I see that most of us (sight)runners have at least one thing in common. Drinking beer and eating healthy. But mostly beer.

On sight running tour usually I give directions where and what to eat and drink, so I said to myself I will write it down and just send a link.

I know that this loses the personal touch, but let me explain that this post isn't sponsored it is based on my own experiences as a local and I update and change it all the time. I also will not promote it I any way. Places mentioned below are actual places that I visit with my family and friends.

Let's start with our favorite places to hang out.

  • TOZD. It's a nice bar where with great service reasonable prices. We're usually having a draft beer from Slovenian micro brewer Human Fish. They're also making great Aperol Spritz and tapas. They don't have any website but here is the location.
  • Petkovskovo Nabrezje. Place with many bars and a really amazing view of the fish market and Ljubljana's castle. Bars to visit there: Caffe Petkovšek, Premier Pub and Fany &Mary. We're usually visiting Fany & Mary because service in other two is impossible. Map.
  • Knafljev prehod. It's an area of few pubs that stay open a little bit longer from 1 to 3 am. You should go to Cutty Sark Pub if you're thirsty and As Apperitivo if you're hungry. Map.
  • Za popent. Store with rich assortment of local and foreign Beers. Map.
  • Last but not least Pivnica Union. It's a big brewery were they serve Union and Laško beer. But before you say hey they're serving that beer everywhere in Slovenia let me say that they also serve many other types of beers. You can even have a degustation "plate". Nice thing is that the food there is also great plus the place is also pocket friendly! Map.

And places to eat:

  • EX Figovec Slovenska Hiša II. Food my grandmother cooked. Link to the map.

  • Gostilna na Gradu. Also in the Castle with a menu called "walk across Slovenia". Web.
  • Valentin. Fish market + Restaurant. Map.
