For a relatively small European capital, Sofia has more than a dozen indoor and outdoor venues for jazz, rock and metal concerts. Mixtape 5 is among the venues that can house several different parties simultaneously in its two main rooms. As with most clubs, you’ll need to keep an eye on the schedule if you want to keep up with everything that’s coming up. The music is usually metal, rock, punk, indie, rap, bass, and sometimes there are DJ parties.

#soSofia tip: Big festivals often happen here with lots of local bands.
