Need an instrument? We got you covered!

We provide all the guitars and the bass. In some venues we’re allowed to use the drums, so we provide them as well. In one venue we have a piano. If you have a backing track, bring your iPod or USB drive and we’ll connect it right to our computer. Check out the single events for more information about the instrumentation – of course, if you want to bring your own guitar, bass, violin, etc., we’ll have it connected to our P.A. system in no time!

Be yourself. Be creative! If you’re a professional musician – great. We’ve hosted prominent people such as John Peter Sloan (Instant English) and Joy Villa, who recently was one of the cover stories of this year’s Grammy Awards. But if you you’re just getting started with music, the Open Mic is the perfect environment to practice your performance on stage. Take advantage of the many musicians who are there and that can give you great advice on how to improve! There is no competition, no judging, it’s all about sharing and having a great time!

This is where everything started. The Open Mic is set in an acoustic unplugged style, with two acoustic guitars, a bass, a piano and everything you need to be the star of the night! The first Irish Pub in Italy is a special gem in the center of Rome. It offers everything you need, from great beer to Irish dishes (Fish&Chips etc.). Also, it’s very well connected with two metro stops (Cavour, Piazza Vittorio Emanuele), the central train station and night busses, as well as a taxi stop just around the corner.

Our goal is to provide a platform for artists in Rome, Italy. We believe the best way to do this is by gathering Italian and international artists, where they can inspire each other and where they have a place to try new material. It is great for musicians, but also for those who are in Rome and are looking for what to do in Rome. This beautiful city deserves more than just piano bars and karaoke nights, and artists deserve more than serving just as a juke box in the background.

The Open Mic is:

  • a meeting point for international and local artists
  • great to promote your original music and your project
  • A way to rehearse your stage presence in front of an easy-going audience

Join us on facebook, twitter and send us your videos, so we can upload them to our Youtube Channel. Welcome to Open Mic Rome – Share the Music and the Love! #openmicrome
