I spent 4 amazing days in Rome with my friends. We spent most nights enjoying the atmosphere, music, food and drink in Scholars. The staff where outstanding and very welcoming especially Mark. And the karaoke topped the lot. Great place and would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Rome. When in Rome, drink like the Irish !!!!

The title says everything. Great beer. Great service. Very friendly. Couldn't wish for anymore. Fantastic. After a stressful day this is the place to wind down and chill out. Best wishes from Mönchengladbach Germany.

We had such a great time here! We live in Italy, but we were visiting Rome with friends from the States. I haven't had a good burger since we left the States this summer, and this was a fabulous burger (so good we went back the next day). The 2 brothers, Rory and John, were hilarious and the service was... More

My boyfriend and I went to Rome for 3 nights and went to this pub 2 out of 3 of these nights. It was a great atmosphere, busy every night and there was a live band one of the nights. Staff were very friendly and there were all kinds of groups there - couples, families and groups of friends. Toilets... More

We spent hours in this pub during out 5 day stay in Rome. The atmosphere was great, bar staff brilliant particularly 'Roury' who looked after us so well during the afternoon and evening on New Years Eve. The beer was spot on and the food was probably some of the best we ate in Rome.If you are ever near this... More

Description
This quintessential Irish-owned and Irish–run pub is situated between Piazza Venezia and Largo Argentina right in the very heart of ancient Rome; an ideal place to take a well deserved break from sight-seeing, put your feet up and let us take care of you with our infamous Irish hospitality. Serving hot food all day everyday (11am until midnight and until 1am at the weekends), from a hearty Irish Breakfast, to our homemade Irish Stew. The food isn’t by no means the only perk at Scholars, with 18 different beers on draught (very rare for Italy), this pub really caters to any mans fancy. Though the highlight has to be the Whiskey Collection, over 250 bottles line the walls; Italy’s largest selection. Scholars prides itself on being a sporting haven, showing every major sporting event on 19 colossal screens, , rugby, soccer, Gaelic football, hurling, American sports, you name it. Scholars consists of two bars and also an upstairs dining area. With live music three times a week (including imported acts flown in from Ireland), Karaoke, Movie Nights and a Pub Quiz there really is no excuse to go to bed early! Oh yes, did I mention Scholars is also open until 4am 7 days a week.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
