New Year’s Eve is the most lively evening in Bansko of the year. This page will be update with the offers I receive from venues. Al most all places are child friendly. Many places fill up over a week before New Year — so book now.

3.  Smokey Mountain Bar And Grill

Scott and Keira have worked hard to bring tasty ribs and burgers to Bansko. I await their offering for New Year. But I can tell you that a good selection of both foreign and Bulgarian craft beer keeps me coming here.
