NIGHTLIFE IN DUBROVNIK

The Cave bar

BARS & NIGHTCLUBS

Dubrovnik is a young city because of its university. So, there is nightlife year-round. Of course, the summer is when this city really comes to life with a spectacularly vibrant night scene.

Most bars in the Old Town are fun to check out during the summer, but in particular some bars to visit are Arsenal, Labirint, NoneNina bar, Troubadour, and Karaka. Arsenal and Labirint also double as nightclubs. NoneNina bar, Pred Dvorom 4, offer of over 180 different cocktails, a choice of wine that can satisfy even the finest palatals, huge selection of international cognacs, whiskeys, liquors, champagnes and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

For the tobacco-lovers they offer a large choice of cigarettes, Cuban Havanas cigars of world-known producers. Fuego is another club in Dubrovnik. The East West Beach Club on Banje beach is a cafe by day and a bar/club by night. Karaka, the Irish pub, is crowded year-round, and yes mainly with tourists. Arsenal is the newest addition to the Dubrovnik club scene and has live music some nights. Troubadour and Hemingway are also very nice upscale bars.

Keep in mind that all these bars are less than a 1 minute walk away from each other so you could visit all of them in one night, and really any bar or club in the Old Town of Dubrovnik.

These bars mentioned are all situated around the Church of St. Blaise. In the off-season, all of the bars are busy during the weekends, but less so on weekdays – Fuego and Arsenal would be the clubs to visit.

This summer a new wine bar by the name of D’Vino opened in Dubrovnik’s old town. They have put together a very impressive selection of domestic and imported wine available by the glass, bottle, and in tasting servings. With over 100, D’Vino has the largest selection of wine available by the glass in Dubrovnik. D’Vino, Palmoticeva 4a, Dubrovnik.

CAVE BAR

We stumbled (literally) across this bar whilst walking along the coastal path. We stopped off along the way to have a drink and enjoy the scenery and sun set…

We paid approx. £6 for 2 bottled lagers. The staff is very friendly and informative.

The toilets are situated on the 6th floor up the cliff, but inside the bar there is a lift or stairs, I learnt the hard way!

There is a slope from the bar out onto the terrace so if you have a wheelchair it’s ok in this hilly part of the world. There are 4 steps going to the actual bar to get a drink, but all the indoor seating area is situated along the slope. There is additional seating up the stairs.

If you come here, sit outside for the tranquility and views. It isn’t a wild night out, more for couples but definitely visit for the experience of seeing a cave bar!

Coming soon…
