Malaga is a city that enjoys its nightlife, not only in the Summer months, but throughout the year. There’s a very active nightlife on the streets of downtown Malaga, as that’s where Malaga’s nightlife is experienced on every street. If you find that hard to believe, all you must do is wander into the city upon sunset. Streets and plazas are full of people moving from one bar to the other. And there is literally something for everyone in this city.
How to get there
To go out partying in Malaga from Marbella, your best choice would be by taxi cab, even though it will cost you close to 60 euros. Taxis are the most advisable choice for two reasons: first, you’ll be able to drink without having to worrying about driving later, and second, you won’t have to worry about where to park.
Malaga’s taxi services operate quite well and, if you intend to go out and about downtown, you’ll have no trouble finding this service available 24-hours a day, as you’ll find a taxi station on the corner of Larios street and Alameda Principal. Furthermore, if you don’t feel like walking, you can call any of the following taxi services and they’ll send a cab to wherever you are.
Where to park
In Malaga, especially downtown, it’s hard to park, so if you decide to drive your own car, we recommend using one of the many public parking lots located throughout and around downtown, as they are all open 24-hours a day.
