Where’s the best bar in Kaunas and how can I find it? Fear not, for the journey’s over and we’re here to lead you to the top bars in the city. Here’s an interesting Kaunas pub crawl that takes in four wildly different places in which to enjoy the guilty pleasures of alcohol.
Treading the thin line between a great restaurant and a top bar, it’s perhaps best to enjoy Galeria Urbana during the evening when it’s gone into full bar mode. The art exhibitions on the walls help the drinks go down a treat, and the summer terrace is truly magnificent.
For the real taste of Kaunas, Kultūra is a bar like no other. As the name implies, this is where the city’s arty people meet. Possibly the best place in Kaunas to meet colourful characters, especially on the huge outdoor terrace when it’s warm.
Another typically Kaunas bar is Skliautas. Various art and human rights organisations have their headquarters upstairs, and they often drop by in the evening for a few.
The cheapest beer in Kaunas? The Hog sells the stuff for less than €1 a glass. It closes early because the regulars who drink here start early. An anthropologist’s wet dream.
