A relaxed atmosphere, cool music, a hip young crowd, inventive cocktails and endless healthy free food. This is what to expect from Freni Frizioni, one of the best examples of an aperitivo' bar that Rome has to offer. Popular in the north of Italy, the aperitivo is Italy's answer to pre-dinner cocktails. Couscous, grilled vegetables, bruschetta and pastas are constantly replenished as the stylish young crowd chows down while sipping on their drinks. The bar itself has a laid back alternative vibe with mix-matched vintage furniture, stacks of club flyers and blasting beats. Once an auto body shop, hence the name: Freni (breaks) and Frizioni (clutch), the bar accommodates patrons both inside as well as outside on the large adjacent piazza. A favorite among Romans in the know, especially during the summer when the outside piazza is in full swing, this bar retains its allure well into the night, closing at 2a.
