Entertainment & Nightlife in Slovakia


Bratislava does not have a roaring nightlife scene, but its live-music and club scenes are expanding. You can definitely find a place to settle in for a few drinks or some classical music. The English-language Slovak Spectator, a Bratislava-based weekly newspaper, is a good place to check for the lowdown on the latest clubs and listings on the city's cultural life. It's available at international chain hotels and news stands. For performance schedules and tickets, you can call Bratislava Tourist Information (BIS) or Satur. Bratislava hosts an annual Jazz Days Festival in the fall.

Theatre and opera are of a high standard. Try to see an opera at the National Theatre or a concert by the Slovak Philharmonic. Tickets are relatively inexpensive, and the performances are excellent.

In the centre, the key nightlife areas are in the Hviezdoslavovo Square and around the Korzo pedestrian zone in the streets of Venturska, Panska, Michalska and Sedlarska.

The Malecon at Mostova draws crowds for mojitos and tasty food. Paparazzi at Laurinska serves modern international cuisine to a cosmopolitan crowd. The Coctail Bar on Panska is of the same flavour, as is the Greenwich Pub on Zelena, but neither serves food. Cocoloco Cocktail Bar on top of the SNP Square (near the Michael's Tower) is a stylish hangout for a slightly younger crowd. Downtown on Klariska is a hip trendy bar serving food. Sparx in the building of the former largest beerhall in central Europe on Cintorinska draws large party crowds, with qeues on some weekend nights.

Try 17s Bar on 17 Hviezdoslavovo Square, for great Slovak beer (and good pizza served until 1 am). The Dubliner's Irish Pub on Sedlárska Street is popular with tourists and the ex-pat crowd and serves Irish, as well as Slovak beers, along with pub food. Several pubs with traditional Central European beerhall ambience can be found around the centre; try Prazdroj on Mostova behind the Radisson SAS Carlton Hotel or Plzensky Dvor on Cintorinska.

For a non-traditional presentation of Slovak traditions, visit 1st Slovak Pub on Obchodna Street, composed of 14 separate rooms representing various periods in Slovakia's history that fit 650 people.

Students also crowd into the Hysteria Pub near the ice hockey stadium on Odbojarov Street in the evenings.

On the side of the castle hill on Beblaveho Street, you can find a few friendly bars clustered together, some even open quite late every night. Both U Certa, Vydrica and Andy Drink-in Gallery are well worth visiting for their laid back ambience and the local crowd, as is a growing number of newer spots in this charming neighbourhood.

A 20 minutes taxi ride outside of the centre but well worth the trip is Harley Davidson, a large and popular bar playing mainly rock and oldies located on Rebarborova.
