Bars in Valencia – nightlife in Spain’s party city
The Barrio Carmen is the oldest area in Valencia, and home to many bars, restaurants and cafes. It’s become a bit touristy, but there are still gems like the Café Negrito, serving ice cold beers and delicious cocktails both in its cosy interior and spacious terrace, and Radio City, a bar and arts centre with a cinema, theatre and live flamenco performances.
For a mix of stunning architecture and an open-air dancefloor, visit Terraza L’Umbracle, located within the City of Arts and Sciences complex. On Calle Santa Teresa there’s Las Animas Café bar with its cool marble decor perfectly matched to its jazzy soundtrack. Sampling the local signature cocktail is a must, so head to Café Tocado in Ruzafa for a seriously strong Agua de Valencia; vodka, gin and cava swirled with sugar and orange juice. For craft beers produced with 100% natural ingredients, stop into Birra and Blues and sip some local brews while you enjoy the seaside view.
This vibrant city is full of buzzing bars and clubs. Wander through its mix of green spaces, futuristic architecture and old-style cobbled streets to find your new favourite bar in Valencia.
