Salon 1905 is situated in the historic Geozavod building, which is located in the centre of Belgrade’s Old town in the Savamala area. The restaurant’s name underlies the fact that the building was built in 1905, and yet still hints at its sister restaurant which we hopefully have all become very familiar with. On entering the building, you’re greeted by friendly staff, and you make your way up the grand marble stairs leading to the restaurant entrance. Once inside, you are immediately struck with awe by the epochal interior which simply strikes the visitor dumb with admiration. From its impressive high ceiling, to the Baroque and Art Nouveaux blends of marble, brass and gold, one gets overwhelmed with the feeling that they’ve entered a truly opulent space, one from the likes of Paris or Vienna.
What is perhaps even more fascinating, is the fact that you feel very much at home in the midst of all this lavish luxury. The area is divided into a bar – lounge area, decorated by a large oak bar and the dazzling colours of the various bottles in it, and the spacious yet intimate dining area.
Address: 48 Karađorđeva St. I floor, Geozavod building, 11000 Belgrade
Comunale restaurant is in one of the best locations in the city. The architects of the “project” known as Beton Hala or Concrete Hall at the Sava Port seem to have created a chain of attractive looking places right here on the Sava River. The creator of the interior design and concept of the restaurant Comunale, Aleksandar Rodić again opted for a rather bold approach. The pioneering efforts of many Serbian caterers and restaurant owners to introduce community tables have almost never come to fruition. Here Alexander manages an uncompromising space full of just this, no alternatives. As the name itself suggests a gathering of its kind, guests at Comunale sit in large numbers at the same table and feel comfortable, because they are all there for the same purpose. They are here to enjoy high-quality Italian specialties. The aesthetics are clean and monochromatic, as is the architecture of the space itself. Large spaces, monolithic structures in-line with the way things are arranged with the central bar in the middle are all very Comunale. Aleksandar has achieved a combination of steel and veneer with utmost perfection and that multiplies and combines with stainless chairs and monolithic benches.

Homa is situated in the Lower Dorcol that seem to have become a very trendy part of Belgrade in the last several years when it comes to coffee culture, drinking and dining. Interior design of the restaurant is simple, dominated by white color and light that has been achieved with the help of milky white lamps in the shape of a sphere. Black metal tables that contrast with white wooden chairs break the bleak and arid atmosphere of the restaurant. Inside, as well as in the garden, there is a large black and white bar framed with concrete.
Location of the restaurant itself is quite unique. Industrial zone is just round the corner, but customers can feel as if they were sitting in the oasis of peace and tranquility. Specific menu, fusion cuisine, a mixture of flavors and tastes of local, European, South American and Asian cuisines are the expertise of the main chef.

Interior was designed by Marko Basarovski. It appears like a big window, inside you will see raw walls, wooden elements and cool chandeliers.

Located in a converted apartment of a period building in Belgrade’s historical area of Zemun, Salon 5 has quickly gained reputation as one of the city’s superb places to wine and dine in. The restaurant is run by two old friends, Nikola and Pavle. Nikola mastered the art of restaurant business, having worked as a sous chef in Italy for almost a decade, while Pavle is an avid art collector running a prominent design studio. Together, they have opened Salon 5 as an alternative to Belgrade’s current restaurant scene, serving the finest Italian cuisine in an intimate and refined atmosphere. This is not your average cool-looking restaurant. It looks more like a private dining room, but with no pomp. The overall impression inside is one of elegance and warmth. The space is fitted with classic Italian and Scandinavian furniture, paintings of eminent artists of the Modernism period hanging on the walls absorbed in soporific sounds ranging from Brazilian bossa and 1960’s jazz to the more contemporary ambient electronica.

This up-market club is located in one of the pillars of Brankov Bridge. It has a refined and quite beautiful interior, which was designed by architect Đorđe Gec. Brankow’s location is unique, representing a fusion of urban, industrial and avant-garde. Similarly its music selection is also quite distinctive, from jazz and funky to hip hop and house. The crowd is a bit older than in the rest of Belgrade’s clubs (+30). The club has been designed for people with cash, so the prices are not so affordable.
