This was more a "sunset activity". After visiting the old town we went to see the sunset at the Bastioni Marco Polo, by the seaside walls. There we found this Kings Bar, with these wonderful "chaisses longes" where we sat for a drink and enjoyed the sunset. They served meals and dinners too, and night drinks too. It is a nice place even at night as you are right by the sea.
Diva is a cafe with seats indoors and outdoors, waitress service indoors and outdoors, very central on Via Roma at #40 in the Centro Storico, looking onto a cobbled square Pizza Municipio
Just always very relxaing any time I was in it alone or together
Dress Code: None
Il Vecchio Dado 2007 - date is a re-branding of the Canguro Grigio; archived tip follows:
Alghero is not especially well suited for partying all night and tripping the light fantastic, but is well served by the Italian and Mediterranean cafe culture.
This "Grey Kangaroo" is a live music venue with waiter service on the pavement cafe. The evening's act is also performing outdoors.
So , accordingly to whether or not they sound any good, you can choose to take a seat or not! Some good and some not so good acts different nights!
Dress Code: None, other than that like any where else in Italy you dress better than elsewhere on holiday
Outside of the main tourist season many places close but this still rocks.
Full of locals (mix of the old goers and the alternative youth)
They can't mix drinks to save their life (don't expect fancy cocktails) but stick to the beer and you'll have a blast!
Lock in with smoking
Guitar & singing
Dress Code: Leave high heels or anything fancy at home
We went on a friday night when there was live music. The place was busy and there was a good young band playing a mix of mainly English chart music, but some Italian songs. There was a good atmosphere of locals and holiday people.
Miques did Miralle is in the Centro Storico, a great place to stop and watch the stunning sunsets over the promontory beyond the castellated bastions.
Table service outdoors as you sit, great for a predinner drink and within a stone's throw of literally a dozen restaurants.
Dress Code: None
Some friends and I ran into some Roman guys (very fit I might add) and they took us to a club just outside Alghero (5-10 min drive) which was quite cool.
Beautiful locals and some cracking house tunes. There are some bigger clubs around apparently but this one seemed quite popular and had a nice indoor/outdoor grotto feel about it.
Dress Code: club wear and sexy casual.
I've heard rumors of a big club a few miles out of town, but it's strange. The pace of life doesn't really lend itself to the cut and thrust of club life.
At the risk of sounding in my 80's, the perfect end to a day in Alghero is a wonderful meal in one of the many restaurants followed by a few Sambuce and espressos in conjunction with people watching into the wee small hours. Piazza Sullis is the ideal place. Tourists and locals alike enjoy the night air and staring is actively encouraged!
Dress Code: Dress to impress
The food is amazing and really cheap. There are some very nice bars. But nobody seems to go to these bars, even at the weekend. People seem to prefer to walk around the town and hang out, rather than sit and drink. It is very nice for lazy dinners and romantic strolls...
Dress Code: None
