Nightlife in Bratislava
In many ways, Bratislava offers exactly what Prague does, but without the crowds of tourists and annoying expats. And just like as with its Czech cousin, the key ingredient to Slovak nightlife is an enthusiastic beer culture. The amber nectar just keeps on coming, whether you ask for it or not - and there's no doubt you will. If the delicious beer is overwhelming, the girls are from another planet, and can't wait to practice their English on you.
Bratislava nightlife is not as varied as that of bigger cities like Budapest or Warsaw, but the locals certainly know how to have a great time. There are plenty of hidden drinking dens serving fantastic local brews, the obligatory Irish pub in the centre of town, and dozens of lively bars packed with friendly - and very, very fine looking - Slovakian girls. Two classic examples of Bratislava nightlife are the Mamut (Mammoth) Pub, once the largest beer hall in central Europe, and the 1st Slovak Pub, comprising 14 rooms representing different periods of local history.
The beer, the girls and the Slovak pubs and bars were made for each other, with the hearty, no-fuss Bohemian food adding the finishing touches to the Bratislava nightlife picture. Today's city is increasingly cosmopolitan and you will find a wide selection of restaurants, ranging from cheap, filling and very cheerful pub food to swanky eateries serving international fare with a Slovak twist.
Once you have had your fill of local beer and food, you will be itching to check out the Bratislava nightlife and see some Slovak honeys dance, maybe even without their clothes on. Bratislava has plenty to offer in this respect, too, from relaxed, stylish bars to clubs with quality DJs. In addition, there are plenty of what we call delicatessens (the Slovak equivalent of the British meatmarket, but serving only prime cuts), and the strip clubs are also well worth a visit.
