Milan RANKOV Bates stepped into the hospitality industry back in 1989. He called his first bar "3B" - Bates, Backa, Bunjevacko kolo. Two years later from ul. Zagrebačke briefly moved to Bikovo, and then leased space in the former Old Bathhouse. In 1994, the "Bates" tavern finally moved to its own building, at 17 Vuk Karadžića Street, in the innermost part of the city, where it is still today. After almost three decades of continuous work and gaining the trust of guests, "Bates" has simply become a corner of catering magic. Milan's heirs grew up in it and with its progress - a daughter and two sons: Sonja, Dejan and Zoran, who today run this facility, no worse than their father. On the contrary.
