Fancy having a few drinks and experiencing Belgrade from above? I’ve discovered some great bars and coffee places with a splendid view.
Java Lounge Bar
Java Lounge Bar is located in the peaceful neighbourhood of Bežanijska Kosa. It has a magical view on the whole city. This bar seems to be a perfect place for a morning coffee on a sunny day. But it is also a romantic spot for breathtaking sunsets. The most eye-catching building on the horizon is the Gate of Belgrade, where the famous video clip Klangkarussell – Netzwerk was filmed.
The chairs are comfy and the atmosphere relaxed. The prices tend to be lower than in the city. They don’t have a menu though, so don’t expect fancy cocktails. Try the plazma shake instead.

Aleksandar Club – Ski Staza
This one is for all nature lovers! Ski Staza (engl. ski slope) is located next to the Košutnjak Forest, my favourite spot out in the nature in Belgrade. Aleksandar Club is the perfect place to have coffee after a romantic walk in the forest. I recommend visiting the restaurant during the week because it can be packed with people at weekends.
From this point you can enjoy a drink with a beautiful view onto New Belgrade and have a breath of fresh air. Pets are more than welcome in this place.

Sinnerman Jazz Club
Sinnermans Jazz Club is located on the Nikola Pašić Square, a few minutes walk from the city centre. Looking onto the Dom Sindikata (a concert/theater hall and an office space at the same time), you will see an entrance on the left side of Šoljica Café’. Once you get inside, turn left and take the elevator to the 7th floor.
Sinnerman Club offers you a splendid view to discover the roof of the Parliament, the Sveti Marko Church and the beautiful fountain in the middle of the Square. During the day time you can relax on the roof, enjoy the view and have lunch. At night, the bar turns into a Club featuring smooth Jazz Music. A glass of white wine costs 160 Dinars (~1,20 €). All in all, a wonderful view for a reasonable price.

Fat Cat Pub
The Fat Cat Pub is located in the old town of Zemun. It is a nice place to have a rest after walking all the way up to the Gardoš Tower. The pub is also perfect to chill with friends or significant others. They have a really good selection of beer. My tip: Kabinet, Serbian draft beer based on the British beer and ale recipes.
The Fat Cat Pub has the awesome view over Zemun and the Danube River. The GardošTower gives this place a special atmosphere with their , lest I forget, friendly staff.

Podrum & WineArt
Podrum & WineArt has a charming roof terrace with a view onto Višnjićeva Street in Dorćol. This place has a huge selection of international and local wines available by half and full glass. If you fall in love with some choice of wine, you can purchase it at their adjoining wine shop.
Moreover, Podrum serves delicious tapas and mouthwatering desserts. It is the perfect place for a coffee on the sunny rooftop or a wine tasting evening with friends or significant others.
