Gran Canaria Nightlife

The nightlife in Gran Canaria is energetic and fun, with nightclubs, 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 party scene, head to the Yumbo centre. Entrance to most nightclubs is free but drinks and cocktails can be expensive. The capital city also has a great nightlife: 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, discos and even a casino. The Maspalomas Plaza is great if you're looking for a relaxing couple of pints in a bar, and Puerto Rico is one of Gran Canaria's hottest resorts after dark, with 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.
