Being one of the worlds most attractive destinations, Dubrovnik is always an interesting and adventuresome place for going for a night out.
When the night slowly falls over the City, a slow change befalls upon it and all seek for that special feel, a party, sweet as the heaven's delight.
And Dubrovnik offers that special, unique, feel, lures you with its moody trance and takes you in its undreamable dream.
The City (walled core of Dubrovnik) is the centre for most of the cultural and party happenings in Dubrovnik, like its been since the ancient times.
Nightlife in Dubrovnik begins every night after sundown as people start to walk up and down the main street - Placa street (Stradun), in a kind of a customary walk before the good times get rolling. After the few roundabouts you go get a drink or two for warm up in one of the many bars or pubs, depending upon your preference.
Dubrovnik at night - People walking up and down Placa street in the evening
You will notice that most of the bars in Dubrovnik are small and cozy. However what they miss in size, they compensate in numbers. Almost every side street in the City has a few venues, bars or pubs. Some are more popular than the other. Since the bars can not fit all the people inside, the people crowd the street and it is usual for the waiter to serve you in the street, close to the bar.
The pubs and bars work mostly until 0100 AM. However, some of the owners have a way to unofficially extend the working hours until a police patrol comes to warn them about the closing time.

Easier events with romantic or rather quiet atmosphere are quite often. The most popular places for relaxed feel are Buža bars below the City walls, any of the beach bars in Uvala Lapad (Lapad bay), Copacabana beach on Babin Kuk, Banje and many other....
Special atmosphere can always be expected at Buniceva poljana where the bars have large table areas on the small plateau of Bunic square. Troubadour Jazz Cafe is responsible for great atmosphere as the owners, local musician family, are making live performances every night.
