Best Bars, Clubs and Nightlife in Malaga Spain

Bars, Clubs, and Nightlife

Literally hundreds of bars to choose from in Malaga. Rivalling any of its ‘big city’ counterparts, Málaga has become one of the hippest night spots in all of Spain. A variety of venues cater to all tastes, ranging from Spanish bars, to clubs spinning dance, techno, and house beats, with a number of hip-hop and reggae meccas and a vibrant gay scene. People are slowly catching on to all the city has to offer after hours.

El Pimpi

El Pimpi is probably the most famous bar in Malaga, an emblem of the city filled with wine barrels autographed by people that you and I don’t know (apart from Antonio Banderas). The highlight of El Pimpi would be the Moscatel wine, which is made on the premises and is considered an unofficial icon of Malaga. It can be bought in a small, medium or large bottles. The thing I like most about El Pimpi is the decor – it’s a large, comfortable building, and the walls are covered with big antique bullfighting and flamenco posters.

Ctra de Almeria, 13

 

La Tortuga

Situated on the waterfront at Pedregalejo, La Tortuga runs as a café by day and a lively cocktail bar by night. The spacious straw-roofed terrace is a major attraction, and its perfect for a sunny winter afternoon or a hot summer’s night. The bar itself is made from tree trunks and the decor is quirky. La Tortuga mainly attracts people in their 20s and 30s and is especially popular with foreign students. The music is varied, but is mostly Spanish disco and pop.

El Jardin

Dripping with elegance on a leafy corner near the cathedral and the Picasso museum, this place is great for people watching and light healthy fare with the added perk of regular live music, including skirt-swirling Latino beats on Thursday nights.

As its name would suggest, the bar is surrounded by some of the city’s most beautiful gardens, and enjoys a stunning location. Built in 1887, the building that houses El Jardin is a perfect example of the city’s architecture.

Calle Cañon, 1

 

Liceo

This place attracts a local student crowd with its thumping music and fevered atmosphere. Set in a grand old mansion with several rooms and vibes to match your mood, this is alternative clubbing at its best.

Comprising of two floors with a reception area and bar at the entrance and two bedrooms with additional bars on the ground floor. The staircase leads to a mezzanine level where you can watch the action down below, and several bars leading off the main floor. The music is usually loud house and this is not a place for the faint-hearted. Original floors and decor add to the intrigue of this club.

Calle Beatas, 21

 

Sala Wengé

Sala Wengé is situated in the historical quarter of Malaga city, on Calle Santa Lucia, and is open on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10pm till 7am. Playing mainly house music with guest DJ´s and party nights, Sala Wengé is a great venue for serious music lovers, and is one of the biggest clubs in Malaga.

Different sessions and events are held here throughout the year, and the bar attracts music fans from all over the Costa del Sol.

Siempre Así

Siempre Asi offers low lighting and plenty of space for a shimmy on the dance floor. The main music vibe here is Latino with rumba, salsa, and rock also on the menu. A lively bar which attracts a mixed crowd. Popular with lovers of South American dance music and attracts all sorts of visitors from all over the Costa del Sol.
