Festive Bar and the Best Granite in Town

Sicily is notorious for its sweltering heat, and walking around the charming village of Taormina can really work up a thirst. There are plenty of bars in the area, but ask the locals and they'll all point you to Bam. And why is that?

Since 1996, Bam Bar has been treating the sweet teeth of locals and tourists alike. While they offer full bar service, including beer, wine, hard liquor, juice and water, their specialty is Granite or Granita Siciliana - Sicily's original version of Italian Ice.

A concise menu displays current selections of up to two dozen reasonable priced granita flavors, many of which are available on a seasonal basis. The bar is usually packed and service can be slow, but it's worth the wait.
