Valencia - Bars & Nightlife
Spanish cities are often described as party destinations in foreign travel guides. But Valencia is considered to have the best nightlife of them all, even among the Spaniards themselves. This is partly because of the large, 100,000 strong, student population. The locals go out late, usually not until 11 pm, and most bars stay open until 3 am or even later. The city’s main party street is Calle Caballeros in the Barrio Del Carmen neighbourhood. Come here for a mix of tascas, bars, and clubs. Simply ask around to find out which night-clubs are in vogue at the moment.
