Update: 2nd Floor is permanently closed.
One of the coolest and most unique bars and concepts in Yerevan is the 2nd floor. The bar is part-bar, part-restaurant, and part-vinyl store. The concept is so different from anything else that exists in Yerevan and it is worth a go if you’re visiting the city.
One of the best things about the 2nd Floor is that they sell Dargett craft beer there. You can sit and enjoy a quiet lunch with a beer or you can arrive later in the evening when the place is brimming with locals and awesome music.
Either way, it is definitely a go-to spot for beer lovers and those who like innovative, hip places.
