Mama Shelter Rooftop: Your home away from home in Rome


Eat, drink, mix & mingle. Mama Rooftop is the perfect refuge for those looking for a unique experience and evening in Rome.

There’s an awesome new addition to the Cipro-Vatican-Prati area of Rome and just in time for summer rooftop season! Mama Shelter will re-open its rooftop bar on June 1st. This bright, vibrant hotel whose heartfelt mission and purpose is to bring people together is from the same Trigano family that brought you the first Mama Shelter of Paris, France in 2008.


The environment and energy is fresh and playful at Mama Rooftop with furniture to match. With an array of eclectic seating to choose from – wooden spa bleachers to retro garden patio furniture, French bistro chairs and the most colorful umbrellas, printed pillows and plants. There’s even a few lemon trees!

Enjoy panoramic views overlooking Rome, the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basilica while you eat, drink, and mingle in the cool open air featuring the same live music from their downstairs bar and restaurant. Much like the rest of the Mama Shelter Hotel, the atmosphere at Mama’s Rooftop is delightful and welcoming yet sophisticated and glamorous. And the crowd is a good mix from business and young professionals to local singles and international tourists visiting.  


Just a little preview from their summer rooftop food and drink menu: the traditional tagliere of Italian cheese and meats, guacamole or hummus with bread, beef tartare, oysters and signature desserts like their maritozzo with ice cream and gratina or their creamy buffalo ricotta with salted caramel and hazelnut, featuring refreshing and sometimes tropical cocktails like their ‘Chiquita Banana’, ‘The Kiss’ (Campari infused with coffee beans made from their special blend from Sant’ Eustachio Caffè) or the many other Mama drinks inspired by Pop Art. Also on the menu are wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverages and classic cocktails.

Come here to relax and chill with friends or even solo, because at Mama you can always meet new and interesting people.


Pleasure, fitness and wellness are also intertwined at Mama Rooftop with DJ evenings every Thursday night from 8pm – 11pm, daily yoga sessions from 7am to 8am in the mornings and spinning sessions in the evenings (50 minutes each, from 7pm to 9pm) which will be held on the rooftop from the 1st of June to the 30th of September. Sessions are also open to external guests of the hotel for a fee that includes the use of the changing rooms, showers and Mama Baths.

But more than just a fun night out and a location for training and relaxation, Mama Shelter Rooftop is a place that brings international travelers from around the globe right to the local community here in Rome – quite literally. Strategically placed just outside of the historic city center, Mama furthers promotes the blending of different cultures and backgrounds, all while supporting small businesses. Not only is it a wonderful exchange and a truly immersive experience, integrating the Roman community with those visiting the city – this is social interaction and responsible tourism at its best. Open every evening from 6pm to midnight.
