Carpe Diem is one of the most popular bars in Hvar, but I really don't know why's that so. Waiters are rude and slow and value for money is low.

We spent the day on Carpe Diem a couple of days before it officially opened for the season. We were allowed to sit in the cabanas all day for free , ordering our food, wine & coffees. We had lunch in the restaurant & it was surprisingly one of the better meals of our whole trip. The service all day... More

Went to end of season closing party and it was terrible. Drinks are expensive and everybody there is quite pretentious and posh. Not the kind of vibe we were after at all.

Me and my other half had read a few good reviews about the beach club, so we thought why not try it? MISTAKE! From the off we experienced terrible hospitality, drinks that tasted watered down and the music was mediocre - then to bloody awful - and back to mediocre - all night. Granted the setting is beautiful, but even... More

Place is over hyped by the internet reviews. I found it nothing great but good people to party with. Theres not much to do on Hvar and thus this gains more importance.

This is the place to be for late night (well, 11pm-1am) cocktails. Outdoor/indoor bars and seating. Good music. The younger crowd then gets on the water taxis and heads to Carpe Diem Beach Party across the harbor.

I was on Hvar recently and felt very unsafe. I saw bouncers bash tourists even women. I also had locals threaten to kill me if I didn't pay them to use the public toilet. I have heard that the Hvar Town is controlled by the Local mafia who also control the local police. Hvar is dangerous you shouldn't go there.

This place is by far the most beautiful place to party, fancy a cocktail or chill with an amazing view.

Atmosphere is slow as most tables are reserved despite there not being anyone on them. Drinks are expensive compared to the rest of the bars on the harbour. As mentioned in many reviews below we were treated to a display of the rude, threatening bouncers. Rather than argue back, we just left. After reading reviews here, im glad we did... More
