A guide to nightlife in Estepona

Estepona has plenty of Spanish character and this is reflected in much of its vibrant nightlife. Although it’s not as lively as Fuengirola or Marbella, Estepona does have its fair share of nightclubs tempting those who like to boogie. Clubbing here is also cheaper than its nearby cousins, making this the ideal place to find late holiday deals to Costa del Sol. More common though, are the Spanish bars and late night cafes offering live music and drinks at great prices. Here are some of the top places to check out in both the old town and the marina.

Sample the flavours of Tolone

Even if you’re staying in one of Costa del Sol’s All Inclusive hotels, be sure to start your evening in Tolone, a day-to-night cafe located at the very end of Calle Real. They specialise in fancy coffees, teas and milkshakes, but it’s the cocktails you really want to sample at this place.

Get involved at Bar Caleu

A three-storey Spanish bar in the old town only gets going after 10pm. Filled with tourists and locals, it’s the place to be on a Saturday night.

Emerald feeling at O'Donaghue's Irish Pub

One of the bigger bars in the port, this Irish pub stays open until 5am. They do an English and Spanish speaking quiz every Wednesday and host live music on most Thursday nights.

Chill out at Scala Bar

If it all gets too much, head to Scala Bar. Tucked away on Torre de Control they have plenty of seating and a more relaxed vibe, making it a good spot for a low-key evening.

Ladies' nights at Mahiky Cocktail Bar

Imaginative cocktails, a seafront location and a classy atmosphere – need we say more? Mahiky is a great spot to go with the girls as it’s a renowned favourite starting point for hen parties.

Get your groove on at Le Pepe

A bar that doubles up as a disco, Le Pepe has a massive dance floor so you’ll have plenty of room to pull some shapes. This venue has a modern terrace, which is the perfect spot for sipping cool drinks on a warm summer night.

Authentically Spanish at Reinaldo's

If you want to experience a Spanish night out away from the old town, head to Reinaldo´s. Serving tapas by day and drinks by night, this lively bar doesn’t have a dance floor as such, but that doesn’t stop people jiggling their hips. And with the music being as tempting as their Happy Hour, it’s hard to resist.

The Spanish flair is hard to miss at El Duende, a trendy Flamenco bar and nightclub. Take a seat outside on the terraces where ice cold drinks are served. Olé!

So good they named it twice: Louie Louie

This rock bar regularly hosts touring rock, metal and blues bands from Spain and beyond. It’s a cosy but cool live music venue that offers something a little different to rest of Estepona.

Glitz and glam at Club Mosaic

For serious clubbing, get your glad rags on and head to Club Mosaic on Avenida Juan Carlos. It opened in 2015 with the intention of putting Estepona’s nightlife on a similar playing field to neighbouring Puerto Banus. With a classy dress code, funky beats and a shiny new interior, this club attracts a large crowd of those who are looking to dance to beats until the early hours.
