Haven't been around much so I don't know if this is new news-- From what I can tell they opened in February.

Sounds as it's just the second "place" named after LC (Edmonton: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=36087), right?

Current rating on facebook = 4.9, based on 37 reviews; must be good for a local bar.

Their youtube channel features one video at the moment, anyway, it's a complete recording of a concert:

Even a LC cover was played (guess which song)...

Yet another reason to visit Italy (in addition to the fact that Italy is probably best place in the world).

The bar looks really good. Those fancy wine glasses (photo by Gaia Passamonti, via facebook), etc.

The place in Edmonton (Cohen Corner, it was called) is permanently closed now -- I don't think it was in business for very long.

How sad. The last event announced on their facebook page was in November 2015, after less than a half-year run.
Bowie Bar in Saint Petersburg has worked for seven months.

Let's hope Verona would have more luck: own musical stage, busy concert schedule, such details as branded wine glasses - all that looks promising!

I recently went to this nice café. Very good paninis and great selection of wines.
Often also live music. Drop by if you are in the area! The owner said she had had many Cohen fans.
Pietro.
