Romania knows how to party and like many European nightclubs, music can be heard from late at night into the early hours of the morning, from pubs, bars, discos, and clubs. Bucharest, including the Bucharest old town nightlife, Cluj-Napoca, Brasov, and Constanta are locations of some of the nightclubs listed here, but other cities host nightclubs. Follow the music!
Most nightclubs don’t get started until around midnight, with some having a policy to stay open until the last dancer has gone home, which makes for quite a different nightclub experience when compared to most other cities. Here are just some of the nightclubs in Romania:
