Wandering the streets of the Old Town and dropping into various tapas bars is a good way to spend the early part of the evening. A good tapas and wine bar is La Gota de Vino 13, Calle Sevilla 13 (tel. 95-287-57-16), attracting a young crowd that consumes massive quantities of Andalusian wine priced from 1.80€ ($2.90) per glass. Tapas range from 5€ to 7€ ($8-$11). It's open Tuesday to Sunday from 7pm to 2am.

Café de Ronda, Calle Tenorio 1 (tel. 95-287-40-91), across the Puente Nuevo, occupies the first floor of a large mansion. Its main feature is a plant-filled courtyard with lots of outdoor seating. Try one of the specialty coffees, priced from 1.50€ ($2.40), or a sandwich, costing from 3.50€ ($5.60). It's open Monday to Thursday 9am to 9pm and Friday to Sunday 9am to midnight.

Later at night there are various discotecas that come and go with the seasons. Along with a collection of routine pubs, they are found along Calle Jerez and in back of Plaza del Socorro. Plaza de Abela is another center of after-dark bars and activities, as are the streets across from Plaza de España and Plaza de Toros. Favorites in this area include Huskies Sport Bar, Calle Molino 1 (no phone), where beer costs 1.50€ ($2.40). Open Monday at 8:30pm and Tuesday to Sunday at 5:30pm. Closing time depends on business and can get very late during the busy summer months. Another bar favored by young locals is Bar Antonio, Calle San José 4 (no phone), with some of the cheapest beer and tapas in town, both costing 1.50€ ($2.40) a serving. It's open Monday to Friday 7am to 11pm, Saturday 9am to 4pm.
