The Definitive Guide to Nightlife in Croatia

Suffice to say, a huge part of Croatia Sail, even more so than the swim stops, is partying. Every Single Night. Here's my Top 5 places to party

We like to party!




5. Carpe Diem, Hvar

Ok, ok, so it costs 150kn to get in. And if you miss the last ferry you're buggered. BUT, it's a nightclub on it's own island! It is Party Island. How many times are you going to potentially miss the ferry home on your night out? It plays what it calls "Organic House", and everyone else calls "Deep House" but it's pretty cool to go to. You're partying on the beach.

4. Kiva, Hvar

I think half the reason I loved this place was the atmosphere, it's a tiny bar, the beer's are cheap (so get drunk here and then go to Carpe Diem and don't drink if you're on a budget). It plays all the lovely Europop songs Aussy's are so fond of when they travel, and it's a lot of fun. Everyone is excited for their trip, it's the first night, and everyone is just getting to know each other, whether it's trying to dance inside, fight your way to the bar/ toilet or hanging out on the steps whilst the sun goes down....

3. Deep, Makarska

If there is a theme in Croatia for club's, it's to put them in the wackiest places they can think of, Club Deep is in a natural cave that used to a weapons depot in WWII! This place is also known as the Rave Cave and it rocks up at No.3 because.... well, I can't really remember it. I remember being outside and I remember deciding to go home... And I remember tequila. Therefore, it must have been awesome night!

This photo perhaps says everything it needs to about the Rave Cave



2. Revelin, Dubrovnik

If you weren't content with having got a ferry to a club, or partying in a cave/ ex- WWII weapons depot then you can go visit Revelin. This club is an old fortress in Dubrovnik, now known as party central. Bar's all around, loads of space to dance, even when it's packed. There are DJ's playing live- and even bands some nights- there are dancer's on stage. I could have stayed the whole night and partied on and on. It so could easily have been favourite place.... but then I paid 250kn for 4 shots of Tequila & my wallet was not happy!

Definitely not our guide, Jordi, partying in Revelin

1. Hattrick's Inbox, Split

Whenever I go to Split, I make sure my night ends at Inbox. There is a club you can go to after, but most of my group were disappointed by it. Inbox is such fun, it's an outdoor bar on the harbour with a cocktail bar outside, which is expensive (but go to Charlie's Bar first for drinks if you're on a budget, they almost always have a Happy Hour deal each day) and you can dance the night away outside. It's small, and it gets really warm, but it's always a good atmosphere.

Have you been to any of the above bars? Where was your favourite?

  2. Haha, it definitely looks like you had a blast! I'm pretty sure I could never keep up with you in a million years but I would have fun trying! :) I had wanted to check out Carpe Diem but didn't end up making it to Hvar. Oh well, next time! :)

    1. It was a lot of fun, and in spite of the way this post looks, it was pretty relaxed and no one really forced you to party hard. We just happened to be that sort of group!

  3. I have been to all but one of these places (pre child) and funnily enough I looked as hammered as you all do. Although my photos have less middle finger action. Thanks for linking up with us for #SundayTraveler again.

    1. Which one haven't you been to? Mmm... I guess that was the alcohol.

  4. You use "KN for currency but I keep seeing "HRK" has the initials for currency when doing conversions. How do I know which to use?

    1. They are both the same thing, most conversion sites like xe.com will use HRK. As you'll see from my post about Villa Spiza ( http://www.wanderlustin.co.uk/2014/08/villa-spiza-my-new-favourite-restaurant.html ) it is often written as "kn", just an abbreviation for "kuna" I suppose?

  5. Wow I wish I had the stamina to hang out late at night after a full day of touring the various parts of Dalmatia, fun

    1. To be fair, in spite of us setting off early each morning (the boats would leave at 6,30am) we'd generally spend a lot of time at sea during the day & not get to wherever we were visiting until 2pm or so. That time was spent sleeping or sunbathing (or both) :) so plenty of time not to burn the candle at both ends.

  6. Wow, this is crazy! I'm not sure I could handle all that partying. I was suppose to go to Hvar at one point. Those clubs look like a lot of fun.

    1. Sure you could :) it's adrenaline, I'm not usually a party girl, but Croatia Sail brings it out in you.
