Most of the places located in the center or nearby and each of them works on average from Thursday until Sunday. You should definitely see the Roman nightlife by attending one of these clubs because Italians know how to party!
Here’s the list of the best 10 nightclubs in Rome, according to my experience:
Art Cafè Rome
Undoubtedly, Art Café is one of the best nightclubs in Rome. Often, there are thematic parties and many guests. Moreover, there you will find both locals and tourists with more than 1500 guests in every party. It has a very convenient location near Villa Borghese. Also, the club is very spacious and most of the time there are popular international music hits or the choice of music depend on thematic of the party.

Discoteca Akab Roma
The name of the place evokes the deeds of Captain Ahab, a character who died fighting the whale Moby Dick. The Akab Roma nightclub is always crowded and has two levels: the ground floor with the house and live music, while the upper floor has R’n’B and hip-hop music. Moreover, each Tuesday there is the evening of electro house music, on Thursdays, there is Black Music, while on Fridays and Saturdays there are house, deep music, and popular hits. In short, it is an excellent place to spend evenings full of fun. However, be careful because the face control is not that strong and sometimes you can meet drunken strangers there. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend this club to a group of women.

Toy RoOm is a local roman nightclub located in the center of Rome, near Piazza Barberini. Every weekend there are thematic parties and friendly ambiance. However, the club is not enough spacious. Despite this fact, all the parties there are full of fun and the music is really good. Usually, there are popular music hits and great DJ’s, but the choice of songs also depends on the thematic of the party. Overall, it is worth to visit this club for a night full of fun and alcohol. It has average prices for the cocktails, as in any other popular nightclub in Rome.

Located right near Largo Argentina, in the historic center of Rome, Sharia Vari is a very popular place, especially among students. Yes, it has a nice music and prices for cocktails start from 10 euro, but the size of the club is so disappointing. There are two dance floors, where one is usually crowded by young people and the other one frequently used for closed parties or just has more chilled music. Overall, the place is excellent according to its location and in music choices. Also, nights in Shari Vari are full of fun. But if you don’t like places with crowds of people, you should better consider another nightclub or a bar. Additionally, the club works from Tuesday to Sunday from 08:30 am to 4:00 am. Shari Vari also has a restaurant and is a good place for an aperitif.

Goa Night Club
Goa considered as one of the best nightclubs in Rome and I can agree with it because this place always invites popular DJ’s and their parties are held at the highest level. Moreover, it is spacious and has average prices. The philosophy of this nightclub is in connecting music with nature because people nowadays are so dependent on mechanisms. Additionally, Goa presents theatrical performances, art installations, renovated design, and a transformation into a true botanical garden, starting from October 2017. The club works from Thursday to Saturday until 4 am and until 1 am on Sunday.

Rome has a plenty of nightclubs with different designs and thematic, where each can find something that matches his tastes. Also, most of the clubs don’t need special reservations and work until the early morning. However, in order to secure your entrance and not to wait in a long queue, I recommend you to always book a guest list or a table in advance. Have a fun night!
