Gran Canaria Nightlife
The nightlife in Gran Canaria is second to none, with night
clubs, foam parties, karaoke, casinos and cabarets dominating the
party scene. Most of the nightlife on the island is centred round
Playa del Ingles' and the Kasbah centre here is brimming with pubs
and clubs, such as the Hippodrome, Havana and the iconic Pascha
nightclubs which, pump until the early hours. If you're looking for
a gay scene, head to the Yumbo centre - it's the place to go.
Entrance to most nightclubs is free but be prepared to pay over the
odds for drinks and cocktails.
Las Palmas' Plaza de España in the Mesa y Lopez district has pulsating clubs and bars that are open until very late, as well as live bands, jazz bars, pubs, and discos and even a casino. The Maspalomas Plaza is great if you're looking for a relaxing couple of pints in a bar, or head to Puerto Rico, one of Gran Canaria's hottest nightspots, for all-night clubbing and pubbing at places such as Disco Joker, Snoopy's Bar and Space.
Playa del Cura is a fantastic location for a mellower evening out and although there is a disco in Puerto Morgan, most of the evening entertainment is distinctly low-key in comparison to its neighbouring resorts.
