The Costa del Sol is known for its paradisiacal beaches, immense golf courses and a nightlife unequalled anywhere else in the world. Many of its nightclubs are internationally recognised, and its dance floors and restaurants are an almost obligatory stop for the many night owls who visit Malaga.

The most renowned are those found in Marbella, considered the unofficial capital of the Costa del Sol, especially those located in Puerto Banús.

Which are the best discotheques in Marbella?

Olivia Valère

For many the best nightclub in Europe, the Olivia Velère is located at kilometre 0.8 of the Istán road, with a décor reminiscent of the Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita in Córdoba.

Synonymous with glamour, the venue is divided into four areas: the entrance (perhaps the most elegant), the Babilonia restaurant, the dance floor and a spectacular terrace.

Entry is not cheap, but it’s well worth it to enjoy the sophisticated atmosphere and the performances of some of the world’s best DJs.


Puerto Banús is Marbella’s most emblematic nightlife area and the Tibu discotheque is one of the great icons of this port whose name evokes the jet-set of the Costa del Sol.

Located at 103 Avenida Julio Iglesias, just off Plaza Antonio Banderas (it couldn’t have a more glamorous address), it stands out for its sophisticated atmosphere, the presence of internationally renowned DJs, a magnificent restaurant and a dazzling rooftop terrace. One of the best places to experience Marbella’s nightlife, often in the company of celebrities.

The Marbella Suite

Another of the temples of the jet, located on Avenida Bulevar Príncipe Alfonso de Hohenhole, nº1, inside the Hotel Puente Romano, with decor reminiscent of the legendary Studio 54 in New York.

You can listen to a wide variety of music, played by resident and guest DJs. Throughout the year La Suite Marbella hosts a number of parties, events and theme nights.

It also has its own restaurant, with an extensive and select menu to match its enormous fame.


One of the best nightclubs in Marbella, located on the Muelle del Honor, in the Club de Mar Puerto Banús building, very close to some of the most luxurious homes in the area and with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

For many, Pangea’s parties are the best on the Costa del Sol, in a luxurious atmosphere where it is not uncommon to find some dream cars, such as Porsches and Ferraris, outside the doors.

Funky Buddha

We finish our tour of Marbella’s most emblematic nightclubs at Funky Buddha, located on the Muelle Ribera in Puerto Banús.

With an elegant atmosphere, it has a large cocktail bar and several VIP areas. The service is meticulous, with more than 70 staff at this glamorous nightclub. The music is varied and is provided by internationally renowned DJs.

The party in Marbella lasts all day and all night. To enjoy it to the full, there is nothing better than to visit the best nightclubs in Marbella, authentic temples of fun and glamour.
