Night Club
“Probably the biggest, boldest and best place on Strada Smardan. A casual mix of food and drink, Freddo is something of honey pot for Bucharest's sweetest bees. Open plan with glass on three sides as well as the roof the place looks fabulous, and hosts a variety of events from party nights to top DJ sets and live music. Now get there and enjoy sound cocktails, amazing pizza and decent salads. You might want to reserve at the weekends: this place is damn popular. Even opens early for bleary-eyed coffee the next morning. Perfect.”
