A little secret about our tours:
Back in June, 2014, we started with a pub crawl that was organized as any other pub-crawl/bar-hopping around the world. The summer months were fine and things were good, but autumn came and things changed.
After a while we decided to switch to a free tour in the city center that ended in a bar. And that’s how our Yerevan Free Walking Tour developed throughout the years.
Now, switching forward in time, every summer we organize our traditional pub-crawl with a completely new approach. This is not the usual pub-crawl you’ve seen before, when you pay a certain amount of money and you get free shots in a few bars. It is tip based. You don’t pay the guide anything up ahead. You pay for your drinks (and food if you have any). You can tip the guide in the end. Even the name is changed from “Cheers! Yerevan Pub Crawl” into ” ‘Kenats‘ Pub Crawl Yerevan”.
Yes, you guessed it right!!! ‘Kenats’ (կենաց) in Armenian means ‘Cheers!’. It’s an old Armenian word, meaning ‘for life‘, literally. The crawl is organized by Vako, a veteran bar tender/bar owner in Yerevan, who started his career in Ayia Napa, Cyprus and then moved back to Armenia and changed the concept of bars in Yerevan and even ‘imported’ the word ‘pub‘ to the night life scene in the city.
The crawl starts at 8pm from a local bar, on Fridays and Saturdays only (June-Sept.). We do 3 bars/pubs and end in a club. We do a free shot of local Oghi in the first bar and free entrance to the club. We do drinking stories and traditions and try to sample other local drinks.
Please read all the details here and reserve afterwards on the contact page, mentioning ‘P‘ in the ‘which tour’ sections. We will contact you and give you the exact location of the first bar.
What time do we meet?
8 pm (20:00)
Every Friday and Saturday (June to Sept).
Where do we meet?
The exact location of the first bar will be given to you after you make a reservation. Reserve at least an hour before and please join on time.
Is there food in thr first bar?
Yes! Plenty of local home-made food for all budgets.
It’s highly appreciated if the hoppers have a good commend in English.
How long does it take?
3 to 4 hours, but of course you can stay as long as you want at the end (the club).
How many kilometers does it run?
Is it an easy crawl?
Yes. But it might get a bit tough in the end…That’s when the crawling starts )))
Do we do the pub crawl every weekend?
We do it if we have reservarions. Don’t come without reserving your spot.
How much is it?
Pub crawls are done on a payment basis, but our’s is different. Travelers don’t pay the guide anything up ahead, but tip him at the end. Travelers pay for their food and drinks. They get a free local Oghi shot in the first bar and free entrance at the club in the end.
