This market is the only one that stays open until late, attracting a lot of young people who meet here to organize their evenings. Other meeting places are Piazza Olivella, that is full of people and the aroma of kebabs and spices, and the lanes that spread out behind the Massimo Theater. Here are a few of the many clubs in Palermo that are popular due to the charming, elegant and original atmospheres. Cuba, a private club furnished in Arabic style can be found in the garden of the amazing Villa Sperlinga. Here you can sip cocktails while listening to lounge music. Cambio Cavalli is in Via Patania and is inside a seventeenth century building, where art and photography exhibitions by young artists are often held. Chill-out music at the Moro in Piazza Pottino, on the Arenella sea front: an extremely relaxing, intimate atmosphere, where you can sit on rugs and cushions in candlelight. Coming soon n.a Start the day with a rich breakfast or local homemade food before strolling to the characteristic Borgo Vecchio to browse the stalls at one of the oldest food markets in Palermo.
