  • Nightlife in Roman ruins

    2010-11-23

    An exciting new trend in Rome has been the staging of alternative nightlife activities in Roman historical buildings during the evenings. At Centrale Montemartini, a former power plant turned museum, jazz concerts were held during the summer. Operas were also held at the ruins of Roman public baths, according to the New York Times.

    The latest historical building to participate in this trend is the Great Hall of Trajan's Markets, which will host a happy hour on Thursday evenings from now through summer. The hall has reportedly served many varied functions over its 19-century history. In Roman times, it provided a space for public functions. It also served as a convent in the 16th century, and became a flower and grocery market in the 1930s. 

    The building currently functions as a museum during the daytime, and will host "Traiano Hour" in the evenings, which will offer visitors local wines, presentations and music. Guests will also be able to visit parts of the museum during the happy hour, ideally giving visitors a new way to experience the exhibits that they would not have during normal operating hours.

    Admission is about $7 and includes one drink, according to the news source.
