Hvar Town is Croatia's top party place, just an hour by fast catamaran from Split city, with the most vibrant nightlife  from May to September, especially in first fifteen days of August, when the Italians arrive in hordes.

Bars and restaurants line the large town St. Stephan square and continue down the sea quay to the Carpe Diem club, probably its most famous club (and its most expensive one), the only club with its own exclusive beach bar 10 minutes by water-taxi from sister venue Carpe Diem Bar in Hvar Town.

Hula Hula beach Club is a place for the best after beach parties, about a 2 km walking distance west of Hvar Town along the coast. This is the most popular bar in Hvar town and every night will become a party night.

Kiva bar is the oldest bar in Hvar town Croatia. It stands at the same since 1970 but today has became too crowded with tourists for my taste. It used to be one of the last strongholds of good rock and pop music.

Kiva offers good old-fashioned fun, with affordable prices that still lower than any other place in the town. If you want to have a good time and feel the real atmosphere of Hvar, you shouldn't miss this cult bar, despite it happens to be jam-packed and it takes too long to order a drink.

Veneranda club Hvar is another night club for a crazy summer night out. It's located in just a short 2 minute walk from city center, within the walls of onetime monastery, with a pool and dance floor.

Set in a hillside Venetian fortress on the western side of Hvar town's harbor, the Veneranda is an open-air disco with DJ. Keep in mind that this club charges the entrance fee ( from 120 Kuna - 16 € ) and drink prices are rather high.
