Found nearby the famous old bridge, the Stari Most, Blasting Lounge is a trendy and comfortable bar and café. A is great option for a chilled and quiet drink after a day of touring, especially on the shady terrace, it is equally pleasant during the evenings when the outdoor tables offer impressive views of the lit-up bridge. It is located within the main restaurant and bar complex, so is also ideal for after-dinner drinks.

Wine & More

Bar, Wine Bar, European

Set within the historic Old Town area and in a refurbished traditional building is Wine & More. As the name might suggest, this spot is mainly a wine bar but also offers a selection of beers and other soft drinks. The bar is on the opposite side of the river to most of the other bars and restaurants, which makes it quieter and ideal for those looking for an option further off the beaten track.

If a less rigidly planned evening is on the cards, take a wander around the selection of bars and restaurants that overlook the Stari Most- all are pretty similar in quality and selection, and offer outstanding views of the bridge, which is lit up beautifully when darkness falls. The western bank of the river is the place to be, and maintains a lively atmosphere until late at night. There are plenty of spots to choose from, it’s just a case of finding somewhere that still has a spare table to look out over the bridge.

One of the few Mostar joints that is open all night and all year round, Caffe Marshall is set within a small historic building built in a traditional stone style. There are a few tables on the cobbled street out at the front of the bar, while inside the bar is small but with a good atmosphere thanks to dim lighting and traditional furnishings. A great option for a traditional bar experience.

Ljetna Bašta Oskar

Bar, Cafe, Hotel Restaurant, European

Ljetna Bašta Oskar is a fashionable bar and shisha venue, popular with younger crowds and backpackers. The bar features a large outdoor seating area with plenty of comfortable cushions and sofas, as well as some covered areas under traditional wooden pergolas. The menu includes cocktails as well as a good number of different shisha flavors. There’s also a selection of light bar snacks.

Black Dog Pub

Inside a historic old mill is Black Dog Pub, offering a selection of home brews and craft beers. There are regular live music (events are on their Facebook page), and the place can get very busy in the evenings, so it’s recommended that you turn up early, especially if you want to grab a table overlooking the river. It is popular with tourists but still has an authentic vibe, partly thanks to its location on a quiet cobbled side street away from the main crowds. Take cash; it doesn’t take cards.

Leroy Bar and Wine Shop

Bar, Wine Bar, Wine Seller, Pub Grub, European

Leroy Bar and Wine Shop is a sophisticated wine venue hosting regular tasting events and offering local as well as international varieties. Some wines are available by the glass in the bar area, but most only come in bottles, although they are surprisingly affordable. The place is popular with locals, who flock to the tasting events, which gives it a nice relaxed and authentic atmosphere.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
