Although far from being a nightlife hotspot, Skopje offers plenty of enticing after dark options for everyone. As happens every year throughout the country, many of the best clubs appear out of nowhere and open their doors to the masses for the short summer period only. If you’re in Debar Maalo late on a Friday or Saturday night, keep an eye (or an ear) out for the bars where the locals literally dance on the tables.


Skopje’s bar scene is alive and kicking. As well as the usual haunts in Debar Maalo and the city centre, the Old Bazaar features many cafés that transform during the evenings into fascinating and quirky places to drink and meet the locals in.


A few years ago it was almost impossible to find a nightclub in Skopje. Things are changing fast, although it’s worth mentioning that many places that advertise themselves as clubs feature everything a club should have with the exception of a dance floor.
