If you like bars with intimate atmosphere, situated in old buildings not so far from the city center with lovely music and cool crowd here are some nice places that could be worth your while.
Kaste is a delightful new hidden spot at the heart of Belgrade created with lots of love by two culturally diverse individuals who share the same passion for design, music and hospitality. Basically it’s a mixture of memories, experiences and personal backgrounds all in one place, where everyone can feel comfortable, free to share their own personal moments between friends and other guests.
The owners tend to bring in warmth, serenity, peace and calm and above all originality to personally selected vintage interior, in order to make each guest feel at home, therefore their named a Bar – Kaste which stands for Home in Southern Italian dialect, the Bari or Pugliese dialect to be more precise.
The owner wanted to share his expertise in classical yet superior quality cocktails with the restaurant guests where knowledge and expertise will not fail to impress in order to create the superb flavours and feelings. There is a list of cocktails that are called the “specials”. The “specials” are cocktail recipes concocted by Giuliano and his fellow barmen colleagues from all around the world. Let us not forget that Kaste also serves coffee, tea, soft drinks, several types of wine starting from south Italian to the Serbian ones, refreshing non-alcoholic cocktails and beer such as Kabinet (Serbian craft beer), Sol, Zajecarsko, Budweiser…..to name but a few.
A mixture of retro, bohemian and industrial interior design, items selected from Italian and Serbian flea markets as well as old items from their personal vintage collection. Enriched with a selection of records from jazz, funky, disco and electronica to classical, old school rock and pop.
The hidden garden’s concept comes as no surprise.
