L'Asino che Vola Rome – Dreaming place for music lovers

"L'Asino che Vola" Rome is the kind of bar that's like a community: you need someone to properly introduce you first. Good thing I'm here for you!

I love places without an illuminated sign at the front door; they are like communities - you would never enter without somebody introducing you first. That’s what happened to me at L’Asino Che Vola!

I was introduce by a friend of Piero, one of the owners, so just within a minute I had become part of the family. My first time there I was impressed with how the club was structured as a whole, but it was the big cave, where the music stage is, that became my favourite part. L’Asino che Vola has the soul of a jazz club, but it's is something more: it’s modern, and the passion of its music crosses different genres.

The brothers La Fontana put a lot of love in this place. It's their home, their life and you can feel it from the first meeting. There are concerts every night there - just songwriters, no cover bands or similar, and this love for music is shared by the entire staff, some of whom have become accomplished Italian musicians.

Last but not least, you will find interesting Calabrian cooking, I always get a selection of cheese and salumi with a bottle of wine shared with my friends, but they serve also huge quantity of pasta as Calabrian Maccheroni with meat ragù and caciocavallo from Sila. The brothers La Fontana love wine and food. More so than music? Hmm… you’ll have to decide that!

Int. 2 – 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...
