Starting as a wine bar at the beginning of the twentieth century, Terrazza Bar Al Ponte has expanded to become one of the top spots on the city to enjoy a good vintage with a view. The terrace offers beautiful views over Ponte Pietra and has been reconstructed to look like the upper deck of a ship, making it seem like you’re enjoying your evening topside. The kitchen is open until 2am, making it the perfect spot for the post-theater crowd.

Located on its namesake, Rivamancina is a cosy bar that is not only close to the Teatro Romano but always serves up cocktails for a reasonable price, making it a great pre or post theatre spot. This place also offers great appetizers and an aperitivo buffet with plenty of options. If you’re lucky, you might even hear live music as you wait for the bartender to make your drink.

Although Il Campidoglio may seem like a quiet place to grab a glass of wine, it caters to all sort of crowds. Serving up Caribbean style cocktails accompanied by a small buffet of snacks. There is often live music playing on one side of the bar, but there is also a quiet side where you can enjoy a more low-key atmosphere. Try the gnocchetti with pistachio and almond pesto.
