Compared to other Andalucian provincial capitals like Sevilla and Granada, Huelva has little to offer in the way of lively nightlife. During the summer months, city inhabitants flock to Punta Umbría.
In Huelva, late-night bars are clustered along Calle Pablo Rada and on Calle Aragón to the west of the Plaza San Pedro. Bar Grial on Calle Ciudad de Aracena and Bar Paco Moreno on Paseo Independencia are great bars to have a drink and a tapa. The nearby Calle Ginés Martín and around Plaza de la Merced, with El Ocho bar and Saxo, a jazz bar.
Bar 1900 on Calle Garci Fernández, 10 is a favourite hangout of literary types, with book-lined walls and art exhibitions.
Northwest of the centre in the Molino de la Vega district, is the music venue the Sala de la Nave on Calle Fuenteheridos. This has concerts of jazz, flamenco, hip-hop and rock bands.
If you are after a place to have a drink 'with a difference', the lounge bar Mandala on Avenida de Manuel Siurot is a must. Decorated in an oriental theme, it is unique for it being located at the highest point of Huelva and therefore providing impressive views and especially magical sunsets. Music is either played by live bands or occasionally DJs.
