An unexpected find in an unpromising courtyard, 22,000 Leagues Under the Sea is very much a Zagreb one-off, decked out in wood paneling, metal rivets, and several clusters of dials that look like the kind of pressure-gages you might find in a submarine. It’s a wonderful piece of steampunk-influenced design, and is very popular with young locals – it’s the kind of place that might be full on a Tuesday in February when all other bars in the neighbourhood are empty. It’s also one of the few central pubs that serves bottles of San Servolo beer (25kn/half litre), the malty boutique brew from Istria.
