Walking around Seville for the first time, you get the impression that there isn’t much going on. But that soon changes – the city doesn’t really get going until after midnight and then things really liven up!
Calle Levies 18, Barrio de Santa Cruz, Seville, Spain
No trip to Seville is complete without going to a Flamenco show. As many places staging it are quite touristy (and expensive), sample some Flamenco dancing in this bar where nightly performances are staged free of charge in the large area out back. Stay late and you might be treated to a more intimate performance in the front.
Open nightly from 8pm-3am; Flamenco shows nightly at 10.30pm.
Calle Cuesta del Rosario 12, El Centro, Seville, Spain
While the first thing to greet you as you walk into this club is a bed, rest is the last thing you'll want to do here. Attracting a young 20-something crowd, chart tunes are what can be heard pumping from the speakers here.
Open nightly from 11pm-5am; admission charge.
Argote de Molina 40, Barrio de Santa Cruz, Seville, Spain
It isn't often you walk into a bar to find countless parts of mannequins hanging from the ceiling while people chat away without batting an eyelid. This is what makes this bar, just seconds from the cathedral, one of the most unique in Europe. While it really gets going at weekends, it's only these dummies you will find hanging from the rafters.
Open nightly from 9pm-2am.
Calle Santa Teresa 2, Barrio de Santa Cruz, Seville, Spain
Another tapas bar, this one is just as suited to a quiet glass of wine as it is a portion of the Spanish snack. As you walk in to see the cured ham hanging from the ceiling you know this is as traditional as it gets.
Open daily from 10am-5pm/6pm-12am.
Calle Betis 54, Triana, Seville, Spain
Arguably the liveliest bar on the colourful Calle Betis just across the River Guadalquivir, this small bar has regular drinks promotions luring students and backpackers in. They even have a small stage if you feel like performing after one too many.
Open nightly from 9pm-3am.
