There’s a chic, Eastern vibe to this lounge bar in the faintly anonymous Centar Kaptol mall (also home to Cohiba’s and the popular Jackie Brown’s). The decor is all jewelled lights, throw pillows and gauzy fabric, and the lighting is kept flatteringly low. The bartenders know a thing or two about cocktails and the drinks are always on the money. Khala gets packed out with Zagreb’s pretty people on the weekend when they start pumping out house tunes, but if that’s not your scene, you can always retreat to the relative calm of the next door wine bar, where they serve a good selection of the best Croatian wines by the glass.
