Estepona has an intriguing nightlife. It offers everything from local tapas bars to trendy gastrobars which are found largely along the seafront promenade. The back lanes of Estepona see the majority of the activity however. There appears to be no limit to the quantity of little bars littered around the many tight corners. The most well known place is Plaza de los Flores (Flower Square) and here you will locate an expansive range of bars dotted around the square. This is similar to Orange Square in Marbella and amid the late spring is unquestionably the place to mingle and make new friends.
Before you hit the clubs, try some of the music bars and restaurants which stay open until the early hours.One of the most famous restaurants in Estepona (but not the cheapest) is Robbie’s in Calle Jubrique. Marilyn Monroe provides the theme, the food is excellent and past diners have included Antonio Banderas, Michael Parkinson and Cilla Black.
Bars In The Port Of Estepona
The port of Estepona is where you will find bars and clubs that are packed all night long during high season. Renaldo’s, at the entrance to the port, is one of the most popular meeting places favoured by Spanish visitors and foreign tourists alike. Several bars have karaoke evenings, one of the most popular being the Christopher Columbus. Chico Diez and XL pub are two of the most “happening” places to be in the marina, both firm favourites with the younger crowd. If you are looking for something a bit more low key try the Attico where you get a good range of music and great views of the harbour from the terrace.
La Bulla is a gorgeous gastrobar on the seafront of Estepona and it is always busy even during low season. Drinks are priced extremely reasonably and the tapas is to die for. This popular place is a firm favourite with locals and expats alike and it is the perfect place to visit with family or friends.
Tolone is a cocktail bar located at the very end of Calle Real away from the port. It specialises in cocktails, milkshakes, coffee and teas. It is a place for all ages and the atmosphere allows everyone to mix quite easily. The bar is really small so most of the tables are outside. They also do snacks including nachos and cheese and toasted sandwiches.
Bar Caleu is on Calle Real next to Tolone. It is split into two buildings: a sophisticated lounge cocktail bar and an American/irish themed bar which smaller and very informal. The bar is spread out over three floors and is very much an early bar where you can talk above the music. It is surprisingly inexpensive with Spanish music and staff who speak English and Spanish.
