We try and find the Irish bar in every town we visit and Marbella was no exception.
We found this one when wandering back from the beach and sat down to have a pint of the black stuff, which was rather good apparently (I can't stand it personally!).
It's dimly lit and intimate, even in the middle of the day when the sun is blazing.
Prices are rather high at €10 for a pint of Guiness and a JD and coke - this is about what we'd expect to pay for a city centre bar, but not for one that was tucked away down a backstreet, but I guess if we were drinking the local brew as opposed to imported beer/spirits then it may have been more reasonably priced.

This was a fun nightclub. There was no cover when we got there at midnight. It didn't really get bumpin till about 3:00am. The drinks were expensive. They played a variety of music from hip-hop to pop to Reggae to Spanish to Techno, though some of the music was kind of outdated. There was a better mix of people here than in the surrounding bars of Puerto Banus, including locals from Marbella and San Pedro. This was the only nightclub we went to, so I don't have anything to compare it to in Spain.
Dress Code: No sneakers
Puerto Banus is a flashy marina and definitely a nightlife center. There were some cool bars that played good music. In general, the drinks are expensive and the scene smells of money. Everyone was dressed fancy and the women wore fancy jewelry and alot of makeup. It was fun, but I felt like I was back home in the US or I could have been in London, and I didn't feel that it was a genuine Spanish experience. Most of the people were from the UK and they all seemed to know each other well, although everyone was friendly. It was fun enough, but next time, I think I'd skip it and go find tapas bars instead.
Dress Code: No Sneakers
Is a pub with a nice terrace and interesting music also they do exhibitions of paintings.
At the top there is an Argentinian restaurant. We went last month and if you get recomended the Argentinian steak, thinki it twice, is massive and not as good as it should be as personal opinion.
I always liked the pub ... and took some vt members as: Krista and Zuzu (a dangerous night lol) and Stace, Olga and Miguel (well Olga and me we used to go there often before lol)
This is on the promenade at Puente Romano Hotel.
In the midle of the beach outside, beautiful setting.
I would suggest to go with your special person as when they close is beautiful to be on the beach but friends are welcome to have some fun dancing good music
It's a very chilly place and often not crowded which is nice.
In the entrnce corner of Puerto Banus you can find these two bars with terraces.
The people that go here is normally Northern European, lots of Brits, Swedes, Danes...
Another place to go if you like to be seen by people , again not my style, but well on vacation always is diferent!
drinks expensive (in comparation with pubs in marbella)
Dress Code: See more in My Puerto Banus page
The Costa del Sol boasts a wide array of nightlife, with Marbella and nearby Puerto Banús playing host to the most exclusive venues.
Dress Code: But if you prefer to Stay in Marbella, and not toake taxis, here are some tips.....
La Abadia, a little more expensive than the rest, but good music (4 or 5 euros the drinks)
Also Calle Peral has lots of places: (Opposite Cafeteria Marbella going up the road, and around the corner to your right): Some places are: la lavadora, Alaska, el huerto, la teteria and el frutero.
Then in Plaza de los Olivos, there are a few pubs open until very late, and near in Jacinto Benavente , la Bastilla and la Botellita ...
Also there are two difernt Irish pubs on fashion: on is Maverick Maverick in Calle Tetuan Behind Cartier,stay on the little street, you can't miss it And Morrisons behaind ZARA shop in Ricardo Sriano
Hope you like it
Bars are to close two hours earlier. (written on 02/12/2002)
The Puerto Banus council has synchronized the closing time of bars in Puerto Banus with the rest of Spain.
The old closing times were 5 on week days and 6 on weekends but after the new law was enforced the time has moved back to 3 on week days and 4 on weekends.
Bar owners have protested against the new times but the council’s decision was unaffected. Disco closing time will remain unaffected, which it is 6 on week days and 7 on weekends.
This is likely to damage all businesses in the port.
A good night, have some nice food in a restuarnat for dinner, then go to have some beers at thye Irish pubs, the you can visit CAfe Banus.
Other suggestions could be Comedia Pub, or Samba ...
Dress Code: Later on, you can always go to Dreamers disco (www.dreamers-disco.com) or Olivia Valeire disco .. until the morning
Puerto Banus has many Restaurants, Bars and Nightclubs. They tend to be fairly expensive, due to the exclusiveness of the area.
But with many yachts and villas in the area, belonging to the rich and famous, who knows who you could be rubbing shoulders with.
Dress Code: Smart for most establishments.
I´m not sure how to really describe this bar, its close to some of the more unusual bars seen in Ibiza. A mixture of people attend it and I supposed its best described as Hippy chic. A great place for people watching though.
Dress Code: Anything goes, literally anything.
well, dificult to explain the atmosphere, but if you like Ibiza music and style, you may feel here at home ....
Dress Code: House music and nice atmosphere
What i like is the music, expensive drinks (at least for me, but reasonable for Puerto Banus) and i nice place to see people .... and be watched if you like that
Not my style, but a nice place to go
