Fodor's Expert Review Kursaal Kalhesa
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Truly representative of the new Palermo, this is one of the most fascinating places to drink or socialize. Down by the port and the Porta Felice, it attracts an energetic, eclectic crowd of Palermitan youth for lively jazz, coffee, and drinks inside an ancient city wall with spectacular 100-foot ceilings and an idyllic courtyard. Interesting, if pricey, Sicilian food is served in the adjacent restaurant.
