Centro, Rome –
With its mahogany-paneled, high-ceilinged interior and low-key daytime crowd, Scholar’s Lounge is a relaxing Irish pub with a laid-back atmosphere that becomes exuberantly busy by nightfall.
Consisting of a single square room reminiscent of a chapel, the bar does in fact feature wood taken from a church in Ireland, which helps give the place its decidedly Irish flavor.
Etchings of famous Irish scholars and poets line the walls as lanterns and Irish flags dangle from above to complete the look, while the English-speaking staff provides some of the friendliest service in Rome.
With an outgoing clientele of expats, students, co-workers, and travelers, Scholar’s Lounge is swinging every night and the festive atmosphere makes it easy to meet new people, share a pint with old friends, and even get a bit rowdy now and then.
English speakers from around the world, upbeat and cheerful, early 20s to late 30s.
Rock, pop, and funk. Karaoke on Sundays and Tuesdays. Live Irish music/bagpipes once a week in summer, more often in winter. Check the website for information about the weekly pub quiz. TVs showing all major sports.
