EXIT festival is an annual summer music festival that has been held at the fortress since its inception in 2001. It is staged annually since 2000 and usually lasts four days (since 2003). Since then, it has grown from the biggest festival in South-Eastern Europe, to one of the best in Europe. Garbage, Fatboy Slim, Franz Ferdinand, Morrissey, Billy Idol, Pet Shop Boys, The Cardigans, HIM, Robert Plant, The Prodigy, Beastie Boys, Lauryn Hill, Basement Jaxx, Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan are just a few names that have performed at EXIT festival.
Held in the picturesque setting of an 18th century fortress by the Danube, the festival quickly grew in stature and reputation. From its grass roots political beginnings, over to occasional problems with financing, and ending with wide praise it's lately receiving, Exit tries to stick to its initial mission of providing relevant entertainment to Serbian youth while also bringing pertinent social topics to the forefront.
Central house: Great during the day too!
A beautiful new bar that is staffed by the same great people that made the London Club such a massive success with the people of Novi Sad and visitors.
The London Club is closed. Sad news for lots of people (especially me because I met Alex, my wife there) but Central house is more than a replacement; it's bigger, better and a lot more stylish!
A lot of the appeal of this new bar is provided by the all the regulars from London Club who now cross the city centre to continue drinking in a bar that is, without doubt, the best run bar in Novi Sad.
Central house now also serve great food at great prices. You can get a sandwich with chips (fries) for less than 2 euros and a meal for about 3-4 Euros.
We tried the Risotto and the Spaghetti Carbanara which were both excellent.
They are open for early morning coffee from 7am and close when the last people leave - which wasn't me... Usually!
Dress Code: Relaxed but lots of people dress to impress...
Ritmo Latino: Latino club
A very pleasant place to start off the night or to have a nice cup of coffee during the day. The atmosphere is latin themed, but you can hear a lot of downtempo, chillout music in daytime. At night and on weekends it's DJ time.
Dress Code: No dress code... Wear whatever you like
Martha's Pub: Martha's Pub

the heart of the city: Kad hodaš...
When the weather's nice, you can go for an enjoyable evening walk round the city centre. You can meet a lot of people there, admire the architectural beauties, have a drink in one of the many restaurants surrounding the area...
Club Hedonist: One cool place
This is one of the places I like the most in Novi Sad mainly because it is different then all the other clubs in Novi Sad. The interior is designed to make you feel like you're in a fairytale.
Usually there are bands playing live, but it is not unusual to see a guest playing the piano as well.
Dress Code: Well, let's just say I wouldn't go there wearing sneakers ;)

Bastion: Very cool place
Was a very special place for me. When we arrived i had no idea where i was going...a normal disco maybe....But my first surprise was the location: situated out of the city center, within the famous Petrovaradin Fortress. My second and gratefull suprise was the entrance: long, straits and humid corridors that took you to the center of Earth (or it seems..hehe). At that time you can be afraid (oh my god! where i'm going?). But slowly you start to listen music....and then after some corridors with stairs, you arrive to a bigger and lluminated one. This is one of the 2 areas that Bastion has: the inside, the catacombs. Here you can listen a varied selection of retro genres. Outside, in the big terrace surrounded by big stone walls (we are in a fortress), you can listen techno music.
Is a popular place in Novi Sad, and is full of people. Don't miss that place, although you just go to see something so peculiar.
An advice: if you don't have car you'll need a taxi to arrive here. But there is a problem, some taxi drivers don't want to take you here cause the road is dirt road with lots of stones.
Dress Code: No dress code. I was there with shorts and a shirt.
Jelisavetin Bastion: Clubbing at the Fortress
Situated within the famous Petrovaradin Fortress, Jelisavetin Bastion is one of the best places to experience Novi Sad clubbing. The venue is divided into two areas - the indoors, which offers a varied selection of retro genres, and the terrace which is dedicated to latin, filtered, disco and similar genres of house music. What sets this place apart from others are the lengthy underground hallways - catacombs (katakombe), through which you enter the indoors part of the club - a wider set of adapted hallways, and the terrace, which is a huge adapted trench that nowadays serves as an open air discotheque that you enter when you have gone through all of the indoors.The atmosphere and feel of it is a miniature of the EXIT Festival Dance Arena. The club is open Thursdays-Saturdays from 11PM, but the best time to arrive is between 2 and 3 AM.
Modene street: Cafes and bars
Modene street (ulica Modene) is one of the most pouplar streets where the younger population (mostly )likes to hang out at night. The street is full of trendy cafes and bars, with the loud music on! But, if you're around during the day, it can be a nice place to have a drink and relax.
Dress Code: casual
