A "meyhane" is a traditional restaurant or bar in Iran, Turkey and the Bolkans. The word "meyhane" is composed of two Persian words: mey (wine) and hane (house). The word entered the Serbian and Bulgarian languages as mehana. The mehana restaurants used to serve mainly wine alongside meze until the late 19th century when rakia established itself as the quasi-official national drink of Bulgaria. In Serbia, the word mehana has mostly fallen out of use, while in Bulgaria it refers to a restaurant with traditional food, decoration and music.
