For DH's big birthday night in Rome, my current plan is for a booking at Al Ceppo at 9pm. We're also going to Galleria Borghese during the 5-7pm timeslot. In between, i was thinking of stopping somewhere for cocktails. Not really sure if there are nice bars/lounges in the Parioli area. So right now, my plan is to perhaps stop in somewhere along Via Veneto. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    The terrace bar upstairs in the hotel Eden, via Ludovisi, just off via Veneto, is simply beautiful and very elegant. Failing that I'd go to another hotel rather than a bar on via Veneto. I think the Majestic also has a beautiful bar, but the Eden has charm plus a superb view.

      You can't beat the canal side bar at the Gritti Palace. And if the weather isn't cooperating inside is pretty nice too.

        But it's in Venice. The question was for Rome.

          Thanks Maureen. I was starting to look up Gritti Palace and wondered why Venice kept coming up.

            My apologies. I guess I just have Venice on the brain.
