Cozy is a bar that is different at all times of the day. For me, it is only worth coming to in the morning when they have the English breakfast. Eggs with runny yolks (the only place I know in Vilnius to do this), sausages, toast, jam, mushrooms, tomatoes and free tea, all for around 4 pounds - well this isn't bad.
Other times of the day aren't the best. Recently they raised the price of their meals on the menu at a time when everyone else was lowering theirs. They also made their portions a little smaller - something, which isn't a good thing considering that Lithuanian portions are already quite small.
The food is good however - tasty and international, sometimes this place is the only place to go for a decent snack, even if it is a little more expensive than other places.
I sit here in Cozy at this minute (using their free wireless internet - a plus) and the table next to me found a shard of glass in their sandwich. Following this they had an argument with the waitress over whether the sandwich was for free. This tells a story in itself.
The nightlife here is boring, but in winter they have an excellent selection of Lithuanian teas - probably the best reason to come here in winter.
I suppose after slagging off Nobo bar in Warsaw, I should do a positive review. I'm not going to though, I'll get another waste of a few beers worth of money out of my system! I've been to Cozy Club/Cafe Bar in Vilnius a few times.
The word Cozy couldn't be far from the description, it's not cosy at all, it's a modern pub with little room for socialising except for with people on your table.
It's another slightly expensive place (beer is cheap but coffees are expensive) for the well to do with good jobs or for the more classy foreigner, the cafe upstairs is a pretty popular place and serves a variety of complicated coffees that come in an enormous glass with ice cream, coffee beans and all manner of decorations. Alcohol wise, they have a good variety of drinks at medium prices (about 1.50) but it's a essentially a lounge bar where friends (mostly girls) find out what they've been upto in a sort of Sex in the City way. They generally play chill out music or jazz, the seats are comfortable.
This part of the pub I can tolerate, it's the club downstairs that plays minimalist techno or electronic music that and has the atmosphere of a graveyard even on a Friday night. There's a large round bar surrounded by seats and an additional chamber which is used as a dancefloor. There is a decent choice of cheap beer but there's really no need to go down there as there is often nothing happening until much later in the night. The decor is ok, a sort of cool (climatic), industrial factory feel to it. Just about anywhere else is likely to be more busier in the evening though.
Slip into this subterranean playpen for some spicy nighttime shenanigans. Cozy prides itself on throwing some of the best parties in town.
