Seville Nightlife

Buddha Del Mar
8 Plaza de la Legion
Spain 41001
Tel: 34 954 089 095

Buddha Del Mar is housed in the former Estacion de Cordoba train station, a Mudejar building that was originally built as the Seville pavilion for the 1929 Ibero-American Expo. Spread over three floors, it offers oriental cuisine, a tearoom, chill-out lounge, and a nightclub. In summer (June through September), head to the huge terrace, where you can recline on a Balinese daybed if you buy a bottle of liquor, and gaze up at the huge arched iron and glass windows.

Open Mondays through Wednesdays 1 pm to 4 am, Fridays and Sundays 1 pm to 6 am.

Casa de la Memoria del Andalus
28 Ximénez de Enciso
Spain 41003
Tel: 34 954 560 670

This plant-filled 19th-century patio offers one of the most authentic flamenco experiences if—like most people—you'd rather not stand around in a packed, smoky bar till the small hours hoping for a glimpse of "duende" (flamenco spirit). This is a popular venue, so buy tickets in advance and get there early for a good seat—chairs are arranged in rows around a small stage. As well as flamenco performances with a singer, dancer, and guitarist, you'll find concerts of Arabic and Sephardic (Judeo-Spanish) music that offer a less typical experience.

Performances daily at 9 pm.

Terraza Capote
El Barranco
Calle Arjona
Spain 41001
Tel: 34 680 182 225

Hidden away by the Puente Isabel II, better known as the Triana Bridge, this outdoor hot spot is Seville's answer to the beach bar, with shady palm trees and tables that overlook the river. It's a relaxing place for an afternoon tipple, but at night, with the arrival of the DJ, it attracts an up-for-it young crowd. A few of the potent caipirinhas should get you in the mood.

Open daily 12 pm to 3 am, May through October.
