2018: Off Club
Restaurant bar Rome




Off Club is a Japanese-Italian restaurant, mixology cocktail bar and lounge in Rome’s Via di Casal Bertone. Under one raw gold ceiling, it reunites the cinema of Kubrick and De Palma, Grand Theft Auto, Miami Art Deco District, psychedelic soul music, the Jung’s primordial images, the Escher’s perspectives, Byzantine iconostases, and Japanese folding screens.
