Some people consider nightlife in the town of Velez-Malaga as more of spillovers from nearby coastal tourist spots. Indeed, Torre del Mar, which is just about 10 minutes south of this town, is where the the action is. However, Velez-Malaga pubs and bars have their own distinctive brand of nighttime entertainment that's worth checking out.
To keep your nights in this part of the Costa del Sol constantly unpredictable and memorable, we've drawn up a nice selection of Velez-Malaga pubs and bars that you can include in your bar-hopping list.
At the top of our list of Velez-Malaga pubs and bars are these three:
The Old Red Lion - If you want a traditional English pub, head out to Plaza San Francisco, along Calle Poeta Joaquin, near the town market. Here in The Old Red Lion, you can enjoy great beer and other alcoholic beverages over or after a hearty meal.
Bar Guerra - On the other side of the block, along Calle de San Francisco is a half-a-century-old bar known as Bar Guerra. This Andulasian-themed place is well-known for its fried style tapas, but we also recommend their Andulasian battered cod rinsed down your throat with your choice of alcoholic beverage.
Cafe Pub La Lonja - A couple of blocks away from either The Old Red Lion or Bar Guerra (no more than a 5-minute ride), you'll find this cozy cafe and pub where you can enjoy excellent steaming coffee or more alcoholic drinks amidst some good music. If you intend to have a long night, engage your companions in Karaoke, Poker Texas, and other games.
After either getting your fill or just getting warmed up with those three, you may proceed to any of the following liquor oases: Alcala, Los Amigos, El Cofrade, Casa Paqui,El Rocio, Pepe, or Cafe Bar Natali.
A night in Torre del Mar is always a great time to get stuffed in seafood fare.
