Have a drink on a rooftop

The idea of having a drink on one of the terraces or rooftops of Malaga seduces anyone. You will enjoy an evening with wonderful views of the city. At night and from the heights everything looks different. Some of the trendiest rooftops in the city are La Terraza de San Juan, La Terraza de San Telmo, The Top at Hotel Molina Lario, Atico Bar & Restaurant at Hotel AC Málaga Palacio, Batik at Alcazaba Premium Hostel and La Terraza de Valeria. In all of them you can enjoy good music, drinks and cocktails, with panoramic views in the background.

Doing a Pub Crawl

If you don’t know what a pub crawl is, don’t worry, we’ll explain what it is right now. The pub crawl is a tour of the different bars in the city. If you want to meet people or travel with your friends, this is one of the best plans in Malaga at night. You will discover the best places to have fun in the historic center of Malaga, while you have a few drinks and learn some local history. There are websites such as civitatis or getyourguide that offer this type of night tours accompanied by a guide.

Party in Pedregalejo

The Pedregalejo neighborhood offers a young and relaxed atmosphere for those who want to party at night in Malaga. Swan, La Galerna or Bar Kali are some of the trendy bars you can’t miss. It is the perfect opportunity to have fun and discover the captivating character of the people of Malaga, one of the best ways to get to know the people and idiosyncrasies of a place.

Going to a flamenco show

Did you know that flamenco has been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO? If you visit Andalusia it is the perfect place to enjoy a live flamenco show. In the capital of Malaga you will find one of the best places to do it: Flamenco Alegria. It is a space where different concerts are held every day with a cast of renowned artists, singers, dancers and guitarists. Passion and art in an authentic and essential environment!

Tapas in the Palo neighborhood

If you come to Malaga, a stop in El Palo, a residential neighborhood with a deep-rooted fishing tradition and a wide gastronomic offer, is a must. It is worthwhile to walk along the promenade that still preserves the old fishermen’s houses, although renovated. By the sea, you can go for tapas in the various bars and restaurants in the neighborhood of El Palo. We recommend you try the most typical Malaga dishes such as fried fish or “espeto” – grilled over a wood fire on the sand of the beach -, “ajoblanco” or “ensalada malagueña”, among other delicacies to succumb to. Some popular restaurants are El Piri Piri, Casa Manuel de la Lonja, or the emblematic chiringuito El Tintero at El Dedo beach.

These are some of the plans that you can not miss in Malaga at night. We hope we have not left any out. Would you add any more?
