Bratislava never sleeps! On the contrary, towards the evening it gathers new energy with the promise of great times and gaiety till the morning comes. With its pulsing night life, Bratislava is designed for night enthusiasts and party-fans. Even the most demanding ones will choose from the wide possibilities if offers.
The night life in Bratislava is growing rapidly - many new bars and clubs are opening. The most intensive night is from Friday to Saturday and if you want to go out in a larger group then it is best to book a place beforehand. We have some tips for you.
Live jazz music plays every Wednesday till Saturday in Jazz Cafe on Ventúrska street. You can also try Cafe Studio Club on Laurinská, which offers live music several times a week as well.
We recommend cozy downtempo Nu Spirit Bar (known before as Buddha Bar) on Medená street with calming nu jazz ambience and its big sister - Nu Spirit Club on Štúrová street.
Downtown, the club Dole on SNP Square and the community center KC Dunaj at Uršulínska are quite popular. Students prefer Unique club or Elam in Mlynska dolina - the “campus town” of Bratislava.
For current electronic music you can try Radosť - an independent chill-out bar and club - or the renewed club Duna, both on Obchodná street. For even more music try Channels on Župné námestie. Subclub, an old nuclear shelter in the castle hill close to the bridge (Most SNP) offers a multi-genre sound palette, from local metal groups to techno parties.
You can find a lot of places in Europe but only a few of them have their unique atmosphere. The atmosphere of Bratislava will stay in your mind forever.
