I am back with a new "places to visit in Cluj" article, this time featuring Joben bistro, which is one of the coolest and most exquisite places in town! (In Romanian, the term "joben" literally translates to "tophat")
 If you are into steampunk pubs or fashion, this is a place you cannot miss if you are ever in Cluj! I think the photos speak for themselves, I mean I can't even begin to describe how amazing every little detail is. I was amazed the first time I went here and two years later, I am still amazed. 

The craftsmanship put into all the designs is brilliant, you can see that the people who designed the interior are filled with creativity and fun, quirky ideas! 
 Also, the food is great! From fancy appetizers to burgers and fresh salads and let's not forget the unique cocktails selection! It's absolutely a delight.

Take a look and the photos for a small glimpse of this gorgeous place!

 Have a relaxing weekend guys!

Two Summer Must Haves

 I don't know about you, but I am roasting like a chicken whenever I step outside, the weather is crazy hot! Indoors is no better, but at least my skin won't get burned. I really need a SPF 200! 
The good thing about this outfit is that these shorts are made of the lightest, softest cotton and honestly, it feels like you are walking in your underwear and sometimes in the Summer, that is all you wish to do. 
So, a pair of comfy, easy-breezy shorts like this can save you during hot days, and my other recommendation is the on going, off the shoulder tops which are so feminine and so in trend right now. Plus, you'll get a natural tan without marks around the neckline, because don't we all hate ugly tan marks on our skin, am I right?

Enjoy the rest of your week guys!

The secret wine bar

Happy Monday everyone! If you are not a "Monday person" like 89% of Earth's population, then keep on reading this post, maybe you'll feel inspired or leave with a smile on your face.

Have you ever encountered a place that was capable of charming you so hard that you couldn't just not think about it for days or weeks? Such a place is here in Cluj, I can't take the credit of finding it, but ever since I went here for the first time, I was struck by this simple idea: "I need to take photos here!" It is too beautiful not to photograph, not just for me, but I really wanted to show it to you as well. 

 This gorgeous place called Sax, it's a jazz wine bar, so you can only drink wine of all kinds, the bottles are exposed on two big walls and the offer is outstanding, so it can be a little overwhelming if you are not an expert in wines - much as myself. The kind gentlemen who run the place will tell you the story of the wines they offer and make suggestions according to your preference. Pretty classy, right? 

 The idea is that this place is quite secret, I can't tell you where it is, apart from the fact that it is located in Cluj, Romania, if you are in the city, you can visit their Facebook page, give them a call, make a reservation and ask for the entry password. Yes, there is a password - I told it was secret! 
 The fact is that the owner wanted to create this place for private gatherings and while they did that, they wanted to offer a taste of their wines and music (oh, their jazzy music is just a true delight!) to other people as well. Therefor, gradually, people started to find out about this place from mouth to mouth, much like the old folk tales, and that is something I find to be so cool! 

 Scroll down for more photos and I hope you will be charmed as I was!

They even have a little terrace filled with flowers, such a gem right? 
 Aren't the furniture and decorations amazing? Every little piece was refurnished and there are so many tiny details that can get your attention, you just need to look. The style is so glamorous and the colors! Aren't the colors just enchanting? 

 And you can't even imagine how lovely it is during the night time, when both rooms are filled in a romantic mood with dim light, it just feels really cozy, as if you are visiting a close friend's home.

 If you are a vintage and jazz lover, this is a place you simply cannot miss! 

 Hope you enjoyed this article as much as I did creating it.
