Haven’t you been at Ozone Skybar and Lounge in Sofia? You miss a lot! Currently this is the newest and super cool place in Sofia! Why do I praise it so much? Because it combines many things into one that placescases.com values.
Ozone Sky Bar and Lounge is famous for its wonderful 360 degree view of Sofia, delicious cuisine, super good service, comfort, amazing cocktails! Located in Grand Hotel Millenium, which recently opened in the heart of the capital.
…. The view from so high towards Sofia is amazing – from one place you can see the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, then, the National Palace of Culture in the palm of your hand with its playful fountains, and skaters and bikers are like little nimble dots around them. You can also look over Vitosha mountain and watch the colorful butterflies of the paragliders. Your gaze stops only in the far mountains in good weather;
…. The look of the cocktails is ingenious and impressive;
…. The food is arranged perfectly on the plates;
…. All staff at the bar and hotel are wearing masks and helmets, all requirements for Covid-19 are met perfectly;
…. The bar has an indoor area and two huge terraces suitable for events, with amazing panoramic views, a DJ platform with a dance floor in front of it.
…. Polite service, with a smile that is felt behind the masks;
…. The comfort of the pillows on the wooden podium in front of the windows of a terrace overlooking the center of Sofia.
…. Great music – Colplay, cool arrangements in dance style of Alphaville, Joe Dassin and many others. Really cool!

…. The exotic aromas of cocktails. There are also three selections with ingredients from Japan. In one of them, Elixir of Life, green tea gives a slight nuance to algae.
…. Apricot rakia in Bulgarian Spirit cocktail – wonderful!
If you have ordered something simple, and it is insanely tasty, then you are dealing with a very high class kitchen. This is exactly the case in Ozone.
…. The Chef of the hotel and all restaurants is George Ivanov. You know him from Shades of Red in Grand Hotel Sofia. His cuisine is of high level, originating from the French gastronomy, and his experience includes Michelin stars restaurants;
…. The compliment of bread sticks – bread chips, super crunchy and very tasty, including one with activated charcoal – pure black for contrast;
…. Shrimp tempura, perfectly cooked – crispy breading, inside tender texture of shrimp;
…. Delicious sea bass fillet with sautéed vegetables and olives in Mediterranean style – I really liked it;
…. The salads are beautiful and very tasty;
…. Sushi – they have with eel, which you don’t find very often in restaurants;
… .. The cocktails are masterfully prepared by nimble bartenders who know their job and, on top of everything, form an original vision;
…. Ozone cocktail – the signature of the bar, especially with its impressive bubble, which hides an infusion of citrus below.

I like a place and I don’t have enough of it. This was the case with Constantinoff on Vitoshka Street, which I have visited plenty of times already. Ozone Skybar and Lounge is my new favorite place in Sofia now. I can’t wait to try the brunches there. Expect more news from the 5D Sensograph.
