Types of Bars Near Rome Pantheon

If you sit at any of the bars or cafes right on the Piazza della Rotonda, where the Pantheon is, you will have a spectacular view.

piazza della rotonda with pantheon and restaurantsHaving a drink right on Piazza della Rotonda, with this killer view of the Pantheon, is definitely a fun thing to do.

Just don't count on great food, an excellent wine list, or low prices.

There are plenty of places like this near the Pantheon and frankly, all over Rome. If it's a view of the Pantheon you want, it can be worth giving up the option of great wine list.

But venture even just a little bit off the square and you can find some other excellent options like:

Wine bars near the Pantheon with a serious wine list

If you're looking for a wine bar near the Pantheon where you can really get into the wine and discuss options with a sommelier, these are the best spots.

In most cases, you will also find good food, whether just to accompany the wine, or for a full-on meal.

There are plenty of excellent wine bars, called enoteche (plural for enoteca), within a short walking distance of the Pantheon.

Enoteca Spiriti

Spiriti wine bar - The best option, hands down, for a wine bar near the pantheon is Enoteca Spiriti

Enoteca Spiriti at piazza di pietraThe interior of Enoteca Spiriti at Piazza di Pietra is so inviting, but you can also eat and drink outside on the piazza.

This wine bar is also a cocktail bar and it has a kitchen. Really it has it all: 

A great wine selection, American style martinis, outdoor seating, good food, and a superb view (Spiriti is on piazza di Pietra and overlooks Hadrian's palace. If you sit inside, you won't really have this view unless you snag the table by the window.)

Enoteca Achilli al Parlamento

Enoteca Achilli al Parlamento is a wine-lover's paradise smack in Rome's historic centre.

This is the place to come for a quiet, elegant drink and nibbles near the pantheon. The front is a wine emporium, floor to ceiling with a huge assortment.

The next room feels like a private club, where you can relax and enjoy your wine by the glass (or bottle of course.)

Their snacks and appetisers are also lovely.

The back room is a restaurant but in my opinion the food is a tad over-priced. I personally prefer to come here strictly for the wine-bar experience.

As the name says, they are right near the parliament building, and many politicians and other high-rollers frequent this wine bar near Rome pantheon.

It's a superb experience, especially if you want to do some serious wine-tasting with a knowledgable sommelier.

Cul de Sac

Retro-Vino

In recent years, a lot of daring young chefs staked out their claims to a new kind of cuisine on the Rome dining scene - Italian with an ultra modern twist. In the case of Retro-bottega, the formula worked beautifully.

Recently they opened nearby Retro-vino, a wine bar/café. You'll find quality wines and coffees here, along with excellent nibbles to accompany them.

Da Fortunato Wine Bar

One of Rome's old-time classic restaurants is Da Fortunato and you don't get a much better view of the Pantheon than this. 

da fortunato at the pantheonOne of the newest wine bars near Rome Pantheon is the one opened by famed restaurant Da Fortunato, just next door.

Recently, they opened their own wine bar, Enoteca da Fortunato, right next to their restaurant.

With over 90 labels and a welcoming, long table down the center, this new venture looks very promising indeed!

Bars near the Pantheon with rooftop views

There are a few places near the pantheon where you can enjoy drinks with a view.

Three of them offer views of the Pantheon dome itself. The others are also lovely, and may be a good choice if you want to be a just a bit more low-key.

Minerva Roof Garden

The Grand Hotel La Minerva is closed for renovations.

We do not yet have an opening date but will update this page when we do.

The rooftop bar and restaurant of the Grand Hotel della Minerva is one of my all-time favorite rooftop bars near the Pantheon, if not in all of Rome.

It's a bit old-fashioned but I love it. I love the open space, the charming staff, and these stunning views.

The Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel, Autograph Collection by Marriott

This newish rooftop bar on top of the Marriott Pantheon Iconic Hotel is another fantastic spot for a drink with killer views of the Pantheon.

Their roof terrace is wide and spacious and extremely comfortable. Delicious snacks and a very professional waitstaff round out the experience.

Eitch Borromini - La Grande Bellezza

While the Eitch Borromini may actually be in nearby Piazza Navona, and while the view of the Pantheon dome may be slightly lost with all the other Rome rooftops, not to mention the view of St. Peter's dome in the other direction, I would still consider this one of the best spots for a drink with a view near the Pantheon.

rooftop views from eitch borrominiFrom the Eitch Borromini rooftop, you have superb views of Rome, including of the dome of the nearby Pantheon (as seen in the middle of this photo.)

That said, this rooftop is a little particular.

They are a really exclusive rooftop bar and space is limited. It can get super-crowded and sometimes it's so full you cannot get in.

In high season, you need to reserve in advance. Also their food is really expensive.

On the other hand, nobody has views like these.

Details: 


These next two rooftop bars are very close to the Pantheon but don't offer a view of the monument itself:

9 Hotel Cesari

I really love the rooftop at 9 Hotel Cesari.

It's a great place for a drink near the pantheon and it's got a more casual vibe about it than the ones with the actual Pantheon view.

Details: 

  • Via di Pietra, 89/a

  • Hours seem to change regularly. Sometimes in winter they are open on weekends. Sometimes they open earlier in the day and other times later. Call to make sure they are open before you go.

Singer Palace Hotel Roof

The Singer Palace Hotel is named for the Singer Sewing company factory that once stood here.

I really love this hidden gem for enjoying a sunset cocktail near the Pantheon. (They are also close to the Trevi Fountain.)

It feels like a hidden secret and it's more subdued than some of the other rooftop bars in the area.

Regular local bars near Rome Pantheon

If you're not seeking a wine bar or a rooftop experience, these little spots are great cocktail bars near Rome Pantheon.

You can almost always just show up without reserving, and you can enjoy an aperitivo (drink and some snacks) without breaking the bank.

Ciampini

Ciampini is a very local spot and absolutely one of my go-to places to meet friends for a drink or coffee.

ciampini bar - great for people watchingCiampini is one of the most popular bars near Rome Pantheon with locals who love to see and be seen.

If you happen by here and are not stopping for a drink, you may want to try their gelato, which is some of the best in Rome!

Mr. Wine

If you blinked, you'd miss this tiny wine bar near Rome right next to Parliament (and hence near the Pantheon.)

It's a local haven with just a couple of tables outside and it makes for a very cozy stop when you're in the area.

Details: 

Enoteca della Pigna

Enoteca della Pigna is a quirky little spot that specializes in Sardinian food and wine. It's a kind of shop/bar/restaurant.

He doesn't actually have a kitchen, so when I say restaurant, I am speaking very loosely. Basically you can get some cheesy or meaty snacks with your drink.

a small enoteca with just a few tables outsideEnoteca della Pigna is one of my favorite quirky wine bars near Rome Pantheon.

The location on Piazza della Pigna is one of the best parts.

While it's centrally located just blocks from the Pantheon, it's hidden away and quiet.

There is a sweet church here, a really good caffè, and a little boutique or two. And you are just minutes on foot from the Pantheon.
