In case you're visiting Bucharest (or planning to!) and you're tired of browsing through endless tourist reviews on tripadvisor or lists made by non-locals - read this!
We're locals of Bucharest and have asked our network of friends what are the coolest places to hang out. Think of it like a 'top places to go out in Bucharest' ranked by locals on a What's app group :)
So, here are the results we got:
best flat white – M60, Coffee Factory, Origo
wine bar – Corks, Abel
beer bar – Beer O’Clock, Happy Pub (oldies but goodies) and The Urbanist a hipster-urban new spot for craft beers
newest spot for foodies – Burgers & Scoici, Caju, Buoni e Bravi
Romanian cuisine - La Copac (for the classics) and Mahala (with a modern twist)
must try shaorma – Divan, Dristor (typical street food we'll write about in more detail later – just try it!)
best dessert – Atelierul de Tarte, French Revolution, Mara Mura
cool bar to go right now – Paine si Vin, FIX me a drink, the Urbanist
