Live music every night is something I’ve personally only seen in some bars in New York, and to be honest I didn’t expect to find something similar in Rome. But, like so often, I was proven wrong. Even though there are a few days every now and then where there is nothing, at Le Mura you’ll normally always get all your live-music needs satisfied.
The name, “le mura”, which simply means “the walls”, refers to the venue’s position right next to a portion of the Aurelian Walls, walls built by the Romans about 1,700 years ago and in a remarkably good shape. Despite that awesome setting it is very central, right in San Lorenzo, the student’s quarter and therefore close to Termini, too.
One of the features of Le Mura I like most is the diversity of different music genres, apart from the open mic/jam session-Wednesdays, you’ll get to hear rock, techno, jazz, Italian songwriters up to eccentric experimental projects, and the standards are high.
Let’s just say that pretty much every music lover is more than likely to get his money’s worth here. Speaking about money, the entrance fee works like most places in Italy, that is on a yearly basis, so you just pay €5 for your “membership” once a year, which is more than fair in my opinion.
Furthermore, if you don’t feel like dancing or dangling in front of the stage there are loads of cosy couches and even a table football for the most fierce amongst you.
