Drinking & Nightlife

North Macedonia's city nightlife is quite lively. Bars usually stay open until 1am in summer but locals don't tend to go out before about 10pm; clubs don't usually open until midnight – night owls rejoice!

There's a throbbing cafe culture, especially in Skopje and the bigger towns, and cafes are full morning til night with locals sipping espresso, 'Nescafés' and, in summer, rather hefty frappes (coffee with ice cream and chocolate sauce, usually).
