The Best bars in Rome’s Ponte Milvio Neighbourhood

Nightlife in Rome is definitely not lacking. You’ve probably heard about Campo dei Fiori, Trastevere and Piazza Navona already.  But what about Northern Rome’s Ponte Milvio area, did you know about that one?

Chances are – if you’re not a Roman – you haven’t.

Unlike Rome’s historic center, Ponte Milvio is only frequented by locals, and it’s a major nightlife area in Rome.  

It’s full of restaurants and bars, and it’s great for happy hour! Definitely don’t miss out on the lovely walks on the centuries-old bridge known for its famous locks! Plus, the beautiful Chiesa della Gran Madre di Dio was just renovated.

If it’s a drink immersed in a Roman atmosphere you’re searching for, here’s the guide to my favorite Ponte Milvio bars!

Int. 2 or Interno 2 is one of the coolest bars in Ponte Milvio. Unlike most of the bars in this area, Int. 2 is located on the first floor of an apartment overlooking the piazza. The whole place is kept secret and the only way you’ll notice it is if you check out the intercom and read “Int.2” written on it. Go inside the building and head to the first floor where you’ll be immersed in a completely renovated apartment with dimmed lights and elegant areas to sip cocktails and wine till late. Background music, mixology cocktails, great service, a beautiful bar counter and a trendy vibe, this is Interno 2. There is also a smoking section. Just know that as most speakeasies, Int.2 is an association so you must pay for a yearly ARCI membership card which will cost you €10 and is inclusive of a cocktail/wine (it’s the same one for most speakeasies so you pay just once)!

Not exactly in Ponte Milvio but just a 5-minute drive away, you’ll find Profumo Spazio Sensoriale with its beautiful gardens.

Sit down in one of the candlelit outdoor tables, sip a cocktail and enjoy the magical atmosphere. During summer, enjoy their wonderful outdoor parties called “I Giardini d’Estate”, where you can drink and dance.  But Profumo Spazio Sensoriale is also known for its lovely aperitivos, picnic style!
