Lift Belgrade – Drinks, Billiard and the Crew

bars
Bars

"Lift" in Belgrade is a bar in the ruin of an ex-brewery. It's a true locals' gathering place. The focus is on the people and the flow - and the billiards!

Lift is located in Cetinjska 15, in a vast ruin that used to be a brewery, and which has become the home of many coffee places, bars and clubs in the past few years. Once you’re in the middle of the parking lot, you will see an external staircase leading to an elevator door: that’s where you should head to.

The moment I entered Lift for the first time, I realized that it was actually a true locals’ gathering place: I never fail to run into a crew playing billiards or darts with dedication, and more than a few times someone simply asks to join them. 

The bar offers a wide-enough range of drinks and nothing fancy: no craft beers or numerous varieties of the same beverage, even though you can surely order a quality gin or bourbon. Lift preserves a unique bar atmosphere, where the focus is on the people and the flow. The music is not aggressive and the owners sometimes invite their DJ friends to turn up the vibe; usually it’s just some well-chosen sounds playing in the background. It is crowded on the weekends, when it is more difficult to find a spot, but is far less hectic during the week.

When the weather is nice, I sometimes drink my coffee on the sunny rooftop balcony. Finally, the relaxed atmosphere is what keeps me and my friends coming back; and the billiards, of course.

This is an obscure burek spot I wasn't sure of whether I wanted to share. Their burek with cheese (the only one they do) is my very favorite...

Akademija 28 – A jazzy old place

"Akademija 28" Belgrade has been made better throughout the years, just like fine wine. I like coming to this bar for the jazz & the weathered atmosphere.

"Street Gallery" in Belgrade is an alley that before 2012 was just some place to go when nature called and now has been transformed into an art hub!

Chillton – Chill at will

"Chillton" is not yet another classic Belgrade apartment club. The atmosphere is shabby, chilled, completely unpretentious. You can be yourself here...

"Miamiam" Belgrade is what you get when you mix a friendship, a pinch of French culture, a Michelin star experience & India. Just try the beetroot halva.
