Bambuda Bar: Up-scale Club near Hotel Maremares
This was the best club in Lecheria. I am the kind of person that likes to try different clubs. But in the end, I preferred to just spend every night (Wed, Fri, Sat) here. You can go anytime for dinner, but the club doesn't get happening until 11 pm. That is the case for most of the clubs in Puerto La Cruz. By about midnight they essentially have 3 different rooms/areas that are each playing different music. If you come after 11:30 pm you will have to wait in line and they might not let you in.
Surprisingly I discovered that Wednesday is a very crowded night here. Wednesday is Ladies night, free drinks for ladies from 10pm-midnight. And they make the drinks strong too! It was so crowded there that I forgot it was a weeknight and I ended up staying until 2. People stay there until 4 or 5 am.
This place seems to attract a 30-something crowd. It's walking distance from the Hotel Maremares. It is right next to the Golf Course (Campo de Golf). If you get bored here (I doubt you will), you can go right next door to La Mania.
Bambuda Bar has live music on Thurs, Fri, and Sat nights. The band is good and plays a wide variety of music. During their breaks, a DJ plays music. I heard all different kinds of music there, Spanish Pop, Merengue, Salsa, Reggaeton, and even some old American songs. I recall the band pulling my friend on stage (she has blonde hair) to sing Summer Nights from Grease.
By the way, two rooms in Bambuda Bar are very well air conditioned. The third area is outside (al fresco).

Dejavu: Nightclub with 2 Rooms
One Saturday we went here and it was really crowded (2 dance floors open). We went here on another Friday night and it wasn't very crowded at all (only one room was open). They have a nice outdoor patio area by the water. One of the dance floors plays a mixture of music: merengue, salsa, reggaeton. The other room plays techno/house music.

Dress Code: There are doormen who select who can come inside. If you aren't dressed well and it is crowded, they may choose to not let you in.
Sourdough Sports Bar & Restaurant: Live Music
This place is primarily a restaurant. They have a few TVs, but they're too small for people to seriously watch sports there. At around 10 pm on Thurs, Fri, and Sat they have live music. they play mostly salsa and merengue, but a few other types of songs as well.
I like Bambuda Bar the best, Sourdough second, Nikki Beach third, and La Mania last.
This place really decorates for Halloween, as you can see in the pictures.
By the way, don't order a margarita here, it's not good at all. The fajitas are good here.
Dress Code: Very casual.
La Mania Sports Bar and Music: Salsa and Merengue Dance Club
It appears to be a 30-something crowd with also some 20-somethings. This club is actually right next to Bambuda Bar. It is located next to the Golf Course (Campo de Golf). This place gets happening around 11 pm on Wed, Thurs, Fri, and Sat nights. I went in this club twice to check it out. I really don't like the club very much. All they played is salsa and merengue music. Normally that would be fine, but no guys asked us to dance. We were never approached by strangers in the club, which is different for us. Usually I would say this is a good thing, because creepy guys are leaving us alone. But when you are 2 girls at a salsa club, you can only dance by yourself for so long before you get bored. So if you go here, make sure you come in couples. Also the atmosphere here is not very nice. It's a dark club, nothing interesting to look at. I think Wednesday night is Ladies night, which means free beer for ladies.
Dress Code: No dress code. This place looks pretty casual.

Nikki Beach: Club with Indoor and Outdoor Areas
This place is larger than a regular club. It is an entertainment complex, with a food court, hammocks, beds, an outdoor bar, and an indoor club/bar.
I heard that it used to be a popular place, but it's not as much anymore. They didn't have any live music when I was there and I was a little annoyed because they played techno music for about an hour straight. I prefer a little more variety. I know that they play other kinds of music too, because earlier in the night I heard them play reggaeton and merengue. I guess it depends on what time. Also this place did not seem as upscale and cozy as Bambuda Bar.
There seems to be a 20-something crowd at this club.
In case you are staying at Hotel Maremares, this is not walking distance.
Dress Code: The women dress in a beach theme. So you will see women wearing white pants or white capri pants. I wore jeans. I don't think they have a dress code.
NIKKY BEACH: ALL IN ONE
All in one, here you will find Nightclub, eating and drinking, dancing, people watching.
Really it is incredible the place, it have like 4 different type of food, one big place were the music it is, also have hammock and excellent view.
Todo en uno, aqu? encontraras discoteca, restaurantes y bares, lugar para bailar, sentarse a mirar a la gente. Realmente es incre?ble el lugar, tiene 4 diferentes lugares de comida, un lugar grande donde m?sica es tambi?n hamacas camas en la arena con una excelente vista
Dress Code: No needed

Afrodisiakos: Nice lounge
This lounge is a nice place to go to talk with friends. It's not too loud, so you can still hear each other. They have indoors and outdoors seating. They have a DJ (on Fridays for sure) that plays house music. This is also a Peruvian restaurant
Go to Lecheria: Bambuda Bar, the best in town
people from Puerto la Cruz and visitors go to Lecheria for fun at night. The best place in town is Bambuda Bar, the most beautiful people of the place are there. I was there during "Copa America" and even the professional soccer players used to go there for fun and more...
Good Website: List of Clubs and Events
This website is the most updated list of clubs, events, and photos:
In addition, when you are in Puerto La Cruz pick up a free magazine called "De Costa a Costa". They issue a different magazine each month and you can either find it in the lobby of the Hotel Maremares (near the computers) or near the entrance of the MVP restaurant/bar in the C.C. Golf Plaza (Avenida Americo Vespuccio). Look in the section called "en la movida" to see what clubs have events on which nights.
Brew Brothers Pub and American Bistro: Another Nightclub/Restaurant
We went here for dinner and it seems like a pretty nice place. We didn't stay for the nightlife, because it wasn't a busy night (there was another concert happening the same night). Keep in mind that Bambuda Bar is the most popular place and on busy nights Brew Moon will probably be busy too. On slow nights, it may be very boring at places like Brew Moon and Dejavu.
