Restaurant / Rum Bar
Party Earth Review From the outside, La Pinta looks like any other student-centered bar in the neighborhood, brimming with patrons that crowd the entrance, fill the outdoor tables, and spill onto the sidewalk.

Party Earth Review Music lovers won’t want to miss Gregory’s Jazz Club, a popular and intimate venue where the live jazz has an unmistakable Italian flair.

Cocktail Bar / Wine Bar
Party Earth Review The aptly named Fluid is a trendy wine and cocktail bar where, as the name suggests, it’s all about going with the flow. The experience starts outside as a water-bubble light show, played on miniature TVs embedded in the bar’s façade, draws a small crowd of curious passersby.

Romans haven’t exactly gone off their rocker for the mixology craze – wine definitely still reigns supreme as the local drink of choice – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great Rome cocktail bars where you can sip something a little stronger or a little more unique.
One of the most popular cocktail bars in Rome is Fluid. Located in the Centro district, this trendy cocktail bar features a water-bubble light show outside played on miniature TVs embedded in the bar’s façade, while inside patrons find themselves hop-scotching across a glass-paned floor pressed against dark ink that moves this way and that as it’s displaced by the weight of the crowd. The cocktail list – one of the best in the city – features nine different types of mojitos, ten types of martinis, sixty types of vodka, and a plethora of perfectly blended fresh-fruit drinks like the popular Baileys Banana Colada.
Less trendy Rome cocktail bars are also easy to find as well. Gregory’s Jazz Club in Piazza di Spagna, for example, is a popular and intimate jazz venue/Italian restaurant that also offers a rather impressive selection of whiskey and whiskey cocktails, and La Pinta over in San Lorezno is a must for lover’s of rum (plus it was built to look like the hull of a ship, so you can drop a lot of pirate jokes that will actually be funny after a few sweet cocktails).
From pricey to cheap, Rome cocktail bars provide just enough diversity to keep city drinkers happy.
