Nightlife in Dubrovnik begins every night after sundown as people start to walk up and down the main street - Placa street (Stradun), in a kind of a customary walk before the good times get rolling. After the few roundabouts you go get a drink or two for warm up in one of the many bars or pubs, depending upon your preference.

You will notice that most of the bars in Dubrovnik are small and cozy. However what they miss in size, they compensate in numbers.
