Calpe offers just about every kind of entertainment you could look for whilst on holiday. Whether it’s a calm night out with the family or a party night to remember, Calpe will surely not disappoint you.
All along both promenades there are many beach bars with terraces where you can sit down with a nice beverage or cocktail and enjoy the calm breeze. Both promenades are usually bustling with people from about 20:00 onwards, so it’s crowded but with a very enjoyable atmosphere. And if you go for a stroll you may also see musicians, sand sculptures and different types of entertainers. If you have children with you don’t worry, there is a fairground by the dry riverbed during Easter and from mid-June to mid-September.
In town there are many more bars, from English pubs and Irish Pubs (these are usually owned by locals, but have traditional Irish decorations and serve good ol’ Guinness) to Sports bars, karaoke bars and bars with live music, many of which also have pool tables and/or table football. Most of these bars are open until quite late, some until 04:00 AM during the summer.
But if the night is still young for you, there are many different places to go to depending on the type of music you enjoy and the environment you are looking for. There are rock, salsa, hip-hop, dance, techno or commercial music bars, so you should be able to find somewhere that suits you.
When it comes to drinking prices, as you know, Spain is quite cheap. And Calpe is no different. It is normally more expensive on the promenade but there are some great, cheap bars there as well. Here is a list of typical prices around town:
Pint of beer: 2€ to 5€
Coca cola: 1€ to 3€
Cocktails: 4€ to 8€
Mixed drinks: 3€ to 7€ (please note that in Spain there are no official measurements when pouring spirits, so mixed drinks tend to be strong)
