Editor & Marketing researcher
I would like to stay in bed and stare at the ceiling, but I almost never succeed.
The variety and the surprises Bucharest offers when you less expect.
The unrest that sometimes becomes annoying.
FOOD: Shift, Energiea, Verona terrace, Café Antipa, Grand Van Gogh Café, Paul bakery. Their services and their products have never disappointed me. I tried all the dishes and a big part of the drinks and as I liked them, I constantly come back. I know that if I’m in the mood for shrimps I go to Shift, if I’m into a good and nourishing salad, Energiea is the place; if I’m in the mood for a good pastry, Paul can make me happy and so on.
NIGHT: Before the summer begins I used to go in the old Control club (now Panic!) almost every Thursday, for the music, the atmosphere and the people. There is a different category of people going on Thursday in Control than the one from weekends. I go to Baraka terrace because of the great feeling of an open-air electronic party, I fell like being at the seaside. I sometimes choose Gaia, very rarely, for some of the themed evenings, for the atmosphere and the feeling of being in some kind of picture where being eccentric is allowed.
SHOPPING: The outlets in Stefan cel Mare St., Muncii Square and Unirii Square, Tonka, the second-hand stores in Stefan cel Mare St. and Iancului Square, Corelli Shop in Amzei Square, Idelier Concept Store.
CULTURE: Contemporary Art Museum, Odeon Theatre, CNDB, Bulandra Theatre (both Icoanei and Izvor venues), the Romanian Athenaeum, Patria and Scala cinemas, Cinemateca Eforie, The Cultural Centre “Palatele Brancovenesti” (Mogosoaia), Peasant Museum, the Centre for Visual Introspection, Anaid Art Gallery, the French Cultural Institute, the Hungarian cultural Centre, the Czech Centre, the British Council.
BUCHAREST DISCOVERY: I like to walk on the route of Eroilor Square– Unirii Square, then up to Lipscani St., wonder around Natiunile Unite Square, and then go toward Romana Square.
