The Old town of Cluj is an energetic area with many bars. After some days in quiet areas, it was nice to be able to enjoy the lively atmosphere and some people watching.
Shadow Bar: The inside gave its name justice, with heavy smoke hanging as a shade over the whole room. The small cozy balcony facing Soul Bar on the other hand, was a nice place. Walk up the stairs and to the left, passed the toilets. There are only two tables, so be lucky – or leave.
Klausen: A bar with seating both indoors and a nice terrace with hanging trees along the walls. They have a large selection of international beer, but I wish they had more local ones as well.
The Sovjet: Just across the street from Klausen, you find The Soviet pub. The red Soviet star in the window and other symbols inside make up for the name. To underline it, their cocktails immediately brings you to Soviet. Mainly because of their names, not for the vodka.
Che Guevara Social Pub: Continuing on the red star theme, Che Guevara Social Pub is a good place to continue the evening. Get the feeling of sitting out in a backyard, without getting the chills.
Sisters Cafe: On our way home we passed by Sisters Cafe. It looked inviting, but as we had an early start the next day and we were way past bedtime already, we unfortunately had to skip it. But if you check it out, let me know how it is!
