Enjoy a cocktail in the clouds at this summer rooftop bar in Split
A new rooftop bar has opened in Split in time for late summer, with atmospheric views of the city and the grizzled mountains that surround it. It's a dazzling place to watch the sunset. Diocletian's Palace is visible from the rooftop, as is much of Split's old town, plus the greenery of Marjan hill to the west of the city centre. Sip your sundowner here, overlooking the ancient walled town. At night, you can even unwind in a piping hot Jacuzzi. This is Split's first dedicated rooftop bar in the city. Sadly, it's only a temporary seasonal installation, located atop the Cornaro Hotel on Sinjska ulica 6, just north of Diocletian's Palace.To mark the opening of the bar, Corona Beer will inhabit the space from Friday 3 August to Saturday 11 August, hosting Corona Sunset Parties from 5pm until 11pm. Following these opening parties, the rooftop will stay open from 5pm-midnight until the end of the season
Raise a glass
Zagreb’s residents like a tipple – and they’re spoilt for choice both in places to drink and in how to fill their glasses. Walk around town at any time of the year, and any time of day, and you’ll see bars and cafés brimming with locals drinking and chatting, perhaps along Tkalčićeva, down Savska in the business quarter; and especially in a hub around lounge-bar central, Preradovićev trg, by the flower market (Cvjetni trg). Whether you’re a vinophile, a beer-lover or a spirits-drinker, you’ll find your heaven here. RECOMMENDED: the best bars in Zagreb.
Craft beer bars in Zagreb
The popularity of craft beer — progressive beers produced by small-scale breweries — has well and truly exploded in Zagreb. Fans of bold, flavorsome beers are rejoicing. After years of market dominance from behemoth brewers Ožujsko and Karlovačko, the craft beer revolution has taken hold, and Zagreb's bars and restaurants are fully waking up to the trend. Craft aficionados have even more reasons to be be beerful with this year's arrival of The Garden Brewery, and dedicated tap-rooms Hop In and Craft Room, which have bubbled in popularity since their recent inception. Happy drinking! RECOMMENDED: more great bars in Zagreb.

Split bar guide
Local Splićani spend much of their lives in bars. By day, they frequent terrace cafés on the Riva seafront promenade and after dark, the alleyways of the Diocletian’s Palace behind it. Many a Split bar will have its entrance on a parallel street, another will have a doorway in a street with no name at all. On any given night, you’ll find at least one you love, but know you’ll never find again. All the more reason to keep hold of our list of the city's best drinking spots...
