“Best bartender I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Bar was busy, but great people watching. Ultra-chic, a tv screen near the bar showed documentaries from the 60s on the mating habits of seahorses and squid. Weird, but cool. Drinks are really spendy (€10 each) but the bartenders take their jobs seriously and score big points. I ordered a round of Chartreuse on the rocks, a pretty strange drink to begin with, but the bartender asked if I would like to try something a little different. He then proceeded to make one of the most interesting drinks I've ever tasted (he called it "The Last Word"). Would definitely come back here.

“Cool cat in the midle of Rome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

Salotto 42 is a cocktail bar with Romes wonderful visual distint quality as frame. I allways end my stays in Rome with an aperitivo or an all nighter here. Frida and her friendly staff make wonderful martinis and play sweet club music. A must.

“Nice hip, good drinks and good music.........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

Very good drinks in a cool modern atmosphere in front of the most striking columns in Rome, steps away from the Panteon.
