Drink Kong is more than just a bar. More than a venue. Rome may not have the cool or cosmopolitan reputation of a London, Tokyo or New York but things here are changing. And Drink Kong - the brainchild of cocktail guru, Patrick Pistolesi - brings to the Eternal City a style and concept never seen before. The space sees mixology, food, music, visual art and fun come together. Pistolesi is known locally as the guy who has revolutionized mixology in Rome and with his talented bar team Livio Morena, Riccardo Palleschi and Davide Diaferia; business partners Claudia Gianvenuti, Massimo Palmieri, Richard Ercolani and Ilaria Valeri; and chef Marco Morello (owner of Testaccio Marketï¿½'s FoodBox), has brought this new venture to life. In the main cocktail bar, you can drink and eat at the counter and the menu is an eclectic international mix with tacos, steamed buns, dumplings and even scones making the cut. In the Tokyo-inspire hidden barï¿½', the Ginza Room, private events and tastings take place. There's also the Music Hall with nightly live entertainment and on the way to the bathrooms (hot tip - don't miss them!), there are a couple of vintage 80s arcade games. So you could say, Drink Kong kind of has it all! Open nightly until late, except Mondays. METRO: Colosseo.
