Time Out says

Set just outside a heavily-trafficked street, this low-key Cannaregio pub offers cheap cicchetti and more than 20 beers on tap.

God bless the Holy Drinker (as the name translates) for its 20-plus beers on tap, invitingly divey atmosphere, and cicchetti starting at €1 apiece, all on road less traveled in Cannaregio. There’s no muss or fuss here, just cheap eats, fairly priced beer and mixed drinks in a typical pub setting. The selection of draft beers rotates regularly, and the fridge is stocked with just about every other beer you can imagine. On a hot summer day, this is a great place to chill out. 

Time Out tip: Look for the selection of Trappist beers on draught—brewed by monks in one of only 11 monasteries in the world.

La Colombina: For creative cuisine in a rustic-casual setting
L'Isola Di Pinocchio: For handcrafted marionettes—an only in Venice gift if there ever was one
Ca’Pesaro: For cutting-edge modern art in a noble palace
