Rome Clubbing Guide With Club Reviews
Micca Club, Esquilino The Micca is a stylish, multifunctional club in the Esquillino area of the Italian capital. They are renowned for their extensive and interesting cocktail list. They have a wide range of musical genres dependent on the DJ spinning that night. You can hear everything from soul to retro and psychedelic Funk tunes. There are live performances here and their ”Fleamarket” night on Sunday is one of Rome’s most popular club nights. They have a 10 Euro appetizer buffet available but their cuisine does not receive positive reviews. The service is generally excellent and you may wish to arrive here for one of their infamously erotic Burlesque evenings.http://www.miccaclub.com/

This upmarket and expensive destination has Football stars, Television personalities and politicians walking through its doors every night of the week.
