A musical evening, a good craft beer or a movie in the original language? Read the mini-guide on what to do in Turin in the evening and choose what’s right for you!
In the past, we have already suggested which museums to visit in the city or which are best piole – typical family-run informal eateries that serve traditional Piedmont food – for a hearty meal. Today, we would like to recommend what to do in Turin in the evening to enjoy the charm of the Piedmont capital also by night with friends, including artisan breweries and live artist and musical performances.
The Quartiere San Salvario: history, greenery and nightlife
The San Salvario district is a historic area and among the greenest in the city because it includes the famous Valentino Park, the former summer residence of the Savoy family, which directly overlooks the Po River.
In San Salvario, the best part is getting lost: following the swarm of young people going from pub to club, enjoying the evening in good company with some good food and live music. It won’t let you down!
Turin – a great craft beer city
Turin proudly claims to be a pioneer in making craft beers widely popular. Breweries are definitely one of the best places to spend the evening in the city, thanks to the excellent quality of the beer served and the always informal, cheerful and convivial atmosphere. Here are four that deserve a special mention:
The strong point of OroBirra, an “independent pub” in Turin, is the special pairings between the seasonal dishes prepared and the more than 120 craft beers from Italy and around the world. Within walking distance of the city center and the Mole Antonelliana, OroBirra is also an ideal choice for those seeking vegetarian, vegan or homemade desserts.

Il Birrificio Torino
Entering Birrificio Torino (the “Turin Brewery”) is like stepping back in time to an early 20th-century store where excellent craft beer without preservatives is brewed and served – the production facilities, however, are state-of-the-art and on open display! With ales, red beers, and dark beers, there is something for every palate.

Birrificio San Paolo
One of the most beloved and consumed beverages in history, beer, and wood, a resource that humans have always used to build houses and means of transportation. The Birrificio San Paolo combines these elements and conveys its products through the essences of wood, which give their names to the different beers brewed only with local malts and hops.

Baladin, the “open-source” beer
A very clear idea inspired the Open Baladin project, a well-known label of Italy’s first craft beer that has conquered the world from the Langhe region: to spread the culture of an “open-source” beer. The “Open”, in fact, is the first Italian beer whose recipe has been spread on the web, available to all: sharing, first and foremost!
