  • The New Sofia Pub Crawl: The New Sofia Pub Crawl

    by Kristianmitov Written Nov 12, 2012

    The New Sofia Pub Crawl is the night walk around Sofia’s hidden and unique bars. This event is not for those looking for loud and smoky rooms; instead, you will hear different stories about the places visited and meet other tourists from all over the world. Therefore, a nice international evening with a lot of chatting is guaranteed. The event costs 20 lv. and includes some free drinks at most of the places. Every location has its own style and is worth visiting it. You would not find these places on your own or just would’t dare to go in.

    by Riannaaa Written Jun 23, 2012

    We had the most amazing time in Sofia, while visiting the Rock 'n Roll bar, situated on the Dyakon Ignity.
    It is a fun bar, with good music! Not only rockmusic but every kind of music.
    Last summer there were some travallers but also the real Bulgarian Deal.
    Laughed our asses of! And the toilet is beautiful and the club in fancy, new, hip and clean.
    Great place! Need to visit if you go to Sofia!

    Chevermeto: Live Bulgarian music

    by Penelope4 Updated Jun 17, 2011

    To watch traditional dancing (with costumes and live accompaniment), you have to be at the restaurant at 8:30 p.m. After the performances, comes the singers who will invite you to the dancefloor with their music. A shame that I came past 9 pm so I did not get to see the traditional dance.

    The foods and drinks don't cost much although the place is ideally for tourists. Even my Bulgarian colleague knows that this place is as not expensive as the others. Nevertheless, you'll feel at ease in this place because the waiters and the performers are quite okay.

    Dress Code: Casual will do but a more formal attire is suitable as well.

  • Camino: Piano Bar "Camino"

    by julia79 Updated Jan 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, I can frankly say this is the best place in Sofia I had fun. No joking! It is not easy to walk in, because it's very hard to find a table. You can do it only if you have a reservation, so if you didn't take care of that-don't even think about going there.
    The interior is amazing-all the walls are covered with pictures of famous musicians (over 250 portraits, ordered specially for "Camino") and instruments. The lighting and synchronization are really professional. You can smoke over 20 kinds of cigars Cohiba there.
    The live music is very good-I can say this is the music I like. You can listen to whatever you want there-Russian music, Bulgarian music (really the good Bulgarian music), retro music, rock music, jazz... The musicians are very good and I was astonished by their talent.
    Well, as you maybe guess, you'll have to pay much there, so be prepared!
    Here you can see a part of the program-Stefan Iltchev is singing "Camino"

    Dress Code: Just be good looking.

  • Mediterrani: Bar Mediterrani

    by julia79 Written Jan 17, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is just a bar, but really a nice one. I enjoy going there since it was situated near "Slaveikov" Sq., but the bar changed its location. Well, it is in the ideal center of the city again, near the night club "Briliantin", so you can always have a chance to go there for a drink. Just do it! There is a great variety of drinks and you can always ask the bartender to make the cocktail you want. The music is very nice, the staff is really great and the service is also very good:)

    Dress Code: No dress code.

And you pay only 4-5 leva (3 EURO) for the live music.

    Yalta: Yalta Club

    by ChristinaNest Written Jan 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is where we celebrated the new year, after going to the open-air concert, losing some money at the newar-by London Casino. The gues DJ was Sandy Rivera, and what a DJ! We shook our @sses off!
    Yalta was one of the first dance club in the early 90's. It was closed for several years until it was redone and opened in 2005. If you're into house and techno, this is the place, although there are some oldies nights. For details of the current programme and guest dj's, check
    The entrance fee varies depending on the event, the New Year's party 2006/07 was 60 lv (30 euro). The previous year it was 100 lv (50 euro) but it had drinks and snacks included. Normally, entrance is 15-20 lv.

    Dress Code: cool

    A very blurred Sandy Rivera...

    Sin City: Party Balkan style

    by Gido Written Sep 19, 2006

    This is a crazy place. with a lot of action going on. There's a main stage with singers and dancers and most people sit around it next to long tables. They don't sit for long though as virtually everybody is dancing. The music is definitely Eastern European but the vibe is good. It is kind of hard to communicate with the locals. Only minus is the staff. Not very polite at all. But hey, who cares about them!

    Dress Code: People tend to dress up, but we got in with jeans and sneakers.

    Salsa Plus: Salsa

    by Jasen71 Written Jul 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have always liked to have thought of myself as a dab hand at dancing, and that with enough peer pressure I will venture onto the dance floor... Well perhaps on more sober moment I'd think twice. The Salsa Plus Club is great fun with all types of salsa and south american music being played and people dancing at all levels.

    Dress Code: No dress code
