Split’s nightlife scene is going through another period of consolidation. Of last year’s ambitious new openings, Imperium is still going strong but unfortunately the more underground Minus 3 has now closed.

There’s always a generous clutch of designer bars (Clo Bar, Hedonist) that serve coffees during the dayime before turning the volume up come nightfall.

A row of late-opening bars in the Bačvice beach-side pavilion stay busy over the summer; the ever-popular O’Hara is on the shore just beyond.

Grungey alternative club Kocka appears to be working again after one of its many long pauses; while Quasimodo has carved a niche for itself as the best all-round place for alternative music and indie-clubbing.
