Sometimes it is hard to distinguish between a café and a bar in Belgrade: both serve coffee and alcoholic beverage and some serve food. Many are quit coffee places during the day and noisy, busy and smoky at night. All are open daily from early morning to at least midnight. Cafés and bars in Belgrade are vey often full during working hours just like in the evening every days of week. That may sound unimaginably to people from nation where cafés are full only at the weekend. All around Belgrade café and bar terraces spread onto pavements in the spring and summer months.
There are a couple of places which are worth of visiting if you want to have a rest after shopping or walking through the city of Belgrade.

Cafés and bars in Strahinića Bana Street, locally known as "Silicon Valley", are the fanciest in Belgrade and people usually come here to see and to be seen, especially if you are owner of a smart car and wish to park it ostentatiously close to your chosen venue.
The second café zone, Obilićev Venac Street, is located between two very popular shopping malls in the city center and it is closed to the main pedestrian zone. If you don't like to be in a crowd then this might not be the place for you.
Njegoševa Street is lined with a series of fancy cafés and bars and it is an excellent place to stop for a drink after shopping. It is located between two shopping zones (Kralja Milana Street and Bulevar Kralja Aleksandra).
