There aren’t many cafes in Sarajevo that are dedicated to a certain person or event, so Che (as locals like to abbreviate it) caught my interest immediately.
It’s located at Kovačići, near Wilson promenade, hidden between the buildings so this location makes it almost invisible for tourists. I like to come here whenever I feel like spending a nice, quiet evening, with not much of a crowd, just a cozy ambience and good music.
It’s obviously dedicated to Che Guevara so there are pictures of him all over the place, some interesting Cuba souvenirs and other details that pay tribute to Cuba like Havana’s street map. Besides that, you can say it’s conceptualized like a pub. Warmer days can be spent outside and colder ones are perfect for this laid back atmosphere with dimmed lights and some chatting over a beer. Right across from Che there’s another place, with the same name and owner, where you can eat some really tasty pancakes, most of the locals will say they are some of the best in the city. As for the music, you’ll get the chance to listen classic rock or chill covers of popular songs.
While writing all these articles I’ve come to the conclusion that if you really want to experience the city you’re visiting, these small, intimate places like Che Guevara and similar ones will help you get a better picture of the city’s everyday life much sooner than some of the crowded, widely popular ones.
