When the sun sets over the glistening Mediterranean, the city of Torrevieja gears up for night time fun and entertainment. With hundreds of bars, cafes, tapas bars, restaurants and nightclubs, visitors to this vibrant city are never short of something to do. Being a predominantly working town, many of the bars and eateries, especially away from the beach area, are great value for money and if finances are really tight, a free snack can be had when ordering a drink in some of the traditional tapas bars. There are also great value tapas restaurants such as Euromania, located on Calle Ramon Galud, where a wide selection of tapas are available for as little as 1€. Bar Carlos is located near the Friday market, has a pleasant terrace area and features live music every night. On Calle Rafael Anton Perez, Bar del Mar is a popular venue and serves reasonably priced drinks, food and offers live entertainment most nights.
Nightclubs and Nightlife
Torrevieja has a few nightclubs and by far the most popular, especially during the summer months, is OZ, formerly called Pasha. The club is open from midnight till 7am and features some excellent resident and guest DJ’s, theme nights, live acts and attractive PR staff offering drinks promotions. They have recently opened an over 21’s bar and also have a VIP room available for all sorts of events and special occasions. It is located on Avenida Delfine Viudes. This is where the majority of the city’s nightclubs are located, due to the fact that it is an industrial area and the clubs can pump out the tunes until the early hours without disturbing any residents. For a seriously laid back vibe, Love Discoteca has a fantastic terrace area featuring large Lebanese style tents, complete with beds !! Inside the club there is an upstairs gallery overlooking the dance floor, cabaret stage and podium dancers where the atmosphere is lively with Dj’s spinning the latest in dance, house, R&B and Latino music. Love is open Thursday to Saturday from midnight to 8am. Other clubs in the city include Madisson, Genius, Ultra and Niki Lounge.
Probably the most famous party venue on the Orihuela Costa, Bushwacka Bar is well worth a visit. Located on the popular Cabo Roig Strip, it is just a 10 minute drive from Torrevieja and features some excellent DJ’s spinning the latest tunes, an impressive lighting system, large dance floor and regular events such as foam parties and live music. Bushwacka is now fully refurbished for summer 2016 with a great new menu and exciting line up of events. Located in the popular Villamartin Plaza, Sala Passion Dance Club is fairly small but gets lively during the summer months and has a pleasant little outside bar and terrace area to cool off between dances. The club is open every night from 22.00 – 07.30 and the plaza has a selection of great bars and some of the best restaurants in Orihuela Costa.
Nightlife in the city is not all about bars and nightclubs, there are cinemas, theatres, social events, festivals, street performances and markets. Most shopping malls open till late and the fantastic Sports City that offers practically every sporting facility imaginable is open daily until 11pm.
