Puerto Banus Nightlife
During the summer months there’s plenty going on in this relatively small town for the late-night reveller. The season starts from about May until early September, but the clubs in Puerto Banus are at their peak during July and August. Apart from Puerto Banus beach clubs, where else should you go for the best Puerto Banus nightlife and what should you expect when you get there?
The biggest of the clubs in Puerto Banus boasts several rooms with different vibes taking a capacity of 1500 people. Bed is the main room within Sleek nightclub; it’s where the party’s at its loudest playing Electro, Hip Hop, RnB and House. As the main room there are often live acts playing, ranging from DJs to entertainers. For an altogether more chilled out vibe, Terrazzo is Sleek’s outdoor venue, with its own bar, comfy seating and DJ. It also has a Sheesh bar where VIP guests can choose from flavoured Shishas or Cuban cigars – surely a smoker’s delight. Carretera Cadiz, KM 175, 29660; Sleeknightclub.com/
The location of this nightclub is enviable at the end of Calle Muelle Benabola looking out over the sea and the bobbing yachts – you can only be in one place and that’s Puerto Banus. This club treats their clients to a night of clubbing under the stars with Shishas, champagne and waiter table service. Calle Muelle Benabola, Puerto Banus; Pangea-club.com/
With indoor and outdoor seating, this club plays host to a busy crowd from May through to September. Every night it offers different music from RnB to House as well as live acts such as Professor Green. They certainly put on a good show, with circus performers and entertainers on some nights to keep the crowds occupied. Antonio Banderas Square, Puerto Banus; Tibubanus.com.
Situated on the second line in Puerto Banus, Seven is from the Funky Buddha team and offers an ethnic ambience to their décor. It’s another popular venue with both tourists and locals that heats up around 2am with a mixture of music. And should all the dancing get too much, there are lots of comfy beds to rest and people watch. Avenida de la Ribera, Puerto Banus 29660; Sevenpuertobanus.es.
A bit out of the way but worth the visit is this grande dame of nightclubs in the area Olivia Valere. It trades off being Europe’s best clubbing environment and the décor is opulent and comfortable. The capacity is 1000 and it’s open until 6am but it’s a more relaxed affair compared to the likes of Sleek (see above). Just make sure you dress to impress at this stylish club. Ctra.

Since its opening in 2012, this multi-million-euro super-club located under La Sala has established itself as one of Banus’ top venues. Reaching new heights of opulence in the club scene, it features a Super VIP room with private bar, dedicated waiter, and rockpool Jacuzzi; fans include Eva Longoria and TOWIE stars Chloe Sims and Joey Essex.
