Even though not a huge city, Zagreb does have its charm. And even though the underground/arty/stylish vibe cannot be compared to the vibes in big cities like Paris, London or Berlin – there are some places in Zagreb which take it one step closer to the underground/arty/stylish capitals. Zagreb’s city center, full of parks and charming little streets is in fact full of hidden gems a tourist eye might miss. So if you want to do as the locals do, chill like the locals do, dance like the locals do – let me introduce you to some nice vibe Zagreb places:



After a nice walk in Zagreb’s city center you might want to sit down for a cup of coffee or a tea. One of the nicest places to do that is Bacchus bar. Whether you’re in town during the warmer season and want to have a refreshing drink in the wonderful garden, or you want to warm up during the colder days in a cozy, warm and arty bar – Bacchus is the place to be. It’s located near the main train station, right next to King Tomislav Square, in a courtyard of an old building.




If you’re in the mood for some fresh designer things, don’t hesitate to visit this super cool store. You can find anything from furniture, clothes to home decor here, you can find the very best of Croatian designers. Even if you’re not in the mood for spending big money or simply cannot buy a couch cause it would’t fit your backpack – feel free to check this place out. It looks as a kind of a museum, you can have a coffee there and if you’re lucky you might just be there for an in-store event (events usually take place on Saturday mornings). Croatian Design Superstore is located near the Croatian Splendour’s Square (Trg Hrvatskih Velikana).




Vintage, second hand, jazzy, old fashion, creative, arty, classy, chic, colorful, interesting, stylish… A space filled with old radios, books, records, old furniture, weird lamps… – definitely a place worth checking out, whether it’s to have coffee and relax or to have drinks in the evening with your friends. Sometimes there’s a jazzy band playing, but most of the time records spin on old fashion record players. It’s located in Tkalčićeva street – one of the busiest streets in Zagreb, filled with bars and restaurants.




An incredibly cute and charming bar located in Martićeva street – very close to Croatian Design Superstore. Vintage, old fashion furniture, interesting interior design, relaxing atmosphere… perfect for a morning coffee or even an afternoon glass of wine.




If you’re tired of going to multiplex type cinema and want to enjoy an old fashion kind of theater this is the place to be. A beautiful theatrical hall and interesting films is why one should definitely go there when in a film watching mood. There’s even a bar in front – so you can have a drink before or after the film. It’s located in the center of the center – next to the Flower Square (Cvjetni Trg).




From the outside it might seem as a normal bar, from the inside it’s much more. It’s located in Tkalčićeva street, right across Melin bar. You can have a drink on the terrace or inside, but once you go downstairs to the basement – you have to dance. There’s someone spinning every night Wednesday to Saturday and it’s open until 2 AM. A great place to dance a bit if you want to have an early night. And a great place to dance a bit if you want to start your evening here and then go clubbing.


If you want to hear and dance to some underground beats, Masters is the place to be. Besides local Djs, foreign guests from the underground electronic scene spin here. Entrance is five to ten €, depending on the event. The only thing is that it’s not in the city center so you’ll have to grab a cab to get to Ravnice (a neighborhood in the eastern part of the city). Don’t worry about having to pay a cab ride to get back as well – by the time you leave Masters, the city will be wide awake and public transportation will be available. It’s open until 8 AM.
