A guide to nightlife in San Pedro

San Pedro nightlife reflects the nature of the town itself – relaxed and casual. While being on the quieter side compared to its loud neighbouring holiday resorts in Costa del Sol, San Pedro still has enough bars, pubs and restaurants to keep you toasting the Spanish way of life every night of your stay. If you’re looking for a big night out during your stay, take a trip to Puerto Banus or Marbella where you’ll find more bars and discos. But there’s plenty to keep you in San Pedro after sundown if you want a quieter night.

Creative craft at Pub Charles

If it’s a good bar you’re on the lookout for, make sure you visit Pub Charles. Open every night of the week until 4:30am, this place offers drinks and cocktails aplenty. In fact, if the cocktail you’re after isn’t on the menu, the bartenders will mix it specially for you.

Let loose at Franky's Piano Bar Discoteca

Franky’s Piano Bar Discoteca is a great place to grab a drink and have a dance in the Costa del Sol. Here you can soak up the ambience and decor of the place, while enjoying excellent service from the friendly and professional English-speaking staff.

Sports and shorts at The Bar Olive Tree

This is the place to have fun. With a great selection of wines, cocktails and beers, The Bar Olive Tree gets lively at night. It’s also a nice place in the day to enjoy the easy-going atmosphere typical of San Pedro. If you’re a football fan, The Bar Olive Tree shows many of the major games from all over Europe.

A simple affair at Pub Trasluz

This no-fuss pub is the ideal spot for an ice-cold pint. The owner and staff are all very welcoming so you’ll feel right at home. They also offer some of the best hamburgers in town if you want a bite with your drink.

Home feeling at Joey's Emerald

Probably the most notorious of all the Irish bars in San Pedro is Joey’s Emerald. This tried and tested establishment is sure to deliver a great night. You’ll be made to feel welcome by the hilarious Joey and, as you might expect, the Guinness here is the best around. Joey’s offers great drinks deals, a pool table and thorough sports coverage, all with great service, so even with a late deal to Costa del Sol, you don’t have to miss the football.

It's not all about food at Taco Loco

This upmarket cocktail bar offers both bespoke and classic cocktails. In fact, it even has its own resident mixologist, as well as a lovely range of fine wines and craft beers. At Taco Loco, you can enjoy one of the most extensive cocktail menus in the San Pedro area. This is the perfect place to unwind or celebrate. As the name suggests, homemade tacos are available, as well as nachos and other fun snack foods.

Just relax at Cafe Bar Kortijo

This café/bar is the ideal spot for a relaxing drink in the evening. They even have a happy hour, so be sure to get there between 6.00pm and 9.00pm for the best drinks deals. The chilled-out music that plays here makes it a great place to unwind.

Sip and snack at El Candil de San Pedro

Get down to El Candil de San Pedro for that typical Andalucían experience and enjoy the great service you deserve from welcoming hosts, Alfonso and Carmen. El Candil de San Pedro offers a true Spanish atmosphere with a truly great tapas and drink selection. Try some of the Iberian ham from the local area, grab a glass of wine and some homemade bread and revel in the good company.
