Ideally situated, and surprisingly large inside. This has a 'local ' feel about it, so we tried the 'tasting' beers. Great fun, would visit again.

This place has a lovely, rustic atmosphere with bookcases adorning the walls. We had a couple of Lithuanian beers as recommended by the v helpful bar staff. They sell a few cheap and tacky (but nice) souvenirs too next to the bar.

The restaurant „Aula“is located in the vaulted mediaeval premises of Vilnius University, in the heart of the Vilnius old town, Pilies street, between the Cathedral and the town hall. We have made an attempt to preserve the traditions of old Lithuanian kitchen considering contemporary taste. As Lithuanians are proud of their traditional kitchen and beer, we provide a rich assortment of “Švyturys’ beer. All dishes in AULA are prepared only from fresh food; moreover, a cook can start preparing the meal only when a customer makes an order. If a customer prefers something special or cannot find what he wants in the menu, we can arrange an individual menu for him, however an individual order should be made a day before. A new-look menu of the restaurant “AULA“ continues old restaurant traditions formed since 1998 – an exclusive attention to the quality of products and freshness – new combinations of food products and forms of their representation are offered as well. The emblem of “Švyturys“ embassy guarantees that in restaurant “AULA“ there is always a great offer of qualitative food, its special presentation and healthy food. The main task of the embassy – to propagate a cultivate consumption of beer, to promote the understanding about good food, combination of beer with meals. On purpose of justifying the name of “Švyturys embassy“, most meals are offered with beer sauces, beer caramel or beer marinate used in their production. In the beer restaurant AULA a comfortable space for a small company can be found to have a business dinner. To have a good time when waiting for your order you are provided with a chance to enjoy the books on the shelves. During summer time a terrace in Pilies street and historical yard of Vilnius university is open for you. Furhermore, the summer terrase in Pilies street is available as well. All restaurant halls and gardens also have big TV sets or projectors were all live sport translations are shown. In the cellar of the restaurant you will find two cellar halls. The VIP hall is designed for 10-15 people company that prefers intimate atmosphere for a nice evening. The VIP hall is provided with modern video and sound equipment. The cellar hall is usually used for bigger entertainments because here there is enough room not only to sit at the table but also to dance. Henceforth restaurant „AULA“ will be adorable place not only for food, but also for music gourmets. In the cellar of the restaurant is located live music club “AULA Blues club”. Three music styles (jazz, blues and rock) are united in „AULA Blues club“. This project designed for people who like live music or want to relax in democratic atmosphere. Most of the concerts in "AULA Blues club" are for free.
