Wine bars

Another long-standing and well loved bar is the Hard Jazz Café Trubadur (no email, telephone only +385 20 323476), run by the Van Bloemen family, who also founded London's Troubadour Café in Earl’s Court back in the 1950s. The kitsch interior sports wooden furniture, a scrubbed antique bar (hewn from an old ship) and walls covered with autographed photos of well-known former and current drinkers; the small stage at the front of the bar plays host to live jazz all summer long. Watch out for visiting musicians during the Summer Festival and impromptu jam sessions late at night. Finally, a newcomer (and Dubrovnik’s first and only wine bar) to the local scene, D’Vino is a welcoming little bar in a narrow but romantic marbled street just off Placa. With warm fairy lights and several tables outside, plus a cosy and traditional stone interior, D’Vino serves an almost exhaustive collection of Croatian and Dalmatian wines, both by the glass and by the bottle. There are over 60 wines by the glass to choose from and the generous opening hours of Monday to Sunday, 10am to 2am may see this become a hotspot quickly. Its ambience perfectly suits a laid back evening promenading in the Old Town. Not to be missed.
