Appetising new wine bar Vivat Fina Vina is making a splash in Martićeva, set opposite the wine merchant’s flagship shop in Zagreb. For a bar this fancy, the price list is very reasonable indeed: you can grab a decent bottle from 65kn, with local wines sold from 15kn a glass and a biodynamic Italian Pinot Noir costing a little over 30kn. Spanning a hundred or so wines, the list will eventually grow to incorporate a selection of ultra-luxury wines, as well as exploring natural and organic Croatian wines.
Wine is obviously the main draw here but other tipples include fruit juices from Austria, Sardinian grappa and Italian craft beers. French-style patisserie La Marquise provide a delicious array of sweet and savoury pastries, and Croatian celebrity chef Mate Janković is conjuring up a menu of charcuterie and other cold plates which will be available soon. Yum.
