Bucharest In Your Pocket 75

Bucharest In Your Pocket issue 75 is done and dusted and at the printer. Here is the cover:

Features this issue include a look back at the Bucharest earthquake of 1977, books about Romania in English (including some reviews first published here, as well as a cracking new sketch of Paul D. Quinlan’s Carol: The Playboy King by Chris Lawson) and Bucharest’s tallest buildings.

New venues to look out for include Mircea Dinescu‘s restaurant Lacrimi si Sfinti, on Strada Sepcari, and what is perhaps our new favourite bar, Laboratorul de Cocktailuri.

We would also like to point out that the guide includes a listing for Malagamba, which is very much open! It was closed for a few days in January following an overzealous visit from the financial guard, but has since reopened and is as good as ever. Alas it seems news of the reopening has not spread as quickly as the news of the closure did.

    Just make sure the city guide book doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Fed up of being mistaken for a tourist and chased around the old town by some gadgey shouting “Hey mister mister 5euro for guide book”

    • Has this actually happened, with our guide?

      • Mr Rearguard

        Yep! But it’s ok, I can always say no to them bad boys!
