The marina at night attracts a good crowd. There are many restaurants to eat ranging from chinese to tapas, I would say that they are slightly more expensive than in the town area. There are some bars as well which can get quite packed both with locals and tourists.
Dress Code: Casual will do
La Bulla: In town-centre - En el centro
People usually go out to these bars at first, before going to the discos located at the Marina. La Bulla is a nice bar with latin music and Spanish music where you can dance or just drink something. They have a comedy show on Wednesday also.
La gente, normalmente, sale por estos bares primero antes de ir a las discotecas del puerto más tarde. La Bulla es un bar que está muy bien, con música latina y española donde se puede bailar o simplemente tomar una copa. Los miércoles tienen también un espectáculo de humor.
Milonga, Ático...: Marina - Puerto
There are several discos here, including Milonga and ?tico. They start to be ok at 2 in the early morning.
Hay varias discotecas aquí, incluyendo Milonga y Ático. Comienzan a estar bien a partir de las 2 de la madrugada.
Dress Code: It depends on the disco. Some of them are formal and the otrhers are casual. You can see it from the street.
Depende de la discoteca. Algunos son formales y otros más informales. Podrás verlo desde la calle.
Tolone's is an eastern inspired bar right at the far end of Calle Real, which serves smoothies, brownies and of course those huge Spanish measures of alcohol :-)
It has a really relaxed vibe, with comfy sofas, candlelight and lots of wierd decorations for you to look at.
July 2005 & November 2005
We visited Lola's on a Friday night and were drawn to it by the live Spanish music that was blaring out across the square from it!
It's a cosy little bar - a bit warm inside but has plenty of seating outside, and table service if you request it.
The staff were really friendly - the guy who owns it is Dutch and a lot of his staff are either Dutch or Spanish and they're all a little crazy!
It was also nice to find the toilets were really clean, had toilet paper and even had cans of hairspray and perfume in there! (this kind of thing really matters to me!!)
We got a Jack Daniels and a vodka both with diet coke for about €10 - A little pricey I suppose but the measures were HUGE, and the bar is on the promenade and we've noticed this seems to make places a little more expensive than in the town.
Friday nights is live Flamenco and Saturday nights is live South American music, and they're open from 10am in the morning. In November they were doing a 5 plate tapas for just €5.
Dress Code: None
