Málaga has an amazing nightlife scene, not only because of its bars and venues but also because it’s so connected to the rest of Andalucia. This city attracts an even mix of tourists and Spanish residents who want sleepless nights that end in sea and sunshine.
In typical Andalusian style, nights in Málaga start at 10 with tapas, beer and shots. People then move from terrace to terrace and from beer to cocktails, before heading to the clubs, which open at about 1am. A good night in Málaga is about the movement. You bar-hop until you club-hop until you swim, and then you go home.
Theatro also does live performances, but its offering is more about cabaret than rock. It’s a great place to go if you want a different night out in Málaga. Watch burlesque shows while sipping good cocktails, followed by dancing until 4am. Theatro is also open in the early evening for poetry, flamenco and kitsch movie screenings. Get here by going to Calle Convalecientes, near Velvet.
Bubbles Lounge Club has a more relaxed atmosphere than other clubs in Málaga. It still plays live music, stays open until 4am and loves reggaeton. The cocktails, which can be enjoyed in the comfortable booths, are affordable. Find the bar on Calle Mártires, at the bottom of Calle Convalecientes.
