Nightlife in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
One of the things to do in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is to enjoy its nightlife. However, you should know that it does not have many nightclubs, but it does have a wide range of pubs and places to have a drink. Concerning nightclubs, you have the option of Chester Las Palmas with two floors and a small outdoor terrace. The music is commercial and is located in the Parque Santa Catalina area. On the other hand, in Las Canteras beach it is the Moma Club with house music.
There are also two outdoors nightclubs in Las Palmas: the Copas terrace (port area) and the Tao terrace (Ciudad Jardín), both with commercial music. Moreover, in 2022 Alboroto was inaugurated. It is one of the few clubs in Las Palmas in the Triana area (if not the only one). The place is very cool because it has an outdoor patio and the interior is quite large, but we haven’t been yet! Finally, a kind of small nightclub that is also good is the Bravia Las Palmas, it is in the port area.

Nightlife in Gran Canaria (south of the island)
Most of the nightlife in Gran Canaria is found in the southern part of the island. Today the most trendy places are the Mamajuana, Chester Meloneras, the Botánico terrace inside the Holiday World Maspalomas and the Café del Mar and Bahama Beach house, both in Meloneras. Moreover, in the Nomad Gastro Market of the Holiday World there are very good vibes on weekends because they have live music.
Actually, clubs as such in the south is only the Chester Meloneras, the rest are simply places to have a drink in the south. For example, in the area of Playa del Inglés, there are many pubs and bars. Especially in the area of the Kasbah Shopping Center. The same happens with the nightlife in Puerto Rico. It is a very touristy area and you might see many drunks around. Finally, in Maspalomas we also have the area of gay bars and clubs in the Yumbo Shopping Center. A site that is already known worldwide among the LGBTI community.
On the other hand, the El Aquelarre terrace has become trendy in Telde. It has a beautiful roof top terrace and on the ground floor a large room with reserved spaces. The concept is somewhat calmer, an ideal place to have a drink in Gran Canaria.
Finally, in the village of Agaete on the top floor of the Occidental Roca Negra hotel they have a nice terrace to have a drink during the day and also enjoy the sunset.
