Student Split: Nightlife, and Where to Go Clubbing

Clubs in Split

Split is not really a candidate for the world’s best clubbing city but it does offer options for every type of clubber. During the summer, we have a lot of festivals such as Ultra Europe, which I will focus on in another blog. But for non-festival dates here are some suggestions for going out in Split.

First of all, I would say Vanilla bar Split Poljud is the best club in Split when you combine atmosphere, people, the place itself and the music (a mixture of current hits and local music) – and during the summer the DJ adjusts his set to mainstream music. Location by swimming pools gives it even better vibe. Poljudsko šetalište b.b.

After Vanilla, my suggestion for clubbing is Judino Drvo at Kopilica. It’s completely on the edge, and a Mecca for local hipsters. Surprisingly, Split does not support its hipster scene by having a lot of clubs like that. Its name in English would be translated like “Judas Tree” and last summer it was closed, but hopefully it will be open for this season. It is a place where you can enjoy gigs and a cool vibe and even get a free cab on the way to the club. Kopilica 24

Another cool place but a little bit outside the city is Day & Night Club Kameleon in Solin, which can be reached by free cab, and a return to Split costs around 70 kuna. Their music ranges from cool DJ to local music parties. Zoranićeva 16, Solin

O’Hara Music Club – located on the seaside, this is the place to go for themed nights and music ranging from domestic trash to current hits and live gigs. Uvala Zenta 3

Tropic Club & Club Bačvice both places are conveniently right next to each other and a good choice for summer night out in Split due to good mixture of locals and tourists with mainstream music and superbly located on the world famous Bačvice beach. Preradovićevo šetalište 2

Caffe Split– place for concerts and DJ nights. Even though it says cafe it is open until 3 am. This is a good place to go if you want to have casual night out. You can also come during day and have nice cakes and coffee. Matice hrvatske 1

Club Quasimodo – if you’re student in Split or visiting during winter this is the place to go if you’re too lazy to go somewhere more than 5 minutes walk from the city centre and are looking for kind of indie and alternative atmosphere. This club is also a place for Bookvica – or regular book fans meetings. It is also place for occasional plays and shows as well as concerts of regional alternative musicians. Due to the lack of open space and ventilation during summer Quasimodo becomes a hostel. Gundulićeva 26a.

Kuka – this place is the cherry on top of every night out in Split. It’s a really dodgy place with great atmosphere. Don’t come here before 3am and without at least few shots of rakija or beers. Sadly, due to bad ventilation, you can enjoy this place only in the spring and autumn, as it is closed in the summer. Zrinsko-frankopanska 17
