A typically energetic night at Feedback in Niš

On the whole, it is generally agreed that people get a little crazier the further south of Europe you go. Is this true in Serbia? The energetic people of Niš might claim so, and the nightlife of Serbia’s third largest city may well back that up.

1. Irish Pub Crazy Horse

Irish pubs in the Balkans are extremely hit and miss, but this premier Celtic drinking hole in Niš sits comfortably in the former of those categories. Crazy Horse is a winner from the name onwards, and the frequent live music and party nights embellish an already energetic environment. It is almost always full once the night gets going, so best get here early for the total experience.

2. Pleasure Caffe

Bar, Cafe, Restaurant, Nightclub, Contemporary

Pleasure by name, pleasure by nature. That might sound a little seedy, but the sentiment absolutely rings true at Pleasure Cafe. Something of an all-in-one spot, Pleasure is as good a place to grab quality lunch as it is to enjoy a book with a cup of coffee, and the evening is full of cocktails to boot. It covers all of the bases, and it covers them all with aplomb.

3. Pivnica Nemir

The number one spot for beer lovers in Niš, Pivnica Nemir is home to plenty of brews both local and international. Those looking to experience the craft beer revolution in Serbia need look no further when in the city, with a number of Dogma concoctions available on tap. Those uninterested in beer can check out the rest of the offer, but this is one for those who crave the amber nectar.

5. Labeerint

The days of Serbia being a black hole for beer fans are long gone. The craft beer revolution that has taken Europe by storm has definitely made it this far south, and Labeerint is another great option in Niš. The terrace offers some of the best views over the river, adding another string to Labeerint’s multifaceted bow.

6. Feedback

A Belgrade-style club in the heart of Niš, Feedback is only open on Thursday and the weekends. This makes absolute perfect sense, as who is dolling themselves up and hitting the dance floor on a Tuesday night? This is where the beautiful people come to party, so expect plenty of moody dancers and energetic house DJs.

7. Flo Bar

If you’re into commercial dance music then Flo is the place for you. A city staple since 2011, the bar is perennially packed from the close of work on Friday all the way through to the early hours of Sunday morning, with many choosing to return for an extra helping on Sunday evening too.
