"An American from Boston, John Francis" Jack "Correa, following a journey that led him to fall in love with the Tuscan capital, decided to settle in the Florentine city, where he opened, at just 27, a completely new place for those times "

With more than 50 years of history, the RED GARTER was one of the first American Bars in Italy, and is today one of the most famous bars in the country, also known overseas. On May 23, 1962, in the heart of the Florentine center, one of the many artisan shops of the time was transformed into something new for Italy, but very popular in the United States: a bar where traditional American music was played, played by a BANJO BAND .

The banjo player has remained a symbol of the restaurant and we still see it today in the logo. Since then the restaurant has been renovated, enlarged compared to the original size and in 2007 it changed ownership, but inside it breathes the same atmosphere and energy of the first years: young people from all over the world united by the desire to have fun.

Live music, karaoke, good beer and great food are the key elements of the success of this great little piece of history.
