It has become a trademark of Belgrade. Belgrade stands out in the Balkans as a haven for clubbing and bar hopping.
While in the most European capitals, Fridays or Saturdays evenings are dedicated for going out to nightclubs, Belgrade is entirely different.
In Belgrade, every night is Friday night. Everyone is ready to party at all the time, dance all night away, and go straight to work the next day.
Many praise Belgrade as ‘the new Berlin’ but Belgrade offers more than any other European capital.
It stands out, first of all for a friendly atmosphere, great clubs and bars, cheap drinks and lack of restrictive nightlife regulation.
Why Belgrade have this amazing booming nightlife culture?
The war of the 1990s, UN sanctions, monetary inflation, unemployment to finish with 1999 NATO bombing (I was there for three months), couldn’t prevent Belgraders to have fun.
Partying at some underground club even when there were air raids over their city, was how local nightlife boomed. There was nothing that could stop people from having fun.
Here is the summary of main nightclubs features:
River floating venues
The most popular clubs are floating ones. They stand on ‘splavovima’, or rafts on one of the two large rivers, the Danube and the Sava. It’s an unique and exciting atmosphere for all visitors to spend the night on a floating club.
No entrance fees
Among so many clubs, not a single one will charge you an entry fee. So you have more money left for drinks.
However, this does not mean that everyone can enter. Every single raft club owners have right to prohibit the entry to persons considering dangerous or those not respecting the dress code.
No Dancing floors
It may be unusual but Belgrade nightlife clubs have no dance floors. People like to just party and dance around their seats at the bar or their tables, if they made advance reservation to get one.
An additional advantage is that you can keep an eye on your personal stuffs and to take another drink at your own leisure without having to bump into the crowd each time. Practical, isn’t it!
An extremely popular feature all over Europe, the go-go dancers make a special feelings to Belgrade clubs.
Almost all clubs have four to eight go-go dancers. These charming females perform in an elevated visible from all possible viewpoints. Their job is to make the atmosphere of the club more pulsating.
