The name Camerata was taken from Florentine Camerata, a group of artists, musicians, intellectuals in Renaissance Florence, Italy. The term camerata means literally room or chamber where gatherings are held. Owner Paul Petronella was inspired by this term because of his Italian heritage and desire to create an unpretentious meeting place where guests can enjoy delicious beverages and thoughtful bar food. Camerata also strives to be a place of learning, be it wine, literature or history. Camerata is open daily from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. and sells bottles at retail.
The food menu consists of fine salumi, artisanal cheeses and thoughtful bar food options. If looking for a full meal, dinner at Paulie’s is recommended, then follow with drinks next door at Camerata.
