Top nightlife in Zagreb, Croatia


If you are planning to visit Zagreb, Croatia, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to nightlife in this vibrant city.

Some of the best places to go after dark in Zagreb include:

Retro Café & Night Bar, Savka cesta 180

The works of Serbian realist Domanović balance playfully with those of Dante under the bar while ‘bugger off’ serves in place of a ‘closed’ sign. Witty and gritty, Retro feel permeates the cushiony window seats and group tables in this intimate space subtly but impressively furnished with repurposed bureaus, drawers and doodads of all kinds. The bar also offers a retro-stylish terrace in Savska street.

Corner Bar, Ulica Augusta Cesarca 4

Situated in the Ban Centre, urban meets zen in this tranquil yet modern atmosphere. An outdoor garden terrace creates an extremely peaceful and relaxing setting amongst the contemporary and chic decor, a top escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Not just a great spot to sip your morning coffee in peace, but also for a fun night out on the town with friends. They offer a large selection of wines, champagne by the glass, cognac, coffee and tea, along with sandwiches, cakes, cocktails, smoothies, natural juices, cigars and whisky.

Bikers Beer Factory, Savska 150

Located on Savska Street next to the restaurant Mex Cantina and in a backyard encircled with garages and a big motorcycle parking lot. High tables, good staff, the interior is full wood, bricks and lights with memorabilia from any bikers’ world (helmets, exhaust pipes etc). Jukebox and good choice of foreign beer. Sounds like a ZZ Top clip!

Pločnik, Medimurska 21

Covering three floors, the concept successfully melds music with cutting-edge design and the latest-and-greatest from the alternative world of street art, into one multi-functional space. Visit the cafe bar on the ground floor to chill out on vintage couches while sipping a local craft beer in a collective living room-like atmosphere inspired by New York City from the 1930’s. Go upstairs to the record store, listen to your favourite music and come away with a rare vinyl record, or step into the basement in the evening to check out the nightclub and temporary art gallery. Pločnik is a collective lifestyle concept that’s definitely not to be missed.

Mojo Bar, Marticeva ulica 5

Enjoy a drink in the sunshine on the café terrace, overlooking the fountain, on Trg hrvatskih velikana, or enter the underground bar and move into a smoky urban style ambiance. Brick walls, adorned with black-and-white pictures, create a mellow and calming atmosphere. A very large selection of wines and rakijas are offered, which can be enjoyed at the live music nights, featuring klapas on Mondays, rock cover bands on Tuesdays, jazz bands on Wednesdays and DJs on the weekends.

You will find a taxi rank close to the Mojo Bar so if you have one over the eight, you will not have a problem getting home!
