After the closing of Green Moon: a nice, straight friendly environment close to some of Ljubljana’s most interesting spots (like the Central Market), and Cafe Open: a gender friendly place close to music delights in Prule (like Prulček bar), the LGBTQA community in Ljubljana lost one of its very few, if not only such places to hang out. But not more than a year after that a new bar, joining together all the best things of its predecessors, came into existence.
As its name suggests, Kafe Kolaž is a colorful collage of new and old ideas, contexts, events and people that make the place a popular hangout among Ljubljana citizens regardless of gender identity, preference or sexual orientation. They not only offer good coffee and imaginative cocktails you can drink sitting outside in the summer garden or inside in the cozy living room, but also a wide arrange of snacks (tapas), soups, pasta and even sushi on Fridays.
In winter, when the frost sets in, you may grab a cup of mulled wine, apple punch or hot chocolate and relax sitting in vintage chairs, eyeing the photo exhibition on the walls or listening to the concert or debate about life, gender, sexuality, politics and literature. Don’t be afraid to bring your pets, thoughts and troubles, they may befriend each other or someone else.
