Sofia Nightlife, Bulgaria

Sofia, Nightlife – Clubs and Discos

When it comes to having fun, the Sofians have no limits. You can feel the vibration of Sofia Nightlife no matter what street you are wandering on. The locals love to dance, chat, drink and eat and have the time of their life, when the sun goes to sleep.

If you want to get directly into the atmosphere of Sofia Nightlife, then you should definitely start your journey with Vitosha Boulevard. The area is crowded with people enjoying a beer or wine, talking about their everyday life and making new acquaintances.

When the clock strikes midnight, you should know that it is high time to head towards a disco. Caramba is the perfect place for those who adore moving their hips on Latin music, whereas Escape Club offers a wide variety of techno music. The drinks in there are quite expensive, but the exciting atmosphere makes everything worthwhile. There is no dressing code imposed and there are special places for those who want to smoke.

If you are more into attending a great show, than actually taking part in it, then you should definitely see Backstage, the place where the best bands in Sofia perform. Swinging Hall cannot afford the luxury to invite the most famous Sofian singers, but the atmosphere there is extraordinary.

Sofia, Nightlife - Eating Out

In Sofia, the number of outdoor restaurants is quite the same with the indoor ones. So, if you want to enjoy a delicious meal on a charming street that will take you hundreds of years ago, then you are in the right place to do that. The Windmill Restaurant is a unique place, with people serving you dressed in medieval costumes and a mesmerizing décor. The food is really fresh and tasty and the prices are acceptable.

Xotea Restaurant is another great place where you can enjoy a great dish in an extraordinary atmosphere. This place is located on Mount Vitosha, so the air is clean, and the silence of nature will help you forget about the worries of your day to day life. The staff is really friendly and helpful and will do its best to make your stay there perfect. For those who love pizza, you can find Background Pizzeria right in downtown. You can order any type of pizza you wish, as you will be the one who chooses the ingredients.
