Tossa de Mar nightlife

In the summer months the narrow streets of the old town and the wider roads of the new town, behind the seafront promenade, are packed. Nightlife here in Tossa is quiet compared to neighbouring Lloret de Mar, but there’s still no shortage of bars and discos.

For me, a major part of the nightlife experience here in Tossa are the bars and restaurants on the main seafront promenade. These are great for an evening aperitif or post-dinner nightcap - just sit and watch the world go by with the illuminated castle and beach in the background.

If you're hankering for something livelier though, here are a few suggestions:

If you want to get slightly off the tourist trail and head to where the Spanish go, Bar Tahiti (Calle Sant Josep 28) has live music (usually from cover bands) and good cocktails with a slightly older, over 40s' crowd.

Similarly Mar i Cel (Calle Nou Sardanes 3) draws a mostly Spanish crew of all ages and gets packed at weekends. There’s a pretty garden and inside the pillars and walls are decorated with ceramic mosaics in the style of the Gaudí designs in the Parc Güell in Barcelona.

If, on the other hand, you’d rather meet some fellow holidaymakers - most likely Brits - Chaplins disco in Calle Rosa Rissech has a jukebox with a big selection of mainstream hits and the dancefloor is usually packed in the summer months.
