Entertainment in Malaga
If you looking for the right places to kick of your nightlife then malaga will be right down your street though the question is, what streets do you go down to get down to the party. Firstly go to Merced square, its the lifeline that brings everything together, whether you fancy just enjoying a few beers outside or have a great drink with you. The amazing bars or restaurants around. If that isn't your cup of tea then there is calle Lario, a great area which is the main spot in Malaga.
The one thing to keep in mind before you set out that clubs don't get started until around eleven and they won't get busy until much later so it'l give you plenty of time to stock up on tapas to last you to until seven am!
- Liceo- A favourite disco bar with a few tourists thrown in the two floors with a whole spectrum of music to keep you entertained. It follows a gothic theme and has plenty of students who keep the atmosphere going.
- Discoteca Palladium- a new experience that combines different aspects as it has the nightclub, swimming pool and pizzeria (how great does that sound?!)
- Mana- Energetic clubs that have some of the newest european house music.
- Picasso Museum- If you want to know all about Picasso and the masterpieces he created then you won mind heading down to the museum located in malaga. His birthplace is where he wanted some of his best pieces to be displayed and so the museum was officialy opened in 2003.
- Bullfighting museum- It has a great location right inside the bullring and it has a collection of all the bullfighter equipment and attire. It also has pieces of work from Vasquez Diaz and Robert Domingo, though there is also a collection of bulls heads that show a timeline of the sport.
