If you prefer a wine bar, I recommend Corks - http://www.corks.ro/en/ and
Dionysos - https://www.facebook.com/winebardionysos/, both in Old city.

Hi Walter! If you are a beer passionate, you can try Caru cu Bere - https://www.carucubere.ro/en/. They serve tasty dishes and have their own unique beer recipe, from 1879. It's situated in the Old Centre, which is the main point of attraction here.

For a real feast, you can go to a medieval restaurant- Excalibur (http://www.restaurantexcalibur.ro/en/# ). Make reservations first, last time we had to wait quite a bit to get a table. You can call on the same day.

As for bars, there are many in the Old Centre you can choose from. The quiet ones are for + 40, so you won't have problems finding them :)

One advice you didn't ask for, but very good to know is that taxi prices must vary. Romanians pay 1.39 lei/km, you'll see the price written on the doors. Make sure you choose a taxi that has this price written on the exterior of the car and refuse any deals taxi drivers may offer you. They do tend to exaggerate a bit when they have foreign clients.

Hope you have a great time here! :)

Hi Simina, thanks for the advice. We are a group of 7 guys out in Bucharest to celebrate one of them turning 50 actually. We are not looking for the ususal stag night type weekend but like good food, music and love to dance to good tunes. We are too old to be at the super clubs so wanted a nice bar/club that would cater for our needs. We are staying at the Marriott so i think we will need to take a taxi to the old town.

Hi there,

Age is just a number :) But I know what you mean. What kind of music you prefer? I can ask around and give you more options. Just give me a day, please, if it's ok.

Best you ask the people at Marriott to call a taxi for you when needed.
