The recipe: music, atmosphere, people.
Expirat was established in Bucharest in 2003 as an alternative music venue and it evolved from there, becoming the oldest and most popular open-format club in Bucharest. A flagship venue for all things underground. The place where a lot of the current en-vogue bands started their careers. The club whose second room (OtherSide) influenced the course of electronic music in Bucharest. A permanent street art exhibition. The old Expirat used to be all of the above and more.After 14 event seasons spent in a basement on Brezoianu Street, in the old center of Bucharest, Expirat relocated to a medium size warehouse, Sala Compresoarelor, similar in aspect and logistics to the Melkweg Oude Zaal in Amsterdam, situated in the Halele Carol complex, near one of Bucharest’s most beautiful parks (Carol I Park).Expirat Halele Carol is a venue in its right name, built and equipped to the highest standards, capable of hosting both indoor and outdoor events.Sala Compresoarelor can accomodate up to 500 guests, has access to a separate terrace and smokers area and offers all technical amenities required for hosting live concerts, DJ sets and events.The terrace is open during the warm season, is equipped with two standalone bars, offers seating and also serves food.
Expirat was born in Vama Veche in the summer of 2002. Since then, each season is different. Dance till sunrise – in the sand, on the beach, in the sea. Tequila, cold beers, good vibes and a summer to remember, each and every year.Daytime:Lounge music and mood, canopies, shade, coolness, cocktails, friends and stories. Wine and artisanal pizza too. Your oasis of relaxation. The place that makes your summer.Nightime:On fire! The place just transforms into massive dancefloor. People dancing until exhaustion. Shots, beers, long drinks and again, dance until the sun comes up. That’s when we all move into the sea. Literally.
