    McNamara's Irish Pub Veliko Tarnovo: Best place to start the night

    by travelamplified Written Nov 20, 2010
    The bar

    This Irish style bar is the best place to start the night. It is expat friendly and has a mix of backpackers, expats and locals. There is free wifi as well. The pub is friendly so you should be able to meet other people and get travel tips for Bulgaria from the staff. Awesome!

    City Pub: A Proper Pub!

    by johngayton Written Feb 23, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pub Frontage

    The City Pub proclaims itself as an Irish bar, although the theming is quite subtle. The decor, with its musical instruments, route 66 memorabilia, gold and platinum discs by big-name rock bands, and the multi-national drinks signage, is more "Hard Rock Cafe" than anything I've ever come across in my Irish travels. Not only that but I didn't see anyone actually ordering Guinness and the main beer sign above the bar is for Heineken.

    What it misses in its attempted "Irishness" however is definitely not to its disadvantage and instead I found it to be as close to a proper pub as I've found in Bulgaria.

    This is the sort of place where you can just drop in for half-a-dozen beers, sitting at the bar (yes it has bar stools - all along and in constant use), and not attract the sort of funny looks I've gotten elsewhere. It does do food with an International pubby theme and a few potato dishes to continue the Irish bit but I was more interested in having a few beers and so didn't read the menu. As well as the aforementioned Heineken there are a selection of other lagers both domestic and imported and the prices are surprisingly reasonable with Zagorka at (if I remember correctly) 1.60 leva.

    Clientele tends to be a bit studenty (and so plenty of pretty girls) and the place has a pleasant buzz. Service is swift and friendly whilst the backgrouund music (which maybe from a juke box) is once again more "Hard Rock Cafe" than Irish but not overloud.

    view from the old town

    Situated along the Stefan Stambolov this is the place to be. Many sorts of vodka, good beer and lots of crazy people. The athmoshere is relaxed, the interior is cozy and the staff is fast. I mostly started the night here.

    I only visited the old town because I wanted a few quiet days to relax and didn't go to any club but on my exploration of the town I saw a few trendy clubs so you have from where to choose. If you want more, go to the new part of town.

    Zodiac Karaoke: a near universial activity!

    by ellielou Written Oct 24, 2006

    After drinking homemade wine and whiskey at dinner, I decided that karaoke would be the perfect way to end a lovely evening. Oh, maybe lovely isn't the right word, but it can be hard not to have fun at karaoke, even when you haven't a clue what they're singing.

    We were told in what direction to head, and we found the place. It was in a basement, made of stone, and the joint was jumpin'. As I've learned from my travels, karaoke takes many forums, a Velinko Tarnovo karoake seems to be taking the microphone and singing from your seat, or roaming around the dancefloor. And, then, if you want, passing it on. Although there's a screen, there are no words. There is no KJ (karaoke DJ) announcing who is the next one up, and what they're singing. People just sing. And, they just dance. In this case, some dancing on the tables. And, of course, they drink.

    Very fun. Very exhausting. Very hangover inducing.

    "Dublin" Irish Bar: Busy Student Bar

    by scubaphoto Written Nov 29, 2004

    Based loosely on the worn theme of Irish Bar this is nonetheless a great place for people watching during the day as the bar has large window facing onto the main square. It has local Bulgarian beers on tap for 0.5 litres or a "pint" as we say in Ireland costing about $0.60.

    Some of the staff spoke English and were very helpful in explaining the menu to me. They serve typical pub food after 5pm each night. It gets pretty busy here in the evening and it has a good atmosphere.

    Although those looking for a tradition Irish Pub with an Irish owner, well you won't find it here. Also most of the pictures on the wall were of central London "strange" not Ireland.

    This is without any doubt the best bar in town, which plays a mix of metal and rock music. The beer is good and cheap (don't forget to drink the ever-tasty local Boilarka beer) and the folks are friendly!!

    This is a spot where in a hot summer hight you can sit outside and watch all the people going by on the main street and enjoy the company of many young students. It is especially interesting because this spot is in front ot the Applied Arts Faculty of the Veliko Turnovo University.
