7 Need-to-know facts for an awesome night of partying in Ljubljana


1. When do Slovenian people usually go out partying?

Slovenians usually meet at about 9pm - 10pm and pre-drink/pre-party either at a bar, at home or out in public places. They head to the clubs at about 1am - 2am.

2. Do I need my ID?


Yes, you most definitely do! You’ll need it to get into the clubs, certain bars and especially if you get a check-up from the police.

3. How late can we still buy alcohol in supermarkets?


If you intend to pre-drink, make sure you buy alcohol before 9pm, since you won’t able to do so after, because it’s prohibited by the law. But no worries, you can still get alcohol in the bars, as long as they’re open!

4. Can we pre-drink in public places?


Well… kind of! It’s not exactly “legal” to do so, but HEY, a lot of people do it, especially students:). So if you’re not causing any trouble, are generally nice and make sure you take the empty bottles to the trash & recycle, it should be fine!:)

5. How long are the bars & clubs open?


The bars are usually open till midnight or 1am, meanwhile clubs are usually open till 4am - 5am.

6. Where’s the afterparty, bro?


To be honest, there are no epic after parties that you guys would really like, unless you get lucky and get invited to some local’s after-party or make your own. Most of the parties end and most of the clubs close after 5am. However, you can check the facebook page of the F-club if there’s something going on there that night, if not just head on home. SERIOUSLY BRO! It’s 5am, go to bed already! If you still wanna party hard the next day, join our pub crawl and we guarantee you that you will love it and pass out before that time!;)

7. Where can we get some food after the party?


If you’re leaving Parlament Pub ---> go to Surf’n’fries or FRKS
If you’re leaving Cirkus Club ---> go to Pekarna & Slaščičarna Center (The bakery right across the street) or Tramvaj (The red tramcar, also right across the street)
If you’re leaving Top Six Club ---> Go to FRKS (on the Congress square) or go to Nobel Burek (on Miklošičeva cesta)

Here are some of the other places that are still open after you are done partying:
- Fast Food Pub Pod Skalco
- Olimpija
- Slast

What are they saying about us on TripAdvisor...

Amazing Pub Crawl and Excellent City Tour! Party Guide and his team were great from start to finish.... He met us at our hotel and gave us a day / night to remember (although some details are still a bit sketchy thanks to his free home brew that he gave on before we hit the first bar). Can't recommend this tour / pub crawl highly enough... Read the whole review here >Sac, USA

If you want to have the best night of your life and do it in style, get in touch with Jani! Jani timed everything perfectly and was getting involved with the group when necessary, otherwise he let us get on with it. I really could not have asked for more - beautiful country, epic nights, wonderful people and Jani made it all happen. Cannot recommend him or the city enough!

We booked Pub Crawl together with 14 of my Erasmus classmates from Vienna, when we visited Ljubljana. One of them said after the greatest night ever, that you only Ljubljana once (YOLO) and you should definetly do the pub crawl when you are in Ljubljana, because you will never forget it. Our guide Matej was the best, took us to all of the best bars and clubs and brought us free drinks in every place. I definitely recommend Party in Ljubljana, because of the great guides, places, people and the experience you will never forget.:) Read the whole review here >Kaja, Vienna

We decided to book a guided tour of Ljubljana nightlife with Ana. It turned out to be an excellent decision. Ana was a wonderful host - friendly, warm and welcoming form the start. She took us to a couple of lively and trendy bars before taking us out to one of the main clubs in town. Wherever we went she went out of her way to introduce us to new friends and make sure we were having fun. I would definitely recommend... Read the whole review here >Ali, London
