The title of my thesis is „Space and remembrance – the forgotten Zagreb coffeehouses“. Focus of this paper is to explore the role that coffeehouses played in the everyday life of informants during the 1970s and the 1980s. Through informants interactions with other guests and with the staff and through the ways they used the space, my goal was to discover the ways in which a physical space of the coffeehouse transformed into a symbolic space. First café bars were opened in Zagreb in the early 70s and they intertwined with coffehouses. During their night out, young people would visit a few places that would include coffeehouses, café bars and disco clubs and through different routes they lined the town, in search for fun. The research is conducted through half-structured interviews with five informants, while using the fenomenological perspective.
