Night clubs, bohemian culture, disco, party in Spain

Only Spain could be home to the epic clubs of Almeria and the endless nights of Granada. There are high-energy bars and clubs all over the country, but especially in the Granada capital and on the Almeria coast. Spain has perfected the beach club, mastered the warehouse club, and satisfied the hungriest of techno enthusiasts with its world-class DJs. If you want to party, Spain is the place.

Partying Spanish Style

Most tourists from all over find that Spain's nightlife is fairly easy to navigate. Unlike Paris, Los Angeles or New York, where the best clubs are hidden from newcomers, Spain has an open and accepting club culture. Especially in vacation towns such as Almeria, dance clubs and bars are all easy to find by casually chatting with the locals.

The nightlife timetable in Spain will throw even the most nocturnal tourists for a loop. Nobody seems to go out or come home at any sort of reasonable hour. Leaving for a club at 1:30 a.m. and coming home at 5:00 is simply the norm, and visitors are expected to adjust or miss all the fun. Everything is shifted so late because of Spain's meal schedule, with lunch in the late afternoon and dinner delayed until 21 or 22:30 h. Naturally, after eating such a late dinner and enjoying some fine Spanish sherry, people don't make it out on the town until well after midnight. The quickest way to adapt to Spain time will be to adopt the Spanish tradition of a midday siesta. A little nap will extend your bedtime well into the morning.
