The night life of Borovets - quick review (18 January 2002)
The night life of Borovets - quick review (18 January 2002)Friday 18 Jan 2002 This report on the night life we decided to do, because of the big number of questions from our visitors, who wanted to know more about the most famous night life places at the resort of Borovets. We visited few bars and had some drink in each one of them, just to feel the atmosphere and write more about it here. So, we started from the Peter's bar, which is situated on the corner of the street, near Samokov hotel, and just across the street from the Gondola lift station This places is basic, with wooden tables and benches, and is known as a Karaoke bar. There's good English speaking DJ, who plays on the karaoke system your favourite song, so people can sing on the melody. The owner of the place is constantly moving around the tables, making sure that everyone feels good and has enough to drink. The prices are the normal for Borovets - mixed drink (alcohol+coke/fanta/etc) 4 levs, pint of local beer is 3 levs, etc. Someone said that there's good exchange office near this bar. The other place we are visiting is the Black Tiger - a karaoke again. This places is situated in front of Rila hotel, next to the lift station. This bar is nice, and has good atmosphere. Again, Karaoke for all who can (or can not) sing. The owner of the places explained us that he is visiting Britain every year to buy new Karaoke records. People can order their favourite songs and sing. On the bar desk, there are places big number of British football teams accessories, so if you want you can bring some more from your favourite team to be placed there. Prices in the Black tiger are the usual ones. There's big selection of beers (both local and international), alcoholic drinks, etc. This could be a good place where to start the night or may be stay here till the morning. After few beers, we are moving to the Rila hotel night club. At this night there was a ski instructors evening. Beginners who learned to ski during the past week were given diplomas. It seemed that people were very excited of the fact that they now were able to ski. Also, there was a game, where the lucky skiers won special prizes, like a bottle of champagne, a pair of skis, or some other skiing accessories. Although Rila night club is a disco, there is no entrance fee collected. Prices of the drinks are the same like everywhere in Borovets. The music that night was rather old, I suppose that that's what people wanted to listen to that night. I am not going to say anything about the 'Go go girls' place (near Rila and Alpin hotel), because that night I was with my wife. But I'm sure that someone of you will share the impressions of this place, so that we all know :) Finally we stopped at the famous Buzz Bar. There is no entrance fee, but they charge 1 lev if you want to leave your jacket for safe-keeping. This place is more like a disco, consisting of 2 parts, one half of the place is the dancing area, and the other one has the tables and sofas where tired can relax a bit. Atmosphere was fantastic. People were having fun, and the DJ was really good, playing and mixing professionally the latest tunes. A big selection of drinks and cocktails are available here. Enjoy the 'Happy hour every night from 10 pm to 12 pm - buy one get one free on every Bulgarian alcohol and beers'. I would say that this is the best place for clubbing on the resort. There is only one thing that should be improved - the air-condition system is not working well, so it gets too smoky. N.B. I'm explaining for everyone who has not understood yet - NO, THIS IS NOT MR. BULGARIASKI on this photo :)
