Where to Drink
Home to a countless number of cafés of all shapes and sizes, Novi Pazar offers a variety of different options for daytime coffees and nightlife depending on what you might be looking for, ranging from more relaxed bars and cafés to a few upmarket nightclubs and an assortment of hookah lounges. Keep in mind that many places along the pedestrian street as well as a number of cafés and hookah lounges are alcohol-free, so if you’re looking for something stronger than coffee or soft drinks, make sure to check the menu before sitting down.
