Great prices, fun atmosphere, amazing drinks. You just have to love the atmosphere there, Sanctuary for sure has the friendliest staff ever. They are most famous for cocktails, but also they have beer, whiskeys, gins etc. at a very good price.

Cheap drinks compared to many other places in Split. Inside is smoky, but the patio outside is very nice. Love that you can bring outside food and have it at their tables with a beer.
