As the sun begins to set, it is time for an aperitivo. The most fashionable spot is the rooftop terrace at the Hotel Raya. To start the evening off, try the loosely Moroccan-themed Bar Banacalii, on the wooden veranda overlooking the port, at the Hotel Lisca Bianca: The best tables are upstairs on the elegant terrace. The rich, under-25 set flocks with religious devotion to a "sushi bar" above the port called The Bridge for aperitivo. A little farther afield, Da Nunzio at Zimmari is a good spot for a sun-downer overlooking the beach. Equally pleasant, but with much less flash, there are a few more "normal" Italian bars (where you can get an iced coffee or a beer, simple cocktails or a smoothie) on the port opposite the jetty. Panarea's only nightclub is at the Hotel Raya, where the key word is posh.
