    Most of the action centres around Hvar Town, the island's largest community. Throughout the year, the harbour is filled with the lavish yachts of the rich and famous. There's also a regular schedule of boat parties and other late-night fun taking place on the islands just off the coast. Here are some of the best nightlife venues you have to visit on the island of Hvar.

    Carpe Diem Beach Club

    Experience coastal glamour

    • Nightlife

    Set off the coast of Hvar Town on Marinkovac Island, Carpe Diem Beach Club attracts a wealth of local and international musicians throughout the year. Spread across 2,500 square metres, the lush location is surrounded by towering pine trees. Here, you'll find an array of restaurants, terraces, lounge bars and cool event spaces.

    When the sun is out, Carpe Diem has a laid-back feel with lounge music providing the soundtrack. The venue really comes to life once the sun goes down, with renowned DJs getting the crowd dancing until late. If you prefer a more low-key night, the club offers a sprawling wellness area with 2 beaches and a deck. You can take a free taxi boat from Hvar Town harbour to Carpe Diem. The journey takes around 10 minutes per one-way trip.

    Central Park Club

    An evening of live jazz and soul

    • Nightlife

    Central Park Club is a slight divergence from the booming beats of many Hvar nightlife venues. Here, live music is the main focus, with each evening welcoming great talent across jazz, soul, blues and big band. The colourful space inside recalls the 1950s and 60s, with comfy couches, high ceilings and a roaring fireplace that gives the place an easy-going vibe.

    During the day, Central Park Club is a hotspot for breakfast and lunch with soundtracks of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Aretha Franklin playing in the background. However, summer nights are when the venue is truly at its best, as you can enjoy wine or a cocktail and tap your feet to live acts.

    Location: Sveti Marak 2, Bankete bb, 21450, Hvar, Croatia

    Open: Daily from 7am to 2am
