Quirinetta Caffè Concerto – The depths of a dungeon

Prince Mattia built a theater in the basement of Palazzo Sciarra in 1887 to make up for the lack of entertainment places in the area. The Teatro Quirino had been fulfilling this role until it closed in 2002. Despite its troubled history, the spot was reopened in 2011 and its interior plan is being reorganized since then. One of my favorite new rooms added to the basement’s plan is a concert hall called Quirinetta Caffè Concerto, which is spacious and has an old-fashioned style.

The venue hosts many artists that fit my musical tastes, such as Fink, Sandro Joyeaux, The Tallest Man on Earth… On the weekends, after these gigs, the vibes change completely, as there are always DJ sets for the rest of the night. I love cross-genre places! As one walks through the structure of the basement’s halls, one has the sensation of having entered a dungeon.

It’s close to Piazza Venezia so it’s easy to arrive from different parts of Rome.
