The beautiful Transylvanian town of Sibiu in really lends itself to day drinking.

Daniel and I spent a carefree Saturday on Cinco de Mayo enjoying the city, and that definitely included indulging in a few day drinks. Beyond that, we’ve also visited quite a few of the bars during our five week stay here and these are definitely the top three bars for day drinking in Sibiu!


The Rabbit Hole

Location: Piata Mare nr.11 (the main square)
More Info Here

Start your day drinking in Sibiu here. The main square of this historic town is perfect for people watching. The Rabbit Hole has a central location and an extensive menu of mixed drinks, beer, and liquor. I recommend the Tokyo Tea, a light and refreshing way to begin your day for only 15 lei / 4 usd each.

Enzo Ristorante

Location: Strada Nicolae Bălcescu 21 (the pedestrian street)

A 45 lei / 11 usd bottle of wine? Don’t mind if I do!

It’s always nice to try a local white wine and the ice that came with it cooled us down as the sun just got hotter. Sitting in the shade on the central pedestrian street is a perfect place for day drinking in Sibiu, and both the price and location at Enzo Ristorante is definitely right.

Cafe Wien

Location: Piața Albert Huet 4,
More Info Here

Cafe Wien is the last stop on your day drinking tour through Sibiu.

Walk through the tunnel on the left of the restaurant and you’ll find a beautiful hidden patio, shaded with leafy trees and lined with blooming flowers. It’s cozy, it’s quiet, and it’s the perfect place to order a cheese plate and bottle of wine while enjoying a nice view over the historic city.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tour of the city and get a nice buzz going on while you’re at it.

When dinner rolls around, make sure you check out one of these 6 Sibiu restaurants the locals recommend. I taste tested each one (for quality control) and promise you won’t be disappointed!
