Poco Loco Cocktail and Tapas Bar, The New Favourite Hangout In Dubrovnik
Poco Loco Cocktail and Tapas Bar are, as of now, no longer a new name in Dubrovnik's nightlife scene. This bar-turned-restaurant has taken over the central area of Buniceva Poljana Square for a long time. This square in the core of the city's historical center is a well-known nightspot. It is situated behind the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary and is very popular with the locals and foreigners.
Dubrovnik is anything but a young destination. This city has always been a popular travel destination and an important port for international travelers as well. In light of this, the offer of local cafés, restaurants, and bars is very generous. Notwithstanding, the sheer number of businesses specializing in hospitality doesn't necessarily mean there is a good variety on offer. With regards to the wine and dining scene of the city, its greater part is split between pretty much generic bars and serious restaurants that have more or less the same drinks on their menu. Fortunately, the undeniable trends are changing, and we see new ideas gradually becoming the overwhelming focus. Poco Loco Cocktail and Tapas Bar is an extraordinary example.
