Black Market Monti
Time Out says
Indie bands regularly play live sets from between the velvet sofas and repurposed furniture that fill this hipster bar in Rome’s Monti neighborhood.
Bursting with vintage sofas and original artwork, BlackMarket in Monti feels like walking into your much cooler friend’s awesome basement apartment. The bar is perfectly at home in the increasingly trendy neighborhood, but manages to avoid feeling artificial or pretentious. Instead, the multiple rooms and mix of furnishings make for an intimate setting for a few drinks and conversation. The space also often hosts temporary exhibits and is one of the best bars in the area to catch a live show. The menu of beer, wine and typical cocktails is adequate, but the cozy atmosphere and eclectic music performances are really what make this one of the city’s best places to drink.
Time Out tip: Go full Roman hipster by ordering the vegan burger to pair with Blackmarket’s own signature IPA from a local microbrewery.
