Best bars in Borovets

B.J.s bar is one of the best in town. Drinks are reasonable, with many happy hours and cocktail 2 4 1 specials. We also recommend you investigate the hammer, nail & tree trunk game. Great banter for a group of guys to start the night. Behind BJs is the road leading to Boni’s strip club (50m up hill). Surprisingly, there are many lapdancing clubs in Borovets and we advise our groups to be safe and not use credit cards in them.

Up from BJs bar (following the main high street, towards the Rila ski lifts, you’ll see the Red Lion pub. Drinks promotions, sky sports, big screen, friendly DJ, guests can select/request music, good food and fun parties, perfect for our ski stag weekends in Bulgaria.

On your way up to the Red Lion, you’ll see Buzz bar (worth coming here later 12pm). 2 rooms: 1 bar area, and 1 nightclub/dancefloor space. Fun parties til very late. Expect cheesy disco music and hen party types.

Walk past the Red Lion, you’ll find the small cozy pub – Funkays! Nice management, good food and good selection of cocktails. It’s a good starting pub, but recommended for smaller groups 14 less people.

On the middle of this long main street (all bars/clubs are on the right side – if walking up) – you’ll find the strip club called – Pigalle. A yellow cash change shop is next door, and Pigalle is in red neon lights with a bunny icon. It’s a like small ski chalet inside, a very quirky layout for a gentleman’s venue. Entry is free, but drinks prices will be higher in the Borovets strip clubs.

At the top of the main street, you’ll be at a cross roads. Take a right and you’ll find Francos. This is a very lively bar/nightclub. 2 levels, DJs, and does good food. This has been a popular venue for ski stag holidays and continues to be one of the best in resort.

If you walked to the left instead (at the cross roads), we recommend you find ‘Elenite’. It has a Deer beer [red neon] sign on it. Inside you’ll find a cosy pub/restaurant. But it is also a karaoke bar. The staff are very nice and it’s a great atmosphere once packed in.

Carry on walking to the left, past the main ski lift towards the furthest ski lift, look for the large sign ‘Black Tiger’. This is a bar, restaurant, nightclub, and professional Karaoke venue. They do food, but the drinks are better.

Would you like something more high end, some expensive cigars and whiskey? After a 11pm, keep walking past the Black tiger towards a very impressive white castle like building. This is the 5 star hotel Festa winter palace. Opposite the reception desk, head down stairs to the night bar. Capacity is 80 people and the clientele is well dressed.

Enjoy your time here but drink sensibly. Never leave a venue without telling your friends, and always drink plenty of water. For more information about Borovets stag weekends do contact the ski team today.
