Kafet e Rakisë – Rakia connecting people

Kafet e rakisë translated in English would be “rakia cafes” (rakia is a strong spirit made by distilling various fruits with 40% ABV or more). This is a small street in Prishtina that has always been famous for the little bars that are on both sides of the road. During the summer it is super overcrowded inside the bars, in the terrace and in the street, so it has a very vibrant and lively vibe.

Rule number one about kafet e rakis is that you never start drinking on an empty stomach thinking “I will have only one drink”. There is no such thing as “just one drink”, so the best thing to do is to stop at one of these places: “Te Martini”, “Ibra”, “Tirona” (check out the article), “Te Shoki”, “Ibra”, “PR”, “Baron” (they all are 10m away from each other) and have some chicken, potatoes, kebap, salads and you are in for a very good night ahead.

What I usually suggest to start off with (after eating, of course) is a beer (or wine, but with a higher chance of headache the next day) and with each glass to have a shot of rakia and each time get a different one (grape, pear, walnut, quince, and my favorite — plum). In my experience, this is the best place in Prishtina to start your pre-gaming, so after midnight you can go clubbing somewhere else.
