Nightlife of puerto portals

There’s a fantastic mix of bars in Puerto Portals for you to choose from. With everything from live music to chilled cocktails.

The terraces must switch off music by law at midnight so we recommended making the most of the outdoor areas and splendid terraces before heading indoors at 12. 

You can enjoy some fantastic entertainment on the terrace of BOP (formerly Key West) or have a good old sing along with the live music over at Ritzy Restaurant.  After midnight the party continues inside at BOP with live DJ and upstairs Ritzy is one of the liveliest spots taking you dancing until the early hours.
