popular favourites while those looking to play Black Jack, Punto Banco, Fair Roulette or Texas Hold’em Poker are certainly not forgotten. For those not looking to try their gambling-hand, the Casino also hosts several theatrical, musical, and cultural events to satisfy every visitor. For extended gambling pleasure, dock in San Remo for a few luxurious days, or simply charter a private helicopter to land you amongst the glittering lights of the Casino town for an unforgettable night.
