When a place has been going on since 1968 with more or less the same good vibe then there must be something to it. I must admit I haven’t been a regular visitor of the famous “Apple” until well into my adult years, but it’s never too late to join the club of faithful devoted followers – consequently I prefer Saturday nights in Jabuka, conveniently united under the name of “Night of faith and devotion”.
All lovers of old school electro-pop and rock with a splash of newer artists will definitely enjoy this playlist.
Although some critics have complained of Jabuka losing its alternative vibe in these modern globalized times I personally can only say that, not knowing what it had been like 20 or 40 years ago, it’s a place I always go to if I want to dance all night to something different than this year’s chart hits.
The program in Jabuka is more or less the same every week, which is also part of its charm – you can be sure that if you’re in a certain mood looking for something specific, it will provide. Fridays are reserved for Luna Park (“Amusement park”) with a lighter note, while Saturdays are the notorious Night(s) of Faith and Devotion. Some nights also become theme nights connected to upcoming concerts in the area.
FInally, Jabuka’s cult status has been honored recently by an exhibition in the Archaeological Museum, so there’s something more to do after a night of partying.
