Located somewhat improbably on the second floor of an office block, the minimally decorated, moodily lit Quasimodo is Split’s leading venue for indie gigs and DJ nights – if leading bands from Croatia or ex-Yugoslavia are on tour, then it’s probably Quasimodo that they’ll play. With spoken-word evenings and pub quizzes also featuring on the programme, it’s an important cultural hub as well as an excellent alt-rock drinking den.

A row of late-opening bars along the Bačvice beachside also stay busy way past midnight over the summer. Read on for our pick of the best clubs and nightspots the city has to offer.
