Places To Eat, Drink & Work In Bucharest, Romania

This is fast becoming one of my favourite segments of the blog – I don’t know why I’m surprised after all, FOOD!

If you don’t know by now, I’m doing my best to document the favourite places we’ve found to eat, drink and work while on our Digital Nomad journey. Today it’s the turn of Bucharest, Romania.

National Military Circle

Our first destination is all about the eat, and it’s perhaps the weirdest place I’ve ever eaten. I’m talking about the restaurant at the National Military Circle. We’d heard about the grand interior of this place, and the fabulous lunch menu from someone staying in our hostel dorm and it was just too intriguing to resist.

For just 19leu you’re able to get two courses from a set menu (of three different choices), complete with sides.That’s the current equivalent of £3.65.


With a music influence this pub is the perfect place to have a pint or dig into a delightful home cooked meal. The food isn’t the best you’ll taste in your life but in the terms of an experience, this place has it all.

Two main meals and two drinks came to the equivalent of just £8.07.

Free Things To Do In Bucharest

Gloria Jean’s Coffee

Gloria Jeans is a fantastic place for eating, drinking or working. This coffee shop has a fantastic amount of seating both inside and outside and some great free wi-fi.

The sandwiches looked delightful. However, we only stopped in for a 650ml mango cooler that cost 17 Leu – and was beautiful!

Nexus Gaming Pub

This place is a hidden gem. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Bucharest with the fastest Wifi I’ve experienced in my life!

Nexus gaming pub has plenty of seating. However, the loud music and lighting isn’t going to make it suitable for everyone to work in.

However, once the work is over Nexus Gaming Pub is perhaps THE GREATEST place to hang out in Bucharest. With access to gaming computers, a PS4 (alongside some of the latest titles) and a load of board games.

We spent around one and a half hours in this place, we had 2 bottles of waters and 1 bottle of Fanta. All this came to just 12 leu (£2.29 at current exchange)

As always I’ve put together a map outlining the location of each of the destinations I’ve spoken about in this article. If you’d like to contribute places you ate at, worked in or drank at feel free to leave a comment.

    Bucharest has some great spots! We had drinks in The Urbanist, a super-Instagrammable little spot. We also had dinner at Hanul Lui Manuc, which was SO affordable and delicious!
