568 Public House Garbatella
Advertising themselves as little more than beer, music and more in the heart of Garbatella, 568 Public House is a chic establishment catering to the part of the public that emerges after dark. Tastefully decorated, with numerous kinds of beer on their menu, this bar is a perfect spot for a quiet, relaxing drink with friends. It’s slightly removed from the busy student nightlife in areas such as Via Libretta, and it’s closer to the restaurants of central Garbatella.
Via delle Sette Chiese 56, Rome, Italy, +39 333 537 4223
A relaxed affair situated in the middle of Garbatella, Otium Club has a wine list that goes on for pages upon pages, as well as the usual selection of beer, and a varied liquor options. The homely interior, relaxing ambiance and central location makes Otium ideal for a glass of wine after a long day of walking, as well as for those looking to start the evening in a laid back manner. Even with seating both outside and inside, this place is bound to be packed on Saturdays – don’t be late.
Via Roberto de Bobili 3b, Rome, Italy, +39 339 403 0804
Ristoro degli Angeli
Removed from the crowded streets of central Rome, in front of the iconic Palladium Theater, lies one of Garbatella’s more refined dining and drinking experiences. Mentioned in several Roman food guides, and well loved by Romans and foreigners, Ristoro degli Angeli, with its inventive decor, is in possession of a sophisticated wine list. Perhaps more famed for its food, the general atmosphere of the place is worth drinking in, especially as the locals descend upon it a little later in the evening.
