    Club A: Bucharest's First Club

    by Romanian_Bat Written Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Club A - there you go in

    This was Bucharest's first club, which was born and raised under the caring wing of the University of Architecture. It hosts live (usually rock and folk) concerts on a frequent basis, and it gathers a rather young crowd. When there is no live music, it goes from Phoenix (the most famous Romanian rock band) to Led Zep or Everlast, with (many) intrusions of Abba and other dancing queens and tunes. Not bad, but the crowd could be better. And less of a teenage behaviour would be welcome.

    La Ruine Terrace: A brick for every mic

    by Romanian_Bat Updated Jan 5, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Ruine - B like in bricks and beer

    La Ruine, another summer paradise, is a wide terrace serving mici and beer (again and again) to a wide range of students and people that come on the Lipscani to do the shoppings. Just watch the ruins of Gabroveni Inn, not to fall over you. I mean it. For, after too much beer, things start to move…and move…ooooohhhh…
    Unless you come from Kamchatka or Rejkavik, you have noticed maybe that it is not open in winter.

    Dress Code: Just bring your common sense and wear that smile correctly.

    Opera Nationala Bucuresti: Opera

    Bucharest's Opera House offers very good value. For regular operas ticket prices range from 5.25 lei to 52.5 lei. For special performances, featuring international stars, prices range from 7.35 lei to 63 lei. I bought a good seat for Rigoletto, featuring the great Italian baritone Renato Bruson, for just 26.25 lei, incredibly cheap by international standards. Performances usually start at 18:30 on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. It is also one of the main venues for the George Enescu International Festival. The Opera House building, which was opened in 1954 to replace an earlier one damaged by an earthquake, looks as if it has seen better days. The box office is just inside the main entrance.

    Inside it has a classic opera house interior, with a giant chandelier and rich cream, orange and maroon decor. It's like a slightly smaller version of the Royal Opera House in London.

    The Caf��

    You can find this place right in the center of Bucharest, in a beautiful neighbourhood, at, 18A Nicolae Golescu Street, in a walking distance from the Athenaeum Concert Building, the National Theatre of Bucharest.

    Placed in an old villa, the traditional Romanian architecture surprises everybody who sets foot in this Grand Cafe. Every room has its own charm and gives the possibility to meet friends or business partners in a WiFi Internet environment, with a high level of privacy.

    The bar team probably has the best selection of drinks in town and the kitchen offers elegant, fresh high quality food.

    Planters: Planters

    We had a fun night here.... I'm lucky I found it, my friends got the name confused and told me to meet them at 'Peanuts.' Once I found the place, I was surprised to see bikini-clad dancers on the bar for our entertainment.

    Here's what the entertainment magazine writes about the place:

    Located in the downtown Amzei area, Planter's is another exclusive venue in Bucharest, where many of the local stars choose to spend their nights partying.

    Frequently visited by expats, Planter's has gained its fame with its classic design and good music. Although there is no entry price, the lofty prices make up for it.

    Dress Code: The club does not require a special dress code, but sneakers and sandals are out of the question.

    In the club

    Discos are popping up all over Bucharest, increasingly catering for a wider range of musical tastes. Club Maxx is a popular place with a relaxed vibe and a good mix of tunes, which attracts a studenty crowd.

    I was a bit shocked though when going there as even if it supposed to be a "student venue", the " female dancers" who dance on stage are almost completely naked, thing which is not common in Western Europe!!

    Located in the heart of old Bucharest, the venue is an every day promise of getting pleasure from favourite dishes, fine drinks and cosmopolite atmosphere. Also, Amsterdam is the invitation for doing business and impressing partners with classy lunches or dinners.

    With the original combination of a café, restaurant and club, the 3-storried Amsterdam Grand Café got an intense inner life that inspires any event hosted here. From art exhibitions to quality DJ or live jazz shows, from black tie business mixers to casual meetings or private birthday parties, there is always something in the air that grabs the guests.

    Bucharest is home to Romania's largest recording labels, and is often the residence of Romanian, and more recently Moldovan, musicians. The city's music scene is quite eclectic. Many Romanian rock bands of the 1970s and 1980s, such as Iris and Holograf, continue to be popular, particularly with the middle-aged, while since the 1990s there has been growth in the boy band and hip hop genres. The eclectic pop-rock band Taxi have been gaining international respect, as has Spitalul de Urgenţă's raucous updating of traditional Romanian music. While many discos play manele, a Turkish-influenced type of music that is particularly popular in Bucharest's working class districts, the city has an increasing jazz and blues scene, and, to an extent, eurodance/trance and heavy metal/punk.
    The city's nightlife, particularly its club scene grew significantly in the 1990s, and continues to increase. The city does not have a central nightlife strip, with many entertainment venues dispersed throughout the city centre. One of the city's best known clubs is the Lăptăria Enache, located above the National Theatre, as well as Fire Club and Club A. The 2000s also saw an increasing visibility of Bucharest gay culture, with the opening of the Queen's Club, the first LGBT club in the city, in 2001, the launch of the annual Bucharest GayFest in 2004, and the city's first gay pride parade as part of the 2005 GayFest.

    Chismigu Park: Walking after midnight

    by USMarineRO Written Jun 6, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    OK, it may seem strange, but take a walk through Chismigu Park at night. The park is beautiful by day, but at nighttime, it becomes an enchanted world. Lovers, old and young, sit on park benches, couple stroll the walkways and groups of friends gather to have a drink at the many cafes throughout the park.

    In Chismigu at night, conversations become more intimate, a touch more passionate, and a smile more welcoming.

    Dress Code: dress lightly in the summer

  • Downtown: Nightclub Scene

    by Hudder9 Written Oct 26, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a decent night spot, if you go with friends. The music is good as it plays a wide variety (pop, techno, 80's). On the weekends this place gets packed and becomes extremely hot as there's no air conditioning - I made the mistake of wearing a sweater out and suffered. The week is relatively quiet. The people who go there try very hard to look cool and are not very amenable to meeting new people. I went on a Tuesday and all the pretty girls had scowls on their faces.
