As with most Andalucian towns Velez-Malaga is a place that knows how to have a good time after dark. If you’re thinking of a night out in one of the bars below, just don’t expect things to get going until well after 11pm…
A fun and unique bar, this venue plays rock music, screens football games (both Spanish and English) and serves beer in pints (a rarity in Spain). At just €2 a pint, regular themed parties and loud music at weekends this is a great place to come to let your hair down.
Address: 4 Calle Juan Fernandez Palma. Tel: 622 90 18 57. Open: Every day 17.30 – close. McClaud Facebook Page.
Sala Casarte Azul
Located at the south end of Velez New Town, this bar has a real neighbourhood feel. With extravagant décor, a relaxed atmosphere and delicious cocktails it’s a great place to catch up with friends.

On Plaza del Carmen (next door to El Pianista del Carmen) is a late night bar. It has a wonderful rooftop terrace with great views of the town, a little oasis of summer night drinking. Opening times vary but largely from 22.00hrs every night other than Mondays when it’s closed. It’s a lively place with four different rooms, two have seating. There’s a cracking bar with good selection of gin in Velez – the pink gin with hibiscus tonic is a particular favourite of ours.

Pool Bar Massé Café
A little walk away from the historic centre of Velez, is this typical Spanish pool bar. If you have some free time, this is a good place to grab a beer or a coffee and play games. Not extremely attractive but you’ll find many pool tables and fun atmosphere.
