The best bars near Piazza Navona in Rome

I don’t want to say love at first sight, but you know that feeling you get when you step into a place and instantly fall in love? That’s  how I felt with Etabli wine and cocktail bar!

rome top attractionsA stone’s throw away from Rome’s Chiostro del Bramante and Piazza Navona, you’ll find this super cute shabby-chic bar! It’s also a restaurant (and the food looks amazing, especially those cold-cuts and cheese platters). But since I haven’t tried the food at Etablì yet, let me tell  you what I do know about!

Which is of course, the BAR!

Oh, and there’s a super cool L-shaped bar where bartenders are mixing and shaking cocktails that definitely sets the tone!

Really good. I think it’s THE perfect place for an after-dinner drink with your friends in the center of Rome (or a birthday celebration too)! Which is exactly how I came to know about Etabli, it was my friend Vincy’s birthday (she has an eye for spotting cool places)!

Okay, I have to say that it was easier to just say “love at first sight” after all!
