How to enjoy nightlife in Torremolinos, Spain

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Torremolinos is just 7 km west of the better known Málaga and now is almost considered a suburb of Málaga. Formerly a sleepy fishing village, the place still retains traces of this past, with several of the original fish bars located right in the shopping center, right alongside select boutiques and gift shops.

Disco Party

If you are here for some undiluted fun, the night-time is when this city wakes up – to party! So if you are the early to rise, early to bed sort, you may be in the wrong place.

The best way to kick off some serious merriment is on a full stomach. So make sure you fill up on some tapas in one of the Spanish bars in Calle San Miguel. La Bodega in San Miguel is a very popular hang-out and more so for the variety of delicious, cheap tapas. Bar Central in Plaza Andalucia serves up cocktails and snacks on the French-style covered terrace. If you are not in the mood for tapas and want something substantial, like a full meal, Torremolinos has more than 250 restaurants with cuisine that includes Chinese, Italian and seafood.

Some of the best times in Torremolinos are found in its nightclubs and discos. Among them, definitely the king of discos is the Fun Beach in Avenida Palma de Mallorca. Being the biggest disco in town, and supposedly also the biggest in Europe, it has several dance floors and a swimming pool. Even more enticing perhaps – the waiting staff are all dressed in swimsuits! Some of the other discos that head the popularity charts are, the Palladium disco, which also has a swimming pool, dazzling strobes and manic DJs who’ll keep you very well entertained till closing time at 6 am and Oscar’s, a disco bar which attracts a somewhat older crowd.

If you are looking for one- stop-fun, you must check out what’s on offer at the Hotel Torrequebrada in the nearby resort of Benalmadena. A casino with 15 gaming tables, a 4am closing time, a choice of five restaurants and international cabaret and flamenco shows are the main highlights of this place.

Smaller, but none the less flamboyant flamenco shows can also be enjoyed in La Bodega, San Miguel and at the Taberna Flamenca Pepe Lopez on Plaza de la Gamba Alegre. The performers here are from Seville and Granada and host nightly shows from April to October.

Torremolinos is therefore definitely on the map as far as Mediterranean hotspots go. You should go there and see for yourself!

    I would like to comment on nightlife part of the article.
    Torremolinos itself has almost entirely gay-oriented nightlife: there are more than 30 gay and lesbian bars and clubs, all of them concentrated in the compact gay village: Nogalera area, right in front of the train station of Torremolinos.
    The best places to visit as of spring 2010 are:
    El Gato Lounge – the first place to go out at night, open from 7p.m., then Parthenon Club in Nogalera, and finally big nightclubs like Passion open from 2 or even 3 a.m.
    For the rest: if you are gay and you love party, then Torremolinos is the place to be.
