Over Thirty Years After First Opening, Alexanderplatz Is Still The Ultimate Live Jazz Haven And The Best Kept Jazz Secret In The City.

A few streets away from the Ottaviano metro in Via Ostia sits Rome’s oldest jazz club, Alexanderplatz, a down to earth venue which wouldn’t be out of place in the mecca of Jazz: Greenwich Village, New York. Alexanderplatz is underground, figuratively as a haven to an underground musical genre which has thrived here over the last thirty years, and literally. As you descend the stairs into the cavernous interior, you’d be forgiven for forgetting you were in the heart of Rome. Describing itself as a cradle of jazz, the graffitied walls and photos of legendary performers imbue Alexanderplatz with a feeling of experimentalism which defined jazz in its heyday.

Many of the most prominent jazz, blue s, soul, music artists have performed at the Alexanderplatz, including Wynton Marsalis, Brad Meldhau, Red Rodney, Freddy Cole, Stefano BollaniFabrizio Bosso, Sarah Jane Morris, Steve Coleman and many more. Founded in 1984 by Giampiero Rubei, Alexanderplatz hosts live concerts from 10pm (doors open at 8:30pm).

With a concise list of cocktails, sangria and a few non-alcoholic options, Alexanderplatz has a drinks menu in line with the trendiest Manhattan jazz clubs. It is also possible to dine and try the menu of  the new Chef Denis from Tuscany.

This synthesis between the experimental and sophisticated is what makes Alexanderplatz unique. Where else are you going to sip a cocktail and watch great live jazz in Rome?
