Looking the best bars and pubs in Yerevan? You are on the right way. The capital’s bars and pubs will be an excellent alternative for leisure activities with friends, especially if you have had enough of “spiritual food” and are looking for entertainment. Let’s examine the best bars and pubs in Yerevan!
We have already shared with you an article about Nightlife in Yerevan, in which we spoke mainly about nightclubs. In this article, we focus your attention on the bars and pubs, which in recent years have become so popular among the young and middle-aged people in Yerevan. Pub culture has recently come to Yerevan from Europe and, fortunately, has successfully got accustomed removing from its path cheap karaoke clubs and other places, vaguely reminiscent of the real “club” concept. The youngsters are looking forward to “Friday night hangouts”, throwing off all the heavy work load and to plunging into the fun!
Yerevan, of course, is far from London or Berlin in quantity and quality of bars and pubs, but even in the Armenian capital, it is possible to find several decent places for evening leisure. What distinguishes Yerevan pubs from European is a warm atmosphere, always friendly welcome (especially if you are a tourist!), quality music and delicious cuisine. In addition, it should be noted that Yerevan is one of the safest cities in Europe: the streets, even in the evenings are always crowded and bustling, especially during the warmer seasons.
In Yerevan, bars are divided into 3 main categories: always lively pubs, where the menu is dominated by mostly beer and a variety of cocktails, lounge bars and sophisticated wineries for the lovers of wine and continental cuisine. Pubs often host concerts of local rock bands and organize themed parties. The atmosphere in pubs is very relaxed and comfortable, and the unique interior contributes to it: everything from ethno style to thrash. Lounge bars feature classic, restrained decor and are suitable for a more relaxing pastime. Wineries are extremely popular not only among tourists but also among locals. In the summer, it is almost impossible to find a free table on the street because everyone wants to spend the evening enjoying a delicious glass of wine in the fresh air.
