Tio Vivo means ‘carousel’ in Spanish, so it’s no surprise to find that this colourful cafe bar is decked out like a funfair, complete with wooden horses on the bar. There’s a fun atmosphere to go with the decor, and a full programme of live music, plus theatre and comedy in Spanish and English.
A popular place for coffee or lunch during the day, by night Cafe Corrillo transforms into a lively night spot. Jazz concerts and art exhibitions attract a mixed crowd of students, artists, locals and tourists. The central location and late opening hours make this one of the best places in town to stay out until the small hours.
One of the city’s most famous nightlife venues, Cafe Moderno is legendary in Salamanca for its unconventional vibe and great entertainment. It has its own arts programme, hosting all kinds of unique events and original live-music performances. The crowd is young and international, and the party goes on late into the night.
