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 Santa Chiara church 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!

Charlie Vini & Cucina

Charlie is my go-to place for a delicious aperitivo in Ponte Milvio. They make the BEST cold cuts and cheese boards ever and they also have a nice wine selection! If you don’t believe me, wait until you taste the truffled burrata! There’s both and indoor and outdoor area, but I always prefer the outdoor area. The service is friendly and they know how to make a good Moscow Mule!

Int. 2

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)!
