If you want to make as much of the resort nightlife as you do of the hours of sunshine this summer, then look no further than a holiday to Tenerife. Whether you’re looking to party until the early hours, or have a chilled evening soaking up the local culture, Tenerife is the place to go.
Banana Garden, Playa de Las Americas
If exotic cuisine served in a luxurious environment sounds like your kind of night, then this restaurant could be your new favourite night out in Tenerife. The atmosphere here is always electric and you can enjoy cocktails on the terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with live music in the background.
Magic Bar, Playa de Las Americas
A cross between an Indian palace and a lavish Moroccan hangout, the Magic Bar has a luxurious atmosphere. The prices are slightly higher here than in other bars, but the surroundings make up for it. This is the place to be seen in Playa de Las Americas where you can remain aloof in the dimmed lighting and cosy corners.
Where to Stay
The Hotel Dream Noelia Sur is a four star haven, just 500m from the beach and within easy walking distance of the town. This hotel is perfectly placed for you to enjoy the nightlife of Playa de Las Americas, whilst at the same time, being just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to mean that you can have a quiet night in if you want to.
Tramps, Playa de Las Americas
‘Tramps’ is the ultimate super-club in Tenerife, made up of three separate themed rooms: Tramps, Notorious B.A.R and CoCo Bongo. Live DJ’s, themed nights and summer festival parties make Tramps the best place to go for a night out in the south of Tenerife.
Linekers Bar, Playa de Las Americas
Linekers has a large and lively bar serving cocktails, an expansive terrace outside to relax on warm evenings, a fully equipped games room, and a large central bar where popular DJ’s play the nights away on stage. This bar is a sports lover’s dream come true – 26 screens dotted around the walls show every international sporting match you can think of, and the friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere make this a great place to hang out.
Where to Stay
The Agua Mar Apartments are just down the road from Playa de Las Americas in the traditional fishing village of Los Cristianos. By staying here you get the best of both worlds, with some of the best beaches on the island for sunbathing in the day right next door, and a short five minute taxi ride to all the best nightlife on the island. Taxis will cost around €6 each way.
The Noria District in Santa Cruz, the island’s capital is the centre of all things late night and Spanish. Although most of the nightlife in the south of the island is focused around tourism and is centred in Playa de Las Americas, the nightlife in the capital has an altogether more traditional feel and is where you will find more of the locals.
A Suadade, Santa Cruz de Tenerife
This is the biggest club in the Canary Islands and is found in the Buenos Aires quarter of Santa Cruz. It has two large rooms, two terraces with an electric atmosphere, seven bars, a huge stage and a capacity of up to 1200 people. Only open on Fridays and Saturdays, this is where the locals come to let their hair down. Open until 5.30am when the lights come, on you can then head to the beach to watch the sun rise after a long night of partying.
El Torito, Costa Adeje
If you’re looking for a great meal, then El Torito in Costa Adeje offers some of the best authentic Spanish cuisine on the island. The décor features bullfighting memorabilia and beamed ceilings, adding to the traditional feel of the restaurant. There is an open kitchen so you can see the fresh tapas and seafood being prepared in front of you.
Where to Stay
The Costa Adeje Gran Hotel has fantastic views of the coast and is a 10 minute walk away from the centre of the resort. The resort is also home to one of the most popular hangouts, the Faro Chill Art Bar. This stylish bar has a gorgeous terrace with large comfy sofas and stunning views.
