Sirup - © Nikola Fox/Time Out
Brainchild of Zagreb resident Sergej Lugović, who has had 20 years of experience as a clubber, DJ and owner in London, Moscow and Zagreb, Sirup is hidden away behind an anonymous-looking door on an anonymous-looking street of supermarkets and warehouses. Inside however it feels like an intimate lunar park. The bar is composed of rounded, glittery stone inlayed with lights. The passage to the dancefloor undulates and is framed by padded silver walls. Order cocktails, pint-sized Bavarias or shots of local spirit Pelinkovac under disco balls. The DJs, domestic and international, attract a healthy mixture of scenesters who know their dance-music genres and party animals pure and simple. Burlesque parties and live music occasionally squeak their way onto the schedule. Cover charges range from 30kn-60kn.
