Bacvice Tips (3)

Bacvice: Bars and cafes by the beach!

The complex of bars, cafes and restaurants at Bacvice is the place to spend an evening when visiting Split.

Split's old town closes fairly early in the evenings (or at least it did when we visited in May 2007, but perhaps not so in the summer months), with only a few cafes and restaurants remaining open after dark. Therefore, much of the city's nightlife is centred around Bacvice.

A steady stream of people make the 10-15 minute walk from Split's promenade, beyond the small, sandy Bacvice beach, to the bars and cafes than line the seafront. The local youths seemed more interested in gathering underneath the nearby railway bridge with cheap bottles of beer from the supermarket - but they didn't seem to be causing any bother.

The Bacvice complex houses eating and drinking establishments on three floors. Generally, the ground level seemed to be dominated by laid back cafes with outdoor seating; the first level housed a handful of livelier bars with thumping dance music; the top floor offered a couple of large restaurants.

We spent an evening at Bacvice during our brief visit to the city:

We started off at Tropic Club Equador. This trendy, fairly upmarket bar is the first bar that you arrive at when entering Bacvice from the beach side and can be identified by its rounded glass facade, with tables overlooking the beach and sea. The area around the bar offers dozens of comfortable sofas, while the tables by the windows have cushioned armchairs. We sat between these two areas on the edge of what is probably a dance floor on busier nights, while watching the Dinamo Zagreb vs Hajduk Split football game on a big screen TV.

After the match had finished, the background music started. First this was a selection of 1970s to 1990s pop music, then the strobe lights started, the lights were dimmed and the music became more modern. We moved on to the next bar.

There are no draught beers available at Equador, but bottled beers (Zlatorog and Kaltenberg) cost 13 Kunas each.

Dress Code No dresscode was evident, but the bar seemed to attract a relatively smartly dressed crowd.

Next we moved on to Caffe Bar Bacvice. This was a busy bar situated on two levels. The upstairs level offered tables on a balcony overlooking the sea and an outdoor courtyard around the back. We stood at a table round the back, next to the bar and on the edge of an impromptu outdoor dance floor. Music videos were being projected onto an outside wall and loud dance music was pounding out, but few people seemed bothered about dancing. This is far from my ideal choice of bar, but it was an ok place to stop off for a couple of beers. As with the Equador bar, Zlatorog and Kaltenberg bottled beers are available (12 Kunas each), as well as a large selection of cocktails and spirits.

We ended the evening at the more sedate Hip Hop Bar and sat at an outdoor table on a balcony overlooking the sea (although it was too dark to actually see the sea!). This place is a cross between a cafe and a bar and has a small interior with comfortable sofas. The music coming from the Hip Hop Bar was drowned out by the loud dance music from the bars further along the strip. Beer is available on tap here, so I paid 15 Kunas for a 500ml draught Kaltenberg.

Bacvice-O'Hara: Great times!

O'hara- used to be called Shakespeare- very cool place. Went there in Euro summer 2005 and had a ball! A short walk south from the main Bacvice nightlife spot and you are there (near marina)!! on 2 levels- top is enclosed, bottom is open-air with cool couches, awesome bar and fantastic music with cool people. Is known to spot a few famous locals. I partied with local music group Tambuu and saw Slaven Bilic- Croatian soccer player. Its a great spot- especially in summer!

Dress Code nice casual; hip; trendy; basically nothing daggy and your in!!

i forget - along the sea.: bigger nightclubs

We found different places that were not oppened on Mondays or Tues nights in April. But judging from the how beuatiful the locals are, I am sure it is a sight to be scene come hot Summer nights

in Split, you don't have a bunch of options.
