Housed in a beautiful historic palazzo right off Via del Corso, Trinity College is a popular Irish pub where locals, expats, and international travelers mingle in front of the book-lined walls or relax in the upstairs reading room.

Visitors shouldn’t expect a crowd of bespectacled bookworms, though – the theme is just a front for what the owners call a “disco pub” where the music is loud and the drafts flow freely.

Seasoned DJs spin a variety of music from a corner of the room, while chatty patrons gather at the oak bar to indulge in whatever’s on tap, or climb the spiral staircase to view the action from above and ponder the massive antique chandelier.

In warm weather, the crowds head out to the shaded patio to enjoy their brews under the stars. Later in the night, however, the DJ turns up the volume to get the masses moving, and Trinity College transforms into a hot and sweaty disco until closing time.

Great spot for touristy day drinking
Chris M. Aug 3, 2012
If you've spent the day walking around Rome and have been to the Pantheon and Spanish Steps and find yourself walking past the shops of Via del Corso, Trinity College is a welcome sight. The Guiness is cold and poured nicely and the staff is very nice. Many Italian bars were confusing in that you ordered one place from one person then picked up somewhere else. Trinity College is more of an Irish pub and once inside you could be in an Irish pub anywhere in the world. There are lots of little nooks and corners for conversation and a patio. I ended up here a couple times in my visit, one time because the pizza place we wanted to go to for a late lunch didn't open until dinner time (not uncommon in Rome) so we had a few drinks until we were the early birds at the restaurant. At night the atmosphere is much different with loud dance music and a packed house, but the friendly, international vibe remains.
