Memento actually has three locations. All are worth visiting – one on Rakovski Str., one at NDK and one on Vitosha Blvd. By the way, the latter is among the most expensive streets in the world – 22nd in one ranking but I believe it might get to Top 3 if you take into account some criteria like GDP per capita.
But let’s not get carried away. It’s actually a clone of one of the locations that I want to share with you here. During the summer usually most of the people in Sofia try to get out of the city as often as possible. For those left behind, there was little consolation… Until a couple of years ago.
Memento Beach Bar is just steps away from Memento bar that’s on the corner of Rakovski Str. and Gurko Str. It’s a very good option if some of the other nice bars in Sofia are too crowded but recently it also became really popular so I suggest that you plan your visit in advance.
Unlike its older half, the ‘beach’ bar is not directly next to the street and features a pool, chaise longues (beach beds), sand, tents, flowers and even a hammock. All around a huge seaside-style square bar in the middle.
Now, don’t get me wrong – the other locations are also good but we will probably talk about them late autumn or winter. Actually it was in the winter that I found and got to like Memento in the first place.
