Rovinj nightlife, bars & clubs

Rovinj nightlife is not the most exciting in Croatia. There are loads of bars in the old town, but they are mostly chill out places, not dance ‘till dawn kind of places. If you like to sip a cocktail or a glass of wine while watching the world go by, than Rovinj nightlife will fit you perfectly.

If you are looking for a good nightlife fun, then you’ll be better off in Porec or Umag. The Steel Club is the only night club in Rovinj.

  1. In Rovinj, check with San Tomasso, or Dobravac. Both wine producers have small bars in town (San Tomasso at the seaside promenade, and Dobravac at their villa, 10-minute walk fromthe town – but in lovely garden). If you don’t mind to drive, then check Kozlovic, Damjanic, or Trapan.
