    Cluj and Sighisoara

    by ger4444 Written Oct 14, 2014

    In Cluj, you will find, in the pedestrian, area south-west of Unirii square, at Inocent Mica Klein street some great bars and terraces. The most beautifll is the Bulgakov bar. It has a courtyard with wooden tables and brick walls, with old wooden furniture. Service is quick and it is inexpensive. You should not miss this place, it is popular amongst locals and it has a great atmosphere.
    In Sighisoara, my favourite place was the bar/restaurant located at Scolii street, nexto the stairway that leads you to a church, located at a hill, you have a great view over Scolii street. Friendly staff, great views and inexpensive.
    Another spot, not to miss, is near Hermann Oberth square, outside the citadel.You will find yourself lounging with a Cuic beer, hanging around with Sighisoara locals, and enjoying the cozy atmosphere.

    Sibiu has 3 squares where nightlife can be found. At Mare square, you will find many pavement terraces. However, they close at 0.00. And it’s a bit more expensive. However, sitting there with a glass of Ursus beer, seeing the lights at night, the beautifull architecture; it’s a must-do. Party people can continue after 0.00, by exploring cellar pubs at Nicolas Bal cescu street.
    At Mica square, especially at Liars’ bridge, nightlife is even more exciting. Pavement terraces everywhere, a youth hostel with many international tourists, chairs and tables upon the iron brdge, with magnificent views, this is the place to be, besides, bars are open here till 3 am in weekends. I can recooment casa Luxembourg for a great menu when it comes to beer-drinking.

    Brasov central square, piata Sfatului has many restaurants and bars with pavement terraces, very popular amongst tourists. Yet, quite expensive. Republic street is alo overcrowed by bars, restuarants and terraces, and the street has a pleasant atmosphere. Nice for having beers and people watching. In this street you will find the bar called “Festival 39.” It is a great place to have drinks at the terrace or inside. Inside it is art-deco style, lounging leather banks, atmosphere lights and a super sized bar. Very cozy place to get your hands on a Romanian beer or a Tuica.
    As for early evening, if you like to get some drinks at a special location, go to the citadel, north of the centre, climbing up the path to the citadel, at Nicolae Iorga street. Great views at the Citadel and local beer.

    If you are looking for great nightlife, he old town is the place to be. Old town (“Lipscani”) can be find on the Eastern side of Victoria street and the northern side of Unirii square. Nightife can be found in Selar street, Covaci street; full of bars, pavement terraces, loud music, probably the most crowded party place in Romania. However, if you like to have a drink at a bard with great views, go to B dul Unirri, where the people’s house is located. At the boulevard between Unirii sqaue and the People’s house, you find lounge bar, just opposed to the magastructure government building. Great vieuws, great atmosphere.

    The Platinum Casino in Bucharest: Spend your evening in the casino

    by hopang Updated Jul 7, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Platinum Casino is probably the best and the largest casino in the city of Bucharest right now. We went to this casino almost every evening just to pass time. Admission fee to the casino is just 20.00 lei per adult. Registration is required by law and you need to bring along your passport to get it registered the first time you enter the casino. Your photo will also be taken at the reception.

    The Platinum Casino has two levels, i.e. the ground level and the upper floor. It has a separate entrance from Hotel Radisson SAS, the adjacent property. Lots of table games (more than 20 table games) are available in the casino especially Black Jack, Poker and American Roulette. We were interested only in the slot machines which they have approximately 100 of them. Many of them are quite modern, advance and sophisticated.

    The casino opens round the clock and buffet is complimentary with free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. To be honest the food and drinks are really good and the services by the waitresses are impeccable. Just help yourself to the free food and drinks while you are there on your vacation. You may also e-mail to the following address for more information about the casino:-

    Dress Code: No proper dress code is required. Smart casual is sufficient.

    Ateneul Roman in Bucharest: Watching concerts at Romanian Athenaeum, Bucharest

    by hopang Updated Jul 5, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Roman Athenaeum (Ateneul Roman in Romanian) is really a beautiful concert hall, the pride of Bucharest and probably that of the country as well. It is certainly one of the most beautiful concert halls we have ever seen in Europe, especially its interior. The interior of the concert hall is great. A long fresco (depicted on our fourth photograph) designed by Costin Petrescu measuring some 75 metres is clearly visible in details with your naked eyes. We wish we could upload more photographs of the beautiful interior here, but we left them at our travelogues.

    Roman Athenaeum opened to the public in the late 19th century. It is today owned by Romanian Philharmonic Society and is home to George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra consisting of approximately 35 members. The main building of the concert hall (depicted on our second photograph) was designed by French architect Albert Galleron in neo-classical style and is a famous landmark of the city. The concert hall has a capacity for approximately 800 spectators. It is not a very big concert hall but is certainly one of the finest. Spectators have a very good view of the performers on the stage wherever they sit in the concert hall.

    For those who are not interested in concerts, you can take a guided tour during the day to visit the interior of the concert hall, certainly not to be missed while in Bucharest. Concerts usually begin at 7.00 p.m. in the evening, but not nightly. Please refer to the website below for more details.

    Dress Code: Smart casual

    Grand Cafe Galleron: A grown up bar

    by mykitten Written Apr 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grand Cafe Galleron is somewhere I keep returning to when in Bucharest. Quiet but not too quiet, this is a peaceful place to relax over a coffee or a G&T and people watch. Later on the music gets louder - but not too loud, enough to make you tap your toes and think about going out but low enough to chat.

    Specialist teas and smoothies made freshly are a speciality. The staff are friendly and get to know you quickly. The surroundings are lovely and there are areas where you can hideaway for more private chats.

    Dress Code: No dress code apparent

    by mr.denmark Written Sep 5, 2007

    Twice: BUCHAREST - Twice

    by ThiagoRamos Written Mar 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The girls from the staff at Elvis Villa recommended this place. It was a saturday night. We arrived around midnight and the place was crowded. Not many tourists/foreigners in the house. It looked like a regular club but...

    Many girls were dancing on the balconies and tables. The DJ started saying something in romanian and the girls took off their shirts during the song. Those who didn't... had to get down from the balconies/tables. On the next song, the DJ says something else and the girls took off their pants/skirts!!! We couldn't believe that!!! But the show was only starting... on the next song, the girls took off their bras!!! After all these preliminary stages, only 2 girls remained dancing on the main balcony. A few more words from the DJ and during the next song... we couldn't believe... the girls were completely naked on the balcony!!!

    I don't know how often does this happen there, but that was something...

    After telling you the story above, I don't know if this still matters, but the drinks are cheap and the place is really nice... hahaha

    In the suburb of Racadav, bears come to the rubbish tip to rummage for food in the bins during the late evening and night. Totally unperturbed by passing humans, car headlights and cameral flashes, they go about the daily rituals.

    La Cucaracha: Beach Bar

    by Nobbe Updated Mar 4, 2004

    The best place for nightlife I visited in Mamaia was a place called La Cucaracha. The place itself is next to the beach, and during the weekends when this place is really crowded you can dance on the beach.

    Dress Code: Come as you are.

    The center is where its at

    by MikeyAndLaura Updated Jan 6, 2004

    As far as Bucuresti is concerned, most of the young party crowd hangs out in the old part of the city, in the center near the University.

    Just walk down the small cobblestone streets and you'll hear music coming out of many buildings. Sometimes there's crowds of kids hanging outside a club.

    A book guide might also help because I've been to a few really cool bars that were in the basement of an old building and I would have never found it if I wasn't with friends that already knew.

    Basically most dress codes are casual, in general Romanian people don't get too dressed up to go out like people would in Vegas or NY. It's a lot more basic here and it's lots of fun.

    Strada Blanari-- nightlife is around here
