Any suggestions? Bars? Restaurants? Sites? ANYTHING! (we're all 25-31 year old if that helps) Thanks ya'll
There is a lot to do in Dubrovnik. What sort of vibe are you looking for and when are you going? The Stradun is really neat. There are tonnes of places to eat, shop, and see while milling along it; plus, if you turn off it you'll end up in nifty little side streets that are picturesque and full of cheap, cheap bars away from the tourist main drag. The cathedral is something to see if you're into that because it's a jewel.
Buza Bar is probably the most famous and coolest one. It's on a cliff, yo! Hemmingway is a cocktail place for a swanky time. Labirint is cool for drinks, too. Caffe Bar Rio is my absolute favourite place, so deffo check it out if you can.
Fresh is the best for cheap, good food combined with the bar/club atmosphere.

I love Dubrovnik, I've been a few times now and do something different each time. I agree Buza bar outside the city walls is great but farely quiet and chilled out. There is a square at the bottom of the old town near the cathedral with lots of bars together, one of them has live jazz. There are also a few more lively local bars off Stradun to the left when entering from Pile gate, one called cafe africa had some cool live music when I was there two guys playing Led Zepellin. Its on the side street with the yummy Pizza slices am sure you won't miss them, delicious and cheap. Food can be pricey in the restaurants especially seafood but it is delicious. Pizza and pasta is very reasonably priced.
If you have time you could do a trip into montenegro or out to the islands, but depends when you are going, probably only worth doing in summer.
If you're looking for accommodation, lots of guesthouses here in the old town itself and further out in lapad.

I loved watching sunset at Buza-everyone claps when it sets and if it's warm you can camp out with your beach towel on the rocks below and have a steady flow of drinks/nibbles.
Walk the rampart walls, beautiful views all round, including the vestiges of bullet holes and bomb shrapnell on some of the buildings. There are also stops on hte walls where you can have a civilized drink.
I also went to Trogir up the coast which is gorgeous: cobbled streets, large stone enclosed town, farmers market and LOTS of bars/restaurants on the waterfront.
I agree with above to try to go to Montenegro.Herceg Novi is an exquisite walled city and the area in the Kotor Bay is stunning-mountains that drop right into the water with midieval town nestled in the nooks along the water. about 10 years ago
