The Open Mic is back and we celebrate!

October is going to be a hot month! 40 years ago the Fiddler’s Elbow, the first Irish Pub in Rome, opened its doors. And 10 years ago a young Irish man started a little international event known as the Open Mic, which was a first in Rome as well and has become a household name today.

Join us on thursday, meet like-minded locals and travellers, enjoy the live music, taste a cool Guinness and, if you like, perform on our stage! The Fiddler’s Elbow awaits you for the most authentic Open Mic event in Rome – every thursday, starting 9pm. #TogetherWePlayBetter
