    • Piazza Navona 28

    Tre Scalini
  2. Jonathan’s Angels

    Perhaps Rome’s most unique and kitsch nightspot, which should be seen to be believed. Run by a former circus acrobat, it is eccentrically decorated, with a piano bar, tables out on the narrow alley strung with fairy lights, and the occasional impromptu floor show.

    • Via della Fossa 16

  3. Abbey Theatre Irish Pub

    Comfortable, cosy Guinness pub, pleasantly removed from the hubbub of the nightlife core that has recently sprouted down the road. Basic snacks are also served and there’s an Internet terminal.

    Abbey Theatre Irish Pub
  4. Cul de Sac

    An alternative, chic hangout in the shade of the legendary fig tree in a tiny square, where you can sit inside or out and enjoy a morning cappuccino or a very late liqueur.

    • Piazza del Fico

  9. La Botticella

    Small, always crowded birreria (beerhouse) with some tables outside, in the heart of the area’s nightlife action. Devil’s Kiss and Castlemaine XXXX beer are on tap.
