Murcia Nightlife, Spain

Murcia Nightlife – Eating Out

Murcia is a very lively city where there’s something going on round the clock, partly because of the big number of foreign students and because of the warm and relaxing Spanish coastal atmosphere that almost imposes on you to take it easy and enjoy the sun at a lovely terrace. And, yes, they have plenty of those in Murcia. There are lots of streets that are closed for car traffic and provide the perfect spot to sit down and enjoy your tapas.

The welcoming atmosphere in these places filled with relaxed people will be the best ingredient of your day, but still you can’t miss the tapas! Tapas are traditional Spanish snacks that have specific characteristics from region to region, but in Murcia they make an art out of it. You’ll be impressed by the huge variety they come in and there are taverns where you’ll even have them for free when ordering a beer or a soda.

The Murcians like to be very generous and the food and drink services are therefore more than you expect. However, if you are looking for a meal a la carte, there are plenty of restaurants where you can enjoy typical Murcian dishes like the “olla gitana”(gypsy stew) or the “morcillas”, local sausages that come fresh or dried. You can wash these down with one of the region’s rich wines like those from Yecla or Bullas.

Murcia Nightlife – Bars and Clubs

Nightlife in Murcia is very busy and there are lots of different clubs you can choose from. Some of them offer quality live music every evening, while the bigger clubs only open during the weekend. If you choose to go out dancing, you should know that most clubs open their gates around midnight but they only get crowded after 2 AM.

The party will be at its best at around 4 AM and the clubs only close when the last customer decides to leave. You should definitely try Murcia Palace, which is a highly renowned nightspot that offers sophisticated four course meals and very complex live shows, probably the best in Murcia! Desafio Medieval is another place you shouldn’t miss, because it offers you an authentic medieval feast topped with live medieval fights, all set in an old castle.

Flamenco, the traditional Spanish dance, is also something that you definitely want to see while in Murcia. If you feel like gambling there are casinos that offer the full pack of games, but make sure you have an ID on and that you minimally respect a dress code, otherwise you won’t be allowed in.

For a bit of the seaside feel we recommend Benidorm, an incredible resort located right next to Murcia, where you can find a booming nightlife and lots of high rated clubs. Once you get the seaside bug, you might even want to take the ferry and take a night trip to Palma De Mallorca or Ibiza for some very serious partying. Spain will do this to you, nothing's a bore and you'll always come back for more.
