I love everything about this place. Literally everything. Starting with its name that means jazz stage (bina = stage), but if you cut one “z” out, you get the word jazbina which translates as the den; all the way to the combination of very well selected and truly intimate small concerts, drinks, the people who hang out here, the owners, the staff – everything :). Jazzbina is definitely one of my favourite places for a night out, or at least the final destination of the night. It is my custom-made den, especially during the cold days (which can be really cold in Sarajevo).
This jazz bar lives 7 days a week and offers a sanctuary to those in a need of some fine tunes. Dear owners of this place will make sure to put together a great repertoire of music, starting with ex-YU rock stuff and topping it off with the sounds of the high-quality musicians of Jazz Guerilla. It’s not uncommon for the Guerilla guys to make some room on the tiny stage for the guests (mostly some of the world’s popular names in jazz music) to jam into the session.
Like in any other bar, there’s a fine selection of drinks, but I rarely remember what I’ve drunk… It’s more about whom I’ve met or what kind of music I’ve listened to.
