Butterfly Rome

Music, Food, Art and Mixology

The famous Hotel Butterfly has left the Flaminio neighbourhood to fly over the Tevere and land in the Foro Italico. And as well as changing location, it has changed its name to Butterly. But one thing hasn’t changed, the essence. Butterly is a mixology bar, restaurant with focacceria and cruditè, bar, jazz lineup and music venue open everyday till late. Experiencing Butterfly is like arriving to a private garden. The outdoor court is dedicated to all things music, performances, and events, whereas the enchanted garden is reserved for dinners, drinks, and aperitivi.

How to get there? This year, you can count on some buses to take you, but it will be more difficult without a car. Protected by the shadow of the Stadio Olimpico and hidden behind the trees, Butterfly maintains its DNA: a beautiful stone house sprinkled by lights, a sweet dinner area and a charming garden with benches and tables. What to drink at Butterfly? With some of the most talented Roman mixologists alternating as bartenders, you have to go for a cocktail. Sip on your well-deserved drink while enjoying good music.


Mondays are known as Blu Jazz Mondays with live music organized by Valter Paiola. On Tuesdays, the one and only crew of L-Ektrica takes the stage. If you don’t already know them, this is THE DJ crew that makes Rome dance and move on electronic music, please run to discover them! What about Wednesdays ? It’ll be the turn oof NOZOO, while on Thursday, let’s travel on the rhythm of foreign electronic music with guest DJs.

But let’s start talking about the serious things: The weekend! Rebel Rebel and She Made will share the stage twice a month each. Saturday, Touch The Wood will shake Butterfly with his tramp and Hip Hop vibes. On Sundays, finally, Lady Coco, Analpha Beat, Balsamo di Scimmia and Box 65 will make you forget that the end of a wonderful weekend has already come.


So what should you remember? New place but same spirit. With its secret garden, savage mixology and great music selection, Butterfly makes you forget about daily life. For those who used to spend their summer evenings at Hotel Butterfly, you’ll be happy to head to your HQ for the evening again. If you are new in Rome, this bar is a place you have to discover during your stay here.
