Remember all those teenage movies and home parties on a budget? That’s pretty much how students party in here as well. Our best picks:
* Kulturhaus – with a post-apocalyptic design, this is the cheapest club in the Old Town. The DJs either play 90s indie rock bands (downstairs) or drum’n’bass mixed with dubstep (upstairs), so this is the natural home of Bucharest’s exuberant young population.
Tip: it’s only open Friday and Saturday nights
* Club A was founded back in the 60’ by the students from the University of Architecture. It was the first club where locals could listen and dance to music from the West. Today it’s still considered a student place with good music, cheap prices and a youthful atmosphere.
Tip: girls have long drinks 1+1 free
* El Grande Comandante gathers crowds at the borderline between students and young professionals. If you last until the morning, they might serve you with house soup as a hangover cure.
Tip: every Wednesday unlimited beer for 5€
* Surubelnita is the place to be if you’re up for a real authentic experience. The venue was inspired by the hippie seaside resort Vama Veche and the beaches of the Black Sea. Every week they have live Romanian folk music where you can make new friends and learn the language.
Tip: weekly they choose a random day with long drinks 1+1 free
