Salamanca is full of nightlife activities, the best example for this is the tunos, who are mainly university students who sing in the Plaza Mayor. They sing specially for women that is why they are so romantic and nice that every woman can fall in love with them. I like the tunos very much so this is an excuse to go back there, they are so romantic! Very Spanish!
Dress Code: The tunos wear black short trousers and jackets, some of them also wear black hats. Those who study at the Facultad de Medicina (medicine) wear a jellow scarf, the ones who study at the Facultad de Derecho (law) wear a purple scarf.
Salamanca has so much to offer in this respect.. jacko's (a bar dedicated to micheal jackson) is great if you like obscenely large drinks on the cheap.. camelot is a club that can be quite cheesy.. usually only entered into on a friday/saturday..when everyones there dancing their socks off to the grease soundtrack and forgetting to be embarrassed..
personally i think the park is great.. always some friendly spaniards making mojitos and inclined to share..
there are so many "irish bars" in salamanca.. being irish myself i thought id find some familiarityt, but really its just that they value the name!.. "the irish rover" is great for some dancing.. poor enough midweek but is packed at the weekend..
molly malones,the shamrock, etc. are among others..
la chupeteria was my favourite spot.. all shots 1 euro.. it wouldnt be the most personal of places.. but if you enjoy a variety of shots on fire,and all the rest of it, its great fun.. theres a grassy area outside for collapsing on afterwards!
for the more sophistacted drink with friends.. tin tin is great, jazz music often playing outside.. and the rum in there is great!
there is so much to explore in salamanca.. and the nightlife only really kicks off after 11pm until the early morning..
and if you are really really up for an allnighter.. the garramond or circus...open at 4am for an underground dance session!
el sabor is a salsa place.. can drink and salsa simultaneously if you like!
what else... ah yes.. you will most definitly come accross leonardo's.. its a greasy mc.greasy fast food place.. and you might be repulsed initially but i dont know anywhere in the world where a bacon con queso bocadillo has ever tasted so good..
well worth getting 2..
salamanca everyone walks everywhere so you'll burn it off easily enough!.. all in all.. fantastic city and a place i would visit again... enjoy
Salamanca is crazy. People dont go out clubbing till well after 1am 2am.... its friendly, cheap and fun. Crap music but thats half of the fun.
This town is a mix of old people and young people, very little in between
Dress Code: casual
The only Michael Jackson themed bar I know in existence! Pictures of the great man adorn the walls and his music adorns the jukebox all night. They also serve "Pintas" of beer which in fact are not pints of beer since they consist of about 50% head and as someone who takes his beer seriously wished the bar staff would go on a beer-pouring course!
I come every summer to Salamanca and this year Camelot have change its atmosphere. There is an ongoing territorial feud for this club. The gay comunity is claiming it against the underage age brats of Salamanca who also wants it. The result some fights from the brats that are ready to take every place of this little club. My friends from here have told me that they expect to have a high number of raids this season. Considering that the police here is not very friendly and with the leanguage barrier I'd be staying away from Camelot this summer. The drinks are also very expensive and the alcohol is homemaid like in everyother bar in Bordadores, so it's not worth the danger. Instead there are great choices, last weekend I went to the Irish Rover not so far from main square and the place was packed, good music, and more girls than guys making the atmosphere more than fiendly. People meet under the clock at main square so O'haras is a good place to get started jus a few steps on Zamora street. Other choices are Cum Laudem (need to dress a little better - no sneakers), Transtevere, Garamond and Capitolium.
Dress Code: Dress Code in Camelot is non existant but the gorilla at the entrance picks who enters.
wow to alternative ,here it is.The Morgana seems Salamanca has a Dumbarton/castle of the britains/camelot edge to its nightloife so it came as no surprise this individual planet of fun was so busy. It seemed to be the lastspot when other bars were closing this was still going
Dress Code: Black, gothic punk and whatever
Plaza Mayor and the streets around it are great for a relaxing evening stroll, which you will see many families enjoying, but there are also a few good bars around here. There's a place called Bambu just outside the square on the southwest corner and if you head out from the northern gate, you'll be a few steps from a popular Irish Pub, called O'Haras.
If you're interested in something more culturally significant (although taking with Spanish women is very culturally interesting to me), you could check out a performance at the recently renovated Teatro Liceo in Plaza del Liceo, just outside Plaza Mayor (off of the southeast corner).
I walked from Plaza Mayor (where this are also some decent nightlife spots) all the way iup to Zamora which turns into Paseo del Doctor Torres Villaroel to Calle Van Dyck on the northern end of town. Here you'll find a number of great bars and restaurants and a pretty good scene. I ate at El Bodegon (see my restaurant tip) and also had some drinks at El Corral de Abuela. There are so many places here that you shouldn't have any trouble finding a place, but some of them are pretty small and seating is sometimes limited.
Well, the best thing about the nightlife in Salamanca is that going out on the town is very cheap and for women can sometimes be free. We spent 4 weeks in Salamanca and found out if you leave early enough (between 11:30 pm and 12:30 am) you can get free open bar in most clubs--women only--it will cost the guys 4 euros. Then if you bar hop most bars will offer you a free drink if you walk into the bar. I never spend any money when I went out. :-)
Nightlife in Salamanca is amazing. Almost every night there is open bars, pay 3 euro to get in and drink all you want untill 3:00am. People don't even start to go out untill 12:30 or later. Every bar plays fun music to dance to. Late night clubs go off untill 6:00am
Chupiteria is some kind of bar whear you can go to drink and have a lot of fun with your friends.You can drink chupito for 1EUR, but you can not drink so many because its very strong. Chupito is some kind of coctels,servecing in small glassis and drink like tequila.In chupiteria yoy have list with the best chupitos with ingredientes for that night.For me, the best is "chupito rojo" and have some interesting custm about him.Befour you drink it you must to blow your glass 3 times in a table and say Cheguevara.After 3,4,..."chupitos rojos"you are definitly ready for discoteque.
Cum Laude is another one of my favorite bars in Salamanca. It is much bigger than many of the other bars where you are crammed in with little ventilation and it has one of the most aesthetically pleasing dance floors in all of the town. The dance floor is a mini replica of the Plaza Mayor. You will have to dress a little better to get in here on the weekends!
Trastevere is situated right next door to La Chupiteria and after downing several shots, the crowd comes here to shake it out on the dance floor. The bar has a Greek theme with disco lights and streamers galore.
This is by far one of the most popular places to start the evening after walking from the Plaza Mayor with your friends. The Bar La Chupiteria is famous for its cheap shots, or chupitos, which go for a euro a piece. For the strange creature who does not take shots the bar also has a limited selection of beer, but expect strange looks if you go this route.
Camelot is a fun little place with medieval looking banners hanging inside. The coolest thing about this place is that it was originally an old church, but the owners purchased it from a nearby convent and turned it into a club that blares techno music until the sun comes up. This is a great place to go drinking and dancing, but is rather student dominated.
