Gosh: cocktails & pink flamingos in Florence

PHOTOS & SPANISH VERSION BELOW

Taking a cocktail surrounded by pink flamingos is precisely what happens in Gosh, the coolest (and a bit pretentious) cocktail bar in Oltrarno. I like to ascertain if its decoration is the result of an in-depth and well-paid interior design studio or simply due to the exquisite taste (or not) of its owner. In fact, it is noted that the owner of Gosh, Alexander Vartivarian, comes from the fashion world (he worked for Elie Saab and was trained in Polimoda). In Gosh there´s vintage furniture and the original cocktails are based on ginger, spices, flowers and mezcal, all served in metal jars, in my opinion, with too much ice. Not only the decoration of the place is the choice of Alexander himself, but also the menu and the music — “Gosh” is actually the name of his favourite song. Aperitivo, snacks are served between 18 and 21 hours. Cocktails are better when in twilight, in its relaxed atmosphere. They also offer boring cocktails without alcohol.
Gosh – Via di Santo Spirito 46R – Florence – from 6p.m. to midnight, even later on weekends.


Gosh: cócteles entre flamingos rosas en Florencia

Tomar un cóctel rodeado de flamingos rosas es precisamente lo que ocurre en Gosh, la coctelería cool (y un tanto pretenciosa) de Oltrarno. En Florencia, me gusta adivinar si la decoración de un local es fruto de un estudio de interiorismo pagado o del gusto exquisito (o no) de su dueño. Se nota que el propietario de Gosh, Alexander Vartivarian, procede del mundo de la moda (trabajó para Elie Saab y se formó en Polimoda). En Gosh predomina el mobiliario vintage y los cócteles originales a base de jengibre, especias, flores y mezcal, servidos en jarras metálicas, a mi parecer, con demasiado hielo. La decoración del local también es obra del propio Alexander, como la carta o la música; “Gosh” es el nombre de su canción favorita. Aperitivo entre las 18 y las 21 horas. Cócteles en penumbra en atmósfera relajada. También preparan cócteles aburridos sin alcohol.
Gosh – Via di Santo Spirito 46R – Florencia – de seis de la tarde a medianoche o incluso hasta más tarde los fines de semana
