Casemates Square: Out on the Town
If you have read the Restaurant section, you will already be familiar with Casemates Square. Out of the stretch of bars and restaurants around here, I suggest you go to 'The Tunnel'. Ok, I may be slightly biased because I worked there for a year, but it really is the liveliest of all the bars and is open during the summer until about 5am! During the winter months they have a live band and karaoke mid-week. Next to 'The Tunnel' is a bar called 'Latinos'..if you fancy dancing on the tables to a bit of salsa music, this is your best bet! Next to 'Latinos' is 'Lord Nelson' which, although slightly more expensive for food and not as good for partying in the evening, does have a live band every Sunday I believe. This could change of course according to their plans. At the other end of the row of bars, are 'All's Well' and 'The Little Rock'. The latter tends to be the first to close at the weekends followed by 'All's Well'. Both have karaoke mid-week.
Once you've had enough of dancing on the tables or the bar tops, head off to one of Gibraltar's few nightclubs. To be honest they can't even be called that! They're bars with dance floors! There's 'Cool Blues' which I believe has recently changed its age level from over 18s to 14-17 year olds, so this is a place for the younger crowd to hang out. This is at the other end of Main Street nearer the cable car to go up the Rock. The other two places to go are 'Sax 2' and 'The Underground', the latter being the more seedy of the two! They are both just off Casemates Square, so easy to stagger to from one of the bars!
Dress Code: I dont believe there is a dress code for any of the places, but best not to wear trainers just in case! Rules may have been changed since I was there.

The Little Rock: A drink and a dance
This is one fo the bars and restaurants on the Casemates Square strip. Its fairly roomy with a good menu. A little expensive for the kind of place that it is, but it does different food to the rest of the bars along that way. It has always a been a rival to The Tunnel where I used to work, so ive only been in there for other peope's parties. I always go to The Tunnel!
Excuse the photos I have taken but they were all taken on New Year's Eve / morning...it was dark, it was late and apparently I cant really use my camera very well!!!
Dress Code: No dress code
Dancing: Where to go?
If you to go out in Gibraltar, there are a few nice places to go, Firstly, theres the Tunnel, in casemates square (plugging a little business as I used to work there) it is a restaurant/bar/club, during the day and early evening it runs as a restaurant and bar with a large outside seating area, at night mainly on the weekends it turns into a bar/club playing the latest loud tunes where you can dance to. This all finishes at about 3am to 4am depending.
If you are not drunk yet, you can always head off to the local night clubs, two of them (the only ones worth mentioning) are located just off casemates square, Sax II and the Underground(underground open till about 6am), the latter being a dingy little hole, but with an outside area and pool tables, entrance to both I think is about £3.00(I never paid as I worked in casemates square)
Dress Code: No set dress codes are required for most places, although the underground does have a dress code on the door, which states, you must wear black shoes and smart atire, of course no one pays attention to this and people wear anything they want.
The nightlife was great as a...
The nightlife was great as a lot was happening, all the pubs are very British but with a Spanish touch and so there's a great atmosphere in the evening (except when too many navy ships are in the port and then its manic with lots of heavy drinking seafaring types everywhere!)
Some places where you can dance charge entry in the evening but most pubs are free to get in. Its a place to relax and speak English if you have been having Spanish and Portuguese problems on your holidays.
Dress Code: mostly casual as in Britain
