Int. 2 Rome – My favourite hidden speakeasy

"Int. 2" in Rome is a 'secret' concept bar -- not so easy to find here! It has real 1920s speakeasy vibes and they make a mean Pornstar Martini...

Moving to Rome from London, one of the things I really missed was ‘concept bars’ – Rome is full of great traditional wine bars, but sometimes you hanker for something a little more unique. Luckily, I came across Int. 2, a ‘secret’ speakeasy located in an apartment building in Ponte Milvio, which has become my go-to spot when I want something different.

If you didn’t know it was there, you would miss it completely – unless you happened to catch a glimpse of the fairy lights adorning the window whilst standing in the piazza outside. The best thing about it is that, to the untrained eye, Int. 2 looks like a normal home – but after entering the building, going up to the first floor and knocking on the bar’s door, you get to discover how fabulous it is!

You’ll be welcomed into a cosily lit living room – think vintage sofas, huge mirrors and velvet lampshades. Lit up by candles and fairy lights, it has real 1920s speakeasy vibes and is a sumptuous place to spend a few hours. The staff are all super friendly and there’s a great cocktail list, but they’ll also make anything you want if you ask for it; I had a Pornstar Martini, which are (unfortunately) non-existent in Italy, and they whipped up a pretty good one! A little pricey at €10 a cocktail, but well worth it for the experience and to try a really ‘local’ cocktail bar in Rome.
