If you’re planning on going late and loud, join the party in Playa del Inglés.
Home to huge clubs such as Pacha, it’s the definitive place to dance like there’s no-one watching. The commercial centres – Kasbah, Metro and Plaza – are where you’ll discover hot nightclubs and cool bars.
The Yumbo Centre, which has a high concentration of gay bars, offers a brilliant night out whatever your sexual persuasion.
In terms of pubs, you’ll never be far from a pint in Playa del Inglés, with Irish pubs and karaoke bars a-plenty. In fact, the Aguila Roja Centre is renowned for its handful of rowdy Irish bars, making it perfect territory for getting the night off the ground.
Forgot your dancing feet? Have a flutter in one of the island’s casinos. There are several on Gran Canaria. You’ll find Casino Las Palmas in Las Palmas, while the Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort Spa & Casino is a four-star hotel on the edge of Maspalomas.
Alternatively, try a night out at Garbo’s dinner show, famous across Gran Canaria for its glitzy cabaret. Think singing waitresses, chandeliers, glamorous singers and sequin-clad dancing troupes. Complete with a three-course meal and free-flowing booze, it makes for a night out to remember.
For a taste of authentic Canarian nightlife, head for Las Palmas and hobnob with the locals.
It’s a young, eclectic city with an electric atmosphere after nightfall, offering hedonistic fun with a helping of culture on the side.
