By day, stylish cafés at the clock-tower end of Stradun do a brisk trade from breakfast time past dusk. By night, 360 degrees does superb cocktails on the terrace by the Old Port, while SkyBar still has a buzz about it.

Escape the crowds at two rocky terrace beach bars cut into its seafacing city walls, named simply Buža I and Buža II. Both stay open late in summer, although by then half the world has flocked to the landmark Hard Jazz Caffe Troubadour. And for drinks right on the beach, try the East-West club.
