Pub in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

This might seem like an identikit Irish pub, but the craic here has Italian twists – the clientele are well-groomed expats and Romans, and you can order Bellinis as well as Guinness. It shows all the big football and rugby games and there's occasional live music too. Find its bijou pavement terrace at the foot of the staircase leading up to Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli.
