Great place for meeting alternative folks and getting away from more mainstream bars in the city centre. Cheap drinks and cool people, well worth checking out!

Technically an illegal squat on an old army base, but is general more accepted and legit than Rog just down the road. Went here a couple of times so soak up the atmosphere by day and night, and take in the street art. I get the impression it's pretty busy some nights but best to check it out first as... More

This place is just awesome. Photos of this permanent art squat brought me to the city of Ljubljana, and being there stole my heart forever. It's exciting with something always going on, a complete immersion into alternative culture, and there's cool, interesting art everywhere. Even though I was there while all the students were away for the summer (apparently it... More

Covered in street art, this area is tuely alternative. Was a military building but now full of squats, bars and venues. Well worth a look. Right next to the new nuseum area. There's a hostel which was a prison which does tours at 2pm .

We stayed in the prison-hostel in the area so naturally we explored this amazing creativity explosion. Fascinating freedom of expression, great atmosphere, party people all around. You just feel vibrant and reenergized.

one of the most exciting places in Ljubljana. You can party there, hang with friends and make new ones.

Rock concerts (for 100-200 people), cheap drinking, gay club, creative design in the garden of this Metekova concept. I felt like in Barcelona, visually "speaking", because the music is heavy, not sweet.

Very relaxed vibe. Wouldn't suggest going if you're uncomfortable with crows, drugs or alcohol. Toilet facilities aren't the most clean.
