Split nightlife offers a lot of opportunities for socializing, drinking, dancing, and overall having a great time. The city breathes with the party spirit wherever you go. One of the important things for young people who visit Split is of course to find out what kind of night life Split offers.
Split is a place of thousands of cafe-bars practically everywhere in the city. But don’t worry, this is a way of living in Split. If you are looking for after-hours clubs, Split wont disappoint you.
In this article:
There are plenty of bars and clubs for you to check out in Split. Many of these are in and around the city center area so you won’t have to go far to find them.
If you do want to go out of the center, make your way to Bacvice beach where you’ll also find a number of great nightspots.
A popular way of meeting people and getting to spend time 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. Find out how to start your voyage though the Split old town!

Split nightlife map!
Split is a blessed city for young people in search of nightlife entertainment. The old times have gone forever when I was young, when the only place to dance were Diocletian cellars under the palace.
Those were the days of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Here is my version of how a good evening Split nightlife itinerary could look like, starting from Riva promenade or at one of most popular clubs inside the old city walls, and probably ending at Bacvice beach.
Before you start looking for after-hours nightlife points you should know that the best clubs are away from the old town. The next detail is that locals won’t show their faces in any nightclub before 11 pm so take your time warming up in many cafes and bars in the old city.
Pub Crawl Split
Best night you will never forget with the Pub Crawl in Split. These events have been growing in popularity over the last few years with hordes of tourists signing up for Pub Crawls.
They are especially popular during the summer when it can attract up to 50 people each night.
Pub Crawl Split is a great way to meet travelers from all around the world while sampling some of the best nightspots the city has to offer.
Visiting a great variety of bars and clubs, these pub crawls are very dynamic and are tailored to suit the crowd every night.
- Where? Central part of Riva, right across Diocletian’s palace.
- When? Departs at 10pm nightly from May-September. From October-April by appointment.

If you’re looking to get drunk this is honestly the cheapest way. You have full access to all-you-can-drink bar for 100 minutes, so choose your favorite shooters or cocktails.
If you’re still standing afterwards, you’ll skip the queue and enter directly in club “Tropic” (entrance fee included), right on the beach with live DJs. To attempt to cure your hangover, next morning’s breakfast is free, which you’re welcome to enjoy in your also free complimentary Pub Crawl t-shirt.

The Riva is a great place to start. Why not from ST Riva bar, a cocktail bar with inspiring views of the Riva promenade and port, and the best place to cool on hot summer nights.
On number 10 Ghetto Club, a bar-gallery offers drinks and art exhibitions mixed with rock, jazz, funk and disco. In summer you get outdoor tables in a courtyard lit with flaming torches, and in winter there’s an upstairs lounge with a grand piano.
Most people use Ghetto as the start or end of their night. The dress is very casual, so you can go any time you want.
Immediately opposite on number 1, there is a tiny Fluid bar, a cozy place to keep on warming up.
Down the steps a bar Puls 2 near Hotel Slavija (in Buvinina 1street) is another place that serves drinks at a row of low-level tables outside in summer, with cushions on the stone steps so you can sit out.
