So, you've just finished a hard day's work in your new home city of Seville, and you're looking for something to do in the evening. Sure, you can kick back in your home, but you will want to go out and do something or see people from time to time. Therefore, what options are available to you?

As with any city, Seville has lots of attractions and distractions, from having a quiet drink in a tapas bar to busting some moves on a nightclub dance floor. Here are a few ideas for you to consider.

Go for tapas

Seville is a city with approximately 3,000 traditional and modern tapas bars, convivial places to pop into for a drink and a bite to eat, on your own, with friends, or work colleagues. It's common for people to go for a drink with colleagues after work. If you've got a good bunch, you have found yourself an instant social circle.

Watch live sports in a pub

Watch top sporting action on jumbo TV screens with good food and drink and a buzzing atmosphere like no other. If you're into sports, head to one of Seville's sports bars to watch football, basketball, tennis, and much more. This gives you an opportunity to watch events that you may not be able to at home, and you may even make new friends with people who share similar interests. Among the top sporting bars in Seville are The MerchantO'Neill's and The Phoenix Pub.

Play sports

When you prefer participating rather than watching sports, put your body through its paces at a gym, fitness club, or municipal sporting centre. With so many on offer, keeping fit in the city has never been easier. Among the larger complexes with a range of indoor and outdoor sporting facilities are:

  • Centro Deportivo San Pablo - swimming, indoor football, diving, gymnastics, rugby, paddle tennis, weightlifting, aerobics, climbing, skating, and more.
  • Centro Deportivo Hytasa - tennis, badminton, squash, volleyball, basketball, handball, gymnastics, swimming, and more.
  • Centro Deportivo Mar del Plata - gymnastics, aerobics, basketball, and more.

Many neighbourhoods also have sports centres or pabellón deportivos, so you are bound to find one near you.

Enjoy a night out at the movies or theatre

Seville has a good selection of cinemas right across the city, so grab a carton of popcorn and settle down to watch blockbusters or independent films on the big screen. Among the cinemas are CINESUR Nervión Plaza and Avenida 5 Cines.

If you're in the mood for a play, musical, opera, or other live performance, reserve your seat at such theatres as the Teatro de la Maestranza and the Teatro Lope de Vega. To search for movies, concerts, festivals, exhibitions, and theatrical spectacles in Seville, go to and What's on in Seville.

Go clubbing

If you ever get that Friday feeling on other nights of the week, put on your dancing shoes and head out to pubs and clubs that are open to the small hours. Whether you want to listen to live music or dance to DJs, there's a large variety of venues. While some places are open on most nights of the week, the bigger clubs tend to open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Among the neighbourhoods where you'll find lots of nightspots are Alfalfa, Alameda, and Triana.

And for something completely different
