Fuengirola Nightlife

Whether you're into hip hop, pop, rock or flamenco you'll find plenty to entertain you in Fuengirola after the sun goes down. In fact during the summer months the resort's nightlife is positively manic. Try to fit in a siesta because the partying here starts late and keeps going till dawn!

Most of the action is centred around the marina and the seafront promenade so this is a good place to rendezvous with friends for a sundowner.

The London Pub is at the beachfront and is one of the best known bars in town. It's an English style pub with a big outdoor terrace inside you can enjoy the latest dance music with the resident DJ.

Nearby is the popular Beetle Bar complete with DJ housed inside a Beetle car!

The Irish Times Irish pub is a favourite haunt, especially for those who like their Guinness on tap. Sports fans who can't bear to miss a match while they're on holiday head for Linekar's Bar near the port. This 200 seater bar is one of the biggest in town and is popular with foreigners because of the cheap drinks, good music and 10 TV screens showing all the major sporting events.

Enjoy a leisurely meal in one of many excellent restaurants which line the seafront because there's no point heading off to the clubs until much before midnight.


At Hollywood Nights in the port you can dine and be entertained by well known acts. Or try Moochers Jazz Café and Restaurant in Calle de la Cruz where you can listen to live music and munch your way through giant pancakes with every imaginable filling.

There's a thriving gay scene in Fuengirola and even more so in the nearby resort of Torremolinos. Bar Kudos in Los Boliches is open seven nights a week and is a good starting point for gays to glean tips on the best bars, beaches and restaurants. Stuart's gay bar near the port has live cabaret every Friday and karaoke on Saturdays.

You'll find nightly karaoke at Zanadu's at Los Boliches and at many of the other bars on and around the seafront. Check the local English language papers and gig guides for details of live entertainment.

There are numerous disco pubs and cocktail bars throughout Fuengirola. The big clubs include the Millenium where you get the latest UK house music, the Funk Club Funk for hip hop and Maxi's Disco, favoured by "oldies" who enjoy rock and roll and 60s and 70s music. Heaven's Gate Disco is the favoured nightspot of the young and trendy foreign visitors.

For more of a family night out, head out to the Tivoli amusement park at Arroyo de la Miel which stays opens till 1am. You can enjoy a meal there and there are regular flamenco performances, wild west shows and hit songs from the big musicals.

Or pop along to Fuengirola zoo to for a fascinating tour of the "moonlight area" where you can watch the nocturnal behaviour of creatures such as leopards, bats and flying foxes.
