Hidden in a basement is a beer lovers dream. Four fridges filled with boutique Lithuania beer, and helpful staff. Ready to help you choose your perfect first beer because trust me there will definitely be a second!

Bambalyne ("Bumbaleena") is a great underground bar to try a wide range of tasty Lithuanian beers. They have four stacked, self-serve fridges for you to browse the beers and peruse the labels. Choose one, take it up to the counter to pay, grab a glass, and serve yourself - simple. You could spend weeks trying the different varieties. Ask the... More

The place is charming - a canteen filled with beers - mostly small breweries from all over Lithuania. The concept is simple : just grab your beer from the fridge, pay at the counter and enjoy it at your table. Lithuanian labels are not easily readable but you can ask advices. the choice is endless. There is also some food... More

As you may have already understood - this is must-go for beer-lovers. This is heaven. This is Mecca. This is The Promised Land. Numerous choice of beers (and it's cheap), which you can buy and drink right here, in a small pub part of the underground. It feels like you are in a basement of a castle of some beer... More

This place is hidden behind an Italian deli, but is definitely not to be missed by any beer lover. There are a large range of beers from across Lithuania, all bottled. You go to the fridges, choose your beer, show it to the ladt at the counter and then pay then or at the end. They don't have a menu... More

This is a great little spot to enjoy a break from touring old town Vilnius. It is located in the basement and maybe a bit difficult to find, but once found the beer choices are numerous and tasty. Many artisan beers are available.

All I can say is that I'm glad we only found this place on our last evening in Vilnius, as I fear I might never have seen anything else had we found it the first day. A very cosy cellar 'bar', the walls are lined with fridges containing an amazing selection of local beers which I can certainly testify you... More

If you're a beer lover, happen to be in Vilnius, and have been slightly disappointed with the beer selection in the Baltic states, then do yourself a favor and visit bambalyne. It's located in a basement which makes it quite the rustic atmosphere for enjoying craft beer. All of the beer is bottled. You just select the beer you want... More

Hands down this basement bar is something everyone and anyone who lovers beer needs to try in their life. With cases and cases of beer you will never find anywhere outside Vilnius, and a super chill and comfortable setting you will spend HOURS at this place. Its the best "bar" in town!
