Bucharest pubs & bars

by firemanphil

I will be in Bucharest in about 10 days and am staying overnight in the Carpati Hotel, where I have stayed many times before en route to Targu Jiu. This time is different however, because my 29 yr old daughter will be with me, and I want her to enjoy her first visit to Romania on what will be my 21st visit. I know Bucharest centre reasonably well, but I'm not not so au fait with the location of the best bars. I plan to take her to the Vatra restaurant opposite the Carpati, but then I would like to move on to a few good bars or pubs that are not too far away, but to be honest I don't really know of any in that part of town. Anybody got any suggestions?

Re: Bucharest pubs & bars

21 times in Romania? wow!

These days people prefer spening lazy nights outside, in the old city center (especially on Selari and French Street). These two streets are filled with tables from different bars/restaurants/cafes.

A few other pubs&bars I recommend:
-Lime Light Piano Bar: Calea Victoriei no.100, behind Hilton Hotel - live good music
-Clubul Taranului (Peasant's Club) in the back yard of the Romanian Peasant's Museum: 3 Kisselef Bvd. Here they organise some great concerts or you can just enjoy some food and drinks until late at night on the terrace.

Travel Tips for Bucharest

Guidebooks and useful information

by Dabs

It's important to get a recent guidebook as things seem to be changing rather rapidly in Romania. I would recommend getting the Rough Guide and/or Lonely Planet, they seem to handle Central & Eastern European countries with more depth than Fodor's or Frommer's.

The best online resource I found was In Your Pocket and you can also pick up an updated copy once you get to Bucharest. This information seemed to be the most reliable as it is updated more frequently than the guidebooks.

I read a couple of interesting books before I left on the trip, one on the Ceausescu's and one on Vlad Tepes and his ties to vampire lore.

Living in Bucharest - the great majority

by josephescu

Endless quarter of concrete blocks of flats, dozens of blocks built after the same plans all over the country. A reflection of the communist times, when once-farmers living in the countryside have been stimulated to move to large cities to help the “communist industrial development” of the country. From the point of view of the cities development, this meant that industrial parks were erected despite of pollution they caused, urban population increased rapidly to serve as workforce and replace the “old social order” and bourgeoisie-predominant population.

This is how entire dormitory quarters have appeared in the ‘60s and ‘70s, characterised by the 50sqm apartments built in matches-box like blocks. However, as time passed by, and following the earthquakes in 1977 and 1984, the construction standards and the rooms’ surface allowed to the working class living in these blocks have increased significantly (70sqm standard 2 rooms flat), while on the other hand, the dimensions of the blocks’ windows have continuously decreased, to make flats warmer during savings-driven heating shortages in winter time.

Many Romanians either had to...

by lichinga

Many Romanians either had to try to sell their home stuffs because they were short of money, or they wanted to renovate their furniture and kitchenware. In both cases, the result is you may find lots of shops (most of them unattractive and dusty, still I find them very interesting) were used things are sold. The name you will find is 'consignatie'. You must be patient to look for the piece you love most among lots of other stuff, I'm almost sure your patient will be rewarded; but, don't look for THE big business or fabolously cheap prices! The same rreason which brought you there, acted on thousands of people before you, and the sellers know their business just as anybody else: prices are honest or good, but you won't find anything at extravagant price....
The street were most of this shops is concentrated is called Strada Covaci, between Calea Victoriei and Bulevar Nicolae Balcescu, quite close to Piata Unirii and the University (Universitatea). Many shops may also be found in the same area.

While you're there, don't miss the Hanul lui Manuc, a traditional resting place, it is kept as it was in the past, although it lies in central Bucuresti now.

Old Books, Music and Art

by Romanian_Bat about Souvernir Shops in Bucharest

If looking for an old book, look up for an Anticariat (there are a few in the underground passage in University Square and there is another great one on Doamnei Street just after the crossing with Bratianu Avenue). The area around Lipscani Street is filled of places selling lots of junk…oh, sorry, souvenirs and artifacts. Good places where one can find interesting things include Amintiri (20 Gabroveni), Craii de Curtea Veche (14 Covaci), as well as the great Hanul cu Tei (63-65 Lipscani). For traditional items check out the Artizanat on the corner made by Selari and Smardan Street, as well as the one on the ground floor of Unirea Shopping Centre. The Village Museum and the Romanian Peasant Museum also have good folk art items on sale; the Romanian Peasant Museum has possibly the best place for traditional stuff in the city. On Selari Street, close to the crossing with Covaci Street, there is Filatelia Zimbrul Carpatin, a very good shop with old stamps and coins; they also have great postcards.

Don't get ripped off by taxi drivers

by PolyAna

Always ask how mucha trip will cost before actually getting in a taxi. I was charged double what I paid the day before for the same trip, when I didn't. Also, if you know someone that speaks romanian, let them deal with the taxi drivers. As soon as you're identified as a tourist, you can expect to pay a lot more than the locals. Either way, a trip across town will usually be so cheap, by American standards that a lot of precaution is not necessary.
