If you’re hooked on blues and jazz music, then a night at a jazz bar on Vicolo San Francesco a Ripa is recommended.
With no cover fees being charged for minor acts, Big Mama is a great place to not only meet and greet jazz performers who’re on the rise but blues and jazz musicians with big names as well. Although you’ll have to pay more than 15 to 30 Euros to catch them, you also have the chance to simply pay the 13-Euro membership fee. However, you’ll have to ensure that you go to Big Mama before July and after September as it closes during these months.
