Swanky Monkey Garden

Standing where there was once a dry-cleaning factory, Swanky Monkey Garden is now a cool hostel bar with three terraces in the heart of Zagreb. This means it is popular among backpackers and tourists so, it's a good place to meet new people. They often have DJ sets, live music and special events like "winesday", namely Wednesdays with wine.

Bars & Nightlife

Zagreb has no shortage of bars and pubs. At Tkalciceva, there seems to be a pub every few metres and the area is superb for a pub crawl – as it looks like one vast outdoor bar. Zagreb also has a solid and lively nightlife that revolves around several characterful and informal clubs and discos. Most of the activity is from September to late June, as some of the clubs shut down for the summer when many locals go on holiday elsewhere.
