Why Bucharest is a great destination for bachelor parties
While organizing a bachelor party, the destination is definitely one of the most important details that you have to decide on. Ideally, you want the celebration party for your buddy’s dying days of singledom to be wild and forever remembered.
At least as long as you don’t end up with the stolen bones of a deinotherium in your hotel room and the groom doesn’t go missing for a worrying amount of time.
And although planning a bachelor party might seem like something you can’t wait but start doing, usually, the reality is a little bit different. All that wild, crazy fun comes at a pretty high cost, and it can leave your bank account in tears. But that usually depends on the destination that you pick and the activities that you plan.
And while Bucharest might not have the crazy nightlife of Las Vegas or Amsterdam, it’s still pretty great.
Oh, and you don’t have to break a bank to have fun.
Here’s what you can do in Bucharest
Go crazy in a break room
Have you ever wished to just enter a room, grab a baseball bat or a crowbar, and start smashing stuff? Well, in Bucharest you can do just that, at the Break Room.
Some of the items that you can break include vases, porcelain trinkets, printers, TVs, phones, toilets, kitchen furniture, and more. And you can also bring your own stuff.
And by the way, you don’t even have to worry about safety equipment – you’ll receive safety goggles and clothes on the spot.
P.S. If you feel like a crowbar or a baseball bat are not quite your weapons of choice, you can never go wrong with a sledgehammer.
Visit the Romanian Kitsch Museum
The Romanian Kitsch Museum is “the best way of understanding Romanian (sub)culture”.
Located in the heart of Bucharest, the Kitsch Museum is a place where you can discover some of the most unusual, ugly, yet somehow amazing to look at Romanian items of decoration. From ridiculously artistic wall rugs to creative yet peculiar trinkets, the Kitsch Museum houses items that at some point in time simply couldn’t miss from any Romanian home.
P.S. Another great museum that you can visit is the “Grigore Antipa” Museum of Natural History. Just make sure not to take any of the deinotherium bones.
Practice your shooting skills
If you ever wished to go to a shooting range and test your pistol skills, now’s the time. The Tactical Shooting Range in Bucharest has a variety of pistols you can choose – from M1911 and Glock 17 to Colt King Cobra and Makarov.
The prices of the packages start from €30 for the Cadet Package and go as high as €70 for the Roni package. Besides the weapon and the ammunition, you will also receive one or two targets (depending on the package), 30 minutes to shoot your weapons, and the assistance of one of their trained professionals.
Where should you eat?
Bucharest is full of restaurants, and picking where to eat might feel overwhelming. But don’t worry, because we’re here to recommend some of our favorite places to eat in Bucharest.
Caru cu Bere
Caru cu Bere is more than a simple restaurant – it is a historical landmark of Bucharest. With a history of more than 130 years, the restaurant was built in a neo-Gothic style, and its ground floor is beautifully decorated with hand-carved furniture, mosaics, paintings, and stained glass.
This is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Romanian meal and a cold pint of beer (or several), and it has received the seal of approval of numerous celebrities, such as The Rolling Stones, Nicholas Cage, Demi Moore, and Edward Kennedy.
Restaurant by day and club by night, Noa Restoclub is a great location to enjoy a delicious meal in a cozy, modern atmosphere.
Besides the traditional Romanian dishes, this place serves a variety of tasty meals, including burgers, pasta, steaks, and seafood.
Every Wednesday the restaurant organizes live music sessions, on Fridays you can enjoy a live jazz session, and on Saturdays, you can dance your shoes off at the clubbing session.
This chic bistro located inside the Athénée Palace Hilton Hotel is a great place where you can enjoy some French dishes with a modern Romanian influence.
Their menu includes a variety of items as well as numerous delicious desserts and beverages. So whether you’re looking to have a full meal or just grab a cup of coffee, Café Athénée is a great place to start your day off.
Located near the Carol Park, Fabrica Club is a cozy location that’s perfect for enjoying a cold beer or a glass of wine.
Besides that, the club can also organize private parties on their upper floor, which can hold up to 60 people. During weekends, they also open up their B52 club where you can dance until sunrise.
The most iconic part of the club is, by far, its terrace. Equipped with a bar and a kitchen, a TV, a projection screen, a slackline, a basketball court, and a kids’ area, this is the perfect location to relax and enjoy some cold beers and delicious snacks.
Club Control is closely located to the Bucharest University, and it is a pub as much as it is a club. The venue opens at 13:00, and its terrace is a great location to enjoy a cold drink and hide away from the summer heat.
At night, the pub turns into a club, and every night from Thursday to Sunday they organize various events and live concerts, with many of the performing bands being international.
Pro tip: If you’re looking for a wilder party or a pub crawl, the best place to go is Bucharest’s Old Town. The whole area is packed with tens of pubs and clubs, and the parties usually last until the morning. Especially during weekends.
