Rome has many nightclubs with different music, thematic, dress code, and entrance rules. Most places are located in the center or nearby, and each works on average from Thursday until Sunday. You should see the Roman nightlife by attending one of these clubs because Italians know how to party!
Here’s the list of the best dance nightclubs in Rome, according to my experience:
Undoubtedly, Art Café is one of the best dance nightclubs in Rome. Often, there are thematic parties and many guests. Moreover, there you will find locals and tourists with more than 1500 guests at 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 depends on the party’s theme.
There, you will find a great variety of cocktails for an average price of 15 euros. Importantly, you should come before 12-1 am not to have problems with the entrance, and most of the time, enter for free. Usually, the entrance is paid after midnight, but one cocktail is included in the price of 15 euros.
You should better book the guest list or make a reservation in advance (Sms/What’s app: name + date + list /table).
Opened in 2016 and located right near Art Café, Babel is also one of the most popular nightclubs in Rome. The place is very spacious and has a private zone for a particular guest list. Moreover, there are often thematic parties, electronic dance, house music, R’n’B & hip-hop hits.
The Babel Roma disco represents a small EDM paradise right in the center of Rome where good musical taste meets a bubbly mood, making the club evenings unique. Additionally, there are substantial red leather sofas, baroque-style walls, and Swarovski lamps hanging from the ceiling. All the rules with the entrance and prices are similar to Art Café 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 an 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. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend this club to a group of women.
Qube is a significant and spacious nightclub with three levels, where you can choose one of the levels with the music you most like. There are many thematic nights with fire dancers and various theatrics. Moreover, the most popular event is the Muccassasina Friday night special, famous among the LGBT community. Prices for cocktails range from 10 to 20 euros.
Explore Rome in the most comfortable way!
Qube doesn’t work during summer months.
Spazio 900 is a luxury nightclub with 1000 mq, where different exhibitions, concerts, and trade shows occur. Located inside the Palazzo dell’Arte Antica, the building embodies the fascist architecture made by Mussolini in the 1930s. Moreover, famous DJs often give concerts in this club. You can check their events on the Facebook page. Talking about prices, cocktails start from 10 to 15 euros.
Located in Rome, the Ostiense district, the club is 100 meters from the Garbatella metro stop. There are three rooms with different music styles. The first room offers house and tech music. You will find Hip Hop songs in the second room, while the third room offers lounge music and is a perfect place to relax with a cocktail. Moreover, the ambiance of this club is great. Talking about prices, there is an excellent variety of cocktails ranging from 10 to 15 euros.
Toy RoOm is a local roman nightclub located in the center of Rome, near Piazza Barberini. Every weekend there are thematic parties and a friendly ambiance. However, the club is not spacious enough. Despite this fact, all the parties there are full of fun, and the music is outstanding. Usually, there are popular music hits and great DJs, but the choice of songs also depends on the theme of the party. Overall, it is worth visiting this club for a night full of fun and alcohol. It has average prices for cocktails, as in any other popular nightclub in Rome.
Located right near Largo Argentina, in the historic center of Rome, Sharia Vari is a trendy place, especially among students. Yes, it has excellent music, and prices for cocktails start from 10 euros, but the club size is disappointing. There are two dance floors, where young people usually crowd one, and the other is frequently used for closed parties or has more chilled music.
Overall, the place is excellent according to its location and 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. 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 is considered one of Rome’s best dance nightclubs, and I agree with it because it always invites famous DJs and their parties to be held at the highest level. Moreover, it is spacious and has average prices. This nightclub’s philosophy is connecting music with nature because people nowadays depend on mechanisms. Additionally, Goa presents theatrical performances, art installations, renovated design, and a transformation into a proper botanical garden starting in October 2017. The club works from Thursday to Saturday until 4 am and until 1 am on Sunday.
Rome has plenty of nightclubs with different designs and thematic, where each can find something that matches his tastes. Also, most clubs don’t need special reservations and work until the early morning. However, to secure your entrance and not wait in a long queue, I recommend you always book a guest list or a table in advance. Have a fun night!
