Blue Orange Bar

Bar, Pub, Pub Grub
Blue Orange (or BO) has a studenty vibe and is a huge favorite with local young people. With a very fun and relaxed environment where it’s easy to make new friends or enjoy a beer with old ones; and where friendly staff, games, foosball, and inexpensive brews all coalesce. And in addition to all that, alternative rock music is played in the ground-floor pub, while the other rooms host parties with local DJs every weekend.

Shamrock is a great bar and Irish pub with excellent customer service and a choice of many great local draught beers. The food is also good quality and their pizzas are not to be missed. The environment of the pub is very cosy with tables both inside and outside during the summer. A typical pub ambience is accompanied by pictures and musical instruments attached to the walls. The bar is open pretty much all day, so it‘s a great place to come for lunch and dinner when you don‘t fancy partying.

Džem Pub

Pub, Bar, Pub Grub
Džem Pub is located on the 5th floor of a building in the very heart of Kaunas. It is much beloved not only for wonderful views from the balcony and the glass walls of the bar, but also for live sports streaming, a friendly atmosphere, live music events, discos, karaoke and open mic evenings, not to mention great beer!


Bar, Pub, Cafe, Pub Grub, Lithuanian, $$$
This café-bar is very popular with the local bohemia as it has a relaxing and alternative vibe with old-school interiors and friendly and artistic people. Their food is top-notch and really inexpensive. The drinks are also very good and the low prices allow visitors to have as many beers as they like to wash their dinner down. In summer, the bar also has an open terrace, which is perfect for having lunch al fresco.
