Drinking culture is big in Belgrade. The city is a home to many different and interesting cocktail bars, pubs, kafanas, and coffee shops. In this guide we have selected mainly cocktail bars and a few pubs that we enjoy visiting all year round.
This is one of the most famous cocktail bars in Belgrade. Bartenders need to finish 3 year training course before they start working and preparing cocktails for the guests. Cocktail selection is very big and you can just speak with a bartender name your favorite flavors and let them do the rest. Bar Central is located in the heart of the city, in 59 Kralja Petra St.
Kavkaz is our favourite bar on Dorćol. Nice place for drinking coffee during the day and whisky and rakija during the evening. Music selection is really good also. Kavkaz stands on the corner of Cara Uroša and Gospodar Jevremove streets in downtown Belgrade.
Another Belgrade classic when it comes to preparing cocktails. High quality drinks and professional service. Kultura bar stands in 4 Kralja Milutina St. so don’t hesitate to drop by while discovering Belgrade.
Kaste is a new lovely indoor cocktail bar situated in the old building next to McDonald’s on Slavija square, in 4 Deligradska St. With cute vintage interior, crackling vinyl sound and interesting selection of cocktails prepared by experienced Italian bartender stands out as must visit place in Belgrade.
This is a very first shot bar in the city. During the day you can drop by to chill, however in the evening it turns to a real warm up bar. Bar offers more than 100 types of cocktails, from which around 70 are shoots. Come and visit this bar in 7 Gavrila Principa St.
Kaldrma is another favorite bar on Dorćol, situated in the bohemian quarter of Skadarlija. But don’t be fooled by its mainstream location, because this is a favorite hunt of locals. Has a nice music selection and often local DJs play music. Drop by to Kaldrma for a glass or two of Hennessy.
Brand new bar popped up in the trendy district of Cetinjska St. on Dorćol. It’s spacious and comfortable with nice music selection. Good place for drinking beer and rakija and warm up for your night out.
Favorite hunt of Belgrade hipsters. In this one you won’t find cocktails but you can drink some local craft beer or home-made rakija. Local Djs are guests so it’s often crowded.
Samo Pivo in Serbian stands for Only beer. So drop by 13 Balkanska St. if you want to drink and taste some new beer flavors.
Trendy and chic night bar in the already famous Savamala. During the working days it works until 1 am and during the weekend the real party kicks off. Guests are Serbian Djs and cocktails are served.
