Dram, one of the best jazz clubs in Rome

The best jazz clubs in Rome: find out a new whiskey bar with excellent live music

By surfing the net you’ll find many “ultimate guides” to the best jazz clubs in Rome. There are some traditional places where people from town and from abroad go to listen to good live music in the Eternal City. But now, whiskey lovers who are in the capital can enjoy a new special refuge among Rome jazz bars. A renovated boat on the Tiber opened some months ago to house one of the best whiskey bars in Rome called Dram. Omar Ghoneim, former owner and founder of the Gregory’s Jazz Club, wanted to bet on this location characterized by the breathtaking view, to turn it into a restaurant with excellent live music. And, given Ghoneim’s passion for whiskeys, of which he can be considered a real collector, he could only focus in particular on the beverage offer.
