‘Unique’ is an overused description, but not in the case of Drink Kong. This bar on a leafy square a short ride from Rome’s city centre combines 1970s futurism, King Kong and Japanese inspirations, in a jet-black, neon-lit nightclub-like space that combines multiple rooms and ambiences. Throughout, this is the place to be seen, with ’gram-friendly spots drawing in snap-happy punters, as much as cocktail enthusiasts who come for some of the most innovative cocktails in the city. The latest menu uses graphical shapes to communicate flavour, along with three flavour descriptions and only the spirit or liqueur listed as ingredients. While it feels a little like you’re ordering blind, Drink Kong has earned the trust of its customers. Its cocktails always deliver – and that’s regardless of how busy the bar is or what time of night you wander in.
