Set in a stunning location near Split on the Adriatic Coast, this small former fishing village is sandwiched between the sapphire sea and the rugged Biokovo mountain range. And on the white shores of Nikolina Beach, nestled in the shade of lush trees, is where locals and visitors flock to Borik: a beach bar and restaurant with a difference.
In the words of the venue’s manager, Ivica Tomaš, Borik aspires to be known simply as, “The best party in town.” So, when a new sound system was needed in 2019, it had to provide an audio experience as special as the bar itself.
During the day, Borik is the ideal spot to take a break from the sun, relax with a perfectly mixed cocktail or an energising coffee, and listen to chilled-out tunes while soaking up those beautiful coastal views. But at night, the air cools down and the atmosphere heats up. Croatian and international DJs, singers, and musicians get the party started with powerful performances, and costumed dancers hype up the crowd with dazzling moves.
In 2019, Borik’s management team knew they needed a new sound system for the 1,500-capacity venue. “We always strive for perfection,” explains Tomaš. “We wanted to have the best, clearest possible sound to help create a professional club atmosphere.” With the help of local installation company, XXX DJS, the team reviewed several brands before choosing Pioneer Pro Audio. Then, it was over to Alen Smajić, XXX DJS owner and installer to assemble the multi-purpose setup.
