When it comes to entertainment and nightlife, few European cities have as much to offer fun-loving travelers as Belgrade. When you’re done sightseeing for the day, it’s time to discover the city’s super clubs, Michelin starred restaurants and hip neighborhoods. We’ve searched high and low for the best things to do at night in the Serbian capital.
1. Roam the bohemian quarters of Skadarlija
The ultimate Belgrade evening starts with a stroll in the pretty neighborhood of Skadarlija, previously known as “The Gypsy Quarter”. Soak up the cultural atmosphere in one of the many pop-up galleries or stop by an antique shop, before making your way to a trendy bar for live music and drinks. The cobbled streets and mesmerizing street art of this historical area makes for great photo opportunities, while Skadarlija is jam-packed with restaurants too.
2. Go clubbing by the river
You’ll find some of Belgrade’s trendiest clubs by the two beautiful rivers. Both Sava River and the Danube boast the top spots for partying in summer time. Freestyler next to Sava is an electro haven, while Club River offers more mainstream music. Club Lasta is another Belgrade gem - here you can enjoy a night of house music and simply magical atmosphere in an actual floating club. Make sure to book a table in advance if you want to be guaranteed entry. *Note that the river clubs are closed during winter.

4. Visit Sinnerman Jazz Club
If you want to listen to some mellow jazz tunes during your trip to Belgrade, we know just the place. Hidden on the 7th floor in a Skadarlija building, it’s ridiculously easy to miss Sinnerman Jazz Club. But visitors will agree that it’s worth the trek as this place has an irresistible gritty atmosphere; it’s almost like entering an authentic 1950s jazz club.

5. Talking a walk along the Danube and watching the sunset
There’s something truly fascinating about the Danube, especially at nighttime. If you’re visiting Belgrade with your loved one we’d definitely recommend taking off on an evening walk on the pretty riverbanks. And when you feel peckish there are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafés along the river. Make sure you’re standing in a good spot when the sun begins to set for the best views of the sunset - why not enjoy the views from Kalemegdan Fortress?
6. People watching at Knez Mihailova Street
The bustling pedestrian and shopping street of central Belgrade is too good to miss. At Knez Mihailova Street you can check out the fashion forward locals, as well as some of the capital’s most exciting buildings including the National Museum of Serbia. This amazing museum is open until 8.00pm on Saturdays, making for the perfect activity before you sit down at one of the outdoor restaurants watching the world pass by. Knez Mihailova Street simply offers something for everyone, regardless of age.
7. Adrenalin Escape Rooms
Time to get that excitement going with a night at Adrenalin Escape Rooms, located just around the corner from the main square. It’s one of the most loved tourist attractions in Belgrade, and it’s easy to see why. You and your team mates have just an hour to make your way out of a locked room by solving puzzles and figuring out what random clues mean. There are five rooms to choose from, all with different levels of difficulty. How about spending sixty minutes in a scary psychiatric institution or pretending you’re a secret agent?
