My visit to this night club was very interesting. when I decided to go to Papaya I did not know that it could be very difficult to get there. I got there after climbing at least thousands of steps (joking, it is situated on the hill so you need to be fit to get there). It has a lovely location as you could view the city from top. Club is reasonable and it is one of the popular place for youngsters. Open air bar and dance floor was a good experience. Music was not bad either. I highly recommend this place but only in summer.
Londoner at Kaptol Centar is one of the "in" nightlife spots. It attracts slightly older population = 25 and up. However, I've noticed more and more younger people there--the problem with all good bars nationwide! Ironicaly, you'll find notice "Admittance under 23 not allowed" but when you look at the faces, no way many of them could be even 20.
I like Londoner for several reasons:
--> bigger than most other bars (still gets crowded)
--> good choice of Belgian beer (dark Leffe!!!)
--> good music after midnight with lots of Croatian stuff; you'll find many people dancing
Entrance is free except on weekends after 20 h when they charge 20 kn (1 euro=7,5 kn). You get a receipt for those 20 kn and can use it to pay for drinks.
Drinks are as expensive as at other popular bars (Leffe 18 kn, Campari-Fanta 22 kn, etc.).
Dress Code: Come as you are, but not on weekends!
St. Tropez 1 & 2 are both located at lake Jarun and function as bars during the day. While St. Tropez 2 serves drinks until midnight, St. Tropez 1 turns into night club and the party extends into late night hours... I highly recommend both - the No. 2 because they have best coffee at the lake area and No. 1 for great atmosphere + wonderful view of Zagreb city lights in the distance.

Dress Code: Some dress casual, some fancy (even during the day).
Place which is always full! Drink is not expensive, people are nice, various rock programs, on Saturdays is funk music (Uncle Funk)!
Dress Code: No dress code!
Various programs-concerts, house, trance parties.. Personally I don't like that club-very often full of stoned kids (teenagers) and "hicks"..
Dress Code: No special dresscode
