Belgrade is a home to several alternative venues. Today, we present some of the places that could be worth your while. So, let’s start with the most famous one…

KST or Klub Studenata Tehnike is a “living corpse”, an iconic Belgrade alternative club, which opened up as a bar back in the 50s. Book “Foggy years” describes it as ”A club in which time has stopped, a country where everything has stopped.”

KST is located in the basement of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. The space itself looks quite neglected: one long corridor, and one large and one small room always packed with people. In the summer the yard area is open as well. Along with the club Akademija, this was my favourite, back in the days when I was a teenager. KST is made for a mostly younger, alternative crowd, basically teens and students. The music selection ranges from alternative rock and Yugoslav new wave to EBM and Gothic.

KENOZOIK

Located in the bar district in Cetinjska St. popularly called Dorcolmala, Kenozoik  represents something like a new version of Peron Club but much more compelling. The club features movie screenings, live gigs, exhibitions and DJ nights. There are two floors with different music concepts. The ground floor is really big and can accommodate a big crowd and it looks rather good. Music is orientated towards electronic, pop, alternative, indie.

POLET

Within walking distance from Kenozoik, but a little ‘up’  in that direction there is one we really like called Polet which is more like a mixture of a culture centre, gallery and a bar. Here you can get a feel of some retro music, jazzy sounds and literary nights to name but two  and  grab a coffee during the day.

KINKY BAR 

Located in the space of a former Voodoo club, a brand new alternative club emerged. The Kinky bar is something new on the alternative scene of Belgrade. It offers Gotic, EBM, Techno and fetish nights. The club gets crowded around 1 am. Here you can grab a few drinks and meet some friendly and alternative crowd from Belgrade.

NIXON 

Nixon bar is a hidden gem located in Misarska street close to SKC. It offers a closed part during the winter and a lovely summer garden. Prices are decent and people are cool and friendly. You can enjoy some nice music ranging from deep house and disco to techno in this bar.  It’s definitely a place we would recommend.

Address: 7 Misarska St. 11000 Belgrade
