You'll Probably Either Love Or Hate It
Feb 2021
You'll either love or hate this place. For me it was the latter. Their name - Only Beer - should be taken literally. That's all you can get there, barring water. Though, at the very least they don't get snide about it if you opt for water. Not bottled water, mind you. Tap water.

The staff was nice from what I could see, but the interior seemed to want to exude some kind of vibe I really didn't like. Something along the lines of "We're So Tough We Only Drink Beer And Don't Need Heating", because it was freaking cold in there. I even saw some of the guests, myself included, sitting in jackets (and probably getting taunted for it by their tough-guy friends).

The place was also plagued with cigarette smoke and seemingly no ventilation to speak of. The furniture was crude and uncomfortable, except for a small spongy-looking bench thing along one of the walls, but it was taken.

The only reason I was there in the first place was to meet with friends, I don't think I would have set foot in there otherwise.

So yeah, if you're going for that look-at-me-I'm-so-tough-I-don't-need-any-comfort kind of experience (residual puberty or hipsterism, if you ask me), then you'll love it. Otherwise, if you can't/won't drink beer and prefer not getting pneumonia - I would advise you to choose a nearby coffee shop.

But, to each their own. Someone might love the place for the exact reasons I hated it for - I respect that.

Just beer
Mar 2020 • Couples
Very popular place, with very simple concept. Basic furniture, a little bit punk rock style, with solid choice of domestic and foreign beers. Average prices, good service, and good atmosphere. Good place to stop by, relax, drink beer and chat with your friends. Too busy on weekends

Tremendous place for a true beer connoisseur
Jun 2019
20+ beers on tap at all times, balcony during the summer is a must see. No reservations nor credit cards accepted, so make sure that you get there ahead of time (especially for larger groups). There is a beautiful pizzeria just below the place, so you can always call to order, and the pizza will be at your table in under 15 mins.

Amazing place
Nov 2019 • Couples
It’s kind of a hidden place, but even on a wednesday night, it was very busy. The people are friendly, the music is kinda loud but it suits the place.

The worst staff in Belgrade
Oct 2019 • Couples
Arrogant and unfriendly waiter with beard who ruined our visit.. if you work with people, at least put some smile on your face or say goodbye (the basics of a good service)... beer was good. Would never come again.

Awesome bar
Sep 2019
I would recommend this even if you're not that into beer (like me), you'll change your mind when trying the variety of beers that they have for you to taste and enjoy. The music is awesome, the staff is very friendly and welcoming and the people that go to the bar (or at least for the 3 times I was there) were really nice. Just don't forget to have cash on you as they don't accept cards.

Worth the effort to find for beer enthusiasts!
Jul 2019
If you like beer, it is worth your effort to find Samo PIvo! It was not easy, but we persevered. Google maps seemed to fail us, telling us we were right at it but we could not see it. Dejected, we sat down for lunch at a place we COULD see.

After lunch, we asked the waiter if he knew Samo Pivo. He then pointed to a dark, dingy staircase right next door!

To find: stand facing the Balkon Restaurant. To the left, you will see a dark, concrete staircase. Take the left most stairs up one flight, and you will arrive at Samo Pivo, home of great beer options! The chalkboard lists the Serbian brews currently available on draft, with a separate menu for bottles.

The wait staff could not have been more helpful. There is a large indoor area, and extensive outdoor seating as well.

Find it and enjoy!

This might be the best bar in Belgrade
May 2019 • Friends
Samo Pivo means 'only beer' but you're spoiled for choice with 26 draught beers on tap and I don't know how many bottled beers available. It attracts a youngish crowd and the place has a great vibe with a great range of background music. I visited twice during my stay and I miss it already! They have a tie-in with Thornbridge Brewery in the UK who produce a draught beer called Belgrade Calling, which is very like Thornbridge Jaipur. It's a little difficult to find as it's accessible up some forbidding looking stairs to the left of a more prominent right on the road called Balkon so don't go in the wrong bar!

Good Beer, Interesting Venue
Apr 2019 • Couples
Samo Pivo is hidden in plain site, it may take another look to fine it. This is a verified venue on Untappd. there are some very good local beers available here, you can sit inside or out. table service is avaible. If you are a beer drinker this is a place you should visit.
