BIRRA DEL BORGO OPENS ANOTHER TWO SPOTS AT PIAZZA BOLOGNA AND PIGNETO (NEIGHBORHOOD)
Two brand new venues by Birra del Borgo land in Rome in the first half of October. They wink at Borgorose’s Bancone, the Birra del Borgo’s headquarter and brewery’s place, recreating L’Osteria di Birra del borgo’s authentic and friendly atmosphere.
We started off by opening the first Bancone at Borgorose in 2016. A new and usable retail place and tasting room. As pleasant as we decided to replicate it in Rome, actually, to duplicate it! Because there will be two new Banconi in the capital!
Thus, Piazza Bologna and Pigneto neighborhood are the venues where the Banconi will be located. The Banconi are focused on BdB’s beers, paired with basic but substantial gastronomic proposals, simplier and faster at Pigneto, well structured at Piazza Bologna. The two places are serving looks with the unique and iconic BdB’s style, wich represents the brewery since the foundation’s year as far back as 2005.
The Banconi are designed to be meeting places and sites of social contact, wich trasmit our values of warm hospitality and cultural exchange, already existing at L’Osteria di Birra del Borgo placed in Prati. Right on the street and outdoorsy, embracing new cuisine’s stream of giving greater consideration to people and human factor.
You can recognize the Bdb’s unique identity inside the rooms too, thanks to architectural common features such as resin floors and brass counters.
The Pigneto’s Bancone is more like an outdoor pub with 40-seat on the road and 12-seat at the counter. It will be guided by Francesco Galgano and it’s a bit more suited to your happy hour and after-dinner. 7 rotating taps, pairing with tasty snacks and a valuable selection of classic and beer-cocktails.
Instead the Piazza Bologna’s Bancone will serve dinner as well with 40-seat inside and 24-seat outside under the Mattia Iacazio’s direction. The rotating taps will be 10 there, one of wich is hand pump, always beside a great selection of cocktails. The gastronomic proposal will be based on quality and semplicity: fried food, yummy sandwiches, charcuterie platters, some sweet desserts and especially pizza, with doughs and toppings made by the Osteria di Birra del Borgo’s pizza chef Lucca Pezzetta. Lastly, the 2 happy hour formulas, classic and tasting, the second one pairing with 3 beers.
We still work together with the Roman art gallery Varsi at Banconi, whichwill invite periodically its artists for redecorating our venues. There will be official merchandise shops in both places. The Banconi will be open from 6 pm to 2 am all week.
The new Banconi will be a proper authentic, enjoyable and innovative experience inside the Bdb’s world!
