I have no idea about the night life here, but I've twice chosen this place as a perfect spot to wait for the ferry. Super-comfortable sofa/chairs, fresh pastries, great coffee. What's not to like?

Overpriced drinks and very little atmosphere at the bar in Hvar Town. I would avoid as there are places with a much better vibe. The island party was so much fun though, expensive but worth it for the experience!

Fun outdoor table area for bottle service and live dj. Cute arch ways. Nothing too out of the ordinary but we had a blast and a great waiter. Cool fire tricks as well. Great water view. Closes abruptly at 2 am for the beach.

I attended both the bar on the mainland and the club on it's own island. Had a great time at both, even if the atmosphere was a bit pretentious and "exclusive". However, when queuing for the ferry to another island we witnessed a security man punch a woman in the face. She had been attending the yacht week party there... More

Disappointing experience in the main bar as one of the male bar-floor staff in the outdoor area pulled a cushion out from under my friend and berated her for putting the cushion on a wet seat (which she hasn't realised as it was already there when we came in). The bar mans manner was appalling and disrespectful and I wonder... More

Carpe Diem is great for pre-drinking before you head out to the club. The best time to go is around 11/11.30 where the crowd is great and the music is buzzing. It is quite an expensive bar, however it is one of the more sophisticated bars with beautiful loungers and bar area. We sat outside in an area where they... More

A Very Nice Bar with a Ideal Setting and A Decent Drinks Menu. Bar Staff Pleasant. However my Only Dissapointment was the Seating Area Outside. Table Service Only even for the Bar Stool Seats. It was Practically Standing Room Only. Some of The Clientele that were Sat Down were Nursing 1 Bottle of Beer each for 1 Hour. If I... More

A little boat takes you from the pretentious main island bar to the real party on Carpe Diem island. Open air club in a forest/beach type setting with a swimming pool and good DJ. Boat doing runs back to Hvar island every half hour or so for those who aren't mighty enough for the full all nighter. Minus one star... More
