Town Bars (calle real)

The bars in the town are a great area to visit to see something different, including more than one positively unique bar.

This very nice establishment is less of a bar more of a cocktail lounge. It is located at the very end of Calle Real away from the port. Tolone specialises in speciality cocktails, milkshakes, coffee, and teas. This is for all ages and the atmosphere allows everyone to mix quite easily. The bar itself is really small so most of the tables are outside. This is not only great in the summer, but also in winter, thanks to heaters. This place is very popular so you can often find that you can’t get in, but it’s well worth the try for the very reasonably priced, fancy drinks. We recommend the alcoholic coffees and milkshakes not readily available elsewhere. They also do snacks such as nachos and cheese and hot sandwiches, also excellent.
Arrive time: Day time and before a night out.

Port / Marina Bars with music

The port is a good 10/15 mins walk away from the centre of town but once you get there you will find everything you need for a good night. The port is literally a big cluster of bars, lounges, coffee shops, ice cream parlours, restaurants, early and late nightclubs. You can literally enter the port at 8pm and be entertained until 7am (tried and tested!).

Louie Louie
Rock music bar located in Edificio PuertoSol, in Estepona Marina, near to O' Donoghues Irish Pub. Opened in 2013. (Previous bars here were La Bomba, Ebola, Comic & Doñana in early 1990s) Regular Spanish bands perform, typically from Malaga, Sevilla and Northern Spain, and often renowned bands from the UK, US and Australia who are undertaking European tours - a great feat for a small venue. Typically a haunt for heavy rock or blues bands. Regular Saturday night early shift performers include English session music veterans the KP Band.

Opens nightly (except Mondays) at different times depending on performances, usually from 21.00 hrs, bands are billed to start from 22.00 to 00.00 hrs but frequently start an hour late. Entrance free, except when when bands are playing; this admision from 3€ (local band) to 12€ or even 20€ depending on the band. There is often tribute bands at weekends. The band's set is followed by DJs (often the impresive  duo 'We are not DJs') set. Loie Loue is a popular cult bar with a very friendly atmosphere created by diverse clientele.  This 'temple of rock' is rated by many as best Rock Bar on the Costa del Sol.  It is certainly unique for Andalucia.  Reasonable bar prices. Once inside one would be forgiven for thinking you were teleported to Los Angeles. The bar staff speak very good English. Check out forthcoming bands on stage.  An outdoor terrace was added Summer 2020, this closes 02.00 in acordance with local noise regulations. Music continues inside behind sound profed walls until about 03.00 hrs in winter and 06.00 hrs in summer. Arrive time: dependant on set, but Louie Louie´s is a good spot to kick off a night at midnight.

O’Donoghues Irish Pub
Located next to the supermarket “OpenCor”. This is a nice bar to start your night, but you can happily stay all night (O’Donoghues closes at around 5 am in summer). This is one of the bigger bars in the Estepona port and serves a wide variety of drinks. The bar staff are very friendly with an atmosphere to match. Sometimes there is a band providing live music on a Thursday.

Reinaldo´s is a Spanish bar opened by a dutch biker in 1989 (who sadly died 2004) which serves coffee during the day, cocktails in the evenings and drinks until the early hours. It a popular meeting place at the entrance to the Marina. Reinaldo bar does not have a dance floor but their eclectic selection of music gets everyone moving. There is no entry charge and it is better known for the external terrace and outside bar with a more casual atmosphere. It is always busy and has great views across the port. They famously host three different "Happy Hours" throughout the night. Perfect for drinks with friends, a pre dinner aperitif or kickstarting a night on the town.
