Nightlife

Bratislava, a great place to chill during the day, takes on a new face when the sun goes down.

Bratislava, charming and chill during the day, becomes a totally different place at night. The clubbing scene is lively. Pick your poison and your choice of venue and off you go! Find an intimate spot where you can sip a dry martini whilst having a great conversation for hours, or choose a more vivid bar, where you can dance wildly into the early hours. Rumours have it that visitors of Vienna get often lured to cross the border to party at the Bratislava’s hotspots, which can be found in the Old Town scattered across the Michalská, Obchodná and Ventúrska streets as well as Hviezdoslavovo and Župné squares. The Old Town is full of clubs and music bars with live musicians or great DJs.

For a club with a difference, visit the former military bunkers beneath Bratislava Castle. It is one of the city’s most unusual night spot, a mainstay of Slovak nightclubs for two generations. Known across the Europe for its deep, loud and steady rumble, here the founding fathers of a vibrant underground culture dust off their vinyl to work the crowd. Subclub, formerly known also as U Club, started out as a venue for alternative rock concerts, where the audience sat on empty beer crates. As the club grew popular, more and more DJs were invited to play sets here and the cornerstone of the Slovak techno, house, drum ‘n’ bass, and jungle music scene was born.

One of the founders of Subclub, Tibor Holoda, is also behind the Wilsonic electronic music festival, held in Bratislava every June. The festival and its spin-off club nights are a showcase for upcoming trends in the electronic dance music and present a fusion of old and new genres, mixing tradition with experimentation.

If you want to enjoy Bratislava’s underground scene, visit Nu Spirit, which has been leading this scene for more than 10 years.

And finally, hipster movement is on the rise too. A new multicultural hub is emerging on Karpatská Street, housing half a dozen number of cool bars and clubs, where a variety of subcultures congregates. A similar place can be found on Nedbalova Street, in the city centre. The cultural centre Dunaj in the town centre is another cool spot, with its live concerts, club nights, literature, visual arts, theatre and discussions evenings. The bar and the top-floor terrace offers  great views of the castle and the Old Town.

Chill by day and smokin‘ hot at night, Bratislava is fast earning a reputation as one of Central Europe’s best youth scenes.

Rockers want to party, too! Yet not all the rockers fancy seedy, shabby drinking dens. Trendier, discerning rock fans flock to centrally located Barrock for fantastic burgers, juicy ribs and a slightly upscale version of rock ‘n’ roll entertainment. You can enjoy some classic American fare in this handsome pub, there’s no shortage of beer and quite an impressive whiskey selection. TV screens showing sport matches are on around the clock, guitar rock plays in the background and a cigar lounge caters to leather-clad tobacco aficionados. Barrock, however, is far from being only a ‘gentlemen’s club’, as lady rockers find this burger haven just as attractive as the guys do. Barrock appeals to its fans all week long, but the fun intensifies on weekend nights, when the whiskey gets flowing (and table top dancing naturally ensues).
