3 Best Bars in Hvar, Central Dalmatia


Fodor's choice

Whipping up what are arguably the best cocktails on the island, this craft bar sits four minutes southwest of Hvar Town's main square in a beautiful stone alleyway location. The expert mixologists cover the classics, offer signature blends, and cater to guest requests, using natural ingredients and high-class liquor brands. It's closed October through April. 

Carpe Diem Beach

Fodor's choice

A legendary beach club popular with twentysomethings, this has been Hvar Town's top party destination for years. Go during the day at no entrance fee for a more relaxed vibe, great views, and the best people-watching. The serious partying starts around 5 pm and continues until early morning. To reach this club on Stipanska, a small island off the coast of Hvar, you can simply catch a taxi-boat (about €10; at night the transfer is included in the club entrance price) from the harbor next to the Hvar-side Carpe Diem Bar, which also has parties. A good selection of food is available at the on-site restaurant, with sushi being served until 9 pm. The club is closed October through May.

Hula Hula

Built into the rocks overlooking the sea, this wooden beach bar attracts bathers throughout the day with its chill music, lounge chairs, VIP tables, and massages. Many stay for the sunset as the beach club transforms into a dance party with DJ music and cocktails. Even Beyoncé has been spotted here. Note that reservations are only possible on-site, and payment is cash only.
