In Playa: HONOLULU BAR
The Honolulu is tucked away behind the Veronicas complex in Playa de las Americas. Its a great , friendly fun filled bar and a great place to meet up at the start of a busy evening!!
~ Rhythm & Booze ~: ~ Fab Cocktails & Karaoke ~
Rhythm & Booze is one of the best nightclub/bars in Playa Paraiso, it has a nice bar area & there are plenty of tables & chairs around if you would like to sit around watch the tv or listen to the karaoke later on at night.
I enjoyed the cocktails here, they only cost 5 Euros and come in a big glass wit fancy straws & sparklers in them. You can sing karaoke here & sing the night away or you can sit & watch or even play pool as there are a couple of tables. The old guy behind the bar is a right laugh, really nice chap & you can have a good chat to him about anything.
Dress Code: Anything you like to wear. No dress code
Veronica's area: If you like pubs and clubs look no further
Around the Veronica's area there are dozen's of pubs and clubs which stay open till the small hours. It is usually very busy from around 8pm and onwards. If your looking to go for a quite drink avoid this area. If your looking for a night of binge drinking and loud music then you wont be disopointed.
Dress Code: Anytihing goes. no dress code in any bar or club as far as i know.
promenade: Night time walk
It is very nice just walking along all the restaurants , maybe watching some guys going for the last surf before its dark..stopping for a drink in any kind of bar..looking into some shops..relaxing..ohh yes there are some nightclubs too in playa de las americas..but i never made it there..
Dress Code: depending what time of the year you go..

Streets of Santa Cruz de Tenerife: Crazy nights
I think that great nightime entertainment option is the Carnival during the week before Ash Wednesday . The people start celebrating in the evening and end the party around eight o'clock next day. It's crazy and very funny. Don't forget to take any crazy carnival costume otherwise you will feel like "a clown.";-)
Pequeno Buda: Puerto de la Cruz - Pequeno Buda
This was a great place, very chilled with comfy sofa-style seating and dark but cozy orange/red decor and lighting. It's a great place for cocktails and they did our favourite, Caipirinha.
Service is a bit hit & miss, waiters come and see to you when you first walk in, but after that if you want anything else you have to go and search for them. That's not much of a problem though, and the prices are cheap enough, 4 Euro for a cocktail (we were paying 5.80 in Las Americas).
JC Murphy's: Santa Cruz - JC Murphy's
When is an Irish Pub not an Irish Pub? This one bears a plaque declaring "Guinness Official Irish Pub" and it's called JC Murphy's, so that must surely make it an Irish Pub. Except that when you get inside you could be in downtown Havanna or somewhere, it's all so typically colonial with it's ochre coloured walls, spinning roof fans and laid back latin vibe. And when I asked for 2 pints of Guinness the staff didn't even understand me - does Guinness not sound like Guinness in Spanish? In the end I had to point at it!
It's a great pub though, I liked the atmosphere and I liked the music, and of course I liked the Guinness ;-)
The Corner Bar: Playa de las Americas - The Corner Bar
The Corner Bar is something of a safe-haven for those who prefer a typical "quiet night out" at an English style pub. This even goes as far as the Sunday Roast dinner (which is also served on Wednesday) and dishes such as Cheese Toasties, quiche, chips & onion rings.
My in-laws seem to really like this place, probably because of all of the above (their adventurous days are long behind them). In the evenings they have a cabaret singer/compare on who sings every song in the style of Billy Joel and takes the *** out of Germans.
The whole strip of places on Parque de la Paz beside The Corner Bar are similar, all very "english pub", all with entertainment of one sort or another (The Soul Suite specialises in guess what...) and most with inside and outside seating.
Dress Code: Shirts must be worn inside.
Various Places: Puerto Colon - Various
There's a good cluster of very similar looking places (all with these thatched type of shades) around the Puerto Colon area and they're all great for sitting and watching the sun set over the sea.
Most of these places do a full menu if you want, but they're happy for you to just have a drink if that's all that you want. Drinks are usually cheaper by day than by night - by day you can usually get a "pint" for about 1 Euro.
The Castle Pub: Puerto Colon - The Castle Pub
The Castle is a bit "twee" looking but it's conveniently located on the promenade quite near to Puerto Colon and its marina. Its a good place to stop for an re-invigorating drink if you're doing the whole promenade walk and just behind it is a pretty good Mexican restaurant too, if you're passing this way at dinner times.
We passed The Castle in the mid-evening one day and found it closed, so I'm not sure if it stays open late or if this was a one-off.
Caleta - Beach Bar
Right at the end of the promenade, beyond Playa Del Duque, the scenic lookout point and the last of the hotels, there is a path that continues on towards Caleta. Before you get to the village you come across this beach bar which is open for drinks and light snacks by day and by night.
By day/early evening they pump out a chilled latin beat, but by night I suspect it gets a bit noiser as they host beach discos in the evenings.
At sunset this is a great place to come and watch the sun go down while sipping a cool beer or a cocktail before beginning the long walk back to Las Americas.
Dress Code: None, even swimwear is OK!
The Anaga Avenue is an important nightlife spot in Santa Cruz, there are a lot of restaurants, bars, coffee bar or pubs. It begin in another two important points in the Capital Town: The places of Spain and Candelaria and is in front of the coast.
Auditorium is a modern bizarre building in Santa Cruz and is one of the most striking modern structures in Canary Island. The auditorium is a creation of Santiago Calatrava a very important spanish architect. The Auditorium is the opera house of Santa Cruz, opened in 2003 it has a main auditorium seating more than 1,600.
Veronicas Strip: Veronicas Strip
By day Veronicas is mainly used for shopping with a few bars open but by night it really comes alive with nightclubs and bars buzzing to the latest sounds. It is built on three floors by the sea front in Playa De Las Americas. The bars range from small Irish bars to larger clubs, my favourite ones can be found on the main page.
Dress Code: Anything goes.
The Moonlight Bar: The Moonlight Bar
The Moonlight Bar is situated overlooking the sea near the Torviscas area of Playa de Las Americas. It is open all day and has different entertainment daily from karaoke, comedians and singers/bands.
The Blues Brothers, are definately ones not to be missed unless you are easily offended.
Next to the Moonlight Bar is the Moonlight Bar Irish Corner, it is the smaller and lesser used of the two bars and I found that the entertainment was nothing brilliant, but on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday nights there is an absolutely superb covers band called The Lizard Kings.They are really good and deserve to play somewhere a lot bigger than where they do at present, you may have seen them previously at the Soul Cellar which I think was a much better venue for them.
Dress Code: Anything goes.
