“ Address: Muresenilor 23 / Brasov / Romania „
Festival 39 is a cafe/bar that also serves up in Brasov. It's very centrally located and seems to attract a mixture of expats and locals, the place is very plush inside and also offers a large amount of seating, the prices are no way the cheapest in the town but they're not prohibitive either, the food is good but best of all for me is the eclectic choice of music, the staff here always manage to pull out some gems and put them on the speakers, playing a mixture of old jazz, blues, chanson and gypsy music, the place has a very relaxed feeling and is an ideal place to go on a rainy day or to soothe off a hangover.
It has become popular over the years, so much so that they've now opened a chain up in Bucharest. Book a seat if you plan on eating, in particular if it's around lunch or dinner time. Otherwise it shouldn't be a problem. Not really a place to go crazy but a very nice place to stop off in the middle of the day or at the end of a long day's hiking. The pub is very asthetic to the eye and tries to give off a New Orleans vibe, it succeeds.
To pay the place a visit, then head to the old city and look for the following address: Muresenilor 23
