Nightlife is concentrated in two or three main hubs. The most traditional is the Barrio del Carmen, or El Carme, a tangle of narrow streets in the Old Town, particularly between Plaça del Tossal and Plaça del Doctor Collado

That’s where you find The Lounge (C/del Estamenyeria Vella 2), a pub-like cervecería and sports bar pulling pints of Paulaner, Amstel, Guinness and Murphy’s. and screening action. 

Further up, Beers & Travels on Plaça de Manises concentrates more on the 66 varieties of ales and lagers expertly collated, from Abadía de Scourmont to Zeta. Over on Carrer de Sant Tomás, the Viking Mama Beer House, opened on the eve of the pandemic, survived to serve plentiful European beers on tap and hulking burgers suitably named after Scandinavian gods, surrounded by sports action on five screens. 

Further round the city centre in the grander area of Cánovas, on and off main avenue, the Gran Via del Marqués de Túria, you find more pubs appealing to a younger, more international crowd such as St Patrick’s with its ten screens for sport, live music and games room, and the more local-oriented La Pinta Bodega.
