In Rome, pubs come a dime a dozen. But that doesn't mean that they're all the same nor are they all good.

In the centro storico, the most popular pubs are the Abbey Theatre, Scholar's Irish Lounge and Trinity College.  

The Abbey Theatre is famous for broadcasting American sports games and serves up a hearty hamburger. Looking for live music every night of the week? Then, Scholar's Lounge is your place.
