This restaurant is very much French themed as it is owned by three ex French Legionnaires, two Serbs and one Frenchman who is also the cook. The decor is French wallpaper with newspaper frontpages and oak panelled walls and flagstone floor. As well as serving food they brew their own beer, a red and a blond style. People come from all over Serbia to party here and at weekends you may have a problem getting in.
While I was there I sampled the red beer and it was excellent while the chef made my wife a crepe with honey, blackcurrents and cream......she's still counting the calories.
Dress Code: Serbia isn't big on formal dress code so as long as you don't look like a tramp you should be fine. I wouldn't get drunk and act like an idiot because in addition to the Legionnaires there is also security on site.
Address: Daniciceva 21, Kragujevac
Directions: Fairly central to the city centre. Not knowing the city too well I would stop and ask as most people will know of it.
Gnezdo spijuna (Spynest) and its secluded summer terrace is great nightlife venue, especially in the nights with live music.
Our favourites, band called Burns from Kraljevo, had performed during the summer of 2008 and on the terrace opening party, on the 18th of July 2009. This band of accordionist & guitarist & percussionist performe their very creative cover versions. Their repertoire consists of songs of Violent Femmes (Blister in the Sun, Gone Daddy Gone, Country Death Song – which, for some strange, unknown reason they do not perform in Kragujevac), Eurythmics (Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)…), Pink Floyd (Comfortably Numb…), Tanita Tikaram (Twist in My Sobriety), Talking Heads (Psycho Killer, Burning Down the House…), Billy Idol, The Doors, Elvis Presley… Another bend – Sevenforyou, with saxophone player & female singer performs often in Spynest.
Add some good beer, and the least what one gets is good, joyful night.
Address: Daniciceva 21
