The new season is already a fact, and autumn nights are much cozier when delicious food is accompanied by music. The relationship between food and music is not new for restaurants and background tunes can be used as a tool to influence customers. These purposefully can create a softer and more intimate atmosphere, as well as a strong, noisy and hectic one. Music may predispose us to spend long hours enjoying gourmet specialties or indulging in dancing at your favorite club. Live performances are even more impactful and so the team of the only digital guide under the hills selected a few places where you can enjoy them while eating quality dishes.
We start with restaurants that offer not only live performances of authentic folk music, but also a complete program combined with dancing and customs. They undoubtedly have their admirers, for whom after-dinner horo is a must. Such places are Megdana and HitarPetar, and dozens more taverns in the neighborhoods. You will not get exquisite dishes and a selection of the best culinary products and techniques, but the mood is at a level if you are a fan of these rhytms. Most often you will recognize them by the noise inside.
Quite the opposite in concept are restaurants such as Note di Vino, Hemingway and Memory. In them, the emphasis is on the original cuisine with exquisite chef specialties, and the accompaniment of musical instruments and delicate vocals is only part of the delight for the spirit and palate. Usually performances are on weekend nights, but there are often special events. Jazz and evergreen tunes are a perfect complement and predispose to long heartfelt conversations with loved ones and friends.
The third option to enjoy musical nights is the bars. Vintage House, ThEATre and Contrabass are part of the venues where favorite musicians often visit. Their menus are not filled with complex dishes, but there is a wide selection of entrees, appetizers and salads. You can combine the selected dish with a cocktail or just a glass of beer. In the meantime, relax in the rhythm of a cool song.
Two of the newer establishments also have evenings with a program. The Zvezda Bar and Kitchen opened about a week ago with a live performance by Deep Zone Project, and then we had an acoustic evening. Their concept is quite interesting and revolves around the idea of recreating the flavors of the recent past but in a more modern, original way. Kamenitsa Brewery is another place dedicated to all who love beer. Beer is everywhere, even in the desert, and the music is a nice addition to the delicious food.
And do you have your favorite place that tempts not only with appetizing dishes but also with quality music?
