A work-friendly café with great food, drinks, live music and free wi-fi in Rome
Ex Circus – a cozy cafe meets bar meets bistrot which doubles as a study room – is just steps away from Piazza Navona. Now, don’t let the “Circus” in the name scare you off. There are no creepy clowns or weird magic shows here. In fact, it is only named Circus because of the resemblance – fun, food, friends, and music. And every week, Ex Circus has great live music playing, check out their Facebook page for events!
Better yet, Ex Circus has cozy couches, power outlets, and coffee tables. It maintains a homey, yet hip vibe, allowing one person to study in peace, while another person eats nearby. Perhaps the excellent classic rock and soft jazz music playlist contributes to this. Okay, enough about design. Let’s talk about the food! Imagine a place – in Rome – that serves everything from peanut butter and jelly bagels, caramel hot chocolate and superfood salads with avocados to smoothie bowls, raw juices and even vegan cookies and cakes. Create your own raw juice blend, indulge in a yummy açai bowl and don’t forget to taste their cake of the day!
While from 12pm to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays (starting October 6), come by Ex Circus to enjoy a rich brunch buffet with everything you can possibly imagine. The buffet varies each weekend, with a selection of Italian and international food. From cured meats and cheese boards to yummy salads, quiches and Roman pasta dishes, you’re in for a delicious treat. It’s truly a brunch fit for kings (or queens). And the best part? It will only set you back €12 (beverages excluded).
But don’t come just for the food and ambiance. Ex Circus floods its calendar with holistic events, alchemic aperitivos, gong baths and even yoga lessons. And don’t forget to mark your calendar for their various artistic exhibitions and musical events!
Indeed, Ex Circus offers all this and more (it can accommodate for groups for special events such as birthday parties). If you were a regular of Circus and enjoyed its hip, quirky, youthful vibe, wait until you step inside the all-new Ex Circus to be swept away. If you’re looking for a place in Rome to study by yourself or in a group, to eat a variety of (mostly healthy) food, to listen to live music in Rome, to have a drink, to indulge in relaxing events, or to immerse yourself in the various forms of art, Ex Circus will exceed your expectations.
