One Croatian bar has made well-known American magazine TimeOut New York‘s best bars in the world list.
Cica bar, in Croatia’s capital Zagreb, made the top 50 “Best bars and drinks in the world” list compiled by the magazine which describes itself as “The world’s living guide”.
The Cica Bar is the stand-out place on Tkalčićeva, Zagreb’s endless pedestrianised drinking strip. It’s also the best spot in town to sample Croatia’s favourite local liquor, rakija – a variation on grappa or ouzo. The interior undergoes radical changes every year or so and has the appearance of an art installation rather than a café-bar. For instance, 2011’s gothic bathroom look with ceramic sinks serving as tables was replaced with a long table that looks like a space shuttle and emits an enigmatic blue glow. Skeletal black chairs look like instruments of torture but are strangely comfortable, wrote TimeOut.
