Are you ready for 'Brain wash' in Ohrid?

2 minutes to read

I always recommend people to visit Ohrid just because of the huge historical and cultural heritage. When it comes to nightlife, I can’t say that it is better to be here than in Belgrade, or any other city. But there is one place that makes me doubt this statement.

It is called Jazz Inn and it is only two years younger than me. As you can expect from a place that functions this long, that they have a good reason for that. It is a family and friends of that family that run this place. The customers are in the same category, friends and family. Those who visits once will in an unexplainable way connect with the place, and for sure come again. I would like to know if there is an existing person on this earth that have visited Jazz inn only once. If so, I would like to buy them a drink here. Call me :)

As I mentioned, this place functions for 28 years or so. They have regular customers. The regulars feels that if the place is crowded they can help the staff. This is a place without lines, where you can find the best cocktails ever. The bartender, Zoki, who is a stand up comedian, can entertain you while he is preparing for you a strong cocktail served in a big pot along with small shot glasses so you can share with the whole table. Yeah sure, 'share with others’. Take the cocktails “Brain wash” or “Purple jazz”, they are Sweet as the first love and strong as the last one.

Several years ago, the neighbors started complaining because people made noise outside the bar (the smoking restriction made people move their party outside), so the bar working hours got changed into working hours of a cafe, and Jazz Inn lovers went out on the streets to protest. Nothing changed, unfortunately, neither the quality of Jazz Inn. People just love this place. Amazing everything.
