    Clubs

    Sofia has an interesting and varied club scene. From top clubs with famous international dj's to clubs with locals with a large variety of music: house, EDM, techno, hip-hop, rock etc... There are also special events that happen in special venues such as in the National Palace of Culture or it's terrace and many more. Of course as locals we know what's going on so just let us know your dates and musical preferences. There is not really a dress code but for the good clubs you are expected to dress properly. The cloakroom is usually not included in the entrance fee neither do drinks. You have to know 2 main things about the Clubs in Sofia:

    • People usually are around tables. There are tables and booths almost everywhere and the dance-floor is tiny. Some clubs do have a bigger dance-floor.
    • Getting into a club without having a table reservation is nearly impossible especially for the top ones. So booking in advance is mandatory!
    • If you are a group of foreigners that go by yourself the chance that they don't let you in is nearly 100%.

    Getting Around

    Sofia is a very safe city where street crime is almost non existent. You can easily and freely walk by night especially in the center.

    If you need to take a taxi there is a chance of getting ripped off since a few "fake" taxi companies operate in Sofia. They often imitate the design of the official ones. The risk is that you will pay up to x10 times more.

    How to get a proper taxi in Sofia:

    • install Taxi Me app (kind of like an uber but for taxis)
    • call the official taxi numbers: 0291119 / 029732121

    If you want to get a taxi on the street be sure to get into the official ones:

    • Yellow Taxi
    • OK Supertrans

    Even if you do so, have a look from time to time to the meter to see that it doesn't go up like crazy since some drivers have "pumps" that boost the meter.
    You can of course use the shared electric scooters of Lime and Bird.
