I got there in Sunday after I tried 2 other places that broadcast the games, and this was by far the best. Many screens, each of them with a different game. Just sat with a beer and watched 4 games at a time

It was a nice atmosphere inside and we thought it'd be a nice change from the usual Italian cuisine, but the food we ate was blatantly frozen food and made us feel nauseous for hours afterwards. Some items on the menu were specified as using...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

Situated in the very heart of beautiful Rome beside the impressive Piazza Venezia, Scholars Lounge can boast to be the most famous bar not only in Rome but in Italy itself. Opened back in September 2005 the establishment has become a highlight in the entertainment of the Eternal City. The Largest of Rome’s Irish bars, Scholars is now also Italy’s most successful. This is due to numerous factors including it’s warm welcoming Irish staff, superb location, delious food (served seven days a week till midnight), weekly gigs (also some of which are flown over from Ireland – The Wolfe Tones played in September 2015 and The Fureys are due to play in 2017 just to mention but a few), karaoke sessions 3 times a week, pub quizzes and sporting events which are shown live on the bars 24 screens with surround sound. This is a story of an extremely impressive, unique and highly successful Irish pub that keeps improving and keeps giving locals and visitors to Rome a genuine Irish pub experience.
