San Lorenzo, Rome –
A Mexican bar and restaurant outfitted with the expected collection of flags, sombreros, and rugs, the colorful Cocorico and its friendly staff attract an outgoing clientele of local students and young professionals.
Although the ceiling painted with a night sky and the little balconies and mock windows that protrude from the walls – complete with cowboy boots resting there cross-legged – are charming touches, the flickering lanterns that provide the sole source of light are the real secret behind the warm ambiance.
Boisterous patrons indulge in exotic cocktails and conversation around the bar or enjoy a Mexican meal on the outdoor patio, while couples in need of a private rendezvous cozy up in the hollowed-out niches in the room to the right of the entrance.
As if that’s not enough, Cocorico has also transformed part of their space into a disco where the young and energetic patrons can enjoy dancing, live music, and karaoke every night of the week.
Chatty students and alternative types, early 20s to mid-30s.
Blues, rock, and salsa. DJs or live solo musicians perform in the dance area September through June, with karaoke sessions after the performance.
Mexican cuisine, hamburgers, and pizza. Free aperitivo buffet with drink, 7–9pm.
Mexican entrées €7–€13.50, burgers €6, pizza €4–€7. Beer €3–€5, wine €4/glass or €13+/bottle, cocktails €5+.
Crowded every night year round.
