Bars in Belgrade are not just places where people go out and have fun, but also everyday meeting points for the city’s dwellers. Almost every neighborhood has its cafés, where, regardless of the day of the week,local residents come to meet with friends and spice up the workday with a cup of coffee or a glass of their favorite drink.
You can never run out of places to go out in Belgrade. Popular bars and cafés are grouped in several of the city’s districts, such as Dorćol, in Karadjordjeva Street and Strahinjića Bana Street; in Vračar, near the Church of Saint Sava and in Nevesinjska Street;in New Belgrade and Zemun, where the famous rafts – splavovi,or floating river bars and clubs are found on the banks of the Sava and the Danube, etc.
Although rakia (rakija) is the national alcoholic drink and we recommend you try it, either as an appetizer or during a night out, Belgrade also promotes its wine culture. One of the reasons for this is the large number of local producers.Places especially designed for wine tasting are located across the city. Beside wine, you can drink some fine beers in Belgrade or try local craft beers, increasingly popular in the past few years. For an afternoon break, we recommend local (also called domestic) coffee with Turkish delight.
