Nightlife

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

After the sun goes down, Bratislava truly comes alive. 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 SNP squares.

For a club with a difference, visit the former military bunkers beneath Bratislava Castle. Subclub 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.  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.

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.
