Cadiz has a vibrant nightlife consisting of traditional tapas bars, street cafes, all night clubs and some wonderful local fiestas. The city’s student population ensures a lively party scene at all times of the year and the absence of mass tourism means you can enjoy a really Spanish night out.
As in most Spanish cities, the evening starts with a tour of the tapas bars where you can sample an array of tasty Andalucian snacks washed down with glasses of the local wines and sherries. Typical tapas might include “pescado frito”, “tortillitas de camarones”, etc. Some bars offer a selection of 40 or more hot and cold tapas.
Practically every street in the city is packed with bars, cafes and restaurants. Plaza Mina in the centre and “Barrio del Pópulo” are among the liveliest places when the sun goes down. If you’re visiting us in the summer, head for the Paseo Maritimo seafront promenade which buzzes with outdoor activity on warm, Andalucian evenings.
