Ten of the Best Bars in Tenerife

Post Thumbnail

Tenerife in Spain is a notoriously popular holiday destination amongst Brits, and for good reason! Between the balmy weather, swaying palms, and volcanic beaches, Tenerife is a wonderful choice for those craving some Canarian sunshine. There are plenty of well-loved bars scattered around the island, making it a great destination for those who are partial to a drink (or two …). All of the bars listed are located in the most visited areas within Tenerife, Costa Adeje and Playa de las Américas!

1. Nashira, Adeje

Nashira, a rooftop bar located in Torviscas Alto, is always full of atmosphere and serves a variety of delicious cocktails and small plates – it boasts breathtaking views over Playa de las Americas too. It’s just a 10-minute taxi ride away from the Playa de Fañabé beachfront (where many of the most sought-after hotels are located), or a 30-minute walk up the hill … it’s well worth the trek though! Nashira is open from 6pm until 1am everyday excluding Tuesdays and is incredibly popular amongst locals and tourists. Its interior is modern and stylish featuring greenery with gold details, making it a particularly attractive venue. Additionally, there is a live DJ, which gives it a lively atmosphere. We recommend booking yourself a seat on the outside terrace to coincide with the sunset.

2. Harry’s Bar, Safari Centre

Located on the balcony overlooking the Safari Centre is Harry’s Bar, a modern and groovy cocktail bar with a relaxed atmosphere. This eclectic bar is a well-loved venue on the island which offers customers an extensive selection of cocktails, including frozen mango daiquiris and Hawaiian Surfears – these fan favourites contain a range of tasty ingredients like coconut cream, fresh fruit, and rum! We recommend snagging yourself a seat on the balcony so that you have a front row seat to the Safari Centre’s fountain water show that takes place every hour. 

3. Moonlight Bar, Playa de Fañabé

The Moonlight Bar is located just up from Playa de Fañabé and is famous for being one of the best venues to watch the sun set over the twinkling ocean. While this bar doesn’t boast the most impressive decor, it does serve a range of drinks, all of which are very reasonably priced. The Moonlight Bar is owned and operated by Brits, meaning that it is a great place to visit if you’re looking for somewhere guaranteed to show the football. Additionally, there are live performances from a range of artists throughout the week and karaoke in the evenings.

4. Calma Balkan Cuisine, Adeje

Calma is a rooftop bar situated right next to Nashira in Torviscas Alto. This bar provides the scenic views that Nashira does but without the noise, making it a great option for those looking for a spot with a more relaxed feel. In addition to offering guests a large selection of refreshing cocktails, Calma serves exquisite food. Some of Calma’s best-loved cocktails include the Grey Goose cooler and the loco calmapolitan which is served with a ball of candyfloss to melt into your drink for some added sweetness.

5. Hard Rock Cafe, Safari Centre

The Hard Rock Cafe in Tenerife’s Safari Centre is architecturally magnificent and looks like an ancient Greek structure. This venue is huge and offers a variety of seating options, including a downstairs restaurant, an upstairs lounge and a terrace! While the cocktails in the Hard Rock venues are typically on the pricier side, the atmosphere makes it well worth it. The Hard Rock Cafe Tenerife is often particularly busy, so we recommend booking a table in advance if you’re planning on dining there. However, if you fancy stopping by for a couple of cocktails, then booking is generally not required due to its spacious interior.

6. Bar Fresh, Playa de Fañabé

Bar Fresh is a small and intimate bar shaped like a cruise ship, and is located slightly in front of Playa de Fañabé. This bar specialises in mouthwatering cocktails, and its signature concoction is a wild berry prosecco gin fizz, which is garnished with fresh fruit and a sprig of mint. This bar also has live music in the evenings and is a great place to visit for a pre or post-dinner beverage.

7. Tanyos, Playa La Pinta

While Tanyos is not the most aesthetically pleasing bar, it is well-loved amongst locals and regulars alike. This bar serves a variety of refreshing drinks, including a range of mouthwatering frozen daiquiris and margaritas! The staff in Tanyos are incredibly welcoming and friendly, often offering guests complimentary cheese and ham toasties and crisps upon entrance. 

8. Coqueluche, Adeje

This remote bar can be found a couple of beaches along from Playa de Fañabé and is situated on the beachfront. In addition to the scenic beach view, this bar is an excellent location to chill out with a delicious cocktail while watching the parasailers land on the sand in front. The fishing town of La Caleta is just a 10-minute walk away from the beach bar and is an excellent place to stop for some tapas or seafood!

9. Bloom, La Caleta 

Bloom is a relatively new brunch spot and bar situated in the town of La Caleta which serves a range of regular and plant-based brunch options and cocktails. This bar is incredibly aesthetically pleasing in its decor, making it a wonderful venue to snap some Instagram pics. Additionally, Bloom serves a wide range of tasty and beautiful cocktails, garnished to perfection. Its extensive drinks menu makes this bar a well-loved location amongst many and is certain to have something for everyone. However, it is important to note that this venue is better-suited to day drinks and it may be worth venturing into the centre of Costa Adeje if you fancy bar-hopping throughout the evening. 

10. Havana’s, Las Vista

Another frequently visited location in Tenerife is Los Cristianos, which is where you’ll find Havana’s! Havana’s is situated on Las Vistas beach meaning that it is a particularly scenic bar, ideal for enjoying a cocktail with a view. While this bar is well-known for its range of scrumptious cocktails, it serves a wide variety of other alcoholic and soft drinks. Additionally, the staff at this venue are extremely warm and friendly and their food is to die for!
