Hvar Island nightlife revolves around exciting Hvar Town which has become the town that never sleeps--at least not from June to September. The seaside promenade, Riva, and the old town host most of the bars and clubs. You have your choice of venues and, if you get bored there's also nightlife in Jelsa. Stari Grad is, umm, quiet and in the rest of the island, people have to work for a living. Sad.
Hvar Town Nightlife
Hvar's watering hole of choice is the Carpe Diem cocktail bar right on the waterfront. The seating is cushy, the cocktails long and fruity and the people-watching is the best on the Croatian coast. During the day, it's a relaxed hangout even as the tempo increases each night as the DJ gets his groove on. Carpe Diem also has a chic beach bar across the water on one of the Pakleni islands.
This beachside bar-restaurant emits a laid-back vibe about a 2km walk west of Hvar Town along the coast. Relax on a sunbed during the day, watch the sunset over frosty cocktails and then flirt with new friends as night falls.
This chic dance club is near Hvar's market, within walking distance of the old town. The great music and friendly atmosphere have made it a favorite with tourists and locals alike. The action really heats up after 2am when DJs work the crowd into a frenzy and performers mount the small stage.
Caffe bar Sidro
Right on St Stephen's Square in central Hvar, you can start your day with fantastic coffee or cool off at the end of the day with one of the imaginative cocktails. The lime cocktails are particularly recommended.
Adriana Top Bar
If the previous hotspots are too agitated, head to the top of the Adriana hotel for this stylish cocktail bar with a magnificent view over the harbour.
