Students of Perugia, for nightlife that boasts international students and local Perugians alike, Dempsey’s is your new bar of choice. The bar is centrally located just up the street from Piazza IV Novembre and offers quality, inexpensive cocktails. It opens somewhere between 5 and 6 p.m. depending on Andreas’s mood and closes at 1:30 a.m.; stop in after a late dinner to continue the night’s fun. When you arrive, be sure to meet your bartenders, hosts, and entertainers (Andreas and his hard-working crew), and watch as they pour your drinks with skilled flourishes.
The haunt is small but has the capacity to store not only impressive quantities of top-shelf booze but also the crowd that gathers nightly to consume it. You will find the crowd overflow spilling into the streets and onto “the Steps” (a popular hangout located on the steps of a nearby church), so take your drink outside to meet some new friends.
