    Bataplan: Nightclubs

    by carlitoab Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With a balcony overlooking the beach "La Concha," this nightspot is usually open till 5am, the latest of any of Donostia's nightclubs. Drinks are expensive so I suggest you drink before you go!

    Dress Code: Casual, sometimes nights are themed.

    Akerbeltz: You do not need chairs

    by zizu Updated Sep 5, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Akerbeltz, on your left.

    This is one of my favourite bars. It's located close to the port. You can go there in the evening or in the night. The bar is very small, but it has good beers. I think its charm is you can stay outdoor, in the stairs to Urgull Mountain, speaking with friends or foreginers, and drinking, smoking and listening music.
    Also, you are very near to the old town of the city.
    You can see the Santa Maria church in the pic.

    NIGHTIME DANCING

    LA CONCHA BEACH AT NIGHT

    THE NIGHTLIFE CAN BE SPECIALLY FOUND IN THE OLD PART OF THE CITY OR IN THE STREETS BEHIND THE 'BUEN PASTOR' CATHEDRAL (EL BUENPAS FOR US) WHERE PUBS AND BARS OFFER A WIDE RANGE OF MUSIC STYLES. BESIDES THAT THE CITY HAS SOME DISCOS YOU CAN GO TO MOVE YOUR BODY TO WITH LATIN, OLDIES OR NEW WAVE-TECHNO MUSIC.

    Dress Code: USUALLY NOTHING TOO FANCY. WOMEN TAKE MORE CARE OF THEIR OUTLOOK THAN MEN DO. WHATEVER YOU FEEL LIKE WEARING.

    Tas Tas: Old town essential

    by carlitoab Written Jun 15, 2005
    Donostia's smallest club

    This is one of the smallest nightclubs I have ever visited. Located in the heart of the old town, near loads of other bars and cafes, Tas Tas is a tiny, narrow bar that calls itself a nightclub. The often have people outside offering a free drink to temp people in but it is worth a visit...

    It is usually full of tourists, notably americans getting drunk for the first time which is quite amusing.

    Dress Code: Pretty much anything goes

    San Sebastian, a city to enjoy nightlife...

    Your vision, after a night in San Sebastian

    You have probably already heard about spanish time, no ? These guys eat at 11 at night, make fun until 4 in the morning, and wake up at 8 to go to work... May this country go on like that ? Absolutely !!! And, believe me, a lot of people come from France or England to Spain, only to enjoy all the fun and the "tapas", the "pintxos", the "discotecas", in short, the atmosphere of this great country... All this, you may find in San Sebastian, of course...

    Dress Code: It's funny how much young people love the gothic style and piercings... Men, as well as women, never hesitate to display big earrings, even liprings or noserings (probably the corrida influence)...

    Tapas

    by magictravelers Written Feb 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most people who come here do the tapas thing. Go out to the old town of San Sebastian and go bar to bar, eat a couple of tapas and have a drink. Each bar has its own tapas besides the normal tortilla, croqueta, etc.
    It can be very expensive at the end, so make sure you bring money

    Dress Code: No requirement, unless you go to a dancing club or restaurant

  • Any Bar there....: The Old Town Knows How to Entertain

    by Shafali Updated Sep 28, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Old Town comes alive after 9 pm and make sure to find a bar early so you can get in on the action because the tiny streets as well as the tiny bars get packed as the night progresses. They close around 3 am but it is full of music, debauchery and endless small talk until then!
    I even had to lay my head down to rest from the endless activity. We made too many friends that night.....
