Playa de las Americas
The be all and end all to nightlife in Tenerife, we guarantee that you’ll spend at least one night of the weekend in Play de las Americas. The strip, known as ‘Veronicas Strip’ seems to be hand-crafted with big groups of party-goers in mind. If you can get from one end of this strip to the other in one night, you deserve a medal! There’s promoters pulling you in, bright lights and super cheap alcohol to create one epic last night of freedom. On one end of the strip you have the holy trinity of a classic night out – Yates, Linekers and the iconic Tramps nightclub. Known as the king of the clubs, you’ll be looked after in this popular venue that’s open all week until the early hours.
As you make your way down the strip you’ll be shocked by the amount of bars and clubs on offer on this little Cannery island. For bars, there’s plenty to choose from depending on what you like – although most are lively and loud so prepare yourself! Coco Beach is on the more chilled out side of nightlife, but still packs a punch. It’s a great place to start your celebrations before moving on to somewhere like the classic Branigans Irish Pub! This longstanding Irish tavern is always popular with parties visiting Tenerife, and you could enjoy a full night here as it’s open until 3am.
The strip acts as a hub of nightlife altogether, but there’s a few bars that might stand out from the crowd for two things – cheap drinks and booming music. The Sound of Cream is a great shout to get a few drinks under your belts. Likewise, Jumping Jacks is awesome for drink deals and chart music from 8pm until it starts getting light outside.
On the opposite end of the island to Playa de las Americas on the North East tip you’ll find La Laguna. The nightlife here is, for the most part, a lot more relaxed than the former area mentioned. Don’t get it wrong, you’ll still find plenty of atmosphere, vibrant bars and strong drinks to toast to the groom to be! The main hub of bars and pubs can be found down Calle Dr. Antonio Gonzalez, and that’s where you’ll find Pub La Orchila. This cheeky little microbrewery is the perfect place for locally brewed beers, friendly locals and even a little dance floor if you want to throw some shapes.
Just down the road from Pub La Orchila you’ll find Strasse La Laguna bar, officially known as a piano bar! However, you won’t find jazz music and chilled vibes here. Strasse is home to shisha and pub quizzes, plus tasty drinks for low prices so you can keep them coming all night long. If you’re a group of guys that prefer a pub vibe, La Laguna is littered with tavernas to take your pick. Two of notable mention are Pub Dark Light and Pub Haring, both extremely popular with locals but still warm, friendly and inviting for groups like yourselves.
La Laguna isn’t all taverns and pubs lads! If you want to dance until the early hours of the morning there’s a couple of clubs to dip your feet into as well. Probably the most popular for tourists in the area is Buho Club. This venue is technically a bar size with a club appearance, and also hosts live music all year round to accompany your celebrations.
Beach Clubs in Tenerife
If you’re going to an island in Spain, it’s likely you’ll find yourself drawn to the beach! Why not combine your nightlife experiences with the sandy beaches of Tenerife? Focusing on the bustling region of Playa de las Americas, there’s numerous beach clubs that line the coast to consider. From chilled and sophisticated to all-out party venues and everything in between, make sure you check out a few before settling on your favourite.
We couldn’t write a nightlife section without mentioning the infamous Papagayo Beach Club located at the end of the strip. This modern club oozes class and sophistication but has a different side to it after dark. Lounger around on the beach beds, day chairs or exclusive day pots upstairs by day, and watch Papagayo come alive at night and turn into the hottest nightclub on the strip! For something outside your normal rings, might we suggest you check out the monster Monkey beach club at night? On every single Sunday in the summer each year, this ever-popular club comes alive with DJ sets and events that will make your stag weekend one to remember.
