Overview

At Checkpoint Charlie we have friends, not customers and as cliché as it may sound this might actually be one of the cases this saying is true. There is always that feeling in the air of cosiness, warmth and spontaneity, that amazing sensation of HOME. And it is not only in the careful and wide selection of spirits and beers, good food and great music. It is that compelling atmosphere, the joy, the noise, the laughter and the friendly service in the wooden decor with touches of history and time! So don't hesitate to push the door. You can find us in the heart of the Blloku area and we are open Monday-Sunday from 17.00.

Nice atmosphere and the music selection was great. A lot of people there but they are not smoking inside, so it was pleasantly crowded. The finger food was good too.

We were here last Thursday night (around 10.30 pm) and found the bar nearly empty. This was not really a problem, because the interior of the bar is quite nice. It did however show us how their so-called stock market prices are totally fake. Checkpoint...More

Definitely the place where I enjoyed Tirana's nightlife the most: good music, amazing atmosphere, really nice staff and cheap beer. A must for pub lovers seeking a place where to drink a beer listening to good old rock'n'roll and dancing if they feel like. Highly...More

Really good atmosphere, several kinds of beer on drought. Very unique is the pricing strategy, where every 10 minutes the prices are changing :D this venue is also good for week days, when you can still find some nice crowd in there.
