6 blocks with almost 300 bars. Some places say no foreigners and some have a cover charge, but there are plenty that don't This is a fantastic place to meet people, including other foreigners. Some bars have funny names.

About 2-3 rows of small bars. Each have an unique theme/ feel. Some have bar sitting charge, some have traveler friendly signs. Very unique scene.

This place has many small and quiet bars where you can go with a group of friends (or alone to meet new people!) A lot of the bars do have a seating fee so make sure you look out for that first.
