Why nightlife & clubbing in Bucharest are so great?
Bucharest is not called The City of Contrasts for no reason – it’s a destination where you can find something for every taste and where closing time is whenever the last person leaves the show/passes out.
The Romanian capital actually has a couple of unique ingredients for a great vibe: the people, the interior design and the entrance fees. From nonconformist bars to classic Irish pubs, eccentric clubs to lush strip shows, the interior design is fascinating: the lightning, the bar setup and the decorations are all responsible for a very social “living room” feeling.
But what is a living room without guests? With such an intimate atmosphere, it’s easy to talk to other men or women. Most of the locals are open to strangers and they don’t mind if you blend in, so most of the time you will see a melting pot of cultures on the dance scene.
As if that’s not enough to get your party mood on, most of the clubs have free entrance (some only for women), so you can do a hop-on, hop-off from one place to another.
What’s more and important to mention: Bucharest is safe. You’ll have no problem wandering the streets late at night, but still be careful if you had one too many glasses.
Remember: no matter what you’re into, Bucharest has something for you. But first, make sure to pay a visit to Shoteria where you can find the best shots in the Old Town (from 1€ up). After you warmed up, keep in mind that there are usually 5 kind of parties:
