Bar Roma, located in Andersonville, has launched a new happy hour program. Each week, running Monday-Friday from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., bar guests may enjoy half price appetizers, meatballs, and select pours of rose. The happy hour menu is detailed below.
The welcoming decor in the bar features a merger of rustic Italian and industrial Chicago. The room incorporates local reclaimed wood, Chicago bricks, dramatic light fixtures, herringbone pattered wood bar, distressed bar stools, communal tables and grand leather banquette. Original penny tile and wood flooring found in the 1914 building is be patched with concrete, similar to a Roman ruin.
