Hotel Mogren is an authentic city hotel categorized with three stars. Built in 1934, it is an undisputed tourist symbol of Budva. Located near the walls of the Old Town, it was named after the nearby beach Mogren, one of the most beautiful beaches in Budva. The Mogren tourist season 2018 will be remembered for numerous novelties. After the adaptation of Gradska kafana (English: City Tavern), Mogren Hotel welcomed guests in a new, redesigned edition with an improved gastronomic offer, as well as a series of cultural and entertainment events on the terrace of the pop-up restaurant Makarul. Musical concerts by Zorica Kondža, band Cambi, Vanna and Kaliopi attracted many tourists and locals to the most beautiful terrace in the city. In the upcoming tourist season 2019, Mogren will continue to surprise all tourists and locals with improved event offer.
Pop-up restaurant Makarul, located on the first floor of Hotel Mogren, is the first pop-up restaurant in Montenegro. A pop-up restaurant is a provisional event designed to showcase culinary talents at a temporary location. Makarul's pop-up restaurant is the pioneer of new trends in cooking and catering, with a focus on the essence of providing restaurant services – which is the content of the served plate. Makarul offers traditional and modern cuisine in a pleasant ambience with an amazing view of Old Town Budva.
Although quite spacious, HG Budvanska Rivijera’s Gradska kafana is often too small to accommodate all those who want to enjoy the beautiful ambience, excellent music as well as local and international cuisine.
