Tirana by night
The nightclubs in Tirana are very active and have a large variety. Depending on your preferences there is a wide list of bars and clubs where you can meet nice people and have a nice cold beer (not only) in the hot summer days.
Take a look at the most frequented places by locals and not only:
Its a beautiful bar with live music, very friendly bar staff and management. Interior design is lovely and the alcohol range is big. Lots of local go here but its very foreigner friendly so u will find maybe many other travelers speaking your language.
Great interior, gives you a warm feeling. Music, beer, cocktails, food and people make it a top destination to spend your evening. Very yummy cocktails, funky,jazz-funk,soul music, sexy atmosphere. Very cozy, warm and different from other joints.
It’s that kind of bar which makes you jump 25 years in history. From the glasses that they serve the liquors, the 80’s candies Zana and everything else. Don’t miss the the propaganda posters in the walls and specially in the toilet 🙂
It is very similar to the Parisian cafes with the chairs watching the road. Amazing cocktails and great meeting point for coffee.
RockStock is owned by two of the most famous rockstars in Albania and they take care to create an awesome atmosphere there. Every weekend 4-5 singers perform live music, mostly famous covers from bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Guns N Roses, Helloween, AC/DC, Deep Purple etc but some of their other songs too.
Charl’s Bistro – The venue hosts regular live music acts from across the region as well as a number of other party events on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
Checkpoint Charlie – Really good atmosphere, several kinds of beer on drought. Very unique is the pricing strategy, where every 10 minutes the prices are changing 😀 This venue is also good for week days, when you can still find some nice crowd in there and the music selection is great.
It is located in the very center of ‘Blloku’ in one of the few existing beautiful villas in the area. The bar has an outdoor back garden and patio and also a great interior space.
During the winter there are some very nice live sessions with local bands organized indoors, while during spring and summer the bar is moved to the garden for lounging, coffee and parties. The music is always selected accordingly and the atmosphere and the decorations are inspired by Dadaism.
Duff – Great place if you like American sports and American food ! Burgers are really yummy service is friendly, cocktails are nice and they have beer pong !
It is one of the oldest and perhaps most famous nightclubs in Tirana. It’s a 500-capacity space
Folie – 1’000+ people are coming to Folie Terrace on spring and summer. Top local and some foreign DJ’s. Great sound system and light shows. Lots of people. Music is good and occasionally they have very skilled dancers up on stage.
It only opens on Fridays and Saturdays. They will always play techno or electronic music from DJ’s from all over the Balkans and beyond. The club is inside the Academy of Arts. Discobox usually opens after 02:00 and you don’t have to know how many glasses you drank when going there 😉
If you want to see Tirana from above, check out Rooftop XVI for a coffee or a party with friends. The view, the music and the cocktails are just fantastic. You’re likely to catch tech house there.
