One of the city's hipster haunts, Barbar is a cafe by day and bar/club at night. It's a casual venue that draws a young-ish crowd of locals to its rowdy weekend parties and nighttime events.
Bars & Nightlife
Chisinau is known to have an active nightlife, fuelled in part by quality Moldovan wines (which are also unbelievably low-priced), and part the animated spirit of the capital's young residents. The city has seen a few trend-setting establishments open their doors in recent years, slowly but surely setting counter example to some of the tired flashing-lights-and-go-go-girls clubs that once monopolised the local clubbing scene.
