Belgrade might be a city of coffee lovers, but the city’s bars are no strangers to craft beer, amazing cocktails, hidden speakeasies and wine bars. Here is a short selection of our favorite wine bars in Belgrade.
PODRUM WINE ART
At the very heart of Belgrade, on the corner of Višnjićeva and Jevremova Street, there stands the Wine art wine cellar, a shop that captivates with beauty and represents an authentic mix of modern and rustic. The cellar has a wine shop and a wine bar offering a true variety of wines. In Wine art you can relax in a pleasant atmosphere and stunning interior and sip high-quality wines, both domestic and those from all over the world.
Having a glass of wine in a lush garden that smells like lavender and olives is something that must be experienced firsthand.
This popular French-style bistro is located at the lower end of upper Dorćol in the famous street of Strahinjića Bana (once known as Silicon Valley or Ostrich Valley) at number 52b. The bar tends to be packed with people at all times. Pastis offers variety of wines, and is open for breakfast.
Pastis is quite a trendy place, where people like to feel a little posh. This is also the place where British actor Ralph Fiennes spent a few mornings drinking coffee and reading newspapers while filming Coriolanus.
Amelie is a popular Belgrade bar situated next to Palas hotel and the Museum of Applied Arts. It’s a French bistrolike place. The interior and exterior have been carefully designed and embellished with vintage details and flowers. In Amelie you’ll find mostly locals from the downtown Belgrade. Locals enjoy drinking wine, sangria, beer and cocktails and often coffee during the day.
In case it gets too crowded try to find a seat on the bar’s upper floor.
CANTINA DEL VINO
Located on the city’s prime location, Strahinjica Bana street, Cantina del Vino offers a variety of Serbian and Italian wines, cocktails and gastronomic delights. The atmosphere is pretty laid-back and you can sit in the yard underneath the trees sipping your wine and chitchatting with your friends. Food menu is inviting as well. Tagliatelle and Tatare di manzo are a must!
Serbian Wine tasting includes 6 wines- three white and three red types, accompanied with local hors d’oeuvre. Wine tasting takes place in English, in a very chic tasting venue in downtown Belgrade, where guests can buy bottles of wine as well.

Serbian wine tasting is set in one of the oldest parts of the city, near Kosancicev Venac, just above the Sava river in Pop Lukina St. It is the easiest way to try a variety of local wines without leaving Belgrade.
