I have no idea what the bar was called, although to be honest it doesn't really matter: Just pick any of the bars and you'll have an unforgettable evening soaking up the atmosphere. To sit under the Old Bridge with a cool beer as the sun sets on a scorching hot Balkan day is one of the most sublime experiences in the world. It absolutely cannot be missed.
Don't visit Mostar simply as a day trip - you'll miss the best of the city!
Small beers were 2 euros each, so not bad considering the view. Sit here to enjoy the late evening cool, and watch the divers jump into the river without the hustle. The best view of these guys is definitely from below. They should have a guy hustling the people by the river, he'd definitely have got some money from me!
My friend and I stopped off at Caffe Monkey for a few beers during a trip to Mostar in May 2007.
This lively cafe bar is located on the square of Trg Musala-Vila Neretva in Mostar's old town, close to the banks of the river.
We first popped in here for a beer early in the evening and then, after walking down to the centre of the old town and the famous bridge and finding that most places had closed for the evening, we returned for a few more beers.
The interior was crowded, with lots of people standing around the bar. The tables outside (about 15 - 20 of them) were also very busy, but we managed to find a free one and settled there for the evening. Loud music pounded out - first some local dance music and then as the evening wore on, the music alternated between U2 and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, one CD following the other in a predictable cycle!
The bar offered a large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, but we just stuck to the impressive local beers, with bottles of Sarajevsko costing 2 KM (approx 0.70 GBP) each.
The bar was open until midnight which is later than most places in Mostar's old town.
This cave is an Amazing surrounding for a nightclub.
The gold from Ali Babba is somewhere in the corner.
During the day you can go inside for a drink and relax.
In the evening the music goes louder ... ;-)
Dress Code: whatever
I noticed this sign for a theater in Stari Grad (the Old Town), but I'm not even sure that it's still an active theater. I never left my room after 7 pm the night I was in Mostar, so my idea of nightlife was reading in my icebox of a room.
*update* Pozorisna Kafana means "Theater Cafe", but I'm told that this place isn't too popular with the locals.
We attended a wedding in 'Labirint' which is on the banks of the river in the old town.
On the way the streets were absolutely packed with people! Definitely no shortage of things to do in the evening if you enjoy going out for a drink or two!
Great views (on a dry evening - as it was outside under a light canopy)across the river to the other half of town and the hills in the background.
Dress Code: It was of course a very special occasion so dress was smart!
In the little square on the West side of the old bridge, there's a handful of cafés and bars, open late, varying from relaxing to lively.
The energy with which the young people of Mostar enjoy themselves is an impressive sight in itself.
There are tons of little place to graba drink and a snack , intown near the bridege. Its a great way to mingle with the locals on a hot June evening. They are open late.
The "Irish Pub in Mostar" is sweet pub but, I think, not for night life. It looks very quiet. They don't serv the food, but the coffee is excellent.
