The nightlife is best and most abundant in the part of Alicante known as “el Barrio,” located around the Cathedral and the Rambla de Méndez Núñez. All sorts of pubs, terraces and nightclubs are to be found here. Fashionable clubs with imported DJ’s are located next door to bars for customers with different ages and music preferences. Night owls will have few problems to decide where to go as there is a variety of music bars open all night.
La marcha alicantina, as Alicante’s nightlife is known, has become one of the city's main attractions in itself, as well as being a major contributor to the local economy.
There are more bars on the Muelle de Levante wharf next to the marina and also an area in Playa San Juan known as the Golf Course.
