Best Party Areas in Granada
There are three main party districts in Granada where you can dance the night out. All of them have more or less the same types of bars and clubs, with both traditional and international music.
Party in City Centre
Heart of the city is always a good choice when it comes to nightlife. This area is definitely the most famous one, especially among tourists. Although the prices can be a bit higher compared to other districts, there are plenty of great bars and clubs open 7 days a week.
If you can’t decide whether to go to a bar or club, try with El Son. The place is a cool combination of both, and one of the favourite spots of students and young travellers. For more of underground clubbing experience, Plantabaja is hosting live music and great bands on weekends.
Party El Albaícin
Right next to the City Centre there is another vibrant area called El Albaícin. The are has more-less the same vibes as the city centre, with more great tapas bars and disco clubs.
Café Bar Higuera has one of the most beautiful outdoor seating areas where you can chill and chat with your fellow travellers, while drinking the best beer in the city.
Party El Realejo
An awesome mixture of great Spanish style and Irish bars. With a bit more relaxed vibes, the area offers a welcoming atmosphere and high-quality local food and drinks.
If you are a wine lover, check out the fantastic Casa Lopez Correa restaurant and bar. Paddy’s Pub is more of a regular pub, just a few steps from Casa Lopez Correa. With daily sports broadcasts, amazing food and even better beer, the pub famous among both locals and foreigners.
Dress codes & age restrictions
Spanish people like to wear trendy and stylish outfits for nights out. Odd colours are very popular, especially among young people. Although you can wear whatever makes you feel good, keep up with at least a smart casual look if you are planning to visit some of the local nightclubs.
As in the rest of Spain, the minimum age for drinking alcohol in Granada is 18 years. The same rule applies if you want to enter the nightclub. However, there are some places which are more rigid, and with the age restriction of 21 and above.
