  • Armani bar: Classical Rock'n'roll

    by akan Updated Mar 12, 2013

    Rock'n'roll fans in Zagreb gather in the Armani bar on Saturday evenings to dance at the music performed by the Cadillac band and/or their selected guests. Comming there is most suitable combination after a dinner in Tkalciceva street or anywhere in downtown Zagreb.
    On a second Saturday in a month the band plays on a different location.
    Armani bar is on Štrossmeyerovo šetalište ( Strossmeyer promenade) just above Trg bana Jelacica.
    Entrance 4 Euros, beer 2 Euros..

    Not only that croatians have a good sense of music, but they also are good singers, no matter it's about rock or smthing else.
    The place gets more and more crowded towards midnight, as the beer expensier. However, funny atmosphere. U're expected to pay for liquids gettin' in (at the bar) as well as for them gettin' out (toilet).

    B.P.Club

    For those of you who are Jazz lovers, I strongly recommend this club, which is situated right in the heart of the town.
    It is a masterful pre-party spot, you cannot help but be thrilled by by the chilled out mood of jazz and mirrors that capture every angle.
    B.P.Club is known for the famous musicians from all over the world that wander in and out.

    Purgeraj: live music in center

    by lana82 Updated Dec 1, 2005

    This a club situated in the Ribnjak park in the strict center. During weekends there's pretty much always live music. Lots of people form Tkalciceva go to Purgeraj when bars close there so it can be overcrowded. Last year or so it has been opened all day long so it is nice to have a cup of coffee there when it is warm enough to sit outside, some nice freshair in the middle of the city.

    Bout the name of the place: ppl of zagreb are also called Purgeri so that's why it is Purgeraj.

    Named Tvornica= factory, the club opened nearly 10 years ago. Sometimes big names of music play there, sometimes small local bands, sometimes there is theatre or some fashion show. Every weekend something is happening, if there are no concerts there is different music playing, techno, 80's croatian music... This is a bigger venue then the other clubs in the city. Prices are average. During the day part of it is a cafe.

    Little club of the faculty of electrotechnics where various concerts take place. If there's no concert it's diff music playing, check what's on what day. It is pretty small club, drinks are more than cheap, always plenty of young people.

    its an alternative club. often has great concerts, local bands and international. the program can vary a lot so u better check what's on the day u go(program:http://www.mochvara.hr/program/program.php) . drinks r cheap, friendly atmosphere, when warm there's an open terrace and it is practicaly on the bank of the sava river so u can take a walk or sit on the benches overlooking river.

    there's often a crazy 80's music party where u can dance like crazy :)

    Sax!: Jazz/blues/rock live in Sax

    by roza_hr Updated Jun 3, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    picture taken off their website

    Sax! aka The Croatian Musicians' Club, is a well known place for live music with a broad repertoire, including demo bands as well as many prominent Croatian musicians. It's essentially a jazz club, although rock nights Fridays and Saturdays are very popular. It's open every day of the week except Sundays and Mondays I think.
    Tuesday is a rock/blues night, on Wednesdays some of Croatian greatest jazz musicians can be heard, soul night on Thursdays, and Fridays and Saturdays are dedicated to rock.

    Basically it's a relaxed place where you sit and enjoy the great performance. It can get very lively though, especially on the weekends, with people dancing, singing and enjoying themselves.

    I'd definitiely recommend excellent jazz performances by Folkestra and Sick Swing Orchestra on Wednesdays. Crybabies, a very good rock cover band, are on every other Saturday. They're quite popular so try to get in early, ie around 9, as it might get too crowded later.

    Admission depends on the gig but it's never more than 30 kn (EUR 7) and its usually free during the week.

    Opening hours: 8 pm to 2 am.

    Unfortunately they close for the summer break from mid June til September.

    Dubravko Vorih and his fretless bass

    As of recently, this cafe/bar has become my favourite spot for a night out. Somewhat scruffy looks are compensated by the super friendly atmosphere, excellent live performances (country on Thursdays, rock on Fridays and Saturdays, blues on Sundays) by great musicians; and, of course, the ultimately prevailing argument, 9-12 kuna Velebitsko beer. It's dark, it's full of smoke, it has benches and sofas, a pool table and a jukebox full of rock; in one word, it's a perfect hangout place.

    Gigs start at 9 and the entry's free!

    Opening hours: 9 am - 1 am (every day)

    Happy Hour: 8-9 pm, 9 kuna Velebitsko

    Dress Code: Trust me, NOBODY here cares. This is the antipode of all places stuck-up posh and trendy. You can see all kinds of people here, both young and old, dressed up and dressed down (usually the latter); whatever you're wearing is great, as long as you're having fun.

  • Melin (Monroe): Alternate type

    by VernonA Written Jun 26, 2003

    I went there with another guy, a girl heard us speaking Engkish and invited us to her table. There were about 5 of them, all really friendly and all spoke English to us and each other the whole time. They gave us plenty of tips, people to see in Dubrovnik. We had a really cool time with them. It was a great intro to the people of Zagreb, very friendly, not just them, but most people I met. Didn't seem to meet any VTers though, even though I tried.

    'SWAMP'-or in croatian...

    by gorky9hr Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    'SWAMP'-or in croatian 'MOCVARA' - one of the places i almost regulary go to. It's located by the river Sava, and every person that looks like (s)he's between 18-30, and is NOT dressed into Calvin Klein, Versace or Armani suit should be able to help you find it :)
    This is actually some sort of a club- every day something different is going on: concerts of (not very famous) bands across the world (DUB, ROCK, POP, ACID JAZZ, FUNKY, REGGAE, TRANCE, AMBIENTAL, etc.), punk night (on saturday, and i myself don't find it very entertaining;), movie/cartoon night (watching movies that cannot be found in videostores or in cinema-art movies, documentray movies or so), theater-in-mocvara night, drinking night (haha, actually every night is a drinking night there!:)

    THE BEST night to have a good time there in my opinion is definitely FRIDAY. If you find a program somewhere, and it says that 'MOOVARE' is on friday, that definately means you're gonna have a good time!

    Dress Code: absolutely NO dress code- YOU CAN REALLY GO THERE DRESSED LIKE A MONSTER FROM A SWAMP, just as dressed in a rennesaince dress- nobody could care less.

    The great way to see how much imagination people who go there have- you should come there during a party for HALOWEEN- last time i saw a guy dressed like a chicken dancing with a guy dressed like a fairy! IT WAS AWSOME!
