Owners Ian and Robert have worked hard to create a genuinely welcoming atmosphere that keeps regular customers coming back time and again, regardless of how many years have passed in between. Karaoke and reasonably-priced drinks round off the appeal of this favourite.

Catch the sun at Oliver's Bar

This inviting watering hole is a relaxed place to watch the world go by with a coffee or a cocktail during the day, and a lively party place where you can make new friends when the sun goes down. Positioned as it is on one of Benidorm’s largest squares, Plaza Constitucion, the spacious terrace is a fantastic spot to people watch while soaking up some of the sun’s rays, before retreating into the intimacy of the snug bar when the temperature drops.

A taste of Hawaiian life at Tiki Beach Bar

Who doesn’t love a cold frothy beer on the beach? If that sounds good to you, swinging by the Tiki Beach Bar is an absolute must during your holiday in Benidorm. One of the few places in the city to retain a party atmosphere throughout the day, it’s a fun place to stop by after a stroll on the sand. The Tiki Beach Bar has everything you’ll need to refresh yourself with a cold one.

Hide away at Secret Fountain Roof Bar Garden

This delightful rooftop bar won’t remain a secret for too long if things keep up! It’s the perfect location for unwinding in the sun with a beer, cocktail or a bite to eat, making it a great place to while away the afternoon. Reasonable prices are complemented by the ever-attentive bar staff, who are endlessly handing out free nibbles to go alongside your drinks. And when the sun goes down, the patio heaters and warm blankets come out. What could be better?

Try something new at The Explorers Club

With a bit of an adventure theme, this atmospheric pub features booths in the guise of railway carriages and all manner of knick-knacks hanging from the walls. Big-screen TVs represent a great opportunity to watch the big match, while the live music and entertainment on offer rivals any of the other top-class establishments found in the city.
