San Antonio Bay Nightlife: Bars & Clubs
Although it’s not as famous for its nightlife as its nosier nearby neighbour, San Antonio Town, San Antonio Bay certainly holds its own in the night-time entertainment stakes! By day, the Bay is a picturesque and laid-back resort, with a stunning main beach and five smaller, secluded ones for those who want to get away from the crowds. The resort aims itself at families and couples who want to enjoy some quality downtime together.
However, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t know how to turn up the volume and have a good time, and at night the music gets louder, the party gets livelier, and it’s time to hit the dancefloor in San Antonio Bay.
While San Antonio is all superclubs and Sunset Strip, San Antonio Bay nightlife takes a slightly different form. While you won’t find the likes of Pacha or Ibiza Rocks, you will find some superb bars, playing typically-easy-going tunes.
Kumharas is one of the best on the San Antonio Bay nightlife scene, offering excellent views of the famous Ibizan sunsets. It boasts a lounge, a restaurant and a chill-out area and attracts a regular crowd of both locals and tourists. Couples come to catch the last rays of the day with a cool cocktail in hand, while the locals come to hang out and meet friends. Some of the club set, who’ve come to gently warm up before heading off for the mayhem in San Antonio Town, also fill up the bars. Kumharas hosts live music events, usually in the form of flamenco guitarists or DJs playing the best in chill-out.
Rock, pop and disco
Maxims Rock Bar is another popular hotspot, if you’re looking for upbeat San Antonio Bay nightlife. Music here tends to be guitar-orientated and there’s live rock music on most nights. In addition to a wide range of cocktail, wines and beers, Maxims has also had Sky TV installed: perfect if you’re away on your holidays but don’t want to miss that crucial match.
A short walk away you’ll find Jonny’s Pub, which offers similar San Antonio Bay nightlife in the form of value for money drinks, good tunes, and big-screen TVs. The music here is aimed at pleasing the crowd: think classic pop, disco favourites, and good, old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll. Both bars offer food and, if you’ve stayed out longer than you meant to, their breakfasts are worth checking out!
You won’t find much in the way of San Antonio Bay nightlife after midnight, which is part of its appeal for those with children or couples who are looking for a quiet getaway. If you’re looking to party long and hard, San Antonio Town is easy to get to: you can hop on a Disco Bus or it’s within walking distance. San Antonio Town is world-famous for its club scene, with party powerhouses such as Pacha and Ibiza Rocks, drawing the biggest crowds. The Sunset Strip is where you’ll find all the late-night bars and the clientele tends to be made up of clubbers either coming from or going to a gig.
An essential part of the San Antonio Bay nightlife is its restaurant scene. Walk along the waterfront and you’ll find an extensive range of restaurants serving cuisine from all over the world. There’s everything from traditional English food to Thai and Mexican. If you fancy dining on the sands, look out for Sa Flama, which serves pizza, tapas, Tex-Mex food and hosts a fabulous barbeque. POM Thai offers spicy and aromatic Thai dishes, served in elegant surroundings: perfect for a special night out.
It’s also worth noting that most restaurants along the waterfront have dedicated children’s menus, so you’ll find something to please even the pickiest of palates.
San Antonio Bay nightlife might be low-key, when you compare it to the likes of San Antonio and Ibiza Town. However, it offers the best of both worlds: the chance to enjoy a quiet drink and watch the sun go down or easy access to one of Ibiza’s liveliest resorts.
