While it may not seem so there is a method to the madness of nightlife in Sevilla. It’s common to begin with a beer or two and maybe a tapa, then head to a bar de copas as the night goes on. If you’re part of the younger crowd you might wind up in the street for a botellón around midnight, a kind of BYOB party where people bring their own liquor, mixers, ice and plastic cups. Those still wishing to continue often hit a discoteca to dance or people watch until 6 or 7am.
But wait! There are more options than just those above. Flamenco bars range from the more expensive tablao offering professional performances to a spontaneous neighborhood show in a local Triana bar. Both offer other forms of popular entertainment than just hitting the bars. Irish pubs, to varying degrees of authenticity, give you a place to enjoy a pint of Guinness or Murphy’s and take in a football (soccer) or rugby match. If you’re looking for a relaxing evening tea salons take you to Morocco and other exotic places with their decoration while offering teas, juices and pastries. There’s also a lively gay and lesbian scene in Sevilla. So whatever you choose to do, rather than me choosing it for you, I hope to have a suggestion that helps you find your way. As always please email me any suggestions so I can make this page better for everyone. You can also check out the music section or the nightlife by neighborhood feature for some other nightlife ideas.
