Mr. Fogg

Marker ikona
Cafe
 

Mr. Fogg is the name of the protagonist of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days, but also of an imaginative bar in Martićeva Street, whose interior is inspired by the steampunk science fantasy genre, and the drinks it serves hail from all around the globe.

Emil Tocaurer, the owner of the bar, is a big fan of steampunk, a subgenre of science fantasy dedicated to “an alternate history which is different because the future happened earlier”, meaning – a more technologically advanced, exotic Victorian age, that is, the second half of the 19th century. At that era, the humanity’s faith in its technological progress was without end, whereas today, the memories from that era represent an imaginary world in which we can unhinge for at least a little while, enjoying ourselves in the delightful bar.

The drinks on offer are characterized, for example, by teas and rums from all over the world, gins from Scotland, Great Britain, Austria, Spain, Netherlands, Columbia, and Germany, high-quality domestic beer, and many others. The interior is rife with old machine parts, various antique and retro items fitted into a wacky, yet harmonious whole, and offers an atmosphere which cannot be found anywhere else in Zagreb.

 
 
 
 

RELATED

Atelier Ostrman

One of the more interesting locations in Lopašićeva Street is the art studio of the painter Tomislav Ostrman, Atelier Ostrman, where he exhibits and sells his own pieces and those of his colleagues and friends, alongside organizing small social events in this attractive workshop.

Garderoba Concept Store

With the opening of Ana Ivančić’s Garderoba, Zagreb got its first conceptual showroom for Scandinavian fashion. Garderoba is a carefully thought-out project, a room whose elements have all been designed by brilliant Croatian designers and architects, thus also adding a Croatian brand to the offer.

Slatka priča

The Slatka Priča pastry shop was started in 2013, and is currently in three places – Kranjčevićeva Street, Ivana Brlić Mažuranić Street in Zagreb’s Malešnica neighborhood, and, of course, Martićeva Street (since 2016), more precisely at the busy corner of Martićeva and Smičiklasova.

Mikrofon

Mikrofon is a music school started in 2009, located in the charming inner courtyard of 19 Martićeva Street. Its predecessor was the Vocal Studio Maraton vocal workshop from Rijeka, and the school has since then grown from offering single singing lessons to group singing and lessons for children, as well as instrumental music lessons.

Medveščak Library

The Medveščak Library, our neighborhood’s branch of Zagreb City Libraries, encompasses three departments – adult, children’s and youth (also known as “Idi pa Vidi”, or “Come and See”). Besides normal library duties, the library also engages in setting up various exhibitions in its windows, and workshops in the rooms of the youth and children’s departments.
