Huskies Sports Bar: Ronda at Night
This bar opened the week I arrived in Ronda and I was one of the first customers. The owners - brothers Gus and Carlos - gave us a warm welcome. They are from Connecticut originally but moved between the U.S and Spain all their life, so they spoke fluent English and Spanish. This helped a lot as the clientele of the bar was a good mix of Spanish locals and foreign students from the likes of Sweden, Ireland and the U.S. Good for meeting people, have a few drinks then hit the nightclubs if your still awake :)
Dress Code: Anything goes.

After a walk through the old town and back into the new town by one of the bridges we stopped for a beer at Central Corner, a nice bar in the back streets of the Mercadillo area. There are tables outside the bar, which were lovely to sit out on and catch the last of the evening sun. A Cruzcampo beer and a plate of peanuts was just what we needed after all the walking.
Bodega El Socerro
We started our evening off at Bodega El Socerro, a nice bar near Plaza del Socerro, one of the Mercadillo's main squares, where many of the cities bars and restaurants are found. Unlike in Granada we didn't get free tapas, but we did get two lovely glasses of Rioja. The bar was very popular with locals and I think we were the only non-Spanish speakers there. By the time we left the place was full.
Huskies Bar: You want to get crazy?
This is the best bar in town for forrigners, I has a blast there are two owners from the U.S. but half Spaniards. Is the most crowdest bar in that little town. People from Poland, Sweden, Puerto Rico, Germany, U.S., Irish like crazy and the hooiking up is unbelievable. Great place the best in te South of Spain.
Dress Code: Super Casual, jeans, t-shrits, and in the summer people chill with sandals. Is a great place
El choque ideal: The best place in town
The most wonderful place in town. Say hi to derk (the owner) if you are there.
The place is/has a:
-Balcony on the cliffs
Just a generally fantastic place, could not recommend it more!
Dress Code: Not important
All of the nightlife here: Ronda's Nightlife in a nutshell
Ronda's nightlife is certainly active though restricted mainly to the bars. There are two clubs of any note in town, 'que me dices' and 'kiss' both playing cheezy mix of spanish and english pop music.
For a more intresting music scene check out for occasional 'fiestas' at 'el choque ideal' or 'limbo' for DJs spinning a more eclectic mix of music.
Live Jazz can be heard on friday nights 'siete copas' underneath the back of the parador hotel and flameco sining as well on fridays at 'naynays', though the quality varies. Unfortunately, the real flamenco clubs are inaccesable to tourists.
However, the best way to experience the andalucian nightlife is to head to any of the towns bars. 'Faustinos' for excellent tapas (though of course you can get some tapas in almost any bar) and for passionate football supporters try 'Realke'.
Dress Code: In general dress is not important for the low key provincial nightlife of Ronda
