The hip and alternative Pigneto neighborhood feels worlds away from the tourism of Rome’s historic center. This working class neighborhood has experienced a revival over the past few decades, even inaugurating a stop along the new Metro C line, and is beloved by Romans for its authenticity, cheap restaurants and nightlife. With so many funky bars to choose from, you could spend all night hopping from one spot to the next without burning a hole in your pocket.
Yeah! is a musical oasis that is sure to appeal to creatives of all types. With its intriguing decor, up-cycled furniture, instruments on display and hundreds of LPs, its a great place to relax to the sound of cool tunes. Open from morning ’til late, Yeah! doubles as an inspiring co-working space, replete with natural light and ample seating. In the evenings, be sure to try the signature zenzerino, a gingery adaptation of a mojito.
This unique little spot is a treat for the senses. Short for Cocktails & Social, Co.So. features typewritten menus delivered to your table in Manila envelopes, bubble wrap coasters, an all-you-can-eat popcorn machine and peanut M&Ms to snack on while you sip on your bespoke cocktails. Each drink is carefully crafted and served in a unique glass, and this may be the only place where you can sample a carbonara sour: the secret ingredient is guanciale-washed (fat-infused) vodka which adds a savory flavor to the citrus classic.
