Nightlife in Benalmadena

I have finally booked a Four night stay in Benalmadena, Never been before which is why we are only having a short break, Apparently our hotels entrainment isn't very good so we will be out about looking for some good night life, Not really interested in karaoke but listening to a good comedian or show would suit us, Day times are not going to be a problem as we will be happy to explore Fuengirola,Torremolinos & Nerja.

Any suggestions would be gladly appreciated.

Depending on your age group, it's either down to the marina & 24hr Square if you're into clubbing all night long, or up to Bonanza & Ibensa Squares if you like things a but quieter !

If you come out of the Siroco main entrance and turn left, a little way up the hill you will come to a 'Y' junction. If you take the left fork you will come to The Elefante on your left at a mini-roundabout. There will be live entertainment there most nights.

If you go straight across at the mini-roundabout, you will see a yellow-painted church ahead of you. Bonanza Sq is to the left of the church and Ibensa Sq is to the right of it.

Hi there, not sure what date you're going to Benalmadena but if you're about on 13th Nov 11 there's a comedian called Dave Young who is playing in the Elefante bar that night who is probably the funniest guy I've ever seen live. We saw him by pure chance in August and we've actually booked to go back for the weekend to see him again. Hope you get to see him.

Hi there

Buzby's would not be the best choice based on what you request as it has Karaoke on nightly and apart from some exceptions the acts are just "so so"!!

Depending on when you are coming, you will have the choice of either Bonanza Bar or Elefante (both just a short walk from your hotel) which host both comedians and also acts of varying styles.

The best place to check out who is on and where is outside the Elefante Bar on the wall as they have the posters and information of which acts are forthcoming for that week.

The shows start at Bonanza around 10.30pm and Elefante around midnight.

This however will depend on when you are coming, as Bonanza is set to close for the winter in the next few weeks for a refurb etc, so it will just be Elefante. In this case, there will more than likely be 2 acts per night on there with the entertainment starting much earlier, probably around 9.30pm.

As for Dave Young.. yes, he's ok.. however if you've ever seen Billy Connelly, Freddie Starr, or any mainstream comedian you will have heard all the jokes a million times before :)

The Elefante did have a guy called Lee Lard on last week (tribute to Peter Kay) and he WAS hilarious.. original and looks the spitting image.. BUT was a very nice person to have a drink and a chat with :)

Anyway, i hope all that info helps...
