Bars in Split, Croatia

The narrow streets of Diocletian’s Palace, the historic core, and suburbs are packed with cafes that convert into bars come nightfall. Find out where the nighlife starts, discover the secret watering holes, or quiet hangouts. On our post about Bars, Clubs & Nightlife in Split we briefly covered some of the popular bars in Split, but here we reveal more, starting from quiet to loud.

Romantic Bars in Split

If you are in the mood for intimate drinks where you can have a regular conversation, a wine bar is most likely your best bet; Paradox Wine & Cheese Bar (Poljana Tina Ujevića 2) and Zinfandel (Marulićeva 2), both located in the old town have an extended list of local and regional wines, many of which are offered by the glass. Alternatively, sip on cheap cocktails and beers at ST Riva (Obala hrvatskog narodnog preporoda 18) on the Riva seafront promenade. Although the street-level terrace attracts the coffee-drinking crowd, they have a narrow stairway leading up to the upstairs bar with seating on little balconies overlooking the harbour.

Themed Bars in Split

For a little more decibel, Ghetto Bar’s (Dosud 10) courtyard on Dosud Street is a crowd collector for all walks of life with a DJ booth blasting electro-tunes to a Mojito-loving clientele. Indoors, you can throw yourself back on old couches set against crafty wall murals. Another DIY-styled interior can be found at To Je To (Nigerova 2), run by a friendly American fellah who stirs up creative cocktails as live music plays in the background. The tiny Cirkus rakija bar on Dosud Street has a bigger sister in the Bačvice neighbourhood, in the basement of an uninhabited building. Aptly named Cirkus II (Jadranska 1), this smokey rakija hideout is a meeting point for bohos, hipsters and alternatives. If you want to hang out with locals and only locals, try out Basket (Domovinskog rata 42), the oldest pub in Split, Bounty (Vinkovacka 21), a biker-billiard bar in suburbia, or Versi (Put Firula 3) for live rock music.

Exclusive Bars in Split

Strap up your stilletos and squeeze into your designer skinny jeans before heading to Egoist (Put Firula 57), located near Firule Bay, a meeting point for the city’s elite. Think commercial tunes, iPhone selfies, flashy cars parked out front, and neon-colourful cocktails. As the bar starts to fill up, so does the volume and the party is merged with neighbouring Hedonist. Come summer, InBox (Obala kneza Domagoja 1) and the adjacent F Caffe alfresco venues downtown attract a similar troop.
