✨🍾Going out in Seville, places and tips
Going out at night in Seville is a pleasure, since the city “invites” you to experience the streets, to meet up with friends… the weather has a great influence on this, of course. Flamenco, tapas, views, drinks, terraces… this is Seville at night, let’s discover it:
💎 Basics of the Sevillian nightlife
What to do at night in Seville
Seville’s nightlife hotspots
There is a wide range of leisure and dining options, so you are sure to find an environment that suits your tastes and in which you can feel comfortable.
If there is a favourite place to party among Sevillians, that is the historic centre of the city. You can also enjoy its beauty on one of its terraces and take a break from the high temperatures. This is the case of the terrace of the Hotel EME, where its mojitos, its sophisticated atmosphere and the privileged views of the Cathedral will ensure that you do not forget your night in Seville.
Another very good option is the terrace of the Hotel Inglaterra. It has an excellent panoramic view of the city. You can enjoy the sunset and the Sevillian skyline with a delicious cocktail, an unbeatable plan. In the same square is the very fashionable restaurant Seis, and there are good tapas places in Calles Albareda and Zaragoza. If you like heights, you won’t be disappointed by the terraces of the Hotel Doña María and the Fontecruz Sevilla Seises.
Once you’re back on the ground, a must is the Plaza del Salvador, a regular meeting place and starting point in many cases. Starting the night there in any of its bars bodes well for a great night out.
You have to eat, too, and tapas are an art in Seville, so you can go to Café Universal for some bravas, go up the Cuesta del Rosario and have some “montaitos” at La Mina, try the tostas and provolone at Bar Alfalfa or taste some of the wines and tapas at La Taberna Águilas. But if you’re looking for something really authentic, head for Garlochí, in Calle Boteros, baroque and folklore in its purest form that leaves no one indifferent.
On Calle Mateos Gagos, opposite La Giralda, is the legendary Taberna El Perejil with its orange wine and the bar Las Columnas with its “montaitos” de pringá. Very typical of tourist Seville but with local tapas.
Alameda area of Seville
The Alameda de Hércules is probably the most alternative area of the city. It has a strong personality and its own artistic-cultural environment, with a more alternative and less touristy style. For a snack, Casa Ricardo (where they serve the best croquettes in the city), El Mercado de Feria and Eslava. It is a fantastic place to have a few drinks outdoors since almost all the places have terraces in the square and if, in addition you want to listen to live music, you can go to Naima Café Jazz, Fun Club and Malandar.
El Arenal / Plaza Nueva
The emblematic Arenal neighbourhood offers a completely different atmosphere. This is the area between the Cathedral and the river.
We head towards the Guadalquivir and arrive at Paseo Colón. At weekends from 20.00 hours onwards, it is packed with pubs and people. Dadá and Kiosco Zaratrusta are two of our recommendations. The Mercado Lonja del Barranco, housed in an iron structure designed by the famous architect Gustave Eiffel, is very fashionable. On the left bank of the river are also Capote, Chile and Muelle de Nueva York, all in prime locations.
Going out at night in Triana
Visit our special Triana page to see many options and in particular the Flamenco shows in Seville, which are less formal than in the centre.
Crossing the river we reach Triana, where there are also spectacular views. Here the queen is Calle Betis and the terraces.
If you are one of those who feel like the king of the dance floors at night, Antique Theatro or Rosso, located in one of the old pavilions of Expo 92, is one of the best-known nightclubs as well as its Rosso summer terrace. With more commercial music we have Bilindo, Alfonso or Líbano, in the surroundings of María Luisa Park.
