Yes, we have hipsters. And no, most of them will not be seen in the Old Town. They will be at brunch, at the movies or biking, of course. Want to do the same? Here are top 5 hipster activities in Bucharest:
- Brunch at Acuarela Bufet
Dare to stray from the Old Center and get to 3, Gina Patrichi Street, close to Victoriei Boulvard.
In a quiet and leafy old house, you’ll get to enjoy delicious omllettes and traditional pita-like goodies called “turtite” – flat bread baked on the stove with different stuffing.
Relax and cool off in Herastrau Park by “renting” a bike for free at the Arcul de Triumf entrance. Look for the yellow I’Velo sign.
- Outdoor movie night
Like all respectable hipsters, ours are movie buffs as well. But much about watching a movie is location, location, location. One of the most cozy is “Gradina cu filme” – The Movie Garden, in Piata Romana. With a big screen surrounded by cool graffiti and cool beers to go with the movie it’s a hipster’s must.
- Urban festival
This one has it all : eco projects, gourmet sandwiches, aspiring indie bands, tote bags, gelato…you name it, we’ve got it. But only for three days in June ( 12, 13 and 14) so make sure you don’t miss Street Delivery
- Roof top bar
In an abandoned factory of course. Open this summer, Deschis Gastrobar gathers hipsters from all four corners of the city on Splaiul Unirii for burgers and electro music. You just have to walk up three flights of stairs in this abandoned and dirty building. You’ll be fine.
