"What should we do tonight?" - This is the most common question you'll hear in Capri's Piazzetta during the evening aperitivo hour, when the outdoor cafè tables are crowded with locals and visitors enjoying an evening drink. Any evening in Capri begins with a drink or two - either in the Piazzetta or along the cross streets of Via Le Botteghe - followed by a leisurely dinner and a few hours in one of the local hot spots.
Capri's vibrant locales concentrated along Via del Quisisana start to come to life around midnight. There are clubs, pubs, and "le taverne" on Capri, where there is live music each evening, and revelers can dance to the rhythm of the tarantella or Neapolitan classics like "O' surdat 'nnamurat", "O' Sarracino" and "Torna a Surriento".
The most famous landmark taverna on Capri is Taverna Anema e Core, owned by Gianlugi Lembo, the son of the famous Guido, who has been entertaining locals, tourists, and the international jet set with dancing and traditional music from Naples until the early hours of the morning for more than 20 years. .

What should I wear for a night out in Capri?
The epitome of casual chic, on the island of Capri you can feel free to dress as you please. Only in a very few restaurants (for example in those of the island's 5 star hotels) will guests be asked to observe a formal dress code. For the ladies: leave your high heels at home, stilettos are out of place (if not downright dangerous) on the island's steep cobbled streets. Follow Jackie Kennedy's example and treat your tootsies to a pair of Capri-made flat sandals instead!
