Benidorm is one of the party capitals of Europe, home to more than one thousand beach bars, sports pubs, karaoke joints, nightclubs and other watering holes that do not stop around the clock. The fiesta starts during the day at the beach bars like Tiki Town on the sand of Levante and keeps going until the sun rises the next morning, so don’t expect much sleep!
A few blocks back from the beach, English Square is the epicentre of Benidorm nightlife, surrounded by British and Irish pubs where you can watch the football over €1 pints before hitting up infamous karaoke bars like Black Chicken and show venues like Morgan Tavern, with tribute acts to everyone from Meatloaf to Michael Jackson. There’s no shortage of gents-only clubs, too.
Big-name DJs play discos and dance clubs like KM Playa, Penelope and the massive KU Discoteca — fancier places have a dress code (no shorts and no stag costumes), a modest cover charge and don’t open until 10pm or so. And for a more Spanish atmosphere, eat and drink your way down Tapas Alley in the Old Town.
