Excellent environment from open to close! The crew was super professional and warm. Cocktails with local Bulgarian flavours, or the classics of always. Special shout out to Darina (I hope I wrote well her name). A an amazing Barmaid!

We spotted this bar when looking for places to get drinks near our hotel. They have a variety of cocktails to suit every taste and the staff were very knowledgeable about all of the different cocktails on offer. We worked our way through a good...few of the different cocktails on the menu and they gave us information on each as well as recommendations based on our taste. We went early in the evening and had dedicated service throughout the time we were there.More

The best and most extraordinary cocktails! We were welcomed with warm open arms and catered to our wants and needs. Would highly recommend the Sozopolis 2.0 cocktail if you’re looking for something unique.

The cocktails are next level! It`s perfection to the last detail. When we got one of the cocktails i made a joke about the weird glass it was served in. The bartender in a very professional matter explained the origin, history and shape of the...glass imidiately and abou the flavour profile of the cocktail and the origin of the raw ingredients. They know what they are doing and i really can`t recomend it more.More

Cool cocktails and fun light effects. Friendly and attentive service - felt like a Daft Punk concert circa 2001. A little tricky to find as it doesn’t say ‘Sputnik’ in English on the outside so trust google maps 😎.

Deserves to be in Top500 Bars list. Using Rakia as a main ingredient of many coctails impressed me as a supporter of local flavours.

The bar looks cool and quirky: the walls are covered with honeycomb shaped soviet carpets, the waiters are dressed in cosmonaut suits, which gives the whole “Sputnik” vibe, there is an exhibit of a seated cosmonaut and many posters related to the Soviet Union. In...the hall there are interesting items such as: an old retro refrigerator, scales, etc. The light in the toilet is shrouded in red neon and the mechanism of the door in the toilet is cool and unusual, you can check it yourself. Cocktails: I tried the whiskey sour and it was very tasty, 10/10, one of the best cocktails I had in Sofia. Unfortunately, we had a problem with the bill calculation and the sum was higher than I expected. But we resolved this situation with the manager, where my situation was reviewed in a good way and the manager supported me as a client.Therefore, I encourage the customers to clarify the price of cocktails that are not on the menu beforehand and always check the bill. I put a rate 4 only because of this situation with bill, but since the manager did everything possible to resolve my problem and customers are valued here - I put 4 points to this bar. It is worthy to visit.More

This is the best cocktail I have ever tried. The service was superb and above and beyond every expectation! If you are unexperienced the personel is ready to guide you through your cocktail experience. There is a safety guarantee by the friendly and professional staff...that the drink that they suggested is free if you don’t like it, but they have enough experience to know you will like it. Definetly reccomend it!More

Came here with a friend for a drink on a Saturday evening. Staff was friendly, serving was fast and the drinks were great. We ordered a Sofia Mule cocktail and a home made ginger soda. Both great! Prices are not bad either. The aesthetic of...the place is super nice and the toilets have all necessities provided - deodorant, pads, tampons, toilet paper, soap, and towels. Highly recommend.More
