The Pulse of Vilnius Nights

Vilnius, the heart of Lithuania, beats double time after dark. The Old Town, a maze of history and culture, lights up with an eclectic mix of bars and pubs. Wander through Gediminas Avenue or the artsy Užupis district, each filled to the brim with their own character. Some people call Vilnius the new Berlin— perhaps without the pretentiousness or need to wear a gimp suit!

The three main streets to explore in Vilnius for a great night out are Vilniaus, Islandijos and Vokiečių. There you can find the full spectrum of places and spaces, ranging from exquisite fine dining, cocktail bars, pubs, clubs and even raves. With so many options, even the saddest of wall flowers can immerse themselves in culture and discover something new!

Kaunas After Dark

The adventurous younger sibling, Kaunas, has its own unique nightly adventures. It’s all about Liberty Avenue here. Lemmy’s Bar offers a plethora of local and international bands for fans of rock music, and Bardakas offers a totally distinctive nightlife experience. Craft beer is abundant and features regional brewers with a rich history and wide flavour profile.

Kaunas is smaller than Vilnius, but don’t make the mistake of passing it over in favour of it’s big brother, it has its own, unique charm that simply can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Take a gulp of craft beer and listen to some live jazz guitar or take a peek at its rebellious spirit with a wide range of underground sex clubs!

Coastal Charm in Klaipėda

Klaipėda, with its maritime soul, offers a more relaxed, though equally satisfying night scene. The Old Town transforms into a hub of activity, with music spilling from every corner.

Hofas is a place where the alternative crowd meets, with local and international artists playing regularly. And if you’re looking for something calmer, there are loads of oldtown bars with amazing cocktails and craft beers. As the warmer months unfurl, Klaipėda’s coastal charm comes in to its own.

Beachside cafes are the perfect backdrop for sipping your favorite beverage. In Klaipėda, every evening is an invitation to unwind, connect, and immerse yourself in a night scene that’s as captivating as the city itself. Here’s to the Baltic Riviera!
