Salamanca Nightclub and Bar Guide
Salamanca is known among other things for its University, and if there is one thing all University towns are known for it is their lively nightlife and the Castilian city of Salamanca is no exception. Salamanca’s nightlife is like a whirlpool that slowly sucks you in, increasing speed throughout the night to finally spit you out at the break of dawn. If you don’t believe me try it for yourself.
The main zones to go out are concentrated in the centre of the city in the areas surrounding Gran Via and the Plaza Mayor. If you are looking for something a little more alternative, head down to the San Justo Square or Bordadores Street, where there is usually some live music.
Fashions come and go which makes it difficult to say exactly which bars, pubs and nightclubs are Salamanca’s best, especially taking into account the good atmosphere and excellent themed decoration that many of them have and the sheer number. But we have decided to give it a go anyway, so here is a little guide to the help you choose your party destination in Salamanca.
