We've got some news to spill from the heart of Bar Italia…??

After 14 rockin' years, our beloved Bar Italia is raisin' the curtain for the last act. Yep, you heard it right, this adventure is coming to an end. Also Metropolitain, our partner in crime for 8.5 epic years, is joining the closing party too...?

Until August 31st, we're still in business, cooking up those amazing Italian vibes that have become our signature jam. But once the clock strikes midnight, it's officially lights out.

 

Now, mark your calendars and set your alarms for August 26th, cause that's when we're throwing the ultimate closing party from 18:00 till late.

Let's give Bar Italia and Metropolitain the biggest love for the last time.

See you on August 26th, ready to rock and roll for one last time! ??
