    Rive Gauche 2 - Bar | Pub in Rome.

    Party Earth Review A San Lorenzo fixture for over twenty years, Rive Gauche 2 has been around long enough to remember the true communist days of the neighborhood that have now been replaced by a less outspoken political climate. Nonetheless, the patrons who frequent this popular bar still lean to the left and include creative types like actors ... more

    Druid's Rock - Irish Pub | Sports Bar in Rome.

    Party Earth Review One of the most popular Irish bars in town, Druid’s Rock packs in sports-loving patrons attracted by the foosball and pool tables available in the upstairs game room, the frequent noisy bar games, and the dozen or so big-screen TVs where they can catch their favorite European sports.

    Party Earth Review The first “bookbar” to open in Rome, the ivy-covered Salotto 42 is a trendy, upscale lounge where politicians and jet-setters alike gather to talk literature, break out a book, listen to readings, or peruse the collection of arty international magazines.

  • Italian Restaurant / Wine Bar

    Ferrazza Wine Bar - Italian Restaurant | Wine Bar in Rome.

    Party Earth Review Thanks to its slightly higher prices and understated décor more typical of Centro than the university district, Ferrazza Wine Bar is often singled out as the anti-San Lorenzo bar. Clean and modern, the décor consists mostly of racks of bottles separated by region and grape, an appropriate look for an enoteca that clearly ... more

Nightlife in Rome is invariably a slow bleed. Once denizens finish indulging in aperitivo and those who haven’t filled up on finger-foods have relaxed over a slow-paced dinner, the scene shifts outside to the streets and piazzas as the ever-fashionable partiers wander from bar to bar to indulge in their favorite pastime – animated conversation with friends against a picturesque backdrop of ancient walls and fountains.

And while the piazza hanging culture satisfies the party appetite for much of the population, those looking for a bit more action can take refuge in the small but energetic expanse of bars and clubs in Rome, which is centered on a few venues scattered around the city, as well as in a section of Testaccio that is fully dedicated to late-night clubs. On one winding street, Testaccio features lounges, live music venues, and bars that provide differing styles and sounds, from mainstream to edgy and from posh to rowdy.

Although some of the clubs close their doors during the summer, many others move operations to the banks of the Tiber River, where makeshift bars and clubs pop up to give partygoers a reprieve from the inner-city heat and yet another reason to dance the night away under the stars.
