Tam Tam Club

Tam Tam Club is located in Rome, in the San Giovanni area. It is a restaurant and cocktail bar entirely set in the jungle. It is a sort of indoor tiki bar. The first peculiarity is found at the entrance: to access the main room, you have to go through a slide at the entrance of the upper floor. In a few seconds, you find yourself immersed in a welcoming, well-kept, and multi-ethnic style restaurant. The setting is obviously tropical, with plants and flowers everywhere. At Tam Tam Club, you can have Italian dishes, meat, pizza, hamburgers, or a beer and a cocktail in the evening with friends.

Ice Club Roma

Ice Club Roma is a trendy place located in Rome, in the historic Rione Monti. It is also the only one of its kind in Italy. By entering the Ice Club Roma, you immediately realize that everything is cold. The place is completely covered with ice on the walls. We are accompanied by ice sculptures all around, and the glasses in which cocktails are served are also iced!

The internal temperature of the room never exceeds -5 ° C. At the entrance, a well-stocked wardrobe invites us to choose our cloak that will protect us from the cold. The seats are covered with nice white furs to avoid freezing.

The staff of the Ice Club Roma is very nice and very skilled: they are also experts in the preparation of many types of cocktails. Like any self-respecting cold place, this place serves the best brands of original Russian vodka. Open until late at night, with good music to listen to, it is definitely an experience not to be missed upon your Roman holiday.
