Café Bar Roma, called by patrons El Roma, was a fashionable Italian cafe located at the intersection of Calle Serrano and Calle de Ayala. The floors were made of marble, and the entrance was on Serrano. It was a place where Gregorio Marañon and Manuel de Falla liked to hold tertulias. It closed sometime around 1974. It was also a gathering place for meetings of the Círculo Sáfico de Madrid during the 1920s. There is nothing there to mark the spot.
