Playa de las Americas Bars Introduction

The bars and nightlife in Playa de las Americas are mainly centred around Starco's, Veronicas and The Patch, all centrally located in Playa de las Americas. Veronicas is on the sea front with Starco's about 300 metres inland. The Patch is about 400 metres towards Los Cristianos, again about 300 metres inland.

Bars and clubs usually stay open until 3 5 am. You will discover that certain bars are popular earlier on in the evening and usually close before the "night owl" bars and clubs. An example of this is Starco's which has more bars than Veronicas is busier earlier, starting around 10pm. The more club oriented Veronicas becomes busier towards 3pm.

The Patch tends to cater for a slightly older crowd.

As can be expected bar prices tend to be higher in these popular areas. Often discounts on first drinks are offered by bar touts.  You may be able to lower the cost of the evening by moving from bar to bar.

Out of season many bars are fairly empty earlier on in the evening and consequently lack that essential atmosphere.

An early evening short sleep before you go out may re tune you to the much later nightlife.

 

Bar Tours

Some of the tour operators organise bar tours, an ideal way to get to know the vibrant nightlife of Playa de las Americas. The tour usually provides transport from your hotel / apartment to central Playa de las Americas, and usually includes the first drink at each establishment.
