If you’re looking to escape the cluttered Centrul Vechi and get some perspective, head south to Timpuri Noi, a neighbourhood that’s poised to become one of the new major creative areas of the city within the next years. Set atop Industria Bumbacului, a revamped industrial compound home to the amazing NOD Makerspace, Deschis has one of the most enjoyable - and biggest - rooftops in Bucharest, overlooking the Dâmbovita river. A kid-friendly spot with its own sandbox, Deschis sometimes hosts outdoor screenings, and can become pretty crowded (with creative folks) when the weather gets nice. The terrace is a killer spot for drinks, but if you come for the burgers, make sure you book beforehand. Like often in Bucharest, the space fills up in a matter of minutes. Finding the place can be a bit tricky as there’s no sign, but just climb up the stairs at 160 Splaiul Unirii and head for the skies. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch one of the best sunset views on a hot summer day.
