Nightlife in Rome
So, you’re planning a great night out in Rome, but where should you go? After all, this is a metropolis unlike anything, so we’ll be trying to help you cut it down a little. When it comes to nightlife in Rome, the catchphrase is “night,” and anyone expecting a traditional early jump and the early end is in for a nasty shock. Because most Romans don’t eat supper until after 9 p.m., gatherings here don’t start until after midnight. Coming back home at 6 a.m. is standard procedure. Amid all these new and different routines, here are 5 of the best things that you can do there at night:
What exactly is it? Marmo (translated as ‘marble’) is a bustling nightclub in the busy, alternative San Lorenzo neighborhood, situated in an erstwhile marble factory near to Verano cemetery. From 6.30 p.m. until 2 a.m., the bar is open. Why should you go? Rather than the regular DJ sets seen elsewhere, live music is the sole option here. And their drinks, created and poured by some of the city’s greatest bartenders, are legendary. To skip the line, sign up for a membership card.
Vinile is a new child on the block, located in the Ostiense area, which has long been home to various entertainment establishments. In a way, yes. The old 45 Giri nightclub used to be located here, hence the location is well-known among Romans. The venue, which opened in late 2014, is accessible from Tuesday through Sunday from aperitivo time until the early hours of the morning. There are bands playing by domestic and international musicians ranging from folklore, punk, sway, blues, big band symphony, and jazz throughout the aperitivo period and until around 11:00 p.m. The aperitivo is fairly large and served as an all-you-can-eat buffet. With its lofty ceilings and floor-to-ceiling bar showcase, you could believe you’ve entered a New York nightclub. After the live music, the evening comes to a conclusion with a DJ performance.
Drink Kong is a lot more than a bar. It’s more than just a place. Rome may not have the same stylish or global image as London, Tokyo, or New York, but it is evolving. Drink Kong, the creation of cocktail maestro Patrick Pistolesi, offers a style and idea to the Eternal City that has never been seen before. Mixology, cuisine, entertainment, visual art, and enjoyment all come together in one area. Pistolesi is known in Rome as the man who reinvented mixology, and he has decided to bring this new endeavor to life with his skilled bar team.

You’ll be mixing it up with Rome’s young and gorgeous population, and it’ll seem like you’ve stepped into the Prohibition period. Their specialty is mezcal-based drinks, and it would be impolite not to try one!
Rome has been yearning for a high-end bar like The Court. It has it all: an elevated patio floor in a historic palace (the five-star Palazzo Manfredi), trendy furniture and lighting created by Italo-German architect Giorgia Dennerlei, professional bartenders, and a Michelin-starred chef curating the nibbles. Oh, and don’t forget about the view. To be fair, the vista could simply make you forget about everything else. As you gather your breath, the Colosseum unfolds in all its splendor right before your eyes.
