Bars, Clubs, and Nightlife
Where to begin? Granada’s nightlife has everything to keep the throngs of international students living here distracted from their studies. Pulsating discos, cool lounges, bars dug out of caves, and a vibrant bohemian viewpoint. This is where all that money saved from free tapas inevitably goes to.
This place closes around 03h, so it cannot really be labelled a ’club,’ but the soulful mix of reggae, funk, and hip-hop makes this place a must-visit. Small with a very nice, come-as-you-are atmosphere, they have hip-hop parties on Tuesday night and Reggae on Wednesday.
Calle Almona Boquerón, 10
Small bar where they play salsa, reggae, and more. The place opens late and people really don’t fill it up until 0h30 or 01h. If you get there a little early, the table football can keep you entertained while you start off with drinks. Check the many posters on the wall promoting live shows in the Elvira area for something happening while you’re in town.
Calle Naranjos, 2
This is the biggest club in Granada, and just two minutes from Oasis, in the Albaizín. Within the super posh interior, like something out of The Great Gatsby, you’ll find an attractive crowd gyrating to popular contemporary music as well as some techno, R&B, and Reggae. Wednesday is Ladies’ Night, and the farer sex will have free entrance as well as an open bar until midnight.
Calle de Carcel Baja, 10
Can’t stress it enough – this place is amazing. Located in Sacramonte, with incredible panoramic views of the Alhambra from its terrace and garden on the top floor just outside the dance floor. For the normal entrance fee of 4€, you’ll have access to all the dance floors and a free drink from any of the bars. Head downstairs where a myriad of caves and dance floors are waiting to be plundered. Vale Music, a popular record label in Spain, has entrusted your DJ, Jose, to provide you with an array of danceable beats, covering all genres.
Camino Sacromonte, 47
This popular club has three dance floors, each one with a different feel. Music ranges from disco, to reggae, electronic beats, and more. Very fashionable among students and young locals.
This decidedly bohemian locale is a great alternative venue that hosts live music, DJ’s, exhibitions, and film presentations. With a relaxed atmosphere, it’s a great place just to chill with friends over great drinks and danceable music – mostly rock, reggae, and ska.
Plaza de San Agustín, 2
Open Sunday to Thursday 21h - 03h / Fridays and Saturdays 22h - 04h
