Montenegrins know how to throw some of the best parties in the region, but they’re laid-back with it. It’s a combination that makes for some of the friendliest and buzziest nightlife in Europe.
The names of Montenegro’s best clubs and bars are known throughout the region. Added to these regular hotspots are annual music festivals which draw revellers here from across the world. Here at Luštica Bay we love a good night out, and our sales executive Bojana Saranovic is the person we turn to when we want to know where to see and be seen. Though, as she’s always keen to stress, wherever you find yourself, “you’ll be surrounded by happy people” – so you can’t go far wrong. Here are our must-visit spots for this summer in Montenegro – all within easy reach of Luštica Bay itself.
1) Top Hill, Budva: Bojana rates this huge, open-air club as “ the place to be,” and some of Europe’s top DJs clearly agree, putting in appearances through the summer season. Low-key and understated this isn’t but if you want to see Montenegro at its high-octane, glamorous best, you have to make an appearance here.
2) Maximus, Old Town Kotor: One of the most attractive clubs in Montenegro, Maximus is equipped with everything you could possibly need to turn a good night out into a great one. With capacity for over 4,000 people this club regularly hosts big names and concerts.
4) Bar Skaline, Podgorica: Montenegro’s small capital city makes the most of the warm summer nights with a host of open-air clubs. This is one of the best, located at the confluence of two rivers, and has a real beach-bar feel, despite being inland.
5) Kotor Summer Carnival: The entire Old Town of Kotor feels like one big party during August’s carnival season, but especially so on the closing night (6th August). The best way to experience it is to head out after sundown without any specific plan in mind, and follow your nose (or your ears) to the liveliest bars.
