head to Salou: Nightlife in the winter
I lived in Tarragona for about 2 years. Its a great city, with good nightlife and vibes of its own. However, in the winter months, it is very quiet
All the communities along that stretch of coast line will be very quiet except for Salou. Obviously it is busier during the summer, but it is the only real good party area that lasts through the winter.
An evening in Placa de la Font
Placa de la Font, is the main square at the foot of the old town in Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain. Close to Rambla Nova, the Town Hall can be found at one end. The outer are edges of the square are adorned by a variety of reasonably priced restaurants including a Chinese, Galateria and various Pasta and Paella restaurants, with seating inside or out, beautiful on a balmy evening. A word of warning, avoid Rufi Restaurant. However, all the other restaurants are reasonably priced, in a lovely setting. Whilst we were sat people watching one evening, we were fortunate enough to experiance a marching band arrive at the town hall, heralding the visit of a group of VIP's, magnificent.
As the suns starts to go down, the Placa takes on a lovely relaxed vibe that everyone seems to thoroughly enjoy.

Camping Torre de la Mora: Writing in the Diary of a Madman.
Whenever we undertake a journey to a particular country we always want to know all about the surroundings, it’s history, it’s culture, which cities to visit, which hikes to undertake, et cetera. In advance to the journey we browse over the internet to get certain information and read travel books just to make sure we won’t miss out on anything.
Once we’re travelling we like to talk to the local people about their own country, their own region and those conversations will retrieve lots of extra information about some beautiful spots to visit, the ultimate restaurant or sometimes a particular area to avoid.
Ever since we had our own personal travel site and this one at Virtual Tourist we like not only to undertake the journey, but also write about it for everyone to enjoy. Just to make sure we won’t forget the details of our journey we write is all down in a diary. We have given the dairy the name “Diary of a madman” and it contains all the information we have gathered. We like to make the diary more beautiful to glue in some pictures out of folders and also the entrance tickets to museums, National Parks, bus tickets, et cetera.
This way we’re able to tell all our friends about our travels. For Virtual Tourist we can reproduce all the information for (hopefully) solid tips with lots of good details that will help you in your travels. Besides that it’s always fun to read about a journey we took for example 7 or 8 years ago and read about what we exactly did and how we experienced it. We also have managed to keep in touch with the local people we talked to and do nourish these contacts. Especially at the travelogue section of each location you can see some pages out of the Diary of a madman. Yes, we know, it's written in Dutch, but you'll have an impression on how it looks. And maybe you can tell us how you remember all the information for your tips. Enjoy!

El Cau ("The Cave"): Underground nightclub
In typical local fashion, the bars and nightclubs do not begin until late. The front doors to The Cave might not even be open before 10pm and will not be crowded until midnight, but it will be a good time until ~4am.
It is located in an ancient underground cellar, therefore its relatively cool until the body heat of the dance floor warms things up. There are some lounge couches, tables and a trendy bar. In the back there is a dance floor that plays a bit of electronic/dance music.
Dress Code: Casual
Port: Dancing at the port
Many foreigners visit and take their holidays in Salou/Cambrils/La Pineda, etc. For those looking for some diversity and a place where the locals go, the Tarragona Port is a good choice. Its not as big as Salou, but will have only a few foreigners and mostly locals.
There are 12~15 bars and clubs on the lower level of the boardwalk along the port and beach area. There is rock, hip-hop, salsa, metal, and many more. It is just a mesh of young energetic people having fun. It usually starts up about midnight and ends 4~5am. Obviously summer is the season and can be relatively quiet in the winter.
Dress Code: casual
I dont think there are many...
I dont think there are many places to go out, I mean... no big discoteques... but I think 'Amposta' is where you can find more varieties of clubs or pubs.
There are some bars as 'Tibet' or 'Velvet' where you will enjoy with music and people.. and also with the little but charm bars that there are as: 'Tiras' in Camarles, 'Universal' in Deltebre...
bierwinkel: german bier
located in placa de la font the bierwinkle has a great offering of german beer which is rare in spain. a must stop for those who appreciate a cold german brew.
