Night life. And dinner idea for tuesday

Hi all need your help asap

I stay at hotel slon now

It's Tuesday I like this city so far

But I want to go to place to meet locals and local women for just social

I am male in 30s travel on my Own solo right now

In desire for some social

I like quieter places vs a loud club

As able to talk better

I only know English as I have hard time to learn new languages

What' is good spot to hang for dinner or drink in old town etc

That I would be able to get attention of the local crowd

I assume the locals are friendly

Seems like it

Or am I wrong

Please suggest some places I can walk to that are good on Tuesday

Or unless u want to meet ne for dinner or drink

What can u recommend for

Most Slovenians are very friendly, however, it takes time before they accept you as a true friend. It may be difficult/weird/unusual to pick a man/woman on the street and invite him/her for a drink/dinner.

You may try to visit some of the places which are traditionally very relaxed and non-limiting, for example Metelkova mesto, club K4, Irish pub, Sax Pub, ...

How far walk from hotel slon

Now would I be too old to walk there

Is it a dangerous place

Should I worry about theft

Would I be ok going alone

It is very close to the railway station.

>How far walk from hotel slon

about 15 minutes

>Now would I be too old to walk there

No

> Is it a dangerous place

It's the traditional place of several Ljubljana's urban subcultures. If you have very strong traditional/family values you may not like some of the places (a gay bar for example, bars with alternative music, antiglobalists).

The place is definitely not dangerous, however, it may look a little dodgy at first. You should certainly take care of your belongings (as in every other place).

Yes

See:

You should use Google-translate to get a general idea.

Thanks for advice

I did go over there in evening but it was early like 6 or so and quiet did not seem bad after being there a bit

So may try for wednesdAy

What best time to go

What I am really looking for is place that sorta gets wild a little bit and is good spot to meet the locAl women

Is metelkovo still good for that or is it mainly gay and lesbian

Not that there is anything wrong with that

I like all people

What is good place to go thT is not a loud nightclub for wednesdY

Hey Mr R!

How was the transfer from Zagreb?

Hope your having a good one.

Dont forget to visit Nebotičnik (Skyscraper) if you're looking for a cool place to hang out and spread the good word!
