Arsenal Wine Bar
Lokanda's owner, Mario Hajdarhodic, recently opened this bar and lunch spot in an old boatbuilding warehouse, in what was the city's covered boatyard in medieval days. Low lighting and a view through two ancient arches make it a romantic place to try 35 Croatian wines by the glass (go next door to Hajdarhodic's wine store for more). Look for the obscure Crljenak, the grape that was transplanted in America as Zinfandel.
