So here goes the list:
1. Alaus Namai
Alaus Namai (‘House of Beer”) is supposed to be a kind of metal bar, but attracts a mixed crowd. People come in to try one of many available beers from different regions of Europe. Next to an extensive list of Lithuanian breweries, there are German, Dutch and Russian beers. Several beer snacks are also available, some of them traditional Lithuanian. Most famous is ‘Kepta Jouda Duonele’, fried black bread with cheese and mayonaise. Or the ‘Parso Ausis’ (pig’s ear). Local challenge: Find the toilet! :-). It is in a basement, there is also a small room in the back where you can relax. Follow the little hallway next to the DJ (which is a laptop most of the time). Don’t miss this funny gem within Vilnius!
2. Salento DiscoPub
According to one visitor “decent looking bar staff. Plus there is a 24 hour bar outside, so when you leave the nightclub, you can nip in there for a couple of drinks…again good looking bar staff”
3. Cocainn Nightclub
According to one recent party animal “This bar has strict face control, but if you get in it’s a good club. Definetly not the cheapest one but not the most expensive either. Filled with students. People dances on tables and you might even see guys spitting fire on the bar counters!”
4. Universiteto Pub
A slightly streamlined Universiteto has shed its wine and sports appendages and is now functioning more or less as a bar with a backup plan of pub grub and the occasional student party. With a clutch of worthy drinking holes in the immediate area, this one-time expat favourite has had a hard time since it relaunched, but it seems to be doing ok with a more rowdy crowd of local youngsters who appreciate the affordable prices and endless procession of blondes. A great people-watching pub, although almost certainly not one for spending the entire evening in.
Entrance free – 10Lt.
5. Soho Club
Soho Club is Vilnius’ only gay club. The club is in a basement with tons of rooms. There was sushi and fruit on one of the bar counters. The drinks were very cheap but shaken to satisfaction.
All in all, this was definitely the weirdest and most entertaining (and funny!) experience at a gay club. This club is definitely worth checking out just for the “different and unique” aspect.
