San Lorenzo, Rome –
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.
Once guests finally shimmy their way past the chaos, however, they’ll find themselves in a kitschy nautical-themed restaurant and rum bar with an eclectic clientele sets the place apart from the area’s typical underground style.
Everyone from students, locals, and professors seems to gather in the three small bar areas divided by wooden poles and knotted ropes, mixing and mingling among the compasses and treasure maps that cover every surface.
Arranged to look like the hull of a ship, the wood-paneled room sports boating paraphernalia, fishing nets, and lanterns swinging low under the arched ceiling.
The odd thing is that there is no fish to be found here – instead, the pride of La Pinta’s menu is Martin and Gordon’s Belgian draft beer, not to mention the extensive selection of more than thirty rums.
The congenial atmosphere and the fantastic drinks menu practically guarantee a good time at La Pinta, so clients should just pull up a lifeboat and stay awhile – but they shouldn’t be surprised if they lose their sea legs.
Diverse crowd of students, locals, regulars, and travelers, 20s and up.
Loud pop music on most nights.
Appetizers, fresh salads, and mouth-watering chocolate desserts. Aperitivo buffet daily 7–9pm.
Daily buffet €7 with a drink purchase. Cheese and meat plates €3–€8, salads €4.50, sandwiches €3.50–€5, desserts €4. Beer €3.50–€5.50, wine €4+/glass or €13+/bottle, cocktails €7, rum drinks €5–€12.
Weekends are definitely the most crowded, so claustrophobic types will want to go during the week instead.
