Slovenia is not only a land of natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. With tourism development in the last decade is also a popular destination for young people and those a little older who want to spice up their holidays with fun and partying in the best night clubs in Slovenia.

Nightlife in Ljubljana consists of numerous events, both outdoors and inside the nightclubs and bars that close their doors in the early morning hours. In many cities and seaside resorts around Europe, it is quite common that locals do not go to clubs and bars where tourists and foreigners go. But not in Ljubljana! In Ljubljana clubs, the locals are regular guests, so you will have the opportunity to meet new friends, especially because Slovenian men and women are very open and love to have fun.

It is very likely that the journey from the capital of the country will also take you to Bled. Bled nightlife is a bit more relaxed than in the capital, yet you will find some locations in which you will have plenty of fun. To know where to go, we present some of the best night clubs in Slovenia; especially we will give you information about nightlife in Ljubljana and nightlife in Bled.

Nightlife in Ljubljana – best bars in Ljubljana

First, we will present two best bars in Ljubljana, which can be found in the city center. The city center is very vibrant throughout the year, when the streets and bars are full of people, pleasant music on the streets enriches the nightlife in Ljubljana and when the whole atmosphere is very relaxed. Best bars in Ljubljana are located along the Ljubljanica River, which runs through the center.

Špica Caffe

The Špica Caffe, one of the best bars in Ljubljana, is located just a 10-minute walk from the city center, on the renovated embankment of the Ljubljanica River. There was once a known city beach, but today the Špica Park presents the riverside place for socializing, embraced by green nature.

On weekends, the Špica Caffe turns into a night bar, offering excellent cocktails and wines. On the terrace there is live music and concerts that invite visitors to dance. On weekends, the Špica Caffe is open until 23 pm, and it is an excellent starting point for those who will continue the night in famous Ljubljana clubs.


The nightlife in Ljubljana would not be complete without the experience on the Ljubljanica River. Makalonca Bar offers just that, as it lies only 50 meters from the Prešeren square and its terrace is placed on a floating river raft above the water.

Most locals start their night in the Makalonca Bar, where they drink local beer, cocktails and eat delicious burgers. Almost every night there is a live music or so-called DJ nights, so the party is guaranteed until 3 am.

Bled nightlife is slightly more relaxed from the big parties in the capital city, but that doesn’t mean you’re not going to have any fun. If you usually party until the morning hours, it’s good to know that most of Bled nightlife places close their doors at 3 am.

To make the lake Bled nightlife experience memorable, we recommend that you attend the guided party tour, where three local young guides will take you on a fun adventure around bars and nightclubs in Bled, where you will meet a lot of people from all over the world. The Bled nightlife tour begins at the meeting point in Art Café Bar, from where lake Bled nightlife party will continue to:

  • Kult Klub: In winter, the Kult Klub takes on more alternative music, however in the summer it becomes one of the best night clubs in this part of Slovenia, with many concerts of popular music genres.
