Café Bar Sova

This new addition to the city’s live music scene looks like everything a jazz bar ought to be; a large L-shaped cellar with a stage at the apex, and chic but not overwhelming décor featuring matt greys, pastel colours and a fair bit of exposed brick. There’s a separate smoking room with plush back couches. The live…

Hard Place

Fancy a night out at the National Library? The row of retail units that runs along the base of the library building is increasingly being taken over by music bars, of which alternative hangout SPUNK is the most famous. Previously located near Kvatrić Market, the Hard Place rock club moved here in early 2014. It has an excellent live music performance space at the…

Rock Club Ribnjak

The concrete building in Ribnjak park, formerly home to the Purgeraj music bar, has metamorphosed into Rock Club Ribnjak. Little has changed in terms of appearance or content: there’s still a live music space, a conservatory-style parkside pavilion, and a bar in-between the two. Live acts include local indie hopefuls and cover bands; and it’s a great place for evening drinking in early summer…

A rambling complex which contains many venues, the Student Centre (Studentski centar, or simply ‘SC’) hosts occasional club, gig and festival-related events – although it’s frequently difficult to find out what is happening unless you keep a keen ear to the ground. Rock and jazz acts play in the centre’s theatre space (Teatr &TD) and…

Tvornica kulture

Following a thorough refit in 2011, Tvornica kulture (‘The Culture Factory’) has lost no time in reestablishing itself as Zagreb‘s leading medium-sized venue for live rock and pop. The fashionably black, 1,800-capacity main hall (Veliki pogon, ‘Large Workshop’) has now been augmented by the addition of a much more intimate small hall (Mali pogon), which hosts…

Žedno uho

One to watch, ‘Thirsty Ear’ was opened winter 2012 by Mate Škugor, legendary alternative gig promoter and co-founder of the Terraneo music festival. Having found a home in the tunnel-like basements of the Klovićevi dvori art gallery, the Ear was closed down by order of the organisers of the Klovićevi dvori’s blockbuster Picasso exhibition –…
