Vilnius Nightlife, Lithuania

The Baltic States, especially their capitals, Vilnius, Tallinn and Riga are famous holiday destinations nowadays. Vilnius, the picturesque capital of Lithuania, is a multinational and multicultural city with a rich history, interesting traditions and a lively nightlife. Vilnius is so diverse that any tourist is sure to find what they are looking for. The charming cafes and enticing restaurants are perfect for some relaxation, but there are also enough pubs and nightclubs of various styles and sizes to satisfy even the most enthusiastic reveler. This Vilnius Nightlife Guide will point out some places that you absolutely shouldn't miss when visiting this charming city.

Vilnius Nightlife - Eating Out

Vilnius is attracting millions of visitors every year, and in addition to that, it is also a university city teeming with young people. It is no big surprise that there are restaurants catering for every kind of budget. Whether you are a backpacker, or a business class traveler, you will surely find a restaurant that will suit both your tastes and your budget. Čili Pica is a budget restaurant chain where you can find tasty and affordable pizzas, salads and other type of fast food. The chain also has a another version, the Čili Kaimas, that keeps in line with the company’s style and prices, but offers a range of traditional foods.

Zemaiciai can be considered a mid-range restaurant in Western Europe, although it is a bit on the pricey side for Lithuanian standards. It is located in the city centre, close to the city’s major hotels, and it has a delightful terrace where you can dine while enjoying the bustle of the city. The restaurant’s menu contains a sizeable list of traditional dishes, as well as some international cuisine. If you’re looking for something unusual, this Vilnius Nightlife Guide recommends that you visit the underground catacombs that have been integrated into the restaurant.

Rita’s Tavern is another great place for local cuisine. The restaurant offers a homely atmosphere during the week, but you should expect some bustle at weekends when the restaurant hosts folk-dance nights.

Vilnius Nightlife - Pubs and Nightclubs

Thanks to its large student population, there are many places in Vilnius where you can enjoy a few drinks and some good music. Avilys is a pub with a long tradition, and it is also the only beer brewery in the city. The pub’s beer brand is cheap and quite delicious. In addition to beer and music, you can try some of the pub’s other specialties, such as beer soup, beer truffles and traditional Lithuanian beer snacks.

Brodvejus is a great place for live music and cheap drinks. It is a favorite venue among the local indie bands, and the student crowd accounts for the club’s lively atmosphere. Skonis ir Kvapas is a stylish teahouse/restaurant where you can either enjoy a relaxing and delicious cup of tea served in handmade cups, or try one of the fancy salads on the menu. If rowdy crowds are not your preferred kind of entertainment, you would probably enjoy Tip Zoro, an elegant lounge where you can drink some of the best cocktails in the city.
