This place is the best! People speak English, they are kind and they want to help you with everything. The food and the beer are also very nice (and cheap of course). Seriously if you visit Tirana, you should definitely visit Shakesbeer (also that name (L))

For an American and British literature professor and poet on a Fulbright grant, how could I NOT be enticed by the name "Shakesbeer" and their slogan "two beers or not two beers?" When we were there, there was a sign outside and there was seating in a garden-like area with a cover on it. We enjoyed drinking Korca beer there... More

Shakesbeer was a bit hard to find, since they didn't have a visible sign on the outside. Inside it has a nice rustic bar/tavern feel, with wooden tables and walls. Based on its name, I was expecting it to have a wide selection of beer, but it seemed like they only had one type on tap and one in the... More

We have eaten a couple of times at Shakesbeer while visiting Tirana on business and always enjoyed the food, beer and atmosphere - especially when the weather is nice. It is located on a quiet side street within easy walking distance of the Sheraton and Rogner hotels. It is good for both lunch and dinner.

Burned chips and crap sausages. The service was not bad but not going back there. The old place was much better.

I had the mixed grill and it was the best I've ever had. The service is fantastic and the prices reasonable. Please note that they have moved to a new location. Will definitely go back!

Nice place, good location, the right place to have a beer with some food. I recommend to have a table in the part with the trees, favourite dish: pan with sausages, onions and peppers.

According to the staff the owners of Shakesbeer used to work in the UK and upon returning home set this place up to look and feel British without the "British Pub" feel. Took dinner and a few beers in Shakesbeers and was not disappointed one bit. Main menu is off the grill making all the meat clean and tasty. Beer... More
