The Mosquito may well be the only real bar on Mljet but it would pass muster in most Adriatic destinations as a quality hang-out day and night. By day, it serves coffee to regulars and passing locals who may have made the trek to Babino Polje to post a letter or have a form stamped. After the sun sinks, the music gets livelier, the mood changes and conversation pings around the mosquito-themed room. This is not to say you’ll roll up and find Mljet’s version of Zagreb’s Tkalčićeva – it’s a miracle there’s any kind of bar on the island at all – but, on its night, Komarac can be whole bunch of fun without having to rub shoulders with the expat yachting fraternity.
Mljet isn't known for its nightlife – but a few after-dark drinks never went amiss. You won't be spoilt for choice when it comes to boozing spots, but the island's main bar is a lively, local delight, while those in Saplunara, Sobra, Polače tend to be full of ramshackle charm.
