Maze – Go down to rise up

This is a place under the surface.

In the dungeons beneath the city lies the heart of alternative music. If you want to hear some traditional Bulgarian music, you should visit some of the local festivals (“Sabor”) mainly during summer. But if you’re more into finding out how it fits and interacts with the modern urban culture, Maze is going to show you exactly how. Drums, bagpipes, trumpets and funky beat shake even those who had never heard such a thing before. Especially at Balkan music parties, the rhythm resonates in the air in such a way that you cannot stand still. Keep yourself updated about Maze’s Balkan party calendar and you might be lucky enough to witness traditional Bulgarian dancers performing in a night club.

Maze also features punk, rock and other alternative music. Artists come from all over South East Europe, to Central Europe, to far-East Japan.

Far from the stage there is a room with foosball tables if you need to chill in-between shows.

By the way, a night out at Maze would be a perfect combo with Brilliant bar (remember, “The Misery”) that I have written about, since it’s in the basement right underneath. (Check the Brilliant bar article.)
