    Malina Cocktail House: Cocktails in Chisinau

    Technicolor Cocktails at Malina Cocktail House

    Located on the edge of Chisinau's busiest park, Malina Cocktail House is a chic little bar and cafe with stylish seating, great people-watching and an expansive cocktail list... in Russian! Yes, while most eateries in Chisinau at least write their menus in Moldovan, the purists at Malina presented me with an entirely Russian menu (see attached photo). So I left my order in the hands of the English-aware waiter, and a few minutes later I got a technicolor drink of a totally unidentifiable flavor that almost knocked me onto my butt after the first sip... perfect! If you like drinking questionable Russian beverages while Europop blares and gangsters make deals at the table next to you, Malina Cocktail House should be your first stop in Chisinau!

    THE BEER HOUSE: IT'S ALL IN THE NAME

    by DAO Updated Nov 17, 2010

    The Beer House is somewhat of an institution in Chisinãu. It is essentially a Micro Brewery that started serving food and grew into a restaurant. Heavy on German cuisine influences you can enjoy delicacies like rabbit with a cognac sauce. They have menus in English to aide translation and plenty of beers on tap to keep you happy. The interiors have all been redone and one room looks like a cave inside. The main room looks like a street in a picturesque German town. I found the staff nice and inviting. I didn’t get a chance to eat here, but did stop for a dark beer. Top notch.

    It’s located between the National Hotel and the Town Centre, just up the hill from the train station. That’s my way of saying you have no excuse for not stopping in for at least 1-3 beer(s).

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chisinau's nightlife is very lively and one of the main draws to the city. However many locals do not have the means to enjoy it, often many women are accompanied by better off guys.
    Popular places include the Black Elephant, Star Track and Millennium

    New York Bowling Club: Billard & Bowling

    by fbieger Written May 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    New York is a very good place for Bowling and Billard. The Bowling range is well equipped and later in the night it get's a kind of disco UV light illumination. Which makes the bowling alleys looking like a runway.

    It also includes a restaurant

    Prices are:

    1 hour bowling: 225 Lei (about 15 EUR)

    1 game of pool billard: 15 Lei (about 1 EUR)

    Dress Code: Officially none, but it's quite a plush place with sometimes big limos waiting outside, so it's no bad idea to look good

    Soho: Biggest in Chisinau

    by Lion_Beat Updated Aug 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Soho

    The biggest nightclub in Moldova, and probably the best one.
    Who would of thought that in first weeks after it's opening people will stay outside for hours wiling to enter the club!
    In Turkish newspapers I even seen commercials describing this club as the biggest in Eastern Europe!

    Typical London Club atmospher as people say, never been to London, so... can't argue with that... :)

    From its very opening on 14th December 2001, Soho-club became the center of Chisinau club life.
    The main audience of the Soho night-club is youth, but middle-aged are welcome too.
    Besides the noisy discotheques various shows, special parties, live concerts, presentations and teenage parties are held at the club.

    The Cerni Slon is arguably the best bar in the city, and certainly the only one of its kind, with cool stuff happening every evening. The black cellar complex is good value for money, admission costing between 15-25 lei, depending on what’s on.

    Black Elephant, entrance

    This is a famous music club. The best of the local ensembles, as well as international ones give concerts here.
    I had the chance to listen to trio Trigon there twice already!
    The place is not very big, and has a club atmosphere.
    To make sure, you find a place, perhaps you should make a reservation.

    Hai Zdob si Zdub -- Bate doba de la Prut!

    The central block of the city, in front of the Parlaimentary Office Building, is the stage for some of the most spectacular music festivals in the former Soviet Union! Zdob si Zdub (Zdubii) is a crowd favorite. You can catch an act almost any week in the summer somewhere in town doing an outdoor act. Look around.

    The Black Elefant Club: Zdubii Bateti Tare!

    by PashenkaMD Written Nov 13, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is near the National Library. It is easy to hear about. Just say "Black Eleph(f)ant" and fingers will start pointing. It is the best place for a beer, vodka, cigarettes and EXCELLENT live music. This is like a college coffee house in the United States, only with a lot more smoke and a lot more alcohol. It is okay for the sober people, too. I don't drink and I thouroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

    Dress Code: come as you are...though the Russian version of the "Goth" look is predominant.

    The Black Elephant Club: The Black Elephant Club

    by Mr_Furious Written Sep 8, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a nice underground cellar which has live performances by various music bands almost every night. The bar is nice also. A cover must be paid anytime you enter. The prices depends on what activities are taking place that night, so check out beforehand (around 20Lei, 1.5 euro). During the daytime you have to pay 10 Lei but you get 2 coupons that are good for a beer (0.5L, costs you 5Lei).

    Dress Code: Nothing particular, I got in with my typical backpacking-pants (baggy pants with zipper to convert it into shorts)
