La Kanja initially began as project by two Spaniards who came to Skopje and wanted to provide the city a place dedicated to young people who favoured non-commercial types of music. Years afterwards the bar was transferred to the Old bazaar and experienced a management change but remained faithful to the music program and earned its regular clientele.
The bar has been the place which promotes culture for the young people and by the young with its innovative and creative music program including several kinds of indie-rock, synthi-pop, electro-disco and exotica thrown into the mix. Virtually every day there is a gig going on. It’s always loud and always happening.
Holding the monopoly on hipster nightlife in Skopje, the bar offers a unique urban atmosphere filled up with a sophisticated bohemian set with an easy-going personality. Acting as a mediator between mainstream and underground, La Kanja is an important meeting point not only for different artists, but for those who’d like to know more about what’s going on in Skopje’s alternative scene.
Known to get pretty lively on the weekends.
