Salotto 42, Rome

Ostia, Italy, Europe: Salotto 42
42 Piazza di Pietra
Tel: 39 06 678 5804's insider take:

A growing Roman craze for book bars started here, in this elegant space right off Via del Corso. Select one of the glossy art books from the shelves and peruse it in a deep sofa or armchair while consuming nibbles from the early-evening buffet. The cool factor cranks up when the nighttime cocktail crowd arrives—as does the ambient soundtrack, sometimes deafeningly so.

Open Tue–Sat 10 a.m.–2 a.m.; Sun 10 a.m.–midnight.
