What is Your Goal for the Night?
If you’re looking for just a quick glass of wine alongside the Ljubljanica river, or a proper hangover night out, you’re in the right place-we’re gonna tell you all about where, when and how to go partying in Ljubljana, the hidden gem of eastern Europe.
1. Going for a casual drink?
If you just want to chill out and spend some quality time with your dear one, places like Captains Cabin (right along on the river bank of Ljubljanica) offer the right intimate vibe you’re looking for. Even in winter, these bars are the most occupied area of town, but don’t worry about the cold. The places most often have warm blankets and machines right next to tables to produce heat. Some places which are a perfect destination for only 2 people chilling out are
- Captains Cabin
- Dvorni Bar
- Gig bar
2. Mainstream all-night out
Feeling adventurous and want to explore Ljubljana nightlife on your own? Local protocol consists of drinking outside from 21.00 onwards, since it’s legal to drink on the street, and then going to a club to dance it all off, like club Cirkus for exaple. However, this may vary on the night-sometimes, the big clubs are not even open. Even tho Ljubljana is quite small for a capital city, it’s not hard to get lost if you’re a tourist, which can be extra annoying in winter, when the days are shorter and the day light is gone faster.
3. A Guided Party Tour
Luckily for all party hungry people out there, Ljubljana offers a very well organized and almost a decade old party tour – The Pub Crawl Ljubljana. You can rest assured you’re gonna be escorted to the best locations to be at for that night by your very own party guides-resident “professional” party goers who have the nightlife Ljubljana in their pocket, The tour is not the only thing you’re getting-as the party leaders are make sure you get provided with drinks and games to break the ice and make interaction with other tourists more pleasant. You’re also guaranteed to hit between 4-5 different hotspots, where everybody else hang out. These are just some of the reasons as to why the party tour is rated as The #1 thing to in Ljubljana at night.
