    Someone on theis board recommended a Bucharest tailor named "Negrila," near the Hotel Intercontinental. Finding this tailor has become both a quest, and a source of marital strife between my wife and I. Please, please, can anyone enlighten me about where this tailor is?

    Have you tried speaking to a manager or concierge at the hotel?

    my old office had a bespoke tailor on the ground floor, and wasn't too far from the interconti. I can't for the life of me remember the guys name, though. he might be the one you are looking for. I have heard good things about him, but I never used him.

    here is the address:

    UNION Business Center
    11 Ion Campineanu St.,
    Sector 1, Bucharest
    Romania


    it is right across from the archetecture school.

    Negrila is not near the Intercontinental, it's near the Athenee Palace Hilton, off of Cailea Victoriei and Episcopiei.

    I haven't been to Buchie in a couple of years, but have been to Negrila at least five times, so here's my best shot at directions --

    If you're standing outside of the Hilton and looking directly at the front door, turn right and start walking (away from Victoriei). After maybe 50-75 metres, you'll face a fork in the road with a narrow street going off to the right and left of a pie-shaped building.

    Go to the right and about three doors down on the left hand side is Negrila. I don't think there's a sign, but there should be some faded pictures torn from magazines that look to be 1970s vintage. Ignore these and walk in.

    If you live in Bucharesti, I can give you my friend's mobile and he'll give you better directions in the event this fails.

    sorry to be the source of marital strife.

    Mark
