Bol nightlife has its long tradition. There is something for everyone no matter of age or preferences. Lots of cafe and cocktail bars for younger and older, almost daily shows and Bol cultural Summer manifestations. Traditionally there are “welcome Summer” and “Goodbye summer” parties on first and last day of summer. These two are rich with local specialties such as fish, vine and strong drinks. Usually with live music and fireworks. Bol nightlife is truly rich in its offerings.
Bol nightlife recommendations
Recommended for a start of night is a nice dinner in one of plethora of good restaurants offering Dalmatian and international cuisine. After that, an after dinner cocktail in Cocktail Bar Bolero, located in pine forest on the promenade leading to Zlatni rat beach is a great choice.
Later into the night, most of happenings are in Bol center. Our recommendation is Cocktail bar Varadero for party and some small cafe’s in Bol harbor offering great night view of Bol by the sea.
For late in the night (read early morning hours) when life in town is finished, there is a choice to go to Night Club in Hotel Elaphusa that is open till morning. Entrance is from promenade leading to Zlatni rat beach.
We are sure there is something for all tastes in Bol nightlife. Parties, concerts of classical and pop music, art and photo exhibitions, or just a nice walk by the sea.
Throughout summer months, there is a fisherman night organized each week on Fridays. Local klapa singers (traditional a cappella singing, which is under UNESCO protection as non material heritage of Croatia) , small band with live music is there to entertain. Also many stands with local made souvenirs and old school crafts are along the Bol harbor. Last but not least, many restaurants and local people have stands where they cook for you local dishes of fresh fish and crabs.
