Why locals love it

Swanky bar is part of a hostel, and that makes it a pretty touristy spot. But the owners did a great job renovating an old dry cleaning facility, finding it a new purpose and preserving the old machinery. As a result, the city got a great partying spot and an inspiring industrial heritage site.

Why you should visit it

Special experience of holding your glasses on the late 19th century heavy machinery makes this place worth visiting... plus they organize great parties almost each evening. Drink offer includes great Croatian brandies of all sorts.

Special tip

To make it a truly 19th century experience, you could order Absinthe, they have the best kind that can be found in Zagreb.
