If there’s an ideal place to meet the locals and discover the spirit of Bucharest, that place must be one of the city’s many bars. Whether you go for the drinks or for the vibe, you will find yourself in a winning situation. Here are just 10 of the Bucharest bars that locals love to come back to for a glass and a chat, from the Old Center hotspots to the craft beer bar and wine bar everyone is talking about.
Located in the Old Centre, Bucharest’s party district, The Urbanist has great drinks, cultivates a cool and relaxed vibe, and offers a charming street terrace, best enjoyed in summer. As it doubles as a trainers-and-denim shop, it attracts the hippest crowds, making it a great spot to catch up with the latest trends emerging in the city. On weekends it hosts DJ sets, turning it into a great place to kick off your night in the city.
Located in the same building as FIX, Palatul Universul, a beautifully-restored emblematic building in the heart of Bucharest, Apollo 111 is one of the coolest basements in the city. Enveloped by the charming and subtle light of a giant moon, the space can be intimate, but it best fulfils its potential when crammed with partygoers at the weekend. A theatre by design, it hosts plays regularly in a nearby venue, and concerts by alternative Romanian bands.
Linea / Closer to the Moon is one of the best places to see Bucharest from above while sipping an amazing cocktail. A hit with the locals in spring and on hot and heavy summer evenings, it has found a way to keep its guests closer to the moon even on late autumn and winter evenings. Under wind- and cold-proof pods that look like giant bubbles, you’ll be able to experience the same vibe and excellent drinks, while feeling like you’re in a space station.
