Bars in Tenerife on a confined spot seem to be most numerous and varied on Plaza del Charco in the oldest Tenerife resort. There, find easily twenty and more bars within a radius of less than 100 meters.
They figure by all sorts of names names which don't always give away that they have a bar, such as Color Cafe, as seen below. Food served in bars is often fast food these days. There are exceptions.
Why? There are also bar Restaurants, as shown just now.
An alternative to the Plaza formation of bars is the one in a street, such as in La Noria in the Santa Cruz capital. More about the latter later. Bars of all sorts by beaches in Tenerife South run parallel to the seaside. A similar fashion applies to Playa Teresitas with its Chiringuitos beach bars that are all white cabins, though.
Bars in Tenerife are often Bar Restaurants.
Then by law, they should display the sign BARc outside, such as Bar El Rubio outside Garachico in the Isla Baja where locals go to eat fish and seafood.
Find Bar Maredsous at Calle Agustin de Bethencourt 3, Tel: 34 922 38 82 43.
The Maredsous Tapas in their chiller box are looking good.
Such bars usually offer disco dance facilities. Sometimes, they are not owned by the hotel but have private owners. The Disco Bar below Hotel Valle Mar in Puerto de la Cruz belongs to Cafe de Paris.

That means a mind bogging 12,47 square meters which include toilets.
Coromoto doesn't do Tapas any more. However, the Bocadillo El Cuartito is said to be delicious. I will sample it when I shall pass again by the street of the Gofio Mills.
Just now, glimpse one of most rare bars in Tenerife...
This Tenerife Insider bar has no name outside.
Four people who were my daughter Trish, a friend, our local guide and I sat at two round timber log tables and sampled a most delicious salad. The native chef took his time with an order. Meticulously, he worked in his visible miniature bar kitchen. He was weighing all ingredients and added fresh seasoning to his salads.
There, two or more people eat off the same plate with the salad of yam. It's the native way in Tenerife.
The furniture of this indigenous bar follows ancient traditions. The smell of age old wine barrels and roof beams warms the heart. Dignified elderly men assemble there to watch local television. Roaring waves outside add to real time action with unparalleled scenery. Only friends, family and very special people may enter this place.
There are no known Tenerife bars where dogs may come inside. However, their street terraces are usually exceptions.
In fact it's also classified a BarC which serves varied snacks. In the photo notice our dog Jesse under the table of the Bar also known as Cafe Ebano. The surroundings were much too attractive when other pets past.
Many bars in Tenerife cater for special events, such as jazz with Ana Rodriguez. Find many of such concert places published by Spanish news of jazz. However, as said, a permanent Jazz bar/club is needed in the north of the biggest of all Canary Islands.
Restaurant la Casona which also has a bar has live Jazz entertainment on weekends in winter, as seen here.
The saying that a bar business is always a safe enterprise
when nothing else has been working isn't valid in Tenerife. Why? There
are simply too many bars. They often only differ by their
specifications, such as Tasca, Cafeteria, you name it, as well as by
The rent free 60ies style bar Cerveceria Teteria Sueño de La Lucia of C/La Longuera, 60 of Realejos didn't last more than one year until Spring 2014. The good food and drinks at reasonable prices didn't help, as the waiter hardly ever smiled. Very probably, its Bohemian theme also needed a matching neighborhood.
Then, a new, modern bar called Jeers that followed it had no luck either after it had removed its red tables and chairs on the street terrace.
Then, a much more low key but higher quality business with charming staff took over. It was the Taperia Punto de Encuentro a bar restaurant of La Longuera.
However, it resettled for family reasons on the ground floor of Hotel Puerto Palace in Puerto Cruz, while many of its Longuera customers were looking for it. Then eventually in 2018, the owners returned to mainland Spain to be near a son's university.
The following business innovation bar with shop had an interesting scheme. Wonder why the new business ideas didn't work out by this Puerto de la Cruz bar of Tenerife.
Most bars in gigantic premises fail, as rental prices are too high. This has happened over and over in Casa Lara in Toscal Longuera.
Click the photo link for some interesting information. Shopping in vibrant La Longuera means socializing. By the looks of it, this is the village life style which so many British expats in La Longuera love, above all in winter.
This popular Realejos sports bar El Paraiso displays two large TV screens with Sports channels. It is one of older bars in Tenerife. In fact, it has sponsored the local Soccer Club for many decades. It dates back to the Seventies of last century. It's at La Longuera 25 of Los Realejos right in the middle of the Open Commercial Center.
Nowadays, most bars in Tenerife for British Nationals are in Arona by the Adeje coast, Las Americas, Los Gigantes and at el Medano. A few popular Tenerife sports bars that are loved by English speakers remain in Puerto de la Cruz.
Bar Medano is said to be a proper British bar with sports channels but, without real vibes. So what does it take to have flair and to become one of successful Tenerife Sports bars
Bars in Tenerife with free Internet?
Tenerife bars where guests can freely log into the bar's Wifi are rather common now. Just ask the waiter for the bar's code. However, the Internet service is quickly overloaded and the connection may even interrupt.
Discover how university town students often dominate their own bars... The sensational Cervezeria 7 Islas one of top Tenerife bars in La Laguna and a most important international bar with beer from almost every country of the world. Under new management by the way... I shall keep you posted ASAP.
The town of La Orotava above Puerto de la Cruz became the second Tenerife university city in 2013. This study center is sort of a daughter of the big Madrid university on mainland Spain. That should give a boost to the town's bars.
It's best that you order drinks and Tapas inside the bar La Parada. Then, ask to be served on its terrace under the beautiful trees.
Why I prefer the Tapas of the Old Vintage bar Farina 1920 in La Orotava near bar La Parada
Best eating out in Orotava at the Tenerife Bars and Restaurants Grimaldi further up the road from Plaza de la Constitución.
The Puerto Cruz de la Cruz Abaco is one of my family's favorites for a cocktail and Tapas at night. Walk right in and explore its paradise setting with Tenerife Abaco bar photos.
Nowadays, bar cocktail route competitions have become trendy just like those for Tapas. Best, colorful, alcoholic drinks win. In the south, I would always prefer Harry's bar in Arona (Tel: 0034+ 922 383307 open 10a.m.-2.a.m.)with its mellow music and views of the musical fountain which is depicted with the bar at the Safari Center.
Our local guide introduced us to one of the Teno Alto bars with a shop (a tienda) whose goat cheese and good local wine he fancies.
The cheese of this small country business is advertised in three languages by the green timber door outside. It conveys a warm welcome with olden days flair. The door's glass reflects a tiny mirror image of one of my companions. You enter and can take a seat on one of the bar stools.
Contemplate the bar's ocean scenery under stars at night or when the sun goes down. It's by the Maritim Park of Santa Cruz which has free parking. It's also right by the TF1 Southern freeway.
Enjoy occasional live music and delicious fish to eat in winter and perhaps in July or August in the depicted bar next to Castillo San Felipe.
That's at the most popular Beach Bar Restaurant of Playa Jardin beaches. Service is generally very fast.
Beach bar El Charcón further along Playa Jardin at the Punta Brava seashore is popular with Spanish seafood lovers. It has facilities to close its make shift windows when it's windy.
Let me include this Irish bar of Des Reid, as an exception. Why? I prefer to add event bars under the topic entertainment. The location of the Molly Malone bar is C/Las Longas opposite the Tourist offices by the pier of the tiny Puerto de la Cruz harbor.
