Tiha Lounge Bar, Hvar: Pleasure far away from the hustle and bustle
The Croatian island of Hvar is simply just as it is – as the locals like to point out. Although, on the one hand, they are not really enthusiastic about being frequently labelled as the St. Tropez on the Adriatic, they feel a bit proud about it on the other. When during summer time all the mega yachts are mooring at the pier, discharging lots of first-class celebrities into the storm of the omnipresent paparazzi’s camera flashes, the expression might become a bit clearer. However, the Clooneys & Co. make the island lose quite a bit of its identity.
And, in addtition: The Carpe Diem is one of the hippest clubs in Croatia, if not within the entire Adriatic region. The clearly audible sound exposure till the wee hours of the morning is not well received by skippers who meanwhile avoid this area.
But they still exist, the small and quiet restaurants and Konobas, furnished with attention to detail, making a refreshing change from the appetites of the rich and beautiful, letting their visitors forget the glamorous flair of the “sun-island”, at least for a while.
The Tiha Lounge Bar in the Luka Tiha bay perfectly fits the image of the original Hvar. Here, you just bring your ship to anchor and nobody shows up to cash up. Once you set foot on land, it seems like a giant adventure playground, built-up from beachcombing utensils and whatever the sparse landscape might offer otherwise. But, at second sight, the overall arrangement exudes a certain cozyness reflecting the philosophy of the Tiha Lounge Bar: Simply relax and enjoy. So, the very special ambience that blends seamlessly together with the surrounding nature, is so perfect that leave-taking is not easy at all.
But generally, before leaving, a culinary stroll through the menu has been taken, the outstanding wines have been enjoyed in the splendour of the setting sun and the limits of personal food intake have definitely been reached with the sweet tempting desserts. Then, after a nightcap on board ship there is nothing else standing in the way to a peaceful night away from the hustle and bustle.
