Hotel de Russie’s fabulous courtyard bar is the place to live Rome's 21st-century dolce vita. The hotel itself is the preferred address for VIPs and celebrities, so it makes sense that the garden bar is a posh and private Eden. At any time of year, the city’s best-dressed hold court at the outdoor tables, while a seat at the indoor bar is akin to winning the Iron Throne. It’s important to note that, since the Stravinskij Bar single-handedly resurrected Rome's cocktail scene, drinks will cost you royally. Try the signature martini, The Gibson.
