Hundreds of pubs and restaurants to visit in the area. Surrounded by fantastic old buildings and museums. The whole place has a good atmosphere and is well worth a visit , day or night. The old Romanian Bank buildings are really nice.

Bucharest has few highlights and for any dining or night life, this is where you go. The Communists wanted it clearing but used the area to house gypsies hoping they would destroy it, but they didn't, happily

The choice of bars and restaurants is staggering! Not matter if you are looking for somewhere to have a quiet drink or somewhere to let your hair down you'll find it. Most places are really good vallue. Drinks and meals are typically half of what they would cost in Western Europe. When i visited with a friend, she told me... More

This place is almost a ghost town during day but at night time is crowded with locals who are drinking and having fun. People stay up until late having fun.

Cute pedestrian streets in Old Bucharest lined with bars, cafes and restaurants. Tons of choices for drinking and eating, but not many shops. Walking distance from Plaza Athenee Hilton and many downtown hotels.

Open from morning to evening and from dust to dawn, it's the popular, animated city center you would also find in Istanbul or Prague. Lots of clubs, cafes and bars. A starting point for any kind of tourism ;)
