Caliente Estepona – the nightlife of an ancient Spanish Pueblo
Estepona is located in the south of the Costa del Sol and in recent years has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in Andalucia. Tourist accommodation of all types, excellent facilities and of course the wonderful beaches, make Estepona so attractive: for a truly amazing holiday.
For lovers of culture Estepona offers plenty of interesting attractions: buildings and museums that recall the styles of the various populations that have left their marks on the city, as the Romans, Phoenicians and Arabs. Witnesses of these periods are the buildings and the many squares or the ever-present Flamenco.
In addition to numerous folk festivals, especially during the summer – as the San Juan fiesta On June 23rd and the Summer Fair in July – Estepona is very attractive especially for its nightlife.
The atmosphere in this city is quite international, for the presence of many foreign residents. This is why the people who hang out at night are so appealing and this makes very enjoyable every night out.
The town’s nightlife is mainly concentrated within the back streets of the old town and in the port area. The numerous bars with music in the town centre are generally less expensive, as they are away from touristy areas. This is a great area to enjoy something different, including more than one unique bars, with names such as Bar Caleu or Tolone, both on Calle Real, La Bulla in Avenida España, Bar 97 in Calle Caridad. Other charming bars open late in the historical centre include Melodie Cool in Calle Real, popular among trendy young people who wish to “warm up” before heading to the discos in the area.
The port is about 15 minutes walk away from the centre, but once you get there you will find everything for your best night ever! The port is a great cluster of bars, lounges, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, restaurants and nightclubs. Fun goes on from around 8pm until morning after. Renaldo’s, at the entrance to the marina, is one of the most popular venues, favored by Spanish and foreign tourists as well. Several bars propose karaoke evenings, such as the Christopher Columbus. Moreover, Chico Diez and XL pubs are two of the most ‘happening’ places to be in this area, perfect for the young.
Among the most popular discos in Estepona, we report the Milonga and the Niágara, on Avenida Juan Carlos – famous for its House and Techno music, while for Country and Western music or line dancing, you can choose Sharky’s Beach Shack, right on the seafront.
The nice thing of Estepona is that here you can find anything you want, with nothing to envy to the most exciting cities in Spain, from plenty of delightful restaurants to charming clubs open until late at night. But just around the corner, entering the narrow secondary streets, you find yourself in a completely different world, where you can still feel the magic of the ancient Spanish pueblo and where in the street it seems unbelievable that modern cars can move!
