I’m more about cinema, theatre and live music venues than I am about clubbing, so expect a fair bit to accrue here on the first three in this chapter and just a little on the clubs. Have a good night!
For Bratislava and Košice, we’ve also compiled this list of the classic places to go for a night out:
Slovak National Theatre (Slovenské národné divadlo or SND): The highly impressive SND has two venues in Bratislava: one (the original building) on Hviezdoslavovo Námestie in a grand 1880’s colonnaded building and the other (the new building, opened in 2007) east of the centre at the Eurovea shopping centre, overlooking the Danube.

Nu Spirit Bar: Time-tested bastion of experimental, electronic, hip hop and groove music in Bratislava, in a cosy cellar bar. Now the site has an English-language blog so anyone can follow what’s on. Things get going around 9 or 10pm. MAP
