Brasov Nightlife, Romania

With the green mountains forming a natural fortress around Brasov, and a much cleaner air then in Bucharest or Constanta, most tourists who arrive here will be tempted to believe that Brasov nightlife is typical for a quiet little mountain town. Well, they couldn’t be more wrong: as an important academic centre and the main access route towards Prahova Valley touristic area, Brasov is ready to welcome the most pretentious traveler.

Brasov Nightlife – Restaurants

The restaurants in Brasov reflect the kind of multiculturalism and originality that characterized this city in the heart of Romania from immemorial times. Here you can try all the tasty traditional dished that foreigners fall in love with: ‘sarmale’, ‘mamaliga’, ‘ciorba de burta’, ‘frigarui’ and the famous smoked cheese. There are plenty of traditional restaurants to choose from: Sergiana, Ceasu Rau, Taverna Lupilor, Casa Romaneasca. German and Hungarian cuisines are also well represented in Brasov: Casa Ungureasca, Keller’s Steak House, Casa Hirscher, Butoiul Sasului. If you have a taste for more exotic dishes or for some plain old pizza and pastas, all in a very exquisite atmosphere, you can try one of the following: Old Europe, Civic Center, Abo Nawas, Ambasador, Aquarium, Tratorria del Chianti.

Brasov Nightlife – Bars and Clubs

It’s quite hard to imagine you will not find something to match your tastes and expectations between the numerous bars and pubs in Brasov. From the fancy lounge to the old west saloon, from expensive cocktails to a refreshing draft beer, you can experience a whole world just by adventuring yourself into Brasov nightlife. Concentrated around Brasov’s historic centre, the cafes, bars and pubs will strike you with the most unusual names: Bellagio, ‘The But’ Pub, Captain Nemo, For Sale Pub, Panda Espresso, Rasta Bar Jamaica, Sayuri Lounge. After some drinks and some new acquaintances, you can end your night out in the rhythm of music – many bars have dance nights, but there are several clubs that only function as discotheques: Hush Hush, Fashion Club, Club Harley, Blue Sensation Club, Caliente.

Brasov Nightlife – Culture and Entertainment

There are two weeks each year when Brasov is cramming with tourists: one is the week between Christmas and the New Year, the second is in autumn, when Brasov becomes the host of the Golden Stag (Cerbul de Aur) international music festival. During the rest of the year, there are hundreds of gigs, fairs, street festivals you can attend: just take a look on the event guides that are offered for free at any corner. If you are interested in theatre or classical music, you can check out the schedule of Brasov Opera, Sica Alexandrescu Theater, Joint Theater or Brasov Philharmonic.
