A visit to the old city is worth your while whether you are young or old. It is the place full of restaurants and clubs and nightlife always crowded with people of allow ages. Interesting to look for those narrow streets that have been transformed into sweet restaurants. Some restaurants are decorated so artistically it is a pleasure to enjoy.... More

Like most of bars in the old town, this place had outside seating at the front on the boardwalk - great for people watching However, the drinks lounge a the rear of the bar with the retractable roof was the hidden gem Great place to chill and have cocktails Cheap (compared to UK!) and good service A couple of the...

We stayed in here for a couple of drinks after coming back from a few days in Transylvania. The bar staff were friendly and chatty and we had some good local beer. We didn't eat the food but the atmosphere and company was good if I am ever in Bucharest again I would go back.

Fancy a drink anytime of day and you cant go wrong with Old City really. Yes it can get a bit Smokey but the unfiltered beer is great and prices are low compared to other bars.

it is a nice place to hang out for a drink with friends, but I can't say that I love going there. I went there twice, but there are less crowded places and with less noise that I like more.

Enjoyed this very much, wandering round the old town, loads of nightlife and the place was very lively. Starting to become a touch too European perhaps, with plenty of British named pubs and bars, but plenty of other places to go if you dont want this.

That's what I got to say about this place. The staff is acting like they are on their day off and almost everybody forgot to smile. Too many bodyguards in this little crowded place !!!! And what to say about the sound ? If you manage to stay more than 1 hour and your ears don't start to bleed then... More

Not too much atmosphere. Staff efficient but not very "smiley' .Personally , I found the music rather intrusive . Prices 'correct' and the house salad was both good in quality and value for money .
