Nightlife on Tenerife
The choice of bars on Tenerife is as diverse as the choice of restaurants on Tenerife. Tenerife’s reputation as being full of Brit bars is a bit misleading. Clearly they do exist but mainly only in the resort areas. Most of the bars on Tenerife are low-key Canarian affairs except in the larger towns and cities where there are some buzzing bars and clubs with a great live music scene. Whilst Playa de las Américas is known as the nightlife centre of Tenerife, that’s only in tourism terms. La Laguna, Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz all have very lively nocturnal scenes but as they don’t hit their stride till after midnight, they often don’t make it onto the radar of many British visitors.
Real Tenerife’s nightlife page includes our recommendations for bars (from bouncing, sweaty Cuban clubs to cool terraces to sink a sundowner), favourite bands and festivals and anything generally connected with having a good time where alcohol and music is concerned.
Best Lively Bars on Tenerife – Route 66
Route 66 opposite the Barcelo Santiago Hotel is a sort of Mecca for anyone on holiday in that area who enjoys a blast of decent live music. Route 66 even attracts the rubber band wearing all-inclusive brigade from nearby hotels so that should tell you something. The line-up varies but top draw are regulars Old Dogs New Tricks, a duo whose likeable personalities make their crowd pleasing anthems all the more sweeter to the ears. .
Best Bars to Relax in on Tenerife
As chilled as a surf dude's post-wipeout beer, Flashpoint is a laid back beach shack that's in with the windseekers of the south of Tenerife's most unresort-like resort of El Médano. Perfect for people watching and views of one of the best natural beaches in south Tenerife with coffee & cake in the morning and cava & cocktails at sundown.
Top Bands & Acts on Tenerife: Korsak
Korsak are a five piece band whose influences range from Steve Winwood to Jack Johnson to Ben Harper. Great musicians, especially guitarist Israel Garcia, and music to rock to. Having an ultra charismatic lead singer in Simon Korsak doesn't do the cause any harm. These guys will have you dancing, laughing and singing along. Don't miss them. They play venues in the north & south Tenerife so no excuse.

What Makes The Real Tenerife Different?
We’ve watched sunrise from the summit of Mount Teide and bathed in midsummer waters at midnight; belted out This Sex is on Fire in bars in Las Américas and cried to Ave Maria at fishermen’s fiestas; downed mojitos in Cuban bars and shared vino del pais with caballeros in the mountains; slept in palatial hotels and under canvas in the pine forest; cross-dressed at carnaval and been spellbound at silent, religious parades; trekked to remote hamlets and followed tapas trails galore.
