Once seen as a serious and sombre kind of place, Toledo is an increasingly vibrant town and its nightlife just keeps getting better. It may be best known as a day-trip destination from Madrid, but there’s plenty to enjoy if you stay a little longer, including the town’s night-time charms. After watching the famously gorgeous sunset, what could be better than enjoying a night out in the great – and usually inexpensive – tapas bars? Here’s our pick of the best.

1. El Trebol

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish

A modern Spanish bar and brewery with bags of character, Cerveceria Trebol is set over three floors. It’s the perfect place to start the evening early on, before the crowds descend, and enjoy their well-priced tapas and drinks on one of the best outdoor terraces in town – but don’t forget to peek inside at the bar’s coolest feature, a glass floor looking down onto Roman ruins.

2. Cervecería Boni

Bar, Pub, Pub Grub, Spanish

This laid-back local neighbourhood bar is loved for its good-quality beer at reasonable prices. Plus, this is one of the few places in town where all drinks are served with a tapa. The food is so delicious you may find yourself ordering more from the menu and lingering in the fun, relaxed atmosphere.

3. La Malquerida de la Trinidad

Bar, Cocktails

This cool bar is one of the more modern places in Toledo’s centre and makes an interesting change from the typical tapas bars. Despite being so close to the cathedral and other main sights it has a relaxed, neighbourhood atmosphere, friendly service and reasonable prices. A perfect place to stop in for a gin and tonic after a hard day’s sightseeing, but it’s just as good for lunch.

4. La Otra Boveda

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish

A quirky, modern bar with friendly staff and a handful of outdoor tables, the curiously-named La Otra Boveda (meaning ‘the other arch’) is definitely one of the town’s nicest hangouts and makes a relaxed place to meet friends in the town centre.

5. Terraza Bú

Restaurant, Spanish

Enjoy the views from this elegant rooftop bar. Terraza Bú makes an interesting change from the many typical old-school Spanish bars in town with its cosmopolitan vibe. The menu, too, offers a modern take on classic Spanish cuisine. By day you’ll find plenty of day-trippers here soaking up the sun, but in the evening it takes on a much more local vibe.

6. Enebro

Bar, Tapas, Spanish

Another great terrace bar, Enebro is noticeably popular with local students for its great value food and drinks and fun, friendly atmosphere. It gets packed out at weekends, when it becomes one of the liveliest spots in town.
