Cinemas in Sofia:
Sofia has an amazing nightlife scene. The city comes alive at night. There are many places to see live music, sing karaoke, and dance the night away.
Locals start their night with a big meal and a few drinks to start. People usually head out to the clubs around 11PM or later as bars and nightclubs can stay open until 6AM or even later. There a few licensing laws, so bars can serve alcohol at any time of the day or night and parties go all night long. There are many restaurants that stay open late as well as some of them turn into a bar at night.
The best time to go out to the club are on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Bulgarians rarely go out on Sundays. Sofia is a great host of a fun night out, but be sure to not get taken advantage of by scams or petty crime at night.
Public transport ends between 1AM and 5AM, so plan accordingly or take a cab back home.
