This pub is the meeting point of the fashion industry in Bratislava. In the heart of Staré Mesto, the interior design of the place makes it one of my favorites. If you're hungry you can order food served with a fancy design.

Mark Twain

This outdoor pub is a real local treasure. Hidden in one of the Danube meanders, in a tiny old ship that cannot be used for a proper cruise anymore. During the summer months people usually sit in and around the pub till late at night. A very relaxing place thanks to the amazing scenery.

How to get there ? You can get here by foot from ‘SNP’ bridge when you walk along the river direction hotel ‘Kempinsky’. After reaching the ‘Lafranconi’ bridge, go straight till you find a group of people with drinks in their hands and smiles on their faces.

Address: Botanicka 9, Bratislava

The terrasse under the inverted pyramid, also known as Slovak Radio host a really nice bar and a community garden. In summer, concerts and open air cinema are also available. Come, enjoy the deckchairs and chill by the garden !
