A Guide to the Nightlife in Croatia
The nightlife is Croatia is fast-paced and exciting. There are all manner of nightspots to frequent, right from traditional Irish pubs to cocktail bars and rock clubs.

Music is played at loud volumes on the streets of Croatia, whether it is soul, rock, jazz or even Slavic - the disc jockeys in this Eastern European country like their music loud. Alcohol is relatively inexpensive, and beer is very cheap. Cocktails are mixed with flair and panache, creativity and entertainment being the order of the day.

The best indicators of clubbing trends are the young Croatians. They migrate from urban dwellings to island discos, lighting up the nightlife there. During winter, Zagreb, Rijeka and Split come alive at night, and during the summer, the islands, Hvar and Pag, bring the night to life.

Zagreb, the capital, has the best pulsating nightlife; it has ceaseless variety, with various live music bars, cafes and clubs all across town. The Upper Town draws the glamorous crowd to places like Peperoncino and the Oliver Twist pub. The Lower Town provides night time entertainment in Bogoviceve, which has Skola and Bulldog; and the Branimir Centre, which has the Boom Bar.

Split is also a great city to party in, with summer nights spent in a Mediterranean style. Beach fronted hotpots like Diocletian's Palace may a bit of a distance from town, but is worth the journey altogether. The Palace has a plethora of nightclubs, bars and pubs, all attracting the mercurial student populace. Some of the places to check out are Po Bota, Ghetto Club and Red Room. Another beach fronted extravaganza is the Bacvice complex, which contains a host of clubs and restaurants which overlook the glorious beaches in the area.

Even though the nightlife isn't as prolific as in Zagreb, Istria does not fall too far behind. Some of the best hotspots include the disco in Aruba, Rock Club Uljanek and Monte Serpente. You are sure to enjoy the clubs in Istria with the excellent atmosphere.

Dubrovnik is perhaps the most visited destination in Croatia, second only to Zagreb. The quaint town is very attractive, and visitors flock regularly to its ocean view locales. The nightlife mainly revolves around the beach with places like Eastwest Beach Club. Celebrities tend to visit this particular nightspot, much to the delight of people-watching enthusiasts. Here, the nightlife mainly consists of fine dining and drinking and blaring music is noticeably absent from this peaceful place.
