The Club ’98 is my “down the road pub” on via di monteverde, conveniently located close to tram 8’s stop “ravizza”. I liked it from the very first moment and I often return since it feels cosy and personal. On the inside it is spacious, and is proudly decorated in a vintage style, some items are a bit tacky (like old barbies) but they give an insight into the owners’ personality. They have truly put “a part of themselves” in the creation of this bar.
The inviting couches are my favorite place for some relaxed chatting amongst friends, especially when the numerous candles are lit up at night, adding a romantic touch. The good music in the background is never too loud for my taste.
In winter the bar has a warm atmosphere inside and summer makes way for the fresher vibes of a seating area outside, where groups gather, refreshing themselves with beverages. The Club ’98 is also dog friendly – still quite rare for Rome.
The opening times are convenient for late night drinking, although small snacking and aperitivo are also available. But it’s definitely the warm and friendly atmosphere which lures me back every time.
