The first gay bar in Dubrovnik should be located in Marojice Kaboge Street, allegedly where there was a shop before. The caterers who intend to open it did not want to comment on anything until the opening was 100% certain, but the citizens were happy to share their opinion with the press, writes Dubrovački vjesnik

“There were so many gays, male and female, this summer that it’s not normal. Thirty percent of the restaurant work I had was thanks to them this summer, and that’s no small thing. They are the best guests in the world, the best consumers, extremely smart, intelligent, decent and cultured people,” said Nikola Nikić, who is also a caterer.

“I said this summer, whoever opens a gay club first will bring in a lot of money. And first and foremost, it’s my idea, the story has spread, and lo and behold, I’ve heard about it opening too,” he added, stressing that the announced location would be ideal because no one would mind the noise. Besides, it’s the only dead-end in town.

“Indeed, those who have traveled the world know that every city in the world has one or more gay clubs. Will I go there? One hundred percent, I will! I am ‘open-minded.’ I’ve been to gay clubs in Florida. It’s a lucrative business. Just as we knew Hard Rock would come one day, here it came, just as Mcdonald’s would come one day. As everyone arrived, so did the gay club. Welcome! It is high time that they also have a post where they will hang out, which is better. I welcome the first gay bar!” Nikić concludes.

“Dubrovnik needs everything. Of course, as long as it is tasteful and in some standards, it is not debauchery,” said Edi Jertec from Dubrovnik, who added:

“Dubrovnik is a city that is open to everyone. After all, Dubrovnik is one of the few to host a cruise ship for gays, men or women. Dubrovnik has even had gay conferences. Everyone has always been welcome in Dubrovnik. They are cultured people, specific like everyone else. I don’t see a problem with that.”

“Excellent, I am in favor,” agrees fellow citizen Katarina Dadic, adding:

“It should have happened a long time ago, and other things, not just a gay bar, because there are more and more guests in Dubrovnik looking for something different. In my opinion, it’s a complete success; whoever opens it will profit. There are a lot of gay guests in our country. I have my customers, believe me, they are the best guests. They say they’re best friends with women, too.”
