Party Earth Freni e Frizioni Review

The Scene

Formerly an auto-body shop, Freni e Frizioni (Brakes and Clutch) is now a stylish bar that people deliberately seek out for its diverse patrons and the electrifying, interactive atmosphere they create.

Formerly an auto-body shop, Freni e Frizioni (Brakes and Clutch) is now a stylish bar that people deliberately seek out for its diverse patrons and the electrifying, interactive atmosphere they create.

Once they walk through the wide garage doors, fashion-conscious Italians dressed to impress and artsy underground types have plenty of time to mingle as they wait for their drinks at the long bar in the back.

The interior space itself is divided into two distinct areas, but most of the action takes place in the front room, which still sports the original tar pavement of the body shop, as well as sleek black couches upholstered in tire tread.

Drinks finally in hand, though, patrons tend to head back out to the small piazza that Freni e Frizioni occupies – and where most of the socializing takes place – spreading themselves out on the few outdoor seats, nearby stairs, or low walls that surround the square.

Whether alternative musicians, bohemians, or trendy Italians, the patrons are laid back and outgoing, making Freni e Frizioni an excellent place to meet new people or gather with friends.

Tip from Jonah:

Since the bar is in a residential area, there’s a limit to how loud the music can be played outside. The owners counter that issue by occasionally encouraging musicians to bring their own guitars and play for the crowd.

Freni e Frizioni User Reviews

Average rating:
You can meet there so different people. And that's the best thing about this place.
Alina L. Mar 26, 2013
One of the most popular places in Trastevere, usually full of young people of different subcultures. Advantages for girls: if you want to flirt with cute and freindly barmen and have a good drink, that's a good place. Advantages for guys: if you want to hang out and find some good company of girls having a nice drink together, it's also a good place. The decor is a little bit oldish, as for me. Needs some modernization. But still the atmosphere is very live and friendly and that is the thing that makes you visit that place again.
