When you hear Belgrade, what do you think of first? Of course, the rich nightlife that leaves every tourist breathless! Let’s start with the night life.
In Belgrade, every night is Friday night. Everyone is ready to party all the time, dance the night away, and go straight to work the next day. It’s really hard to resist the temptation when you know that on any given evening there are countless clubs out there full of young people having so much fun.
The mainstream clubbing scene consists of venues playing house music, progressive, tech house, and turbo-folk (a sub-genre of folk music with dance and pop elements specific to Serbia), but you can also find places specialising in R’n’B, pop, rock, trance, alternative, jazz, or just about any other type of music in existence.
Tourists mostly go for Mainstream clubs, since they do not feel the vibe and do not understand music at the local music places.
Both Mainstream and National Live Clubs require: Prior reservation ( guest list ), to be on time and no sport wear. If you want to experience both scenes, we suggest you start from Skadarlija first.
The Belgrade evenings starts with a stroll in the pretty neighborhood of Skadarlija, previously known as “The Gypsy Quarter”. Soak up the cultural atmosphere in one of the many pop-up galleries or stop by an antique shop, before making your way to a trendy bar for live music and drinks. The cobbled streets and mesmerizing street art of this historical area makes for great photo opportunities, while Skadarlija is jam-packed with restaurants too.
Clubs by the river
You’ll find some of Belgrade’s clubs by the two beautiful rivers. Both Sava River and the Danube boast the top spots for partying in summer time. Freestyler next to Sava is an electro club, while Club River offers more mainstream music. Club Lasta – here you can enjoy a night of house music and magical atmosphere in an actual floating club. Make sure to book a table in advance if you want to be guaranteed entry. Remember that the river clubs are closed during winter.
