Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Rome

Babel
Glitzy and chic, Babel is the latest addition to a rather incongruous music scene that snubbed the crowded streets of the city centre to party in the isolated depths of a car park and shopping mall in the heart of Villa Borghese.
Jackie O’
Once upon a time the covered walkway at Jackie O's entrance saw a catwalk of international celluloid stars from the 1960s and '70s shimmy through the gates and
Micca Club
Micca Club is testament to the cultural expansion of the former no man's land flanking Termini around Piazza Vittorio.
Akab
Akab is a sort of everyman nightspot which manages to tick most boxes for an entertaining night out.
La Cabala
This former 1970s boogie nights beat-box has reopened to Centro Storico revellers with rather startling success.
Circolo degli Artisti
The life and soul of the up-and-coming district of Pigneto, Circolo is arguably Rome's best underground destination.
La Maison
Probably the best nightclub to be found in Centro Storico - if you can find it, that is.
Brancaleone
Now the leading centro sociale in Rome, 'Branca', as it is known, has been providing alternative musical entertainment and social happenings since 1990.
Gilda
Gloriously out of date, this is one of Rome's historic nightclubs, with all the trimmings.
Town House
The words to define this small and pleasant club in Monti are pop, Victorian, dark, underground and maybe a bit surreal.
Goa Club
Lost nights in some trance-music bubble on the beaches of the Asian subcontinent? The name of this club says it all.
Shari Vari
Brand new Shari Vari is replacing Rome's rather successful Supperclub (so popular that the club is still referred to as the ex-Supperclub) from which it inherit
Rashomon Club
In the buzzy Ostiense club scene, the Rashomon club offers good electro-rock, new wave, techno and indie music, as well as live gigs with performers such as Dix
Joia
Located near the Giardini Pubblici and Piazza delle Repubblica stylish Joia is a popular choice for lunch and dinner.
Art Cafè
This spot sums up Italian nightclubs; ever so slightly off the mark but with pretensions of unrivalled urban cool.
Animal Social Club
One of the more chilled-out clubs in Rome, it's worth becoming a member of Animal.
