When dusk arrives, visitors and locals alike find a cool spot to sit outside, sip cocktails, and chat. Many outdoor restaurants and stores in Barra accommodate this relaxing way to end the day, adding extra tables and chairs for drop-ins. Most of the nighttime action is centered around the walking area near the church. Happy hour typically extends from 4 to 8pm. Closing times depend on the season and mood of the managers.

The colorful Capri Sunset Bar, facing the bay at the corner of Legazpi and Jalisco, is a favorite for sunset watching and a game of ocean-side pool or perhaps dancing. Via Berlin Simona & NiƱos, on the second floor of the Hotel Alondra, is another popular watering hole. Piper Lover, Legazpi 154 A (tel. 315/100-9194), pumps out live blues most nights to a rough-and-tumble crowd.
