Sofia Bars & Clubs

Whatever your preference when it comes to going out, rest assured that Sofia has it covered! Quiet cafes, stylish bars, traditional pubs; they're all here, not to mention a wide range of nightclubs to end the night in.

The Bulgarian national drink is called rakiya and is a very strong and fiery fruit brandy: the quality varies greatly and it's probably fair to call it an acquired taste! Whether you're favoured tipple is rakiya, beer, wine, or spirits, we've got the lowdown on where to go in Sofia to have a great time.

Reviews about Sofia Bars & Clubs

Beer is good but food overpriced and really bad. Ordered beer sausages and didn't even eat them. Quality was too bad.

Beer Box

Terrible service!! You will wait 30 minutes to get a beer and 1 hour to get tour meal.

Beer Box

This place closed down a while back. It has now been transformed into an entirely different kind of club, called Terminal 1. Still good.


Super nice place.. The guys behind the bar are super natural and easygoing :) WE DRANK together all the night and even after ;)

Hip Hip Library&Bar

I've been to Escape 3 times and it was fantastic and very partying. I am planning to visit Bulgaria again this coming August'11. Can anyone tells me if Escape is still open because last time I visited Sofia, I found this disco closed ;o( and taxi driver said it closed down.


I can't speak for the standard of acts over a period of time but we dropped by on two consecutive nights to catch some really laid back jazz. The atmosphere is relaxed. Definitely give it a try
