The place to come for a wide range of bars and restaurants. However, it's a real mix of smart places and shabby buildings, as well as rather tacky in places. Suspect it gets rather lively late at night given the number of stag groups we saw, but fine in the day and early evening.

It's the largest and straightest street in the Old Town, anciently the place where merchants coming from Leipzig met and displayed their goods. Of course, the place has changed a great deal since those times, but there still are old buildings that have been restored and some old shops rather with a communist-era than pre-war look. It still is more... More

A survivor of the bulldozer's of Ceaucescu. You will find restored buildings, mansions in ruins, artists and vendors. Nightlife and pedestrians. Part of Old Town, I enjoy each visit here over the years.

We actually stayed slightly off Lipscani street smack in the middle of Old Town. Lipscani street is strewn with restaurants and pubs spilling out in the pedestrian only streets, row after row with lively music and lights. Towards the evening, young ladies with menus call for potential customers. During the day it is relatively subdued with some outdoor seating and... More

A shame more of it has not survived Ceaucescu's bulldozers but there is clearly investment going in and it makes for an interesting tour and a number of nice places to eat and drink. I would go by day and then by night as it makes quite a difference, at weekends there are lots of people thronging the streets and... More

the old town has come back to life and it's very nice to visit and have drinks. food is not great, except for a couple of places - Sindbad is good Lebanese. There's a nice wine bar - Dionisios which was nice to visit, staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
