Nightlife in Malaga

Nightlife in Malaga

A night out in Malaga starts for many young people on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, near the birthplace of Picasso, at the Plaza de la Merced. Not so long ago that evening began in the surrounding bars and cafes, but outside on the square itself. Gradually when the evening falls the square can become pretty busy.  Groups of young people get together and everyone brings their own plastic bag with beer, tinto de verano, a bottle of liquor or whatever you feel of bringing. Later, they start going to the bars and nightclubs in Malaga centre which are open till late.  This particular phenomenon is called Botellón, recently forbidden because of the noise, rubbish and problems they caused.
