Once you are in a different country, you want to make sure to experience and enjoy everything. A good part of this foreign experience are Lounge Bars. For anyone who is planning to visit Albania, I will give you a virtual tour around the best bars in Tirana. Let's start with Bunker 1944 !
Firstly, I will explain to all of you the meaning of the name of this bar. "Bunker" it's an underground defensive military fortification, originally designed to protect people or materials from attacks or even bombs. On the other hand, 1944 stands for the Liberation Day of Albania from the German occupation. Furthermore, the bar manifests that era in its architecture and decor. You can easily feel the vintage and retro atmosphere that this bar offers; old sofas and chairs, antique radios and paintings that date back to that time and invite you to dwell in albanian history. The dim lights create such an intimate atmosphere and coziness.

Bunker 1944 offers the best costumer service too. The staff is very friendly and they will make sure to give you the best time. And this place is perfect to try different cocktails and drinks, starting from those you've already tried to continue with original "recipes" from the barista. The on top cocktail of this bar is Bunker...well I think you already understood where this name comes from. Furthermore, almost every night and especially on weekends, you can attend different activities that the staff organizes. Live music, poetry and movie nights, games and lots of other interesting things. In few words, it's the perfect place to entertain yourself and make new friends.
