“Quirky and Fun but Pricey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

The Apartment is like a hipster paradise. Each room is decorated with taste and tries to be more unique than the last, often succeeding!
The atmosphere is totally laid back and it took us a while to work out who was actually staff!
Compared to other bars in Sofia it is expensive and really you're paying for the chic interior not a marked difference in quality of food and drink.
I loved the Wonderland effect of all the different rooms and the quirky art scattered throughout but I have to admit I did nurse my drink!
Definitely somewhere to visit when you're after a relaxed and (relatively) sober night.

“Nice chillout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a cute place, pretty quiet during the early evening. We love the concept. Nice selection of cold tea's . No hot beverage during sumer ( hot coffee) . Homemade cookies and some desserts.
The place is hidden well, next to it is a piano bar, the ugo pizza place has closed.

“Lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

The perfect sanctuary in the city. Look out for Ugo pizza place and it's next door. Up the stairs.
A good cluster of places in this area.
Great tea, nice staff.

“Cool hangout bar, worthy of a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Went here with a couple of mates, and although its one of the more pricey bars in Sofia, it's also one of the coolest.
Large lounges throughout the flat make some idyllic hangouts for a drink with friends.
Interesting and sociable staff, although not the usual waitress definition as they look after the place for the owner, it's more like you're going around to visit friends.
Although they are poor at replying to text messages.

“Yes but.. no”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Cosy place, a few good beers, and... that's it.
Now if you want a good laugh, speak with the arrogant owner !
( also ask him for the "Free wifi" password and you wont be disapointed )
In short : they dont offer wifi if you are not Pro Apple :D
My recommendation : walk down the street and find a much better bar ;)
