Not much in the way of real nightlife on the Island, but plenty of good restaurants.
Good prices too.
And just because I am nearly 40, doesn’t mean I didn’t look. I can look, that’s for sure.
What I wrote above here seems crazy now. Im now nearly 51 years old, and to think back when I posted this tip I was only nearly 40. And well, my views have really changed, and with more past visits I know there is much more to do than just "look" :) This is such a beautiful Island, and for it's size, has loads to do now, and you are not going to be bored.
At last I found a bar you can sit in, have a nice gin and tonic and talk, without loud music or Television, and with great drinks to boot ! No food either only crisps,
Magma sells the cheapest beer in Costa Teguise, their cocktails and other drinks are of good value.
The owners are very friendly and will give you a warm welcome.
Open only in the evening.
Dress Code: Very informal, no dress code.
Chispaz is about the cheapest bar in Costa Teguise, they serve generous measures of spirits, cocktails and beer without any frills to keep the costs down.
The bar is small and only open in the evenings, it can get very busy, as the prices make this a very popular bar with the visitors.
They do good cocktails, beers and spirits.
Dress Code: In the Pueblo Marinero, there is no dress code.
Hook is my favorite cocktail bar, it's in the centre of Costa Teguise it's by far the best cocktail bar around. Sit outside in the warm sunshine and relax, or just watch the the pop videos on the big screen outside.
The service is good and friendly and the price's are very reasonable priced.
Try their Gin and Tonic, the best I've ever had or sex on the beach, they're all just wonderful, there are many variety's of drinks at this bar.
A small craft market is held in the square here every Friday night, so it's a good place to sit and people watch.
Visited again in 2013, still the best cocktails around, but a little expensive.
Dress Code: No dress code, very casual.
There are some really good typical Spanish bars and restaurants in Costa Teguise.
I love Kermans who have 2 restaurants near the Pueblo Marinero, they have a gorgeous and ever changing selection of Tapas - the best ive seen in Lanzarote!
Las Maretas behind the post office (correos) serve mostly main courses Los Bocaditos opposite the correos has lovely tapas (Huevos Rotos or Broken Eggs is my favourite with crispy skinny freid potatotes, jamon serrano, red peppers and poached eggs) ! yum.
There are many English bars of course who serve mostly fast food, which I personally dont like. But there are cheap Chinese restaurants offering a meal for 6 euros, or The Wok in Playa Bastian for Asian fusion food and all you can eat for 12.95. My special place for birthdays or when Im feeling flash is the Italian restaurant, De Pasta near Pueblo Marinero. One of the best in the world in my opinion.
Except at Carnival in February and Fiesta time in July/August the atmosphere is pretty relaxed and quite. The all -inclusive hotels, restaurants & bars provide a lot of the entertainment.
There are karoke bars for English people like 'The Bull Dog' or 'The Sunburnt Arms' that boast 'live music' and 'quizz nights.. and its worth mooching about the Pueblo Marinero to hear and see what's going on'. My personal favourite is Tekkers Bar, next door to the Spar supermarket with many evenings of live music by local musicians.
Some of the bigger hotels host their own entertainment with cabarets, discos and tribute acts.
Dress Code: Smart casual. Never ever beach wear!
Its worth a trip to the Marina to mooch about the cruisers and boats, or take an evening cruise.
An array of lively bars and Restaurants line the marina with lots of variety in food and entertainment.
From Mc Sorleys snug, to Amura's five star 'gastronomic experience'. Italian, Indian or Spanish cuisine, or just the ice cream parlour. Something for everyone.
You could catch the small boat taxi from Puerto del Carmen.
Dress Code: smart casual
a little bar with no frills ie no sparklers in their cocktail and you get what you ask for nothing else. The cheapest bar by far in Costa Teguise and the difference can be quite supstantial about one and a half euros on two shorts. and two euros on a cocktail.
Dress Code: not applicable
Hooks is situated in the centre of Pablo Marinero and can get very busy as soon as the place opens . there are invriably queues waiting for seating and the waiters are very quick with your order
Dress Code: not applicable
on the second floor of centro Atlantico the space club is new ,fun,alternative and gyratingly loud.2 euro drinks nights monday and thursday with live acts several nights a week.
Dress Code: a little bit trampy,vampy leather and metal although the beach wear brigade like myself were in abundance.
wow... open till 7 or 8 in morning,music was excellent.Really kicks off when hippodrome,ricks and the space club close at 4. All the nightclubs in the atlantic centre close at 4 but along the prom 928 pumps up the volunme. it has the advantage of being where the locals go and many of the people who were serving you in the other clubs will be guests here
We probably sampled most of the bars etc in Puerto del Carmen - some of them pretty good, some average to bad. The only memorable place that stuck in my mind though is The Music Hall. Don't leave Lanzarote without paying a visit - it was the funniest night I'd had for a while (added bonus was when mark got dragged up on stage for a few numbers).
Neck a few of the cocktails before she comes on just in case. Don't go near the food though- it was vile!
Call me boring but we wanted a family bar and found it here. Our kids played pool and cards with the other kids whilst we chatted to other couples and the friendly owners all night. Great cocktails at half UK prices for us AND the kids, plus they knocked us 15% off our bill! It was like being in a friendly pub back home. Also managed to watch 3 scottish football games, live, over 2 days much to the wife's annoyance!
Only downfall was the racket from a singer at a nearby bar.
Forgot to say, they don's sell food but let us get take aways from nearby places to eat in the bar - you can even bring yer butties!
Dress Code: Tops on indoors , but swimwear fine during day for out on the sunterrace. Kilts purely optional !! They wear them here at new year though
One evening, after having a drink in a bar, we went for a walk on promenade and found that there are several big trampolines for "big children" open since 10pm. I don't know why they are only open at night but I was always jealous for kids jumping at such things in different parks and could not resist to jump myself. :)
Buzzing, lively, lots to do. There are 100's of bars and restaurants on the main Avenida de las Playas - and a number of nightclubs like Ruta 66 or Harley Rock and Mulligans open til the early hours of the morning.
For simply people watching, there are plenty of bars and restaurants overlooking the street and main beach. There also seems to be a Chinese Restaurant on every street corner- there are also a number of Italian Restaurants.
My all time favorite is Spanish food as I love fresh fish and seafood - there are many in the Old Harbour, which also has a great atmosphere at night.
There are often fiestas, carnivals, games of boules, youth bands, musical festivals etc in the Plaza, or town square of the old town. It is worth finding out if there is anything taking place whilst you are on holiday. There is a small childrens play area, a boules court and a lively buzzing atmosphere.
Dress Code: Mostly smart casual - and it is not polite to come in straight off the beach wearing bikins etc.
this is an english bar on the edge of playa blanca, its good for a beer and watching live football but i didnt like the staffs attitude and service was awful so i would steer clear
otherwise, next door is an irish bar where i spend new years eve, i dont remember the name but it was a great night
there are plenty of other bars in playa blanca but for the best nightlife youre probably best heading to puerto del carmen
