Drinking & Nightlife

There is no shortage of watering holes in Las Palmas. The Vegueta area, with its low-key ambience, is perfect for chilled drinks and a handy pub crawl – Calle La Pelota and Calle Mendizabal have the highest concentrations of bars. If you're looking for live music, head to the southern end of the Paseo de Las Canteras, near the auditorium. The north end of the city is where you'll find most of the banging clubs, though there are also plenty of more relaxed drinking options, particularly the terrazas on Plaza España and lining Parque Santa Catalina.
