Description: Situated in the very heart of beautiful Rome beside the impressive Piazza Venezia, Scholars Lounge can boast to be the most famous bar not only in Rome but in Italy itself. Opened back in September 2005 the establishment has become a highlight in the entertainment of the Eternal City. The Largest of Rome’s Irish bars, Scholars is now also Italy’s most successful. This is due to numerous factors including it’s warm welcoming Irish staff, superb location, delious food (served seven days a week till midnight), weekly gigs (also some of which are flown over from Ireland – The Wolfe Tones played in September 2015 and The Fureys are due to play in 2017 just to mention but a few), karaoke sessions 3 times a week, pub quizzes and sporting events which are shown live on the bars 24 screens with surround sound. This is a story of an extremely impressive, unique and highly successful Irish pub that keeps improving and keeps giving locals and visitors to Rome a genuine Irish pub experience.

Bartenders from IRELAND. LOVED THE ACCENT! HUGE selection of BEER AND THE FOOD WAS GREAT. My husband ordered THE GUINNESS BEEF and I had a great soup. Our son ordered the burger which I guess was just OK. We stopped in for a beer on our way back from the COLOSSEUM and were so impressed, we returned the next evening for dinner. THERE'S MUSIC IN THE EVENINGS BUT TOO LATE FOR US!

Spent four days in Rome and you can always count on an Irish pub to make you feel at home. Staff is super helpful and provided tips and pointers for getting around best, also made great food and drink recommendations. Be sure to ask for Rachel, we ended up at Scholars twice during our trip because of her friendly demeanor and attentive service.

Watched Champions League final here 2017 and met a friend who was in Rome for the weekend. Great vibe and atmosphere for drinks and meeting people. Mark the bartender super friendly and offered great service. Was awesomene to talk travel adventures with him. When in Rome, visit Scholars and hopefully you get to chat with Mark.
