Nice expensive cocktails

nice cocktails but pretty pricey. They don't have a seating area outside, so for a tourist like me i am missing the buzz of the lovely piazza outside.

Stylish upscale cocktail bar serving wide range of own and classic cocktails, beers, wine and good quality aperitivo (bar food served to customers between 7pm and 10pm). Good location near the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon, making this an excellent spot for a drink and aperitivo (breads, pizza, sushi) after a days site seeing and before an evening meal. Very relaxing... More

I didn't visit it for 2-3 years and it was a... More

Totally chill vibe inside, really great service. Though the wine wasn't optimal and neither was the food, it was still a really great place to sit, have a drink and chat. Loved the atmosphere, not too loud, but not a tame environment either. Would highly recommend this place, and would go again if given the opportunity!

We accidentally found Salotto 42 between Piazza Navona and Via del Corso. They have excellent drinks, nice music, beautiful atmosphere and lighting. It is located in a square with ancient columns that makes the place unique.

Staying in Colonna

Neighbourhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very centre of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping centre, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
