“The 'just keep going back' bar”
Review of Buddy's Bar

Buddy's Bar
Ranked #1 of 75 Nightlife in Benalmadena
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 September 2013

A splendid bar tucked away a little, but once you find it you will nearly always want to return. The hosts, Jacqui and Malcolm are so friendly and helpful, they always seem to recognise returning visitors. Prices are reasonable and measures good. These days I try to visit Benalmadena a couple of times a year and always spend some time at Buddies. Popular with local ex-pats too.

Jackie and Malcolm are so welcoming and friendly, we found ourselves going here most nights after our dinner as had a super atmosphere and full of friendly people, great for couples or families, everybody's welcome! Jackies magic tricks are the best, Shane and Pia also super, and of course the wonderful Malcolm! Great location near the promenade but just far enough away to have a nice drink. Recommend it to anyone!

This is a must if you're in Benalmadena. Great service, superb atmosphere and always welcoming - nothing too much trouble.
Staff are great and always ready with a joke, a laugh, a chat, a bit of banter and, of course, a drink. Jackie is great with kids and adults alike and is a great source of local knowledge - always happy to help.
Brilliant!!!

What a fab bar run by lovely people. Jackie could not be more helpful if she tried. Never have to wait for a drink no matter how busy. Friendly, relaxing and welcoming but always buzzing. A gem.

This is a lovely bar served by fantastic hosts who cannot do enough for their customers. Jackie always has time for a chat no matter how busy they are and is always keen to help and offer advice and recommendations whenever she can. This bar should be number one in Benalmadena and I would recommend it to anyone who is in the area. We are returning to Costa del Sol in April and even though we are staying in Fuengirola then, we will make a point of going to Buddy's when we are there. Well worth a visit.
