Following the trend of many European cities, Zagreb jumped on the train of turning old factory spaces into spots of arts and entertainment. One of these are the premises of the hydroisolation factory “Katran”. The factory itself is still running, on a smaller scale than before (crisis and all) so there was a lot of empty space waiting for someone to turn it into a productive environment. For a couple of years already, the “Katran” space has been the venue of many a great parties – be it from standard clubbing nights to corporate events, private parties etc.
A part of the space is even turned into an independent photo studio during the day, while the night-time is reserved for clubbing. The thing about Katran is that there is no official website for the space, no spokesperson to keep an eye out for, so it’s usually word of mouth (FB) advertising giving the events happening there a bit of an underground flare.
Although the crowd flocking to Katran is a mix – you’ll find everyone from corporate suits to students, advertising creatives and the usual mainstream crowd. Katran had fast become the “it” place in town, a place to see and be seen.
The best way to found out what’s happening in the space (which is often divided in two, so there will be two parties happening simultaneously door to door) and entrance is usually restricted only to attendees of official FB events, so make sure you click on that “Attend” button!
