Alternative Clubbing in Belgrade
Belgrade is a home of many alternative clubs. Some of them are oriented towards pop, rock, gothic, but several of them are jazz clubs. Today, we present some cool venues that we like to visit.
Peron stands in the creative district of Savamala, near the city centre. Music program is focused on rock, indie, 80.s and pop. Currently, it’s one of the most popular clubs in the city. In this spot you can catch some of the local djs as Marko Gangbenger, Ognjen Krstic or some of the tribute bands as the Gift. Prices are decent and folks are friendly.

This is well known Belgrade club. It used to be situated in the building (ex church) alongside with Bitef alternative theatre, right next to Bajloni green market. This year club moved to Metropolita Petra street in Palilula. The focus is on local and foreign bands. During the summer Bitef moves to Kalemegdan fortress summer stage. Bitef also organizes MUSICOLOGY festival in July at the fortress.
Klub studenata tehnike is literary “everlasting club”. Iconic, alternative spot that began to work as a bar back in the 50’s. In the book of a local author, it’s described as “the club where the time has stop, in the country where everything has stopped”. It is located in the basement of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering near Vukov spomenik. Music selection ranges from Gothic and EBM to ex Yugoslav rock and pop. The crowd consists of students and high school pupils.
Povetarac is one of the coolest splavs/rafts on the river. Here you can catch the real summer vibe of Belgrade. It’s usually crowded so prepare yourself for that. It offers a variety of music styles, such as hip hop, drum & bass, mush ups, alternative….Crowd is both local and international. Beer is a most common drink. Cocktails are not trendy in this club.

Jazz Club Čekaonica
Čekaonica jazz club moved from the top of BIGZ building into Bitef near Bajloni market some time ago, since the BIGZ is sold. Now, it stands in Drinčićeva street in the historical neighborhood of Dorćol. Čekaonica is labeled as the “best jazz” club in town by many musicians and music lovers.
