    Sala Quilombo: Sala Quilombo

    by raquelitalarga Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small venue, hidden away in the Realejo quarter, has a resident dj as well as dj's from around Europe. It might have been discovered by the hordes of American exchange students and other'youngsters' now it has been reviewed by Rough Guide to Spain but it was usually 95% Spanish.
    The music varies between house, techno, etc... but not the cheesy pop stuff you'll find in clubs like Granada 10. If you are there and notice fliers for Puto Amo...go! On a recent visit to Granada I wimped out but my boyfriend headed off there about 2a.m and returned about 7a.m after stopping off for coffee and churros;-)
    Techno D.Js Animatek and Mansi are regulars, local celebrities that can be viewed on youtube

    Dress Code: There wasn't a dress code when I was last there...it's a pretty relaxed place.

  • C/ Elvira, Paseo de los Tristes,Carrera del Darro

    by blint Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These two roads which both lead to Plaza Nueva from different directions have some great bars. Simply walk along them until you see one that suits your taste. I'm sure there is something for everyone.

    My favourite is on Carerra del Darro 12 (El Rincon de San Pedro), it is on the right hand side heading from Plaza Nueva. It is painted blue inside and is covered in candles which make it look very Gothic.

    Aliatar Cafe

    by SirRichard Written Jan 3, 2010

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This huge disco is located in the very centre of Granada, in the building of the former Aliatar Cinemas. On the basement there is a clothing magasins (Blanco) and the disco is located on top of the building.
    I was there at the afternoon of the Xmas day and, suprisingly, it was really crowded (for an afternoon) so I guess it would be much more crowded at nights.

    Mae West: Biggest (best?) club in Grenada

    by profuselycool Written May 24, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the month I spent at Granada, I sampled just about all the nightlife available. That said, all the local people my age always responded simply when i asked about their favorite nighttime destination: "Mae West."

    Upon arrival I was not disapointed, rather, blown away. This is a club located on the higher level in the big city mall in the south/west part of town next to the park. It's two levels, with a MASSIVE dance floor in the center, with a series of bars and nooks that encircle the dance floor. This place was absolutely packed and there was a ton of Spanish being spoken (hint hint: very local discotheque)

    Indeed, I met a bunch of local Granadians college-aged and had a blast. Show up around 1:30 or 2am and stay til sunrise. A must

    Dress Code: Casual is fine - Guys wear pants if you want to blend in but shorts are acceptable

    Dolce Vita: American escapades in Spain!

    by profuselycool Updated May 23, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dolce Vita is a curious little bar located off of Plaza Nuevo and winds into the Albaicin. It's basically a straight-up American bar with a lot of flavor. There's always music cranking, and the bartenders are normally college students that are attending the local university. Our group (and most others we'd bump into) would frequent dolce almost every night. It's a lot of fun and a good place to meet up with friends and other students to plan out the rest of your night. Go from 11pm-1am and then relocate! Also, its about a 45 second walk from Granada 10- I think on Tuesdays there is a great drink special in Dolce that converts into free admittance at Granada 10.

    Dress Code: whatever you like

    flamenco

    by FredMaine Written Jun 15, 2008

    For nightlife and many things to do in Granada this Website will give you many wonderful ideas.

    http://www.granadainfo.com/elvirag/index.htm

    Granada has a fantastic flamenco scene. Flamenco comes in two major venues. A Tablao is a tourist show. Don’t let this dissuade you. The talent at tablaos is outstanding. A Peña is a local bar. More authentic, but hit or miss for the talent performing on any particular night.

    I do not know which Penas Garcia Lorca frequented, but my guess is one of the cave clubs in Sacromente, most likely the cave of Maria Garcia. Today it is called La Cueva de Maria la Canastera. Sadly I would suggest avoiding the Cave Clubs. These have entirely lost their authenticity and are today truly tourist traps and the talent is pathetic. Here is a video of La Cueva de Maria la Canastera. It's horribly lame flamenco performed for naive tourists who do not know any better.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h57XEOpx_GU&feature=related

    For a complete list of tablaos and penas in Granada check this Website:

    http://www.deflamenco.com/sitios/sitiosi.jsp?barrio=10

    My best experience of authentic flamenco in Spain, without tourists, was at a private gypsy club in Granada called La Plateria on Placeta de Toqueros, 7. Saturday night is the best show, but Saturday night is 'members only' night. I've been allowed in on a Saturday night so it is worth a try. If you are a small group and you are very polite to the doorman he will probably let you in.

    You will love Granada. Fred

    Eshavira: live music, flamenco and jazz

    by KatrinaEdbrooke Written Apr 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Eshavira is a hang out for local musicians, particularly Gypsy Flamenco artists. Live flamenco on Sunday nights and Jazz on Wednesdays. You'll see posters all over Granada advertising who's on and when. Shows should start at 11 pm but often dont get going till midnight but its worth being there early to get a good seat and people watch. The venue is small and smokey. Look out for the flamenco guitarist Emilio Maya, almost always has wonderful singers and dancers with his show. You can see photos on our website www.andalamusica.com but will post some here soon.

    Dress Code: Casual, can get very hot and steamy.

    calle augustin and others: night-time rambles

    by call_me_rhia Updated Mar 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While there's very much to do at night in Granada, there is also plenty of people just walking about and enjoying the city... oen of our favourite rambles was along and around calle san augustin, to enjoy the artistic cobblestoned surface and pavement.

    Dress Code: Dressed, of course.

    nice cobblestones

    Bar El Flamenco!: Bar-room flamenco, how it aught to be !

    by amapola66 Updated Feb 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Small, unpretentious flamenco bar with a cave at the back where you can listen to some informal flamenco jamming with spontanious outbursts of dance Friday and Saturday nights from a local gypsy family. It's very small, so I recommend you get there early to get a seat in the back room where the music is. We sat on the floor for much of the time as all the seats were gone. There is an outside patio with amazing views of the Alahmbra for those who aren't so partial to a 2 -3 hour buleria/tangos jam ; ) I found the multicultural clientel friendly and the owners amusingly full of personality.

    My favourite bar in Sacromonte so far.

    Entry is free, but drinks a little more than usual for a small bar to cover the music.
    Starts around 11 pm

    Dress Code: as you come

    Calle Navas: Tapas and drinks

    by suvanki Updated Jan 21, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Calle Navas was my favourite spot for spending an evening/night sampling the local beers and cocktails, with the accompanying tapas.
    My hostal was on C/Rossario which is a continuation of Navas, So VERY convenient for staggering back!

    To be continued....

    Dress Code: I was here late October - mix of weather, from warm night to torrential downpour.

    So, come prepared! In the day time, most of the clientele appeared to be office workers, with a smattering of tourists- so a mix of suits /tourist gear.

    Thursday evening was smart casual, and same at the weekend, with some very smart dressers- mainly the 50+ age group.

    Various bars/clubs around Granada: Flamenco music /dance

    by suvanki Updated Jan 21, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although I unfortunately didn't get to experience a live flamenco show (either musicians/ singers or dance) I was hoping to, during my short visit. (Next time I will!)

    Although Sacromente is renowned for it's nightly shows, there appears to be a selection of venues in central Granada to see/hear Flamenco artistes.

    These posters/flyers were posted all over Granada, so, if you want to experience an evening of flamenco music, keep your eyes peeled for these posters!

    Plaza de San Nicolas: after sunset

    by amapola66 Updated Nov 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After watching the sun set over the Alahmbra, you can visit one of the litle bars or restaurants at the nearby Plaza St Nicolas. Great views in abundance and a variety of places around the square to eat and/or drink.

    We found most of these rather overpriced and not as friendly as other areas in the Albaicin, but you are on holiday, so I guess it's a good spot for the odd night, but I would recommend just a drink and eat elsewhere. Strangely, we didn't receive our free tapas here either !

    The bars in this part of town close quite early for Spain (around midnight), the buses run up there if you don't fancy the walk.

    Tablao de Falmenco - Albaycin: Granada Flamenco

    by amapola66 Updated Nov 4, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When in Granada most want to see some flamenco. I rented a house on the edge of the Albaycin with the idea to catch as much flamenco as my family could endure ; ) The nice thing about flamenco shows is that you can always take the small people who are made welcome. There is these days a large tourist industry thriving around the Granada flamenco scene. You can catch some great casual bar room flamenco if you are in the right place at the right time or you can see a show. We had a taste of both. A little local bar just as you enter Sacromonte was a fantastic place - Free entry, children welcome & outside seating for those who don't want to cram themselves into a small cave room to participate. We ended up sitting on the floor for most of the night but it was worth it for the spontanious bulerias that we saw from a local gypsy family.

    We also wanted to to see some quality dancing in a show. We were advised to go to Tablao Flamenco Albaycin which was walkable from our house - it seemed like an easy option at the time. Ent. 27 euros - Well we were on holiday, the venue looked good & the views from there are spectacular. The 1st lady (pictured in a swirl here) was an amazing dancer & she graced us with a fantastic buleria that went on & on so thought we'd hit the jackpot - However the following 2 dancers were prob. advanced student level & I have experienced this in uk dance classes. Then a belly dancer who didn't really do it for me followed by a young male dancer who was nothing special at all. There was an air of 'let's get this over with' from the performers. Only one drink included in the ticket price & then it was over. The first lady 'was' the show really - we felt short changed. On leaving we heard more flamenco sounds & on looking up we saw that they were running the same show similtaniously upstairs with the SAME dancers! Noo wonder the dancers looked in a hurry! Overpriced & definitely taking advantage of tourists hoping to see a quality show - I cannot recommend it for the price!

    Dress Code: As you come.

    tt is oNe of a bar it is my favourite place to dance in the whole wide world (apart from my living room) because it plays the music I like brit pop, rock, indie, 60, 70's,80's (not the cheesy stuff),90's.

    INSTEAD OF DELETING THIS TIP I WILL INSTEAD TURN IT INTO A KIND OF WARNING FOR ALL THOSE OF YOU WHO KNEW THIS BAR FROM YEARS AGO. IT HAS CHANGED OWNERSHIP :( NOW IT PLAYS THE 40 PRINCIPALES LIKE ANYOTHER COMMERCIAL BAR.
