If a trip to eastern Europe’s famous clubs sounds like a perfect vacation, you should visit Kosovo’s capital city of Pristina. Dance the night away at any of their famous clubs and bars, meet new people, and come back home with some stories about the experience.
Often rated as one of the top spots in Pristina, Soul Bar (also called Johnny’s Bar) is well-known and well-visited by locals. The bar’s proprietor, named Johnny, is a man of many talents and can be seen spinning LP tracks between pouring drinks. Unlike electronica clubs, this bar focuses more on classical rock and funk, making it a slower experience than some other locations on the list.
Perhaps the trendiest dance club in Pristina, Depot is everything you’d want in a nightclub. Almost always filled to capacity on a weekend night, you’ll want to get there early if you want to lay claim to a chair or a table. Most patrons don’t spend much time sitting, however, as the Depot party lasts all night with club music, hip-hop, and rap.
Visitors looking for something familiar may find something to like at Bar 91, which is an English-style pub where the televisions feature English Premier League games next to darts and cricket. At first blush it’s not quite a dance atmosphere, with a relaxed ambiance and a large food menu, but once the night gets late the tables come out and a dance floor kicks into high gear.
