Los Angeles Bar and Restaurant: Relax With a Drink and Some Live Music!
Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, excellent singing male duo on keyboard and guitar, every evening.
Easy to sit and while away an hour or two! Didn't eat here, but the Irish coffees were special enough to keep coming back for!
Cafe de Paris: Waltzing to Archi Duo
The cafe seems to be quiet about 8.30pm. Then a couple of guys come in and turn on the disco lights, take the covers off the musical instruments and by nine o clock the music starts. The people start to drift in.Trumpet and keyboard to entertain and one of the musicians does a little vocal.
Some of the tables have been taken away to make room to dance. And "Yay" they play Pasa Doble and the Spanish love it but also there is a waltz...a quickstep...even a tango as well.
So you can eat, drink, and be merry, and dance till late. Who would have expected such good dance music? I want to go back for New Year.
Dress Code: There was no set code but those who were up dancing were tidy. I wore something a little more dressy for our last two visits. Some were just sitting watching the dancing from under the umbrellas on the side walk.
On some special nights the dancing is inside in a beautifully decorated dining and dance area. Probably Friday and Saturday .

Abaco Museum House: Abaco
Abaco is, imho, a very neat idea; and as it often happens with neat ideas, it is also a quite simple one. You simply had to reform an old colonial mansion, and serve expensive fashion drinks to the people that will undoubtedly come there, attracted to the extremely romantic environment. Simple, yet effective. :-) The same idea has been working in Palma de Mallorca for years: Classical Music, dim lights, fresh fruit in the floor (yes, you have read correctly, fruit in the floor). An absolute must while in Tenerife... unless your idea of night life begins and finish with a British pub, of course. ;-)
Dress Code: According to the elegant environment, classy should be the norm here, though Spanish dress codes are generally quite open. Just remember not to show up there wearing your beach flip-flops. :-p

Carpe Diem: Fashion cocktails
A nice bar in the middle of Puerto de la Cruz!! At first, we didn’t trust our eyes, so our only option was to rely on our taste: a large and excellent selection of cocktails, reasonable prices, great view from the balcony, friendly staff... Totally out of place among the karaoke bars, the grill houses, the pizzerias, the horrendous neon lights that configured Puerto de La Cruz night life.
Dress Code: Pretty open.
~ 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
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.
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.
COSTAMAR HOTEL BAR.: LOS CRISTIANOS.
A good place to start a good night out in Los Cristianos is the bar of the Costamar apartments. Have a few drinks here then jump in a cab right outside the hotel and head off to the bars and clubs of Playa de las americas .
Dress Code: Summer wear!!
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!
BOBBY'S BAR.: PLAYA DE LAS AMERICAS
The strip of nightclubs and bars in Playa de Las Americas is known as "VERONICAS". Bobbys bar, Linekers, Busbys are the places to have a good drink and dance. Also try the Waikiki Bar , its a great bar , tucked around a corner and is often missed but is well worth visiting.
Dress Code: Anything goes!!
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.
as the canaries are under the influence of spain, flamenco dancing is something you can watch on the island.
one of the hotel in our neighbourhood was doing a flamenco night and eventhough we were not from this hotel, they did let us in .
flamenco is quit an entertaining dance so if you get the chance, try to go and see a show.
Hoppers: Karaoke Fun
Karaoke fun at Hoppers go there and meet a great Scottish family Have a go on the Karaoke (wheather you can sing or not!) or just sit and have a drink and watch the fun
great for everyone
Come and meet Dinny and Geordie George and Le-Le Limon at the Karaoke
And the rest of the gang
Dress Code: Anything goes
we were staying in a small village about 10 km south of Los Christianos and i must say there wasnt much to do at night.
so we just went to the club in a hotel in the neighbourhood only to find kids and older people...it didnt stop us having fun and i think this older lady had the time of her life when we made her dance...
most people would go to the pubs, clubs, and caraoke bars in the biggest town.
we went to Playa del America one evening and i must say, what i saw wasnt my cup of tea, there was nothing tipycal about the place.
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).
