Aperitivo and cocktails in Rome 2018, five new bars

Aperitivo and cocktails in Rome 2018, five new bars to try. With the arrival of the new year we have tried and tested five recently opened bars – most of them located in the centre – which we can add to our long-standing list of aperitivo and cocktail bars.

Stilelibero – Prati 

A fantastic bar, with a kitchen run by television star Max Mariola, and an underground piano bar where you can listen to live music and enjoy delicious cocktails. There are many different types, such as the Tiki (10 euros), the exotic Antigua – made with mescal, tequila, agave with pink peppercorns and grapefruit – bitters, and spicy cocktail recipes drinks (all priced at 9 euros). Don’t miss the flavoursome spirits, which include rum, grappa and vermouth.

Stilelibero, via Fabio Massimo 68. Tel 023219657  Facebook

Apollinare – Piazza Navona

This new wine and cocktail bar is run by Maurizio Musu and Luca Boccoli. It’s a pleasing place to while away the hours over a glass of wine, champagne, or maybe a cocktail. You can even take your drink outside onto the terrace. Have a look at the bar’s events, as there is often live music and dj sets.

Apollinare, piazza di Sant’Apollinare 49 Tel  066897021 Facebook

Pantaleo – Piazza Navona

Between piazza Navona and Camp de’ Fiori you’ll find a bar serving the ultimate Martini. Here you can of course drink the classic recipe, but you can also try many others, such as Spray, made with alcoholic dyes and pepper, cardamon and chives. Or there’s the Japan, with wasabi, sake, and soy sauce. If you fancy something different you can also savour a Bloody Mary, Boulevardier, Margarita, Martinez and many others.

Pantaleo, piazza San Pantaleo 4. Tel. 06 93572514 Facebook

Mercerie – Torre Argentina

This original street food project, initiated by Igles Corelli, also houses a cocktail bar. We highly recommend the cocktail featured in the picture above, the Not Today is made with gin, ratafia di ciliegie, dry vermouth, liquid sugar, orange sugar, clove bitters, cherry and desiccated rose.

A fabulous design space which was opened last December in via dei Cappellari, this bar run by the people behind Cohouse, includes a spacious bar in the ‘Pink Room‘. Alongside your cocktail you can also tuck into small plates made by chef Mirko Pappalardo.
