Before leaving NYC for Rome, I went on the Big Mama webpage and made reservations for a Friday night show. We were immediately seated upon arrival (after being given cards for discounts for our next visit) to the left of the stage but with a...More

Big Mama comes highly recommended by most accounts. However, our visit was a little disappointing. The venue is mainly seated, with a clear view of the stage for many, but comfort is non-existent. Far too many tables positioned too close together, and uncomfortable seating, make...More

We found out about this little club in the Trastevere neighbourhood from a stranger on the street. Turned out to be a great find. Big Mama is a small club in a basement on a quiet side street of this bustling area. We paid 10...More

Cool atmosphere it's definitely a older place, 10 per person on the first visit but it's free after drinks are kinda expensive but there is no one crowding you.

Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of

Yes, but it is quite cheap (5-10euros, much cheaper than many clubs) and it is valid for 12 months in case you go back again (next visits will be free entry)
