Due to its mild, inviting climate, Alicante has an easy, carefree nightlife all year round, although the summer season obliges it to continue into the wee hours of the morning.
There are many places to have a drink or a bite to eat around town, but we can particularly recommend the old city centre, known as El Barrio. You'll find bars, cafés, taverns, cervecerías, pizza joints, mesones... each with its own style and personality, where the music never stops, from salsa to jazz, not to mention rock, sevillanas and others.
The "modern" zone (between Alfonso El Sabio and the Explanada) offers other types of entertainment, with elegant pubs, restaurants with famed cuisine, discotheques and dance salons, all with the most sophisticated of décors, where the nightlife is no less enthusiastic than elsewhere. In Summer, enjoy the nightlife in the Playa de San Juan.
