Libraria Speakeasy Bar

Lviv-City Centre

4.3 / 5

May 11, 2018

The first speakeasy in Lviv, Libraria is home to a sumptuous library-like setting, live jazz , and a range of cocktails like no other in the city.

Imploring guests with a directive of “let’s read, let’s drink, and let’s jazz!”, Libraria in Lviv was the first speakeasy to open its doors in this gorgeous Ukrainian city, and it has quickly become one of the best places in town for a drink. Hidden behind a nondescript door off the Armenian Courtyard, once inside the bar, you are bound to be as impressed with their dedication to the theme as we were. Antique portraits, chunky beams, wooden chairs with slick green leather strips (the precise type you tend to see in university libraries), and shelf-after-shelf lined with colorful yet well-worn books, set an authentic ‘academic’ tone and even if you only intend to be reading the cocktail card during your visit, it all serves as the ideal backdrop for savoring a drink. Libraria is home to a list that offers both timeless tipples like martinis and manhattans in addition to the esteemed bar team’s creative takes on current trends. The crew that mans the bar here has trained in some of the world’s finest venues, and it shines through in everything they do. To complete the trifecta, Libraria is the undisputed home of live jazz in Lviv, featuring concerts and jam sessions nearly every night of the week from an international set of crooners, bands, and pianists.
