Pubs & Bars in North Cyprus

There are at least as many bars and pubs in Northern Cyprus as there are restaurants – which should tell you that there is a wide choice available to keep everyone happy whatever their own personal pub or bar preference.

We have split our article into sections so that you can see what kinds of venue cater for your preferred bar or pub experience choice, and which should give you an idea of the wide choice of venue type available too.  From family friendly to entertainment pubs offering activities such as karaoke or quizzes, from late night music bars to your good old fashioned English style pub, we have them all in TRNC.  You can also find out more about the music club scene in our related article which gives details on some of the clubs to dance the night away in.

The other is the Ego Bar, which is located on the cobbled road heading back up into town from the eastern end of the
