  • Cambodio: Cave Club!

    by blint Updated Nov 12, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in Sacromonte it is a club in a cave! It has two levels, though the upstairs isn't a cave.

    Downstairs they play Spanish pop which is BAD, but for the atmosphere it's worth sticking it out just for the experience of being iin a cave disco for one night. Upstairs they play Hip Hop where you will find A LOT of Americans.

    It costs 6 euros to enter but it includes a drink.

    The photo you can see is not Cambodio, but instead a church located on the same road as Cambodio (Camino de Sacrmonte).

    Dress Code: I don't think there is any dress code. My boyfriend was wearing Trainers and Jeans and they let him in!

    Cambodio: Dancing the night away

    Cambodio is a HUGE discotec in the Sacromonte in Granada, where they play good Spanish pop music - and on a lucky night you might here an english popsong as well ;-)

    If you normally like discos - then dont miss one of the biggest ones in Granada - "Cambodio"

    Dress Code: I have not yet heard of any dresscode - but it is a fancy-inplace so I wouldnt recommend you to wear too relaxed clothes - eventhough I think you could get in with wearing that!

    CamboRio: Club with a...er 2 differences!

    El Camborio NOT Cambodio as incorrectly noted by nearly all other reviews (you will have problems getting a cab to Cambodia from the centre of granada i can tell you!!) is a bit out of town - far end of Albayzin - and is quite unique in that on the ground floor it is a cave club playing 'pachanga' - sort of urban Andaluz sounds, while upstairs is more mainstream rap/dance stuff - nothing special until it starts to get light and you realise you have a fantastic view of the Alhambra from inside the upstairs bar. Cool off at 6am on the terrace with a last drink before taking a stroll upto the mirador de san nicholas where you will have the place to yourself - probably the only time possible!

    And definatly don't bother turning up before 4am - will be dead/full of tourists!

    Dress Code: Well i wouldn't turn up naked!! pretty chilled out door policy.

    Cambodio: Party in a cave!

    by profuselycool Updated May 22, 2009

    El Cambodio is a unique and entirely different nightclub. A buddy and I went up there, arrived around 2:30am. It was disappointingly slow. There's an 8E cover charge, but it comes with a free drink so not too bad. However, the whole location and setup makes the trip pretty much worth it. There are about 4 levels, all chiseled into the dens of the large cliffs/claves in the area. The bottom area has a bar and sloping ceilings, dance floor, etc. Go up to the higher levels to find multiple terraces for dining/drinking. I don't know my advice on this disco- apparently it can get crazy and a lot of fun, and its location in El Sacromante (the cave district to the west of the Alhambra) is breathtakingly gorgeous. I'd try it on a Friday or Saturday and hope that it's bumping, because I was certainly a little let down by its lack of intensity.

    Dress Code: Casual dress, it can get nippy up there however, even in the summer.

    Cambodio: Whatever you do, do not show up before 2am...

    $6 hip-hop/flamenco club, includes drink:

    The club itself is unique in appearance and style-for one thing, its carved into a cave. The first floor, which still has that cave feel to it as opposed to the 2nd floor, is for Flamenco dancing. Look around you--you'll probadly be the only griego down there. The atmosphere is friendly and fun but it gets extremely hot in there. Head upstairs to the hip-hop room-the DJs there never let the beat drop and mixes up-date American tunes. Show up at 2am, and you'll be the first there. The party does not start well into 3-4am, and does not end until daylight.
    The patio outside can be a romantic spot to kick it or a place to get some fresh air.
    Check out the bathrooms at this place! I was accustomed to taking my own paper and hovering in Spain, but this bathroom actually comes with paper, and-GASP, soap.

    Dress Code: Just look good.
