Hotel de Russie Garden Bar
As one of the most picturesque and romantic places in Rome, the Garden Bar at the 5-star Hotel de Russie will simply take your breath away. Only steps from Rome’s iconic Piazza del Popolo, a popular square in the city’s central historic district, you’ll feel worlds away from the tourist crowds outside as you step inside this verdant green oasis. Wealth and sophistication is the name of the game here, where Rome’s elite crowd come to see-and-be-seen over well crafted cocktails, fine champagne and exquisite Italian wines served by white jacketed waiters. You’ll feel like an extra in a James Bond movie while you sip your drinks on the lush outdoor terrace, where the Hotel de Russie Garden Bar delivers a high-quality martinis worthy of the character’s well-known drink preference. This bar is famous for their mixed cocktails; in fact, they are often credited for starting the cocktail culture movement in Rome. The mixologist on staff, Massimo D’Addezio, is known for his creative and award-winning concoctions, including his signature de Russie Martini - a blend of sherry and vodka topped with a scoop of Beluga caviar.
