    Cocktail-bar: Baobab

    by ivanab Written Jul 4, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At summer, most of people in Zagreb go out at Jarun lake,around which there are many nightclubs,cocktail bars...It's always crowded wherever you go. Most of the people choose Baobab; it's one of the fanciest places to go. Music is mostly r'n'b and house, drink is pretty expensive, but the entrance is free. Nevertheless, it's a good place for dancing and fun.

    Dress Code: Dress to be seen and to impress.

    Lake Jarun

    by roza_hr Updated Sep 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the last few years the lake Jarun has become a hot spot for nightlife in Zagreb. While there's more of the live music in the centre, there's a constantly growing number of night clubs, discos and bars at the lake, Piranha, Baobab and Aquarius being the most popular. They're open usually from 10 pm to 4 am, but people only start arriving after midnight. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays are the best days to go out, whereas it could be quite empty for the rest of the week.

    Dress Code: You'll probably notice people like to dress up for such places, although I can't really see why. I don't think there is an official dress code, although you'd probably have to dress up a bit as well, at least some jeans and probably no trainers.

Its a lounge, that says it all. Its got a variety of Cocktails and very nice coffee if you want to go there in the morning. On the little picture you can see where this place is located.

    On the entrance is normal bar. Stairways lead to the "basement" of "Funk club" which is a place with DJ, people are dancing, sitting and drinking. Club is very small but sometimes can be good program and good music!

    Dress Code: As you wish!

    "Hole In One": Pubs

    Hole in One

    Very new and very trendy, it's nicely located in the centre of the town. It boasts a superb menu that will have you shrieking "screw Britain" for the way you realize you don't have to be there to eat your pub favourites.

    Dress Code: Open 09:00 - 23:00

    Night-club: Papaya Club

    by graeme83 Written Feb 6, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the recommendation of a bar maid from a bar in the town we headed to a club called Papaya. The music was good, the dancefloor was full and the bar staff performed tricks that Tom Cruise in Cocktail would have been proud of.

    Dress Code: No dress code. 20kuna entry on Saturday night

    Pubs-->Londoner

    by Nykaenen Updated Feb 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nyk��nen, Goranius and non-VTer Berna

    Londoner at Kaptol Centar is one of the "in" nightlife spots. It attracts slightly older population = 25 and up. However, I've noticed more and more younger people there--the problem with all good bars nationwide! Ironicaly, you'll find notice "Admittance under 23 not allowed" but when you look at the faces, no way many of them could be even 20.

    I like Londoner for several reasons:
    --> bigger than most other bars (still gets crowded)
    --> good choice of Belgian beer (dark Leffe!!!)
    --> good music after midnight with lots of Croatian stuff; you'll find many people dancing

    Prices?
    Entrance is free except on weekends after 20 h when they charge 20 kn (1 euro=7,5 kn). You get a receipt for those 20 kn and can use it to pay for drinks.
    Drinks are as expensive as at other popular bars (Leffe 18 kn, Campari-Fanta 22 kn, etc.).

    Dress Code: Come as you are, but not on weekends!

    Papaya: Open air club

    by Imbi Updated Nov 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My visit to this night club was very interesting. when I decided to go to Papaya I did not know that it could be very difficult to get there. I got there after climbing at least thousands of steps (joking, it is situated on the hill so you need to be fit to get there). It has a lovely location as you could view the city from top. Club is reasonable and it is one of the popular place for youngsters. Open air bar and dance floor was a good experience. Music was not bad either. I highly recommend this place but only in summer.

    Here you could see people enjoying music.

    ST. TROPEZ 1 & 2: BEST SUMMER GOING OUT SPOTS

    by Nykaenen Written Nov 25, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St. Tropez 1 & 2 are both located at lake Jarun and function as bars during the day. While St. Tropez 2 serves drinks until midnight, St. Tropez 1 turns into night club and the party extends into late night hours... I highly recommend both - the No. 2 because they have best coffee at the lake area and No. 1 for great atmosphere + wonderful view of Zagreb city lights in the distance.

    VT members Imbi & Nykänen at St. Tropez 2

    Dress Code: Some dress casual, some fancy (even during the day).

    Jabuka: Alternative places 3- Jabuka

    by loonytoon01 Updated Feb 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another hidden gem for alternative people: GK Jabuka (jabuka=apple). A club that's been running for longer than anyone can remember. A small place that's always packed, laid back and fun. Luna Park is on Fridays and Night of Faith and Devotion on Saturdays. And as you could probably guess from the names of these nights- it's mostly 80's-90's music ranging from Blondie to Sisters of Mercy. There are various "tribute" nights as well.

    Night-club: Fontana

    by Marina_tom Updated Jul 4, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This club is famous cause of Sebian folk music. Two years ago was a shooting so you never know what you can expect there. Prices are quite high. I don't like that kind of music, I don't like that club. I was once there and hope never again! Other famous folk clubs in Zagreb are Pasha and Ludnica (I don't like them also and the situation is the same like in Fontana-the same people, the same atmosphere). 4th of July 2007; new explosion happened in the club.

    Dress Code: Ladies-short dresses, very tight tops, hills, everything shiny
    Men-skirts, jeans, shoes

    Club InBar and club Roko are near Sava. Inbar is a small place, but usually with a huge crowd, mainly on weekends, music is intoxicating, they usually play english songs, Club Roko on the other hand often play Croatian songs, a big place though, and a larger crowd indeed.....

    Pirana, Acquarius...: Clubs on Jarun lake

    by blusky Written Nov 20, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most visited destination for nightlife is defintely Jarun lake, especially during the summer. There are Pirana, Macao, Gallery and some more...all kinds of music are available there and during the weekends places are crowded.
    Every club have also some programe during the week.
    Acquarius is very famous discoteque which was place of so many famous DJs so...do you need anything else...
    As for the type of people who are going there...well...most peopleare in their 20ese...from 21-29, but as I told you, it much depends on a club and the day...weekends are more crowded with 25 years old and lower...

    As for Gallery...be aware that entering there might be a big problem becuase they almost exclusively speak about "reservations" so...it's very likely you won't get in...if you're a foreigner...you may try your luck...anyway...there arealso other clubs in case you won't get in ...

    Dress Code: Generally you can wear whatever you want, but some of the clubs can make you problems if you wear sneakers, so if you want to be sure...try some other type of shoes
