Drinking & Nightlife

Moldovans are almost as crazy about beer as they are about wine, so you won’t be lacking drinking opportunities. Cognac (brandy) is another local specialty. Chişinău has oodles of bars and clubs, and Tiraspol also has a decent nightlife. Outside of the urban centres, the vineyards around Chişinău offer the pleasure of tasting fine wines in bucolic surrounds.
