Just like many European cities on the Med, Dubrovnik has a decidedly relaxed attitude to nightlife, which involves party lovers drinking, laughing and nibbling on small treats well into the warm night until the temperature finally drops low enough to brave the clubs! Expect to readjust your body clock in Dubrovnik as you dance the night away and leave the clubs at 4, 5 and 6 in the morning and party with young, fun-loving students from the nearby university. It's a small city where pubs, clubs, bars and of course pretty moonlit beach walks are all within moments of one another, so nights out need not be confusing or an endless stream of expensive taxi rides. One of the more stylish beachside resorts in Europe, Dubrovnik hen nights certainly will not disappoint! Send us an enquiry and get your Dubrovnik hen night moving.
You'll never be short of places to grab a quick drink or while away an evening with a bottle of fine wine on a Dubrovnik hen night. Placa Street is the place to be when the sun goes down and everybody's ready for a couple of cheeky drinks before the clubs open. Although bars and pubs tend to be small inside, there's plenty of them and all very close together, so you can try out the house speciality at each one and if you get tired of the bustle and rush, simply move along! You'll find a little bar, pub or eatery around every corner and in every nook and cranny and all of them stay open until 1am officially but don't be surprised if you find yourself drinking and dancing in bars until the small hours!
Croatians aren't strangers to a good drink and they certainly love to party. You and the girls will be delighted by how affordable everything is and how good a cold beer tastes on a hot Dubrovnik hen night in the city! Popular drinks in Croatia include Rakia, a very strong spirit made from fermented fruit which is only for the very bravest tourists and a wide variety of wines. Beer or pivo, as the Croatians would say, is cheap and widespread, and try not to be too alarmed when locals mix their wine with water or even cola!
Essential to any good Dubrovnik hen night is, of course, a good meal. There are plenty of cuisines to try out and the Croatians have really embraced Italian, meaning that pizza is never in short supply! If you're interested in traditional dishes however, look out for restaurants serving classic meals typical of the region. Some of our favourites include octopus salad, a curious looking black risotto which is made from squid's ink and a whole lot of seafood fresh from the Med delicious! Paticada is a rich beef stew which is well worth a try and traditionally served with potato gnocchi or try Paski Sir, a traditional cheese of the region.
The city of Dubrovnik is pretty compact, so presuming that you and the girls are able to stay centrally (and if you book your accommodation with GoHen you will be), you should have no need for public transport and will be able to hop easily between restaurants, clubs and bars. The Old Town is generally the place to be, as is the area right by the water's edge when it comes to partying. Should you need transport there, you can take a 1, 1A or 1B bus right into the heart of the action.

Heading to a new city is always intimidating when it comes to nightlife and knowing what to look for in a foreign club can be difficult.

Skip the queues and get ready to dance with your incredible passes which means that all entrance fees are done, dusted and paid for. What's not to love!?
We know just how tight money can be for everyone on a hen weekend, so a group meal which is pre-paid can really help to manage those finances.
