5 hottest bars in Lanzarote
Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark.
The Island Bar
Ranked the favourite bar for tourists
You’ll hear it often said on Lanzarote, “You must do the Island Bar!” What makes it so popular? A musician called Rory, ex-frontman of The Revs, and now performing as Rory and The Island, belting out Irish hits like Jimmies Winning Matches. The crowd is well up for the music, and the vibe is electric. The drinks are generous and reasonably priced and the staff is friendly. Now what more could you ask of a bar?
Calle Tenerife, Old Town, Puerto Del Carmen
Bar La Cueva
Have a cocktail in a volcano
Formed by a series of volcanic eruptions, it makes perfect sense that one of Lanzarote’s most iconic bars is set inside volcanic rocks at the base of a dormant volcano. Not only that but Bar La Cueva was once the home of Omar Sharif, he of Laurence of Arabia fame. Exquisitely designed, the complex features a bar, club and restaurant around its undulating white structures, curving staircases and shallow pools. Unique and muchos romantic!

The Owl & PussyCat Inn
The pub’s pub’s pub
The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea, In a beautiful pea green boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note! You may need more than a fiver to enjoy a holiday at Lanzarote’s sea but the Inn which shares the poem’s name is sure a honey! Impressive cocktails, quizzes every night, big prize bingo: it’s like the pub you always dreamed of! Add to that an enormously friendly welcome and you’re onto a winner. Bingo!

Cue the karaoke
Hey, you’re on holiday. Let down your hair – and belt out the tunes! This family friendly bar on the Puerto del Carmen strip boasts ocean views, live entertainment, movies, and yes, you guessed it, karaoke! There’s a large terrace which is perfect for soaking up the sun, the setting and all the sport on big screens. Extremely cheap beer is one of its greatest draw cards. Try a pint for just one Euro before 6pm. Yip, we’ll be going to that bar, thanks!

There’s something that says “Drink me” about Lanzarote, and Il Baretto is more than happy to oblige.

It’s nice and quiet with no blaring TV’s so a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of some of the other spots. Plus, with free Wi-Fi, you can Facebook your friends back home and make them jealous!
