Up for a mad one in Benalmadena?! When the time arrives for your group night out, Benalmadena nightlife won’t disappoint! But where are the hottest places in town? Let the Spain Event enlighten you…
This is an Irish bar by name, but don’t expect to be sat quietly at the bar supping a quiet Guinness. Located in 24-Hour Square, Molly’s is definitely a place designed for stag and hen revelry. Like all places, in Plaza Solimar, make sure you bargain with the PR people for the best drinks deals, and ask them to seat you upstairs where you can have your own party space.
Mombassa, in case you didn’t know, is the old colonial capital of Kenya, which might well explain why this place is covered in zebra stripes, pictures of red-coat soldiers and antique African anomalies. It might not sound like your average bar décor, but it makes for a pretty impressive interior. Being located right beside the Marina, Mombasa is pretty iconic within Benalmadena, and makes for a fine place to down that first G&T of the afternoon. If you need a bar where you can play pool, watch the Premiership AND have your photo taken beside a Rhinoceros, Mombasa is the one!
What stag or hen do would be complete without a bit of Karaoke? A jewel on the Benalmadena Nightlife scene. CJ’s is the best place in town for some sing-your-heart-out fun with an entire stage area to help you get into the mood. Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be…
This fine-looking bar has something of a split personality. By day you can happily sit drinking coffee and snacking on the terrace while admiring the beautiful Marina views. However, by night Kaleido converts into a funky, sexy and full-on nightspot, with local DJ’s making sure that every last soul is shaking their booty.
If day after day of gorgeous sunshine is getting a bit much for you (!) then why not cool off in Benalmadena’s very own Ice Bar. Unless you’re from Scotland then you’ll appreciate the furry jacket that they give you on entry. Then it’s a matter of, er, chilling out and rattling a cocktail or two down your neck. Daring, different and definitely good fun.
Located in the mythical Plaza Solimar, Kiu nightclub is a four-room behemoth which will give you everything you want for Benalmadena Nightlife, and more. The main room sounds are House, Dubstep and Electro, but wander around and you’ll find three other awesome spaces all with their own musical agenda and striking décor.
Another quality club in 24-hour Square, Mango is a solid choice for your final destination of the night. The crowd here tends to be quite young, but isn’t rolling back the years what stag nights are all about? Musically, expect House, Funk and Alternative. Whatever the DJ is playing, the volume control is always set to the max.
If you’re looking for a clubbing destination in which to showcase your pointy shoes and sharp shirt, then Maná, situated beside the Marina, is the choice. As with most places in the vecinity, this is a classy venue where looking good is equally important as having fun. However, the atmosphere in here is excellent so if you want a stylish night out, Maná is the venue for you.
