The key night life areas within the centre of Bratislava are in the Hviezdoslavovo Square and the Korzo pedestrian zone which includes the streets of Venturska, Panska, Michalska and Sedlarska.
The Malecon at Mostova draws crowds for their mojitos and tasty food. Paparazzi at Laurinska serves modern international cuisine and an eclectic cocktail menu to a cosmopolitan crowd. The Antinori is of the same flavour, as is the Greenwich Pub on Zelena, known to the locals as the Coctail Bar (sic), but does not serve food. . Downtown on Klariska is a hip, trendy bar also serving food. Destination Vodka Bar, located on Panenska, is one of the newest bars in the center and offers three floors with two bars.
On the side of the castle hill on Beblaveho street you can find a few friendly bars clustered together, some open late and remain open until the early hours. Both U Certa, Vydrica, and Andy Drink-in Gallery are well worth visiting for their laid back ambience and local crowd. This neighborhood is quite charming and there is a growing number of new spots as well. Also U Dobreho Pastiera and Azyl Club are nearby.
One popular spot outside of the centre that is well worth a taxi ride is the Harley Davidson. Harley Davidson is a large and popular pub playing mainly rock and oldies located on Rebarborova (20 minutes by taxi). Don't let the name fool you, Harley Davidson draws a much more diverse crowd than only the local bikers.
If you want to opt for more of a local flavour, be careful. Avoid tourist traps and nasty local dives. We ask you to use your best judgment, otherwise you may learn about the not so favourable spots fairly quickly.
