This is basically the place to come to hear major jazz acts in Rome, and if there's a big act playing you'd be well advised to make a booking (tel. 06.39742171).
Alexanderplatz is organised into several small rooms, each with cosy seating for 2-8 people, arranged around a central ground level stage. You can even choose to sit up on the balcony area where you get some great acoustics. Waitresses bring you your drinks or there's a bar with standing room only if you prefer.
There's a great wine list and they also do some food- in fact Alexanderplatz operates as a restaurant as well serving some pretty simple dishes and light suppers.
One of the best things of all is the people who come here: Romans, ex-pats, and travellers all bunched together and no attitude from them or the staff. Just people coming together to drink some Frascati and listen to the music.

The club also serves dinner, but reservations are recommended; it can get packed on weekend nights. Your best bet to get there is a cab - I ended up stumbling home late because the subway was closed for the night when I left. There is a cover charge at the door for "membership," but this gets you in for a few nights.
Getting there is not very easy. It's not on the subway line; the buses go near there, but I'm not sure which one to take. The club is a few blocks north of the Vatican, and it's easy to miss beacuse it's essentially a doorway that leads to a basement room. You may want to take a cab. I did walk from the club back to my hotel by the Piazza di Spagna - it was a long walk, but the weather was nice so it made for a good trip.
