Not many places in Zagreb live rock’n’roll, but this cannot be said of Route 66. Situated in a small shack behind the national library, it’s a small and cozy place for all rockers and rollers to enjoy.
Thursdays is usually “Country night”, Fridays “Friday fever”, “Rock Saturday” and the melancholic blues Sunday. Bands are different every week in a very cozy and laid back atmosphere, you just might stumble upon a TV host of a scientific show playing away with his rock’n’roll band or you’ll be able to choose your own track on the jukebox. This is definitely one of the more “underground” places in Zagreb, so if you’re looking for off the beaten track, this is definitely it.
There’s also table football, pool (what kind of a rock club would it be without pool?) and if you get hungry you can always order a slice of pizza or a hot dog. Although it’s mostly a night club, it’s open during the day, with a wonderful summer garden where you can chill with a beer in the shade of trees or on rainy days comfortably sit in the ‘living-room’ with a coffee at a student price of 4 kn.
So if you’re a rocker deep down, there’s no reason to miss Route 66, even if it’s ‘just’ the one in Zagreb.
