Nightlife in Tenerife is certainly diverse with venues offering relaxed vibes to lively nightclubs staying open till the sun comes up. You will find everything from fancy cocktail bars, beer swigging salons to fantastic sunset bars. There really is something to suit anyone’s desire, if you step away from the plastic chair brigade there are some real gems if you know where to look! 


There really are a vast amount of bars and clubs in the North of Tenerife, some good some not. Here we will list only, the most exceptional venues that are offering that little bit different from the norm.


Abaco, located in the El Duranzo area of Puerto de la Cruz it is situated in an eighteenth century mansion. On the lower level there are a couple of interlinked rooms, leading into the main bar area. The outside garden area is fantastic, open and well-kept there is plenty of space to kick back and relax. Upstairs this Canarian mansion stays true to its routes and the rooms are all loving restored to their original glory. You can walk around and take it all in, or even enjoy your dinks up here. The greatest thing for me about Abaco are the fantastic cocktails that it serves (ranging from 8 – 12 euros) many come served in giant goblets.



Abaco plays host to a number of live music events (usually on a Sunday evening). The bar has very limited opening hours so be careful to plan your visit well. Open on Friday and Saturday from 8.00pm and from 3.30pm on Sunday.

Sunset 290

Sunset 290 is nestled in the side of the Orotava Valley just off junction 31 of the autopista. The name gives it away: an exceptional sunset bar that offers a little more than the usual. Standing proud above the venue is a giant Buddha statue and the Thai theme is continued throughout: from the music, to the furnishings to the food. Sunset 290 is open from Tuesday through to Saturday from 5.00pm till 2.00am. Sunset 290 isn’t the easiest place to find as there is no signage at the top of the entrance. After exiting the autopista (if coming from Puerto) cross over the bridge and immediately turn left, continue down the road to the end and you will have reached the entrance. From there you may need to park up, although there is parking closer it is limited. It is a rather steep walk, thankfully a car is on hand to ferry customers up and down if you don’t fancy the walk.



Sunset 290 is extremely popular; you need to arrive early if you want a front line seat to watch the sunset. Check out their food here, and some of the venue here
