First stop in Croatia and we head to Zadar. One of the first things we notice here is how SOUND the people are…its nice to be somewhere people act the same as we do at home. Last night we checked out a place called THE GARDEN. Everyone we met was telling us this was the place to be, and I can see why. We arrived and ordered a pitcher of Long Island Iced Tea which was strong enough to knock the head off a Kerry man. House choons playing in the background but not the place to be if you want a dance and a laugh. Excellent mixing though…the dj knew his crowd. We would have stayed there longer with the promise of good drink and music had the place not finished at 1am so on the dj’s advice we ventured over to the MARASCHINO CLUB…open to 5am. Situated on the extremely chic docs/waterfront across from the old town lies Maraschino bar/club and this is the place to be if you want to dance into the early hours. An excellent club with amazing views over the waterfront boasting a nice soundsystem, good resident djs and warm and friendly bar staff…not to mention a sound out resident house cat! When in Zadar do The Garden and Maraschino.
