The inhabitants of Seville 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.
