Catch a concert by a local band or DJ at one of the city's music venues – including one housed in a converted nuclear fall-out shelter from the communist era. Year-round, the city's dance clubs pack in the crowds with the latest rhythms or older classics. Door prices are reasonable and drinks prices competitive by European standards – in pubs, a glass of excellent local beer can be had for less than €2 and cocktails start at €3-5, though expect to pay more in clubs.
Our recommendation is to do as the Bratislavčans do, and start your evening with a stroll among the bars and pubs lining the narrow streets of the old town, then along the broad expanse of Hviezdoslavovo Square – a route known for decades by the city's residents as the 'Korzo'.
