Jerry Thomas opened in 2010, making it the first secret bar in Italy. In the beginning, it was frequented mainly by bar industry types sharing a common love of cocktail history but also experimentation. In the following years, the team at Jerry Thomas travelled the world to research and study, even coming up with their own gin and vermouth. Nine years later, under the bar stewardship of Federico Tomasselli, it has expanded its clientele to cocktail enthusiasts, tourists and locals, all looking to savour one of the refined classics, such as the Improved Aviation or House Martini, in the Roman speakeasy. From the moment you make it past the mysterious but intimidating door ritual, this bar will impress you with its charm. The intimate layout of tables and cosy bar area encourages you to make new friendships, especially in the late hours when Jerry Thomas is in its pomp.
