The best nightlife experiences in Tenerife
Here are three of the most interesting ideas you can choose from. These are just a few examples which will show you the wide range of opportunities offered by this enchanting place.
- Music Hall Tavern: the Music Tavern Hall is an institution here in Tenerife. It was opened more than 25 years ago. The founder, the drag queen Mrs T Peggy, has been entertaining her guests in the whole archipelago, starting from Lanzarote, to Gran Canaria to Tenerife. The shows suit all tastes and are suitable even for families as they have a glamourous and sparkling style that contains a subtle but never vulgar irony. The ticket includes access to the show and dinner with a three-course menu. The Tavern Music Hall is very close to the popular strip club Veronica’s, in Playa de las Americas.
- Teidescopes – sunset and stars. If at the end of the day you want to relax doing something really romantic and evocative, this is the ideal activity for you! You can go to Mount Teide National Park, where you can admire, thanks to the telescopes, wonderful landscapes and the evocative lights of the sunset from a privileged angle, sipping wine. You will taste a three-course meal. A guide will help you recognise the landscape among the faint lights of the sunset and then the constellations in a clear night.
- Utopia – The Original Tenerife Boat Party. If you love music and enjoy good company, this is the ideal option for you. If going to a good disco is exciting, it is even more thrilling to dance on a floating club boat! This event is very popular and in the last few years it has attracted at least 16,000 enthusiastic visitors offering famous DJs’ sets and excellent music, varying from house to tropical music, from R&B to hip hop and reggae. The floating party starts in Puerto Colon. The entrance includes free access and bar. The boat stops at different spots to allow its guests to have a swim in wonderful sceneries.
