Soviet-era bars were a disaster. These days, there are plenty of above-average to excellent drinking holes in the Lithuanian capital!
Take a look at for pubs in Vilnius.


ImageThe dance scene in Vilnius has, somewhat undeservedly, had the reputation of lagging behind Riga and Tallinn. But this, at least partly, has to do with a wider range of musical tastes here; there are strong followings for death metal, hardcore punk, reggae, jazz and the like. That can’t be said, say, for Tallinn.
Committed clubbers, however, need not fear: you can get satisfaction in Vilnius. A clearinghouse of information about non-club-based parties is the largest party organizer in Lithuania, Ore; you can also email them at This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it . An Ore spokesman said their DJs stress “nu-jazz, nu-funk, breakbeats, deep and spacey house.” Other party organizers include Good Will People (techno and drum ‘n bass) and Metro Crew (techno).
These roaming parties are held in warehouses, printing plants and even at former Soviet bases in and around Vilnius. Landlocked venues also feature dance music, though often of the more commercial variety: one good place is Intro at (H-3) Maironio 3, tel. 279-1508. The semi-underground Green Club is punk oriented but also dabbles in dance club music. They’re shy about publishing their address, but you can call Ore (above) for their coordinates.
 Among the top DJs in Vilnius are Soulus Macoulus, DJ Mamania and DJ Halusin.
