Seville, the beautiful Andalusian capital, has lots to see and do during the day, but you should always save time to enjoy, at least, one night out in town. The nightlife in Seville is one of the most fun, lively and vibrant in the whole country. The city boasts different areas with totally different atmospheres in which to spend an unforgettable night. One of the things that make this town a great place for going out is the huge variety of venues within every area. You can easily visit four or five completely different bars without walking more than ten minutes between any of them.
A night out in Seville would typically start by tasting some delicious tapas paired with a couple of beers or glasses of wine. Remember, if you want to mix with the locals, do not do it earlier than 21:30. Then is cocktails/quiet drinks time and it is not until 02:00 when the pubs start to get crowded. The night never ends here, so it’s completely normal to come back home around 06:00 or 07:00 am!
The main areas/neighbourhoods to enjoy Seville nightlife are Alfalfa, very popular among students and young people due to the affordable prices and lively atmosphere; Alameda, which has a more alternative scene, with many gay bars and clubs; and Betis street by the river in Triana neighbourhood, which is full of quiet bars and night clubs too.
La Rebotica and Tokyo are two favourites in Alfalfa, while Kafka and Fun Club are two musts in Alameda. Vogart, Boss, Lo Nuestro y Alambique are some of the most popular in Triana area.
Down by the river, you’ll find Paseo de Cristóbal Colón, home to a strip of more sophisticated, modern late bars, perfect to enjoy a drink in Seville. From Friday onwards, this weekend hotspot is extremely popular with locals looking to blow off some steam after a long working week, gin tonic in hand. The two hotspots in the area are MKC or local favorite Boga.
Seville nightlife is not big on clubs and discos, though. There are a few, but in comparison to bars, they are a clear minority. Some of the most famous discos are Uthopia, Bandalai, Dante Music Room, Santos Club, Anthique Theatre and Obbios Club.
During late spring and summer temperatures can still reach 30Cºduring the nights. With this weather, there is no better option than heading to a bar, chic cocktail lounge or rooftop terrace with spectacular Giralda views, to sip a cold drink. Cocktails, craft beer, and vermouth are the most popular choices among the sevillanos. Especially popular here is the locally produced pink gin Puerto de Indias mixed with tonic.
In the summer months, a string of amazing terrace bars and nightclubs open up down the riverside, past the Torre del Oro and onto Paseo de las Delicias. With great music, lively atmosphere and open air surroundings, these are great places to party in Seville while enjoying the light summer breeze after the sun goes down.
Puerto de Cuba, Muelle de Nueva York, Terraza Alfonso or Roof Market Seises are perfect spots to enjoy Seville nightlife during the summer.
Of course, there’s flamenco in Seville. There are many options to enjoy this Andalucia’s vibrant art form, but far too many people are drawn into pricey tourist traps. That’s why it’s so important to know which are the good ones. Los Gallos, T de Triana, Casa del Flamenco, El Patio Sevillano, Auditorio Álvarez Quintero or El Patio Andaluz are some of our favourites.
Independently of your favourite music or party style Seville’s vibrant nightlife is worldwide famous, and for a good reason!
If parting is not your thing, don’t worry, there are other ways to enjoy Seville, like the guided tour around the emblematic Santa Cruz neighbourhood that Oway offers.
A cruise along the Guadalquivir river is another great (and romantic) option.
