Party Earth Testaccio Review

The Scene

A bit isolated from the rest of Rome, Testaccio is the city's club district and home to more than a dozen nightspots heavily frequented by a hip local clientele.

A bit isolated from the rest of Rome, Testaccio is the city’s club district and home to more than a dozen nightspots heavily frequented by a hip local clientele. Built into the side of a hill, the circular area features a road around its perimeter that leads patrons from one club to the next.

Some of the highlights include Akab (Via di Monte Testaccio, 69) or Joia (Via Galvani, 20) for dancing, Villaggio Globale (Via di Monte Testaccio, 22) for live music, and On the Rox (Via Galvani, 54) for a lively bar setting.

Entertainment varies by venue, but revelers can expect high-energy crowds packing the dance floors no matter where they go.

Most venues have both indoor and outdoor seating, some serve food, and all usually charge a cover and may entail some waiting. Those who arrive in Testaccio early may want to grab a few moderately-priced drinks at Il Buongustaio (Via Campitelli, 1) before entering the clubs.

The district is known to attract a dressier mainstream crowd, but the live music venues like Conte Staccio and Villaggio Globale – which presents well-known artists and DJs in outdoor tents – are far more alternative and punk.

Although many of the clubs close in July and August – or move operations to the river for the summer months – a few like Coyote, On the Rox, and Conte Staccio do stay open, keeping the heart of Testaccio pumping no matter what time of year.

Tip from Adriana:

It’s best to pick a place by midnight and plan on staying for a while. Lines can get long and you don’t want to have to wait.

  • Crowd

    Hip and happening Italian partygoers, early 20s to mid-30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Music varies from club to club, but often includes drum and bass, techno, and house.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Several of the venues serve sandwiches or larger meals. A few kebab and panini stands also stay open as late as the clubs. The metro shuts down right when Testaccio gets going, so plan on taking a taxi home.

  • Prices

    Cover charges average €7–€15. Beer €3.50–€6, wine €4–€6, cocktails €7–€12.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Club attire.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Whenever the mood hits to dance to house, hip-hop, or Top 40 on a large-scale dance floor. Fridays and Saturdays are densely crowded during the spring and fall.

  • Close By

    A ten-minute walk past Via Ostiense to Via Libetta leads to a smaller club area that includes Goa (Via Giuseppe Libetta, 13) and the Linux Club (Via Giuseppe Libetta, 15c).

Getting local

Testacchio is a great place to go if you want a late night out, which is why this scene appeals to the younger 18-25 year old crowd. There are several bars and clubs where you can dance from venue to venue. Its easy to find live music of all genres here, offering a good night out for anybody that stops by....unless you're over the 25 year mark of course ;)
We don't even have to try, Its always a good time!

Described in one word, Testaccio is a blast. A line of clubs resembling tents light up this vibrant nightspot in Rome. Testaccio is young and dirty, but a great time. It’s the kind of place where one dances on tables and jumps into the crowd, but creates a night to remember. Drinks are inexpensive, and locals rather than tourists frequent most clubs here so bouncers are likely to greet you in Italian. The food in the area is fantastic too. Pizzeria da Remo is one of the best renowned for its Roman-style pizzas. The best club is undoubtedly Coyote, that lies on a hill and has both an indoor tent space as well as an outdoor area where one can mingle and chat. The music is a string of contemporary house mash-ups, and the dance floor is invariably packed. Great drinks, fun music, lots of club and food options and young Italians- Testaccio is a sure shot win for a fun night out on the town.
Is beautiful

Testaccio is party part in Roma, and my prefered place for a crazy night. There are much nice aperitivo place here in Testaccio, is beautiful to go for aperitivo at Ponte Testaccio and then eat dinner at one of the restaurant here, is very good food and not so expensive for eating. After is going to a disco, Akab is very beautiful and so is Hulalà and Fake. After the disco there is nice food place on Ponte Testaccio for eating and looking at the Tevere. Is a very beautiful night life in Testaccio and very Roman.
