There are plenty of bars and clubs for you to check out in Split. Many of these are in and around the city centre area so you won’t have to go far to find them. If you do want to go a little farther afield, make your way to Bačvice Beach where you’ll also find a number of great nightspots.
A popular way of meeting people and getting to hang out at some of the city’s coolest bars and clubs is by going on a pub crawl with Pub Crawl Split. During the summer, these pub crawls take place every night, leaving from Peristil by the cathedral at 9pm. A wild night is guaranteed, and on busy nights these pub crawls can attract up to around 50 people.
One of our favourite things to do at night in Split is to head down to the city’s main promenade, Riva, after the sun sets. Lined with cafés, restaurants and bars, it’s located right beside the ocean and is popular meeting spot for locals and visitors alike. At night, space on the benches along Riva is at a premium, thanks to all the people who go there to hang out and chat. You’ll often find stalls set up along the promenade, even after dark, plus lots of the city’s festivals are centred on this area.
