Saranda is a bustling city at night: from 18h, the pedestrian promenade seafront comes alive with various shoppers, restaurants and a bars..
A lbanians are also like a lot the karaoke with traditional Albanian music singers : it is certainly impossible to sing these songs for French or european people , but these parties are so typical and it is also an opportunity to discover local dances.
Many bars and restaurants will allow you to have a drink or eat most often with a beautiful view of the sea would be difficult to be exhaustive because there are really many places but here are the main points .
Jericho Bar is a nice place that might remind Louisiana : wooden house painted in white color with raised deck for a great view of the sea music is current and incorporates the latest American and European tubes. The furniture is quite comfortable with small cushions on the seats. The property is located in the heart of the pedestrian walk to the tourist information points . ( this is a bubble glass built almost on the sea).
The cocktail menu is very well stocked ( about thirty) and cocktails are quality : well proportioned with fresh fruit . Price side it takes € 5 for cocktails which may seem a little expensive compared to regular prices but again the cocktails are very good. You can also connect Wifi to check emails . Warning establishment is quite small.
The Orange Bar is located near the end of the pedestrian promenade ( opposite the harbor). This bar has the advantage of being really seaside : So it’s almost the waterfront you will be able to refresh yourself. The bar is isolated from the road and pedestrians with bamboo fencing , so it’s a pretty quiet … and romantic place. Prefer a beer or a soda rather than a cocktail. The place is large enough to bring the family and enjoy a drink in the late evening . It is also a nice place to stop and enjoy one last time for a little peace before going to Mango Beach ( see below) which is located a few hundred meters away.
