There are many bars and clubs that make up the nightlife in Cadiz. There is enough in the old part of the city and the new to make going out in Cadiz an enjoyable and fun experience.
During the summer most of the nightlife in Cadiz, also known as "fiestas", happens on the beach. It is commonplace to spend a few hours on the sand before going out to the bars and clubs.
"Chiringuitos" or beach bars begin to pop up all along the Cadiz coast at the beginning of the summer. Typically constructed out of wood these are fantastic places to chill out. Care for a drink whilst sunbathing on the beach? Simply meander over to the beach bar and order yourself a cold beer or cocktail. If you plan to stay at the beach all day then you'll see some excellent sunsets too.
A night that stands out as the beach party of the year is the Night of the Barbecues. On this night masses of people descend onto Victoria beach, in the new part, with barbecues and beers ready to enjoy a night on the beach. It also coincides with the annual Carranza trophy which is a football tournament organised by the local football team, Cadiz F.C. This usually takes place in mid-August.
If the beach is not your thing then you'll find many good bars within easy walking distance in the centre of Cadiz. Within "las plazas" or the squares there's always a lively, social atmosphere where the bars spill out into the streets. The culture here is to enjoy the food and drink together so expect most bars to offer pleasant side dishes. In the new part of Cadiz head to a street called "Munoz Arenilla". This street contains most the bars and clubs found in the new part and is always a hub of activity.
You can stay outside till the early hours before heading off to "La Punta" - the nightclub strip. Beyond the old part of the centre you will find here a handful of nightclubs. The clubs have improved and now offer a more eclectic mix of music and can cater for most club-goers. Here is where the nightlife in Cadiz has it's final say.
