Revenge: always a party going on
this place is chill and unpretentious but what i liked most about it is that i went on a monday and there was dancing. i had tried several other places but they were closed. i talked to a bartender and he said there are parties every day, even on weekdays. monday way fun so i returned the following saturday and sure enough the atmosphere was off the hook. so even if your trip here doesn't cover the weekend you can drop by on a weekday and have lots of fun. also the drinks are startlingly cheap (even for bucharest), something like 1.5 euros for a long drink.
Dress Code: there was no dresscode that i could see. just a few girls were in heels but mostly everyone was in jeans and sneakers. very relaxed

Restaurant/Club Salt: Fancy nightlife
Wanna go to a fancy place? Salt Restaurant at Parc is just all that. At daytime it's an open-air restaurant but at night it's a club where you certainly need to dress to impress. There are many lounge area's, some on a glassplate with water flowing beneath you.. and yes there is a pool.
Though be advised, it's a relatively expensive place.
The old-town used to be a sad collection of dillapidated buildings and parked cars on narrow streets... But now it's a proud collection of bustling nightlife, it contains several blocks of restaurants, bars and excellent nightlife. If you want to go out on a weekday. this is the place to be , it's busy every night (at least when it's warm outside) and there are bars suitable for everyone. Ranging from ultra-trendy to classic.

Freddo: Cool Place in Old Town for Drinks or Food
We stopped in here for a cool drink on a hot day. As with most of the restaurants and bars, there is a major issue with smoke - seems like everyone in Romania smokes. We moved two times before finding a spot by the fan which seems to help disburse the smoke. Freddo is a cool place - they have a "chandelier" made up of green beer bottles, and a retractable roof. I saw several people eating the pizza and it looked really good. Our drinks were a little more expensive than at other places (7 RON for a Coke, 16 RON for a non-alcoholic watermelon cooler), but it was a great place for people watching and for relaxing our legs after a long, hot day of walking in the old town.

Club A: Students, cheap beer, laid-back athmosphere
This place is a legend as they e.g. sell the cheapest Red Bull vodka in the world. ´
If you like local, unpretentious, student crowd getting down to classic songs that you won’t have heard for ages, this is the one place in town you can be guaranteed to find it, every night of the week. Live music on most weekend nights.
Club A is open as follows: 10:00-05:00, Sunday: 21:00-05:00, Friday: 10:00-06:00, Saturday: 21:00-06:00
Dress Code: No dress code. Go as you are. We saw everything from thin and short summer clothing to jeans to practically anything.

Club Piranha: Relax in a special atmosphere
Is a special club,because is more than a club when you can relax,eat and drink.
During the summer you can see a little pond with exotic fish and some ducks(yes, they have animals and you can see them :) ). They also have some parrots, an iguana,two dogs and pigeons. It feels like you're in someone's back yard, and everything is green and made from wood around you, and the music is lovely.
Because we went outside,i don't have any picture with the interior of the club, but i hope you will enjoy the pictures that i have posted.
About the prices: food and drinks are not very expensive here.
Dress Code: You can dress as you want: sport or elegant, is your choice.
Lucky Love: An exquisite experience
Don't miss one of the most high class intimate night club, Lucky Love. It has everything plus very decent, beautiful, sexy, smart, nice dressed hostess. A guy entered and he just had a beer, the girls were attentive to him. Usually, in nightclubs, money talks. If you don't have something expensive, you don't get the attention. I asked "how come you are so polite with this fellow?", the girls just laugh and made a very funny joke. This place is very decent, I tell you. You are not allowed to smoke in the lounge hall but there is a smoking table near the entrance. I find this very pleasing since usually... non smokers have a really hard time in Romanian clubs or nightclubs. They don't have much advertising but I guess I was lucky that I found it. They have experienced poll dancers, I enjoyed a 40 min show! Never happened elsewhere.
Dress Code: Well, elegant dress should do. I guess jeans & shirt is OK but sportswear, sneakers is out of discussion.

Mojo Club: My personal favourite:
Mojo Club is my favourite club in Bucharest for a number of reasons.
First of all, it's a live music club: Mojo Band plays there every Friday and Saturday and, unlike most cover bands around town, they focus on alternative rock and brit-pop. Their play list includes: Summer of '69, Walking in Memphis, Don't stop me now, You give love a bad name.
Secondly, the palce is backed by a concept: Brit Style. The club has an Acoustic Lounge (opened for karaoke every day from 10 PM) and a Brit Room (where all the fun takes place). They also have a nice terrace. My favourite detail: the menus have the shape of a guitar.
Thirdly, I love the service. Two of the membes of the band are also among the owners of the place (one of them, the vocalist, is British) so they mingle throughout the night, smile a lot and generally make you feel good.
Dress Code: Nothing special.
Peasant's Museum Club: Live music, good food, unconventional setting
It was on a Wednesday evening that we decided we should attend a beginner's Tango lesson at the Peasant's Museum Club. We were expecting it to be something more formal but it proved to be something close to a friends gathering.
The night began with a live tango concert (I must say the guitarists' hands moved as if they were guided by God) and together with a glass of wine the night began.
This place holds weekly live concerts on Fridays and Saturdays with some of the best singers and bands around Romania. It is also home to several cultural events and cinema evenings. You can serve a light meal (some salads at about 4-5 euros or cold plates) or just enjoy a drink in a pub furnished with handmade and hand painted chairs and tables.
During summer, the terrace is also opened and it' a favourite place for byking fans around the city.
Dress Code: Whatever makes you feel comfortable

Old city bar: Beer is flowing. . . .
In the Old City Bar you can meet young ladies who make promotion for the beers! Three pints for the price of two! These here (picture 2) were promoting for the local Ciuc beer, but other were promoting foreign beers too.
A young atmosphere, “beery” music (Bavarian, Austrian, yodling and that sort of musics), efficient bar keepers. . . . There are lots of students in the place and I guess that the music is different after “happy hours”, more rocky and modern. Before looking for a restaurant in the Lipscani area, it is the sort of place one may enjoy with the local beer which is quite good, and has an interesting bitter taste.
They have big TV screens for sport events;

Azzurro.: Perfect place to drink and relax.
Well, you can both sit outside and inside. I preferred to stay outside and just enjoy my red wine. I liked this place a lot, so if I go back to Bucharest and if I will be very close to this restaurant, I will definatelly go there. Inside it is also very nice and and during the football season you can sit here and watch football at the same time you eat. They have very traditional Romanian food here and it is very delicious. But the negtaive thing is that, they dont serve you any Romanian beer here.
Dress Code: Casual.

Offside Pub: Popular pub with live sports action
Offside Pub is a popular sports bar, located on Strada Gabroveni, just a few metres from the pedestrianised Strada Lipscani in the heart of Bucharest.
My friend and I visited Offside Pub one Saturday afternoon during our visit to the city in March 2008, and would recommend it to anybody wanting to catch the latest sporting action while in Bucharest. At the time of our visit, a large screen was showing live English Premiership football (Bolton vs Man City), while other screens were showing live football games from France and Germany. A small screen behind the bar was showing live cycling on Eurosport and yet another screen was showing the latest football results from around the world via teletext. You won’t even have to miss any of the action when you need to visit the gents’ room as a TV set is mounted above the urinals! I'm not sure if you ladies will be quite so lucky! ;-)
I believe that this is a popular hangout for visiting football fans when their club or country is playing a fixture in the Romanian capital, and they’ll no doubt feel right at home in the surroundings. A variety of football memorabilia (framed shirts, signed photographs, autographed footballs…) adorn the walls and there is a table-football table to keep the punters occupied when there is no action to watch on the TVs.
The beer selection isn’t particularly extensive (only Bergenbier, Stella Artois and Heineken were available on draught), although there is a wider selection of higher priced imported bottled beers. There is a huge selection of spirits, cocktails, wines and soft drinks, and a reasonable selection of pub food (pizzas, sandwiches, salads, spaghetti…).
We were paying 4.5 Lei (a little under 1 GBP) for 500ml draught Bergenbier at the time of our visit.
In the evening, we noticed that many of the tables were reserved. We left before the crowds arrived – but I guess they were booking up tables in order to watch the live Steaua Bucharest game that was being screened that evening.
A great place to watch live football in the heart of Bucharest!
Queens: Gay disco
Like Gay clubs the world over, this place has become tremendously popular with a non-Gay set fed up with the meat market atmosphere at so many of the city’s other locations.
The music is not too varied, and you can tell the DJ's favorites, because you may hear the same song an hour later. Entry costs 20.00 lei, but that includes 10.00 lei worth of drinks at the bar. That equals about one drink, so don't get too excited.
The dance floor is kinda small, as the whole bar is really just one big room. Seating is located on a raised platform around the dance floor and a VIP section located under the stairs (how exclusive - LOL). Only one bar at the end of the dance floor so it can take some time to get a drink. The female bartender never smiled, but at least she always got the drink order right.
A drag show on Saturday night. And it seemed that all of the performers did Madonna songs. Although the performer that did the homage to Ukraine's Eurovision 2007 entry was great fun. A couple of hot go-go boys dance on the speakers and are a show all of their own. No one seemed to even acknowledge them though, and I didn't notice anyone tipping them.
Dance floor gets crowded and poor ventilation will cause us non-smokers to feel sick without frequent trips outside to breathe, If smoke bothers you I suggest you also bring eye drops (my eyes were burning after a few hours of having smoke blown in my face).
Bucharest police were parked out front on the nights I visited, but they just looked bored. No trouble at all. And one smiled at me when I was leaving with a friend. ;)
Dress Code: Wear your best, but be prepared to sweat.

Coyote Cafe: Great Club
Definitely the highlight of my time in Bucharest. This club is open Thursday thru Saturday and has live music on Friday and Saturday night. The atmosphere is very friendly as is the crowd. I'd only plan a trip back to Bucharest if it would be over the weekend to allow me more time in this bar.
