Perhaps the most renowned area in Alicante for nightlife is El Barrio, the old town, which is popular with students, tourists and locals alike.
Its maze of steep, winding streets and tiny squares boasts Alicante’s oldest and best-known venues, where you can hear anything from salsa to hip-hop. You’ll find a variety of pubs, terrace bars and trendy nightclubs around the cathedral and the bustling Rambla de Méndez Núñez.
If you’re after something a little more refined on your nights out in Alicante, however, head to the marina where you’ll find elegant cocktail bars and restaurants, plus the uber-sophisticated Casino Mediterráneo Alicante (Lugar Muelle Marina Deportiva), where you can try your luck in your most glittery cocktail dress or smartest tux.
For a dose of Spanish theatricals and live entertainment in Alicante, catch a show at the stunning, 19th-century Teatro Principal de Alicante (Plaza de Ruperto Chapí).
Alternatively, head along the Explanada de España to La Concha, an open-air theatre shaped like a shell to create the perfect acoustics for atmospheric outdoor concerts.
If open-air nightlife in Alicante is what you’re after, what better way to dance the night away than with your feet in the sand and the stars overhead?
The beaches Playa del Postiguet and Playa de San Juan are home to several beach bars (chiringuitos) that stay open into the early hours, serving up refreshing cocktails and hypnotic beats – legendary Alicante entertainment.
