Nightlife of Bilbao
Bilbao is the capital of the province of Biscay, in the autonomous Basque Region of Spain. That alone says a lot about the spirit of the city and its people, it says a lot about its past but most importantly it perfectly depicts on its present and every aspect of social life, night and day. Anyway, time as well as rain is a very vague term in Spain and that applies to its autonomous regions too!
Modern Bilbao is a bustling city of over 350.000 inhabitants, all hard workers but with a thirst for nightlife. The same is true for the visitors most of whom are from other parts of Spain but also neighbouring France and Britain. So whether you’re looking for a gastronomic party or an all night fiesta you will not be disappointed
Searching for food, tascas ( small ,casual taverns offering traditional tampas ) and bodegas ( cosy wineries serving exquisite local produce ) are truly indispensable. Gatz, a fine cod tartlet and Port de Basque are enough to guarantee satisfaction to both stomach and soul! The narrow alleyways of the old town are dotted with lots of bars, coffee shops , clubs(such as Café Antzokia and Bilborock),and popular discos where you can dance the night away having two or three drinks. Disco-Pub Crystal and El Palladium are the favourite discos of Bilbao. On Friday and Saturday nights from 6:30pm to 6:30am, the bar that's jumping is Cotton Club, named after its ancestor in New York Harlem. More than 30,000 beer caps form part of the décor! Day and night it’s Ola Bilbao!
We had a great time!
