Rocking Night Life At Lanzarote

July 31, 2012 | By | Reply More

Lanzarote has a reputation as the quiet Canary Island, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer ample opportunities to party. The liveliest areas for nightlife in Lanzarote are the island’s capital, Arrecife and the resort of Puerto del Carmen, particularly on the Avenida de las Playas, a street that seems to never sleep.

In Playa Blanca you will find the cosmopolitan Marina Rubicón, which has several stylish bars and exclusive restaurants for those seeking a more discerning type of nightlife and entertainment. This stylish harbour is lined with glamorous yachts and attracts an elegant clientele who are looking for fine-dining bistros and sophisticated bars to relax and have fun.


Costa Teguise has a good selection of restaurants, bars and pubs, although it is much quieter than its neighbour Puerto del Carmen with a more family-feel to the place. It however is the hub for surfing, water sports and other sporting activities at Lanzarote. You will thus find all kindly of sports channels running on different TV screens in several bars and many others, which offer live music or other forms of family entertainment. Almost throughput the night you will find the Bars open with live or Television channels on big television screens. Particularly popular is the beach front at Costa Teguise.

Try the vast array of pubs for great entertainment and restaurants for all types of cuisine from around the world, including Mexican, French, Indian, Chinese and Thai food.


Puerto del Carmen has a lot to offer. Hotel bar prices can also be expensive so venture out and try the local bars. Also try the popular ´squares´ which are the places to be for atmosphere and reasonable prices. Try the Owl & Pussycat Inn for a quiz and a warm friendly home from home get together. The Big Apple club and bar, just a few streets away on Centro Comercial Atlántico, is also a good bet for dancing and drinks starting at 8 PM and continuing late into the night. The DJs here are excellent, but if it’s live music you seek, try Roof Tops, a disco bar that hosts a local band every Friday night. Most resorts in Lanzarote have their own bars and dance floors, and while hitting up the hotel for drinks may seem antisocial, it is actually the best way to meet other adventurous travellers from around the world. If you truly are looking to be the only tourist in a room full of Spaniards, consider asking a native to suggest a club in Arrecife, the capital city. This is where most locals go at night. Early evening is a time for wining and dining at any of the island’s fabulous bars, cafes or restaurants. But the bar activities don’t really start to kick in quite a bit later in the evening – so be sure to take it easy! Lanzarote’s evening entertainment choices are as diverse as could be, so you will be sure to find something to please you. And the good thing is – the entertainment is usually free.

A word of advice: “Nightclub” in Spanish means brothel, so if you’re looking for a club, say “discoteca”!
