Bars in Granada, Spain

C/ San Juan de DiosGranada boasts a few different areas to hit up on its bar scene. The streets surrounding Plaza Nueva brims with a young, university-age crowd as does the area around the university (San Juan de Dios, Carril del Picón, and Pedro Antonio de Alarcón are a few streets to take a look at). A slightly older crowd of twenty-somethings hang around the bars lining Calle Elvira, where bands often play during the winter months.

Spaniards love to be out and about when the weather permits, so during the mild months follow suit and head to the Paseo de los Tristes to grab a drink at one of the many terrace bars.
