Whatever your way of enjoying the night, there is no doubt that you will have a great time in Malaga. Here are the best plans. 

Malaga’s clubs and discos

If you want to party in the Andalusian city, you should know that the party starts later at midnight. And prepare your body for the party, because you may be going home until dawn. Take advantage and stop to have breakfast in any bar. 

Discoteca Andén 

We couldn’t start this list of Malaga nightclubs without the Andén nightclub. It’s one of the famous ones. It has two rooms, four bars and six reserved. And it’s right in the centre of Malaga.

Sala Gold

This club has a very select atmosphere, and also has several rooms. The best thing about the Sala Gold is that every night they prepare a theme party. It’s the ideal plan if you’re looking for a place with glamour.

Goe’s Club

This disco opens before typical party times to give salsa classes before it opens to the public. They also organize live performances with emerging groups from both the city and the country that are included in the style of music they offer. 


This is the ideal time to go out dancing with people with twenty year old. Here you will enjoy a fun and different night, as this room offers shows and performances so that you always have a good excuse to come here again.

The Atlantic disco may be one of the most international in Malaga. Every Friday they organize parties for the Erasmus students who are at the University of Malaga. It is a place that usually has a university atmosphere. 


It is perhaps the most different discotheque in Malaga. The interior is a real theatre with an old stage where every night there are different shows. The main theme is cabaret, so burlesque performances are its speciality. Although there are also nights of flamenco, jazz, etc. In addition, monologues, poets, and films have also been shown on this stage.

Pub areas 

In Malaga there are also walking areas but a little quieter than the hustle and bustle of the discos. As the beach is in the same city, it is very typical in summer to go out after dinner to the trendy chiringuitos to enjoy the night with a drink.

Plaza Mitjana

In this area of Malaga you will find a wide variety of pubs to choose from. Most of them are places that offer drinks at a good price, but they always keep an ace up their sleeve; if you ask them, they surely have offers to offer you. 

Plaza Uncibay 

It’s the quintessential walking zone. The difference with the plaza Mitjana is that the locals are not next to each other. But you won’t have to walk far to get to them. The atmosphere of this area extends all the way to the cathedral and its surroundings. Come here! You’ll love it!

La Malagueta 

And if you prefer a more youthful atmosphere, La Malagueta is your area to get out and about. Besides, thanks to its surrounding bars, you won’t have to go far if you want to have dinner and then have a drink. Nowadays, it’s the most fashionable place, mainly frequented by university students. 

Chill out terraces

We must not forget the wonderful moments that are offered by the afternoons and nights of earth in summer. The terraces are ideal places for romantic evenings, meetings with friends,… without a doubt they are encounters not to be forgotten.
