6 Via degli Specchi
Rome , Italy

“Drink, eat, talk” is the motto of this ultra-stylish nightspot fashioned out of a former garage near Campo dei Fiori. Stake out one of the black and white leather 1960’s chairs in the front room when the aperitivo action starts around 6 p.m. with finger foods and Prosecco. In addition to its extensive and exotic drinks menu, Crudo’s creative Mediterranean food offerings are tasty but tiny, and usually uncooked (crudo means “raw”). When you want to forgo the martinis and concentrate on the Barolo, head to the separate wine room. A modish crowd hangs at Crudo every night until 1 or 2 a.m.
