Tolkien's places will always have a special place in hearts of most beer people in Croatia. What's obvious is obvious though - Tolkien's in neither of its Opatovina locations doesn't come close to matching the charm its original location had. And the relevance the original location head as the sole place for beer lovers who wanted to try and taste more than what's available in stores and regular bars. However, it's still a name with very good reason, and still relevant, so news of this, second, larger Opatovina location did draw a lot of attention, and it's a welcome addition, as the other location is, indeed a bit too small for the crowd it can draw. This place has a good amount of taps, some interesting, some less so. Still have to gauge the prices, the relatively high cutoff for 0.5l of anything (though they did have some interesting sales), but not going too high either compared to others, perhaps to the contrary. While things like the Zmajska RIS promotion still do happen, it doesn't have a particular draw when it comes to new beers to try honestly. Friendly staff, reading my mind when it came to a large glass of water (much appreciated), can't gauge how great their beer knowledge is for now. Great prices for coffee (which wasn't as great). The draw to "geeks", be they of the "beer" or the "regular" variety (preferably both) is clear, and it's one of the best places in town / the country for them I reckon, but as a beer place, it just doesn't stand out compared to the best places in town. It's a good place though, and I hope it fulfills more of its potential.

Next to the Tolkien's bar on Opatovina Street there is it's bigger, younger brother - The Big Tolk! Opened in 2017, they have a large place inside and a big terrace in the back. Selection is not very special, but they have some good offers and discounts. Regular Zmajska on tap.
