Atelje 212: Avant-Garde
The 1st premiere in this theatre was Goethe's 'Faust',directed by famous Mira Trailovic. This took place on 12 November 1956 in the small hall with 212 seats in the Borba building. It was soon followed by Beckett's 'Waiting for Godot' and many other avant-garde plays.
Since then Atelje 212 had over 300 premiers and its actors performed successfully in our country and across Europe, Asia and America.
The sculpture on the left represents Zoran Radmilovic as Alfred Jurry's Ubu Roi. The 2.5m high sculpture was made in 1991 by Zvonko Novakovic.
Dress Code: smart clothes
Sargon is a club built inside a cave by the Kalemegdan fortress. It's always packed and the cues to get in are massive, but it's worth the wait. It's got great music, good drinks, an electric atmosphere, and the most stylish crown around!
It is not a nightlife spot, indeed. It is a coffee shop, the one which is located in Nusiceva street and coffee shop and restaurant the one in Masarikova street.
If it happens to you to be in Nusiceva street, which is very possible (it is in the very center of Belgrade), have a coffee here. If you manage to find free space because it is always full.
Try the hot chocolate (the best in the city) and the cheesecake.

Sunday night drinking: I'm sure its great at the weekend
I met some cool people off the couch surfing website for a drink, and their friends and other couch surfers
they met me at a bar called Bar Udruzenjee at No. 7 Despota Stefana Street (formerly 29November st) right in the centre.
Its hard to find and the doorway entrance looks like you are entering an apartment block, but head downstairs and you will find the bar.
Its quite small but has a nice atmosphere
Beer is 175 Dinar (£1.70)
This was on a sunday and it was quite quiet but am sure the city buzzes on a weekend
another bar we tried but was closed was Idiot, meant to be good.
For info, a 500ml beer in a supermarket is 43dinar (43p) but they also charge for the bottle and you get the money back when you return the bottles

akademija: nightlife in Belgrade
After it was first opened in 1961, at the beginning of 1980s, the famous AKADEMIJA, Visual Arts Faculty Students’ club, the centre aimed at concentration and creative work of alternative, artistic, music and intellectual scene, acquired a significant cultural status and an important role in creation, promotion and affirmation of urban sensitivity and cosmopolitan spirit in Belgrade. The open, dynamic and uncompromisingly experimental programme concept resulted in authentic events which launched AKADEMIJA out of local setting and help it create a strong impact upon articulation of the alternative movement in a wider Yugoslav context. The Club shortly acquired significant international reputation through presentations of numerous artistic projects and frequent guest performances of foreign bands.

nightlife in Belgrade
Techno exploded here in the 1990s. The scene is in constant flux, and there are many one-off events at special venues, so it’s a good idea to ask around. Follow the crowd and you shouldn’t go wrong. There are several excellent year-round clubs underneath the Kalemegdan Citadel, like Andergraund (Pariska 1A, 328 2526). The party ratchets up in the summer, when no one in town seems to sleep. More than a dozen boat clubs docked in New Belgrade are packed all night; you can pick your music and crowd. Exile (Savski kej, no phone) and Blaywatch (Kej Oslobodjenja Bb, 319 1228) are old standards.
Nighlife in Belgrade is something that every tourist is fond of. You can find a wide spectar of clubs and bars that work every night. Serbians are friendly and not a hard - working nation, so you don't have to wait for weekends to go out!
The girls in Belgrade are absolutely the most beautiful you can find in this part of Europe. The bartenders are always in a good mood and love to get people drunk. Cover charges are never too much either.
Splavovi (restaurants and clubs that are on boats and water) are a great place to spend warm summer nights in Belgrade. The atmosphere is great and the music has many ranges. Mostly in clubs you will hear Serbian Turbofolk, Trance, House, and Hip Hop.
Recently, according to several local, regional and international news magazines, papers and news agencies, notably The New York Times and CNN , Belgrade has become quite the regional night life hub, boasting cheap drinks and accommodation in comparison to the rest of Europe and the regional capitals like Zagreb, Budapest, and even Athens. Weekend fun-seeking visitors from Europe and most notably from Croatia and Slovenia revere Belgrade as "the-place-to-be", citing friendly atmosphere, great clubs and bars, cheap drinks, language they can understand and lack of restrictive night life regulation.

pomozite drugovi: "Stavi pravu stvar na pravo mjesto"
Kad' te napadne krecana nema pomoci, moš' se napinjat' kol'ko god hoceš al' mrak ostaje mrak. Ovaj lijepi i ugodni kafic nalazi se na cosku ulice koja vodi prema stražnjem dijelu konaka knjegine Ljubice. Ko zna naziv nek' se javi.
Savladala me žed i želja za kafom pa sam eto ovdje napravio kratku pauzu. Kafic izgleda jako dobro a mala terasica ispred još i bolje. "Donosilo" je jedan ljubazan decko koji mi je preporucio ovu ledenu kavu pa rekoh, ajd' da probam. A kava mrak, u Zagrebu bi s time napravio pomor. Ne bi se mogao toga nakuhati koliko bi rulje navalilo. Svaka cast i kak' se veli kod mene doma, bilježim se sa štovanjem.
The Three Carrots Irish Pub: Belgrade's first Guinness pub
My friend and I visited the Three Carrots Irish Pub one evening during a visit to Belgrade in May 2007.
This Irish bar, the first Guinness pub in Belgrade according to a sign on one of the walls, first came to my attention when I was researching our Belgrade trip on the Internet. I read an article which suggested that the bar’s unusual name came about due to a mistranslation. Apparently, the owners of the bar had wanted to name it after the famous Irish symbol, the shamrock (or three leaf clover). However, confusion arose somewhere along the line and three leaf clover became “three carrots”. I don’t know if this story is true, but it was enough to convince me that we should pay a visit to this quirky place.
The Three Carrots is located on Kneza Milosa, a side street off the main road of Kralja Milana, and is 5-10 minutes walk north west of Slavija Square.
The pub’s interior consists of a large wooden bar, with a handful of wooden stools pulled up to it, and two or three large tables in separate cubicles next to the bar. Also on the ground floor, there is an area with a dozen or so 2 seater tables, next to a spiral staircase that leads to a large upstairs seating area.
There are a few items of Irish memorabilia (flags, shirts, Guinness sponsored mirrors…) and the wall opposite the bar features a rather elaborate Guinness decoration featuring the claim to be the “First Guinness Pub in Belgrade”.
Music plays in the background, while a couple of TV screens were showing highlights of the day’s football action from across Europe.
While the pub offers Guinness on tap, we preferred to stick to the local beer. The waitress brought our draught MB Pils beers (115 Dinars / 1.00 GBP for 500ml) to our table, and re-appeared each time she could see that we were nearing the end of our drinks to ask if we wanted another one. It would have been rude to decline, and it was the final night of our Balkans trip, so we stayed until closing time, which may have been about 2am (but I can’t promise that to be the case!).
Dress Code: No dress code apparent.
A friendly Irish bar in the centre of Belgrade. Recommended!
Plato Café: A very laid back cafe in Belgrade
My friend and I visited Plato Café one Saturday evening during our visit to Belgrade in May 2007.
It was our first night in Belgrade and we were looking for a café with outdoor tables where we could enjoy a cold beer on a very warm and humid spring evening. We had earlier visited La Revolucion Cuban bar, but all its outdoor tables were occupied and it was too warm to sit inside. So, we crossed the pedestrianised Kneza Mihailova and spotted Plato’s red umbrellas and spacious outdoor seating area close to Studentski Trg (Students Square).
This incredibly relaxed café/bar was busy, but not completely full. However, all of the comfortable reclining seats (similar to those you would find on a beach) were filled with smart young locals, so we settled for a standard table and chairs!
We didn’t see the interior of Plato, but we could see from where we were sat that there was a restaurant area and a book shop forming part of the varied Plato complex. I read an online review of Plato which states that the restaurant serves excellent Italian food and that live Jazz music takes place on certain nights of the week. My personal memories of Plato will be of a very laid back café, feeling more like a Mediterranean beach bar than a café in the heart of a major capital city – that’s the sort of relaxed, friendly atmosphere we found there.
We enjoyed several bottles of the refreshing local Jelen Pivo beer (119 Dinars / 1.00 GBP per 330ml bottle) and unwound after a hectic day of travelling up from Sarajevo and sightseeing in Belgrade.
A very relaxed café in the heart of Belgrade. A great place to unwind with a cold beer amongst a laid back, friendly crowd. Very highly recommended!
La Revolucion: Lively Cuban bar in Belgrade
My friend and I visited La Revolucion for a beer one evening during a visit to Belgrade in May 2007.
This lively Cuban bar is located on Uskočka bb, close to the main pedestrianised street of Kneza Mihailova.
There are dozens of tables outside, but on this humid Saturday evening they were all full when we arrived, so we were forced to take a seat inside. Live Latin music was being played downstairs, with the door open in order that those outside could benefit from it, so we went upstairs and sat at a small wooden table in a room decorated with Che Guevara and Fidel Castro photographs and other memorabilia common to Cuban bars all over the world.
Sadly, the interior was uncomfortably hot on this sticky spring evening, so we drank our Weifert beers (114 Dinars / 1.00 GBP for 330ml) and left to find a café with outdoor tables available.
A very busy Cuban bar with live music…but not enough outdoor tables!
The banks of the rivers: Rave reviews

It is easy to find someting to suit everyone down there, the night life in Belgrade has been getting rave reviews in the press lately and it seems there is something to suit everyones needs.
