When night falls, Lanzarote comes alive with a different mix of nightlife depending where you are on the island. One thing is for sure: you are guaranteed to have fun!
The south coast is bustling with all the nightlife action! Puerto del Carmen has several lively lounge and cocktail style bars and nightclubs, especially around Avenida de las Playas where the party continues late into the night. There is also a casino here if you want to try your luck on one of the gaming tables or roulette wheels. Close to the harbour area, you will find even more bars and restaurants to keep you entertained until early morning. Maybe you would like to stay in a luxury 4-star hotel at very special prices in this vibrant area? If so, Spain-Lanzarote recommends staying at the Vik Hotel San Antonio, on the beachfront, with excellent facilities and sumptuous rooms.
In Playa Blanca you will find the cosmopolitan Marina Rubicón, which has several stylish bars and exclusive restaurants for those seeking a more discerning type of nightlife and entertainment. This stylish harbour is lined with glamorous yachts and attracts an elegant clientele who are looking for fine-dining bistros and sophisticated bars to relax and have fun. A major attraction here is Lanzarote’s Café Del Mar, a well-known trendy chill-out bar which has venues throughout Spain. Funky music, fantastic views and a very cool ambience is promised.
Located close to this hive of activity is the 5-star Hotel Volcán Lanzarote, offering the best possible accommodations and the sort of luxury that will make you feel very special indeed. The prices are great too!
Also in the south is the 4-star Sandos Papagayo Arena Hotel, close to the centre of the Playa Blanca resort, which has many lively bars, fine restaurants and entertainment venues for you to enjoy a great night out. And if you are looking for top quality 5-star luxury at a very reasonable price in this area, check out the Princesa Yaiza Suite Hotel Resort, positioned overlooking a beautiful white sandy beach and the enticing ocean.
Arrecife is a must-visit if you want to get to know local people’s preferences when it comes to nightlife. It is thriving with nice bars where you can have a good time in the company of people of all ages and enjoy music of all types.
Costa Teguise has a good selection of restaurants, bars and pubs, although it is much quieter than its neighbour Puerto del Carmen with a more family-feel to the place. You will find sport showing in several bars and many others, which offer cabaret or family entertainment. In this resort, we suggest the 4-star Hotel Grand Teguise Playa Resort, which has great deals on superb accommodations close to several sandy beaches.
The north of the island is not so much geared towards bustling nightlife, although of course there are plenty of fantastic restaurants serving cuisine from around the world. If you are looking for a truly unique experience, visit the famous caves of Jameos del Agua, which transform into an unusual underground disco every week.
As far as opening hours are concerned, bars tend to stay open all day every day, while discos and nightclubs usually open around 23.00 hrs and close when the last person has left (usually around 5.00 or 6.00 hrs).
All action starts after midnight so it is wise to have a nap before fully enjoying Lanzarote’s nightlife!
