Croatian Nightclub Ranked 25th In The World

The world’s leading dance music magazine DJ MAG has voted Croatian nightclub Papaya at number 25 on the list of the best clubs for 2013.

DJ MAG ran a poll for its readers from all over the world and the Croatian club, which is situated in Novalja on the northern Adriatic island of Pag, came in at 25th in the world.

“This is huge recognition for Croatia tourism and all of our tourist offerings, and an excellent announcement and invitation just ahead us opening for the 12th season. Novalja is recognised around the world as a destination which offers a high quality music programme, and a number of other events which attract tourists from all over the world,” said Papaya’s PR man Toni Dabinovic.

Those prone to a bit of brave rave exploration outside their clubbing comfort zone will have already sampled a slice of Eastern Europe’s club culture.

Slowly becoming a lucrative rental space for British promoters and a regular walking ground for tourists and Croatian holidaymakers alike, Pag’s Papaya has climbed another few spots in this poll again this year.

The music policy’s pretty sturdy too, boasting anything from house to techno to progressive, even r&b and dubstep. Armin van Buuren, Axwell, Loco Dice, Ricardo Villalobos, Marco Carola and Hardwell are some of the biggest hitters who’ve all made waves on Papaya’s shit-hot Martin Audio soundsystem; it’s also the choice spot for our very own DJ Mag festival, tag teamed with MTV. Adrenaline junkie? You’re in good company,” is how DJ MAG summed up Papaya.
