Bucharest: Night Life Tour

2. Bucharest: Night Life Tour

A few steps from the city center, the residential area begins so you will get to visit one of the local neighborhood bars. Things there are totally different. You will find relaxed, casually dressed locals interested in an open conversation with you. Also, let’s not forget about the prices which are about half the prices from the Old City, making it a great reason for a good start. The next step will be to get in touch with the most interesting bars of Bucharest. Depending on your preferences, you will have a large variety of concept pubs, starting with minimalistic, funk and traditional to the more posh and glossy ones. In the end but only at the halfway point during the tour, you will switch to a club. Imagine that Bucharest is competing with Ibiza in this field, the atmosphere is more than incredible.

As a young woman who happened to travel by herself in Romania and to have this tour as solo, I highly recommend Razvan's and Ioanna's bar tour! I instantly felt safe with them and knew from the start of the tour that I will have a great time that night. They both created a friendly atmosphere and made sure that all participants (around 17 people who were strangers between us) are included and feel part of the group. I am happy to have met so many people from different countries and to share a drink with them. The bars/clubs we visited were amazing, right in the heart of the Old City.

I highly recommend this pub crawl to anyone in search of a genuine nightlife experience in Bucharest (tourist or not). It was my second time at the pub crawl and as always, our guides, Ioana and Razvan, did a great job, since they managed to create a group energy that made the whole night a wonderful escape.

One of the best nights you can get in Bucharest. You get it all: lovely guides, amazing atmosphere as they try and the best to attend everyone’s needs and even craziness if that is what you look for. Totally recommend!

This tour was so much fun! Mirela is a fantastic host, she knows all the best spots in the old town, and was great at introducing people to each other and making sure everyone had a great time.

Great time with a great bunch of like minded people. Loved it
