Night Life – Playa del Ingles
Playa del Inglés/Maspalomas offers some of Europe’s best gay nightlife. Whether you just want a relaxing meal and drinks with friends, or a night of wild partying, you’ll find Playa del Inglés comes alive after dark.
The Yumbo Centre is the main hub of gay nightlife, and is transformed from a daytime shopping centre into a gay mecca at night offering everything from cocktails, dinners, discos and drag cabaret to bear or leather bars and a sauna.
You will find there is a good mix of visitors and residents (particularly at weekends), but don’t expect bars to be at their busiest until after 11p.m, and most clubs go on until dawn (there are always taxis on hand to get you back to Villas Blancas only five minutes away).
Gran Canaria’s capital, Las Palmas, has its own gay nightlife, currently enjoying something of a revival. There’s a growing number of bars, clubs and cabarets, often with more of a big city metrosexual atmosphere than the scene in the south.
