Everything you could wish for to while away your summer nights, you'll find in Split. Split locals party with Mediterranean abandon and then rinse away the night's devilry on the beach. The two main hotspots are the ancient streets within Diocletian's Palace and the Bacvice complex a couple of kilometres east of town in the Bacvice neighbourhood. Linking them is Riva, the waterfront promenade that is lined with lively cafes, bars and restaurants.

Within the Diocletian palace walls new bars, cafes and hangouts are constantly slipping in and out of fashion while the Bacvice complex houses a panoply of restaurants, clubs, and bars and overlooks Bacvice beach.

Old Town

Here are some of the best places to drink and carouse in the Old Town :

Po Bota
On Subiceva, this is a mellow hangout for sipping coffee or sloshing back a beer or two.

Academia Club Ghetto
On Dosud, it's oh-so-arty but comfortable and relaxing at any time of the day.

Teak
Calm and collected, the vibe here (Majstora Jurja 11) is relaxing whether on the terrace or nestling into the interior.

Fluid
This cafe-bar on Dosud prides itself on its high quality house music and cheap cocktails. It's the pulsating center of a street known for its trendy young bars.

Luxor
(Kraj Sv Ivana 11, tel 021 341 082)
Right on Peristyle, this comfortable venue is a great place to relax from morning to night, grazing on sandwiches, perusing the newspapers or just people-watching from the comfortable cushions. And the food is good.

Cakula
On Split's seaside promenade (obala Hrvatskog narodnog preporoda 6), this cafe is ideal for watching the world go by. Check out the beautifully frescoed interior.

Charlie’s Bar
This Aussie-owned bar just outside the Palace at Kruziceva 5, is the most popular backpacker hangout in Split. The loose, easygoing vibe has created an ever-growing fan base among locals and travellers alike.

ST-Riva
On Obala hrvatskog narodnog preporoda 18 overlooking Riva from the Old Town, this cocktail bar on a terrace affords great views of the seaside and the port. Dancing happens later on at night.

Fabrique FUN & BBQ Pub
This super-trendy bar is known for its craft beer, both local and international. But there's more! Within this vast space at Trg Franje Tudmana 3 you can dine on barbecue or pub fare, linger over coffee or sip a cocktail while admiring the quirky decor. Later on, DJs or a live band animate the crowd.

Marcvs Marvlvs Spalatensis
Billed as a "library jazz bar" on Papaliceva 4 this quiet, cozy bar has walls lined by books, occasional live music and a bohemian, literary crowd. It's run by a poet who named the place after Marko Marulic, the "father of Croatian literature.

Marjan Hill

On Marjan hill, there are incredible views from Vidilica cafe, a favorite among the locals.

Club Jungla
Overlooking the ACI Marina west of the city centre at the foot of Marjan Hill, Club Jungla is a great place for sunset cocktails. After dark the action heats up as DJs and rock bands take over.

Near the Old Town

Quasimodo
Just north of Diocletian's Palace, this party spot gets the crowd moving to the sounds of live blues, jazz, rock and star DJs. It's a good place to catch up on the local talent.

Central the Club
Also north of the Old Town on Trg Gaje Bulata 4, this two-story nightclub is known for its incredible sound system.  Every night is theme night here with renowned DJs, performers and acrobats doing their part to make the crowds roar.

Klub Kocka
Yes, it is grungy but the friendly, casual vibe in this performance space on Slobode 28, northeast of the town centre make it a popular hangout for locals looking for the latest punk, electro or techno sounds.

Jazzbina
North of the Old Town at Sinjska 5, here's the spot to watch live sports on a giant TV. Live music, pub grub and a vast selection of beer make it immensely popular.
