The city is traditionally dotted with public and private New Year’s parties. In case you don’t have plans yet but want to do something on Sunday evening, here are a few interesting places.
There is always the city-sponsored outdoor party, this year organized at the SCC mall plaza. The star of the evening at the outdoor party is Zdravko Čolić, a Sarajevo-born singer who came to fame in former Yugoslavia with his pop hits.
No reservations are needed for the party at The Bar, starting from 7 pm on Sunday. The place is a small jazz and blues bar, so expect a more personal experience.
A more sophisticated New Year’s party is hosted by the SOne Sky Bar on the rooftop of Marriot. Lana Hamza band will play on December 31. There is a KM20 (€10) individual admission fee though, and parties of 4 and more need a reservation.
Fans of electronic music might want to go to Hi 2018 party at Dom Mladih. DJs from Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia and Italy will play at the party that starts at 9 pm. The ticket price is KM35.
The party at Coloseum club and casino has a range of New Year’s party tickets, depending on access to parts of the club. The star of the evening on December 31 is Neno Murić. Reservations required.
For a full authentic feel, go to a place like Bazeni. Folk music, an in-house band and a promise of good time, with a likely massive hangover the next day. Reservation price: KM50.
