Irish pubs in Bucharest? Any views?

by Drugness

Hi
I'm interested in hearing about these pubs? Are they overly expensive? Good? Do any of them attract a slightly dodgy clientelle? I can't remember where i heard it but i thought one of the 3 irish pubs in Bucharest attracted girls who were on the game. Although i have a slight feeling i'm mixing this up with an American bar who's name i can't recall... i'd be happy to be proved completely wrong on this point though! :)

Thanks

DG

Re: Irish pubs in Bucharest? Any views?

Hi.

Two of the most famous Irish Pubs in Bucharest are situated in Piata Unirii(very central) and there used to be one on Titulescu Blvd. (close to center, close to Piata Victoriei).

The one in Piata Unirii is called The Harp.

There are also a lot of Romanian pubs very much alike to the Irish Pubs, as they were inspired by them.

There are also a fair amount of place where you could buy a Guiness or Red Beer.


Happy travelling

Travel Tips for Bucharest

Taken by surprise

by gosiaPL

A pic from the Village Museum. If I remember well, this interior was in one of the houses from the area close to the border with Bulgaria.

I really got a kick out of this - the little table and stools were for the whole family, not just for kids. It must have been customary for that region for I saw a similar type of furniture in another house too. Check more pics in my Village Museum travelogues.

The essentials

by mvtouring

In some countries, it may actually be possible to get medicines over-the-counter at pharmacies, but it’s better to bring your own to be sure. Keep these in your carry-on luggage as well. A note from your doctor is also a good idea, to protect yourself from any questions as you go through customs Adaptors and Chargers for Electronics
If you carry a digital camera or cell phone, you’ll want to be able to recharge it. Having a charger won’t be enough because American-style plugs won't work in Eastern European electrical outlets, so make sure you purchase a power converter/adaptor. The proper device will reduce the 220 volts to a safe 110 volts for your appliances, as well as use a plug with two round prongs to fit into the sockets of your hotel room. Insect Repellent
If you are going to be hiking, bring insect repellent. Mosquito populations can be quite dense in forested areas. You also need to be wary of ticks. Products are available, but you may feel more confident with your own DEET-containing chemical spray or lotion. Documents
Don’t forget them. Passport, appropriate visas, credit cards, money to exchange—leave them behind and you’re out of luck. Put all of these items safely in traveler’s wallet either on your person or in your carry-on luggage so they go where you go. I personally scan my passport, insurance document, air ticket and any hotel reservations/vouchers and then send it via e-mail to my yahoo adress where I can make a copy quickly in case of emergency. As a second back-up a Full-Color Photo Copy of Your Passport and Visas If your original passport goes missing, a good-quality photo copy can serve you well. Store these separately from your other documents so that if your wallet gets lost, you’ll still have your color copies.

Contacts and/or Glasses
If you have impaired vision, bring all the necessary supplies. You may have difficulty finding the products you need when you get to Eastern Europe.

Forgotten something?? Dont pay too much!

by lchelle

You forgot to pack something which you realise you desperately need. Or you run out of something. Dont pay too much.

Steer clear of shops on the main drags. Youll be digging deeper into your pockets than is ever necessary! There are several markets which run in Bucharest where you can save a lot of $$$$!!!

There is a particularly good one at Bucur Obor which sells everything from fruit and veg, to clothes, bags, music, school books and personal hygiene products.

Very popular club

by deeper_blue about Club Maxx

Club Maxx is a huge disco popular with the local students. Don't get seperated from your friends you will struggle to find them again. Be prepared for the raunchy shows on the podiums, male and female!

Gara de Nord

by yumyum

This old fashioned railway station is worth seeing by itself. It was inaugurated on 25th September 1872.

It is full of kiosks but none of them sell “In your Pocket” guides or postcards. There are left luggage facilities, an information, a small supermarket and snack places including the big M. In one hall, there was a printed timetable hanging there but it was out of date. You should take a look at the big board by the information. Don’t expect the ticket vendors to speak anything other than Romanian (at least at the domestic windows) which are in a separate hall. But all the young people speak English and we were happily helped.
