It is said that the inhabitants of Seville are "living in the street", which means that a typical Sevillano never enters his flat if not either for eating or for sleeping. So a lot of ambience around the clock is guaranteed in this city.
Barrio de Santa Cruz
Many of the locals in this traditional part of town close already around midnight, but until then you may have loads of fun. You will find here many typical bars offering delicious "Tapas" and regional wines.
Specially around Iglesia del Salvador and in the area of Alfalfa you will find crowded locals and large groups of youngsters using streets and squares as an extension of their favourite bar.
Park of Maria Luisa
Here you will find nice summer terraces, many of them in the old pavilions of the Exposition of 1929, close to the Theater Lope de Vega. Many locals play dance music, and the party takes until the early morning.
Along the River
Also along the river, specially close to the territory of EXPO '92, you'll find places that are really in fashion. Again many of them are "open-air", and have a really lively ambience.
The inhabitants of Sevilla know how to enjoy their free time and the city offers a wide selection of night spots.
The area surrounding the Cathedral contains a large number of quiet bars and cafeterías, ideal for having a drink and talking with friends.
The Santa Cruz district and the Argote de Molina street are recommended for the first drink of the night.
Betis and Alfalfa streets offer a wide range of bars and discotheques with a lot of night-time activity.
For drinking late into the night we recommend the streets of Marqués de Paradas, Julio César and Adriano, near the old station of the Plaza de Armas.
During the summer, because of the heat, the most enjoyable spots are the numerous open-air bars set up along both sides of the river.
