    a good taste in music which still allows conversation
    An enjoyable drink

    Rua das Hortas

    Hortas from Obradoiro

    This tiny street starting at the other corner of Obradoiro Square is also famous for its bars and clubs. It is specially crowded in weekends during the University months.
    It is called so (Veggies garden street) becaude there used to be many of those in this area. In fact, if you enter some side alleys you will still find potatoes and carrots here and there!

    Rua do Franco

    The beginning of the street

    This pedestrian street is lively with many bars and terraces both by day and night. It is located in the old town, starting in the right corner of the Obradoiro square (if you look to the cathedral from the square).
    Locals who come here for some drinks say they are "going to do the Paris-Dakar": there is a bar in the first block called "Paris" and the street ends in a bar called "Dakar" so doing the Paris-Dakar is going bar hopping all along the street, nice sport BTW and won't take you as much as the real race :-)))

    Guaygaba: Good dancing

    by Nexus7 Written Aug 21, 2005
    Guaygaba

    This is a popular night club that sports different latin dances such as Merengue, Salsa and anything else with a beat. It doesn't really play hip-hop or techno, unless it has a jungle feeling to it. The theme is consistent.

    Dress Code: Anything you want really.

    EL PARAISO PERDIDO

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to try the best HOT CHOCOLATE in the world come to this place. You can also have caipirinha and all kinds of alcoholic drinks. The decoration is beautiful, completely different from what you are used to. You won't be dissapointed.

    Dress Code: In Quintana's Square, go up the stairs and take the small street on the right. You will find a kind of small square on the left. There it is.

    This bar is decorated as if it were a street. There's a crossroads, a trafficlight that goes res if you drink more than you should.... It has a terrace from where there are beautiful views of Monasterio de Belvis, but it is only open when the weather is good. You can play billard and order tropical drinks.

    Nightlife in Santiago

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Santiago is a students city so you will find a lot of night life.

    On Thursday there are a lot of students and pilgrims. At weekends there's more nightlife than on Thursday.

    If you want to drink 1-litre plastic glass drinks fo 6 € go to bar Ourense. It's quite cheap.

    General nightlife

    by IneXisTenZ Updated Nov 22, 2002

    In this city in which its university atmosphere can be chewed, you you will pass it fantastically.
    It is certain that in Santiago one does not go away of glasses, but you do not worry because "one goes away of cups", container in which fits more quite promising Ribeiro and for that reason of which it will be the rest at night.
    The classic zones of always full nocturnal life, even the days of newspaper, where you will be able have fun until the dawn are:

    THE OLD ZONE. -
    Its spine is the Rúa of the Franc, with an impressive concentration of restaurants, the premises and bars of most typical than will open to the appetite with their fantastic giant pots of squid and their rebosantes wine bowls to you. Here the student atmosphere is lived like which more, and you are not surprised when you see happen to "tuna" , because up to one of his more typical songs speak of these houses.

    The NEW ZONE Or Of the EXTENSION. -
    Here, mainly in the zone that surrounds to the Red Seat , to premises infinity of and pub of diverse order are located. At the most varied forms of, between the students, who "go of cups", those that fill the social gatherings of the coffees, so many of them with that atmosphere years 20, that remember to when here important literary circles and those were celebrated that prefer the most modern wave or the disco. In any case the night will connect with the dawn.

    Pubs old town: Bustling and active

    by keltic Written Nov 17, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The city is an university city, so you won´t get bored. Go to the old town pubs which are decorated with stone, wood and old things, to listen to Celtic music (the Tamboura), Other options are Paraiso Perdido, Pubs at San Pelayo Street, Conga 8, Galo d´Ouro, Retablo, and plenty of cafes like: Metate (for good chocolate), Aires Nunes (nice for tea) and Casino. The traditional old european cafe opened in 1873 and decorated with carvings, glass and old furniture. The new town around Plaza Roxa, offers more modern places and some Disco pubs. Don´t miss the Derby (traditional Cafe) at Plaza de Galicia.

    Nightlife is more abundant in...

    by b1bob Written Aug 28, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nightlife is more abundant in this small to middling city than it is in some of the bigger cities in the world. This being a university town, there are bars and discotheques at every stone's throw. Unfortunately, I didn't note down any of the names of these places, but I'm guessing there's something for everybody.

    Dress Code: Many discotheques are particular about insisting that folks wear long pants.
