The Race Club Speakeasy: Member's Club and Cocktail bar in Rome, few steps from Colosseum

The Race Club Speakeasy Rome

The Race Club Speakeasy is fast becoming a beloved late-night underground den. Hidden from plain sight, we are seriously dedicated to our cocktails.
Settle in and relax on one of our plush sofas with a well-mixed libation unique to Race Club’s menu. Choose between a classic recipe, a classic drinks reinterpreted or one of our signature cocktails.

There’s also an aperitivo available evenings, from 6pm to 9pm with food that matches perfectly with the cocktails.
We take reservations and accomodate large groups for special events such as birthday parties, company aperitivos or a simple party to celebrate the fact that it’s Friday.

1870

Among the still resounding voices of those who have long since passed, it’s said there was a carboneria of a secret society.

1957

For many years the building was abandoned, and a century later it was restructured and transformed into a recording studio where many noted Roman singer/songwriters emerged.

1974

This men’s gathering place quickly became a renowned hangout for a wider clientele, where it was possible to take part in nighttime activities and gamble.

2015

We’re a speakeasy. Everything that happens within these underground walls is even more secret than what took place in the past!
