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.

Beer Paradise, beer Nirvana, beer, Neverendingbeer Land. If you really love beer, this is the place for you. Intimate, cozy, friendly underground treasure.

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!

This is truly beer heaven. That's right, heaven is no longer in the sky but right here in this magnificent basement. Come and try the unbelievable selection of Lithuanian micro-breweries. Love it.

A cellar bar with lots of original features in the old town. A must for anybody interested in trying out rare beers from small independent Lithuanian breweries. All the beers are bottled and in fridges with the friendly and knowledgeable staff more than willing to offer advice. The place has a slightly upmarket fell but the prices are very good... More

We liked *almost* everything about this place. The choice of beers is very good and the atmosphere, in a brick cellar lit by candles, is delightful and cosy. The service model is unusual. You go to the big, liquor-store-style refrigerators full of beer, choose a bottle for yourself (the labels are usually in Lithuanian only but you can at least... More

My friends and I really enjoyed it here. We went on our last day which was probably a good thing because we could easily get sloshed in there! Its a nice little cellar bar with lovely wooden furniture. The staff on duty at the time didn't speak great English but were nice and could easily explain what the process was.... More
