The chronicles of a Hungarian and European infinite pub crawl

Pastis, a latin style mixture in the Bologna night

Pastis, Bologna - Pubtourist

I remained happily a captive of the Via Belvedere in Bologna, even after Fun Cool Oh and headed towards the Market Hall, where a spectacular and vibrate street night life was concentrated all over, on its stairs and in front of it, on the street.
