After a day spent waiting in a queue for visiting a museum, or walking along kilometres to get the most you can of this wonderful city, you only would like to relax yourself, sipping a cocktail, or a glass of wine, with some snacks. No problem!
During the last few years, the panorama of the clubs offering good aperitifs has become very wide, as there are proposals by young people who invested on a mix of tradition and innovation, getting great results. Which is one of the food symbols of the city of Rome? The "maritozzo" - ancient origin - is usually celebrated on the Maritozzo day, on the first Saturday of December. Add to this peculiar tradition one of the most appreciated places of Rome, Trastevere district: well, success is guaranteed.

A small restaurant with a post-industrial style, the Santo, in Trastevere, is always crowded at aperitif time.

The restaurant - which opened a few years ago as a cocktail bar - has actually enlarged the kitchen and properly equipped it to accompany its alcoholic creations by refined dishes. The Amatriciana lovers will probably be incredulous, but if you have dinner at Santo, you can't miss the Amatriciana with the addition of octopus. A truly one-of-a-kind dish! Bar del Fico is one of the trendiest clubs in Rome. While tasting your aperitif, you can watch live performances of music and cabaret, on a small stage set up like a circus, in a wonderful location, a few steps from Piazza Navona.
From the plane to the tram, from the enchanted forest to the ice room, proposals of original clubs really never miss in Rome. In addition to the most extravagant ones, then, you will appreciate the clubs born from the recovery of abandoned places, like a customs house, or a workshop, or a chocolate factory. If you are not too shy or susceptible, however, the first stop in the extravagant Rome should be the historical restaurant Cencio La Parolaccia. The atmosphere is absolutely normal Roman people, but astonishing for the tourists, Cencio La Parolaccia is considered an institution. The idea was born in 1941, when a couple decided to open a restaurant offering the traditional Roman food, but adding a very peculiar entertainment.
