  4. Bodhran
  5. Vincents
  6. Bar 69
  7. Hagars

Silver Dollar Pub

This lively bar is a hotspot for sports fans. Found on Calle Gerona, it stands out with its bright lights and waving flags. Showing all the big football and boxing matches on huge flat-screen TVs, it’s usually full to the brim with cheering crowds nearly every night of the week. Stay until late for live tribute acts and karaoke.

Olivers Bar

The family team at Olivers Bar is known to offer some of the friendliest service in town. A self-proclaimed British watering hole, it’s one of Benidorm Old Town’s best bars.

Home comforts are at the forefront, with great draft beer and quirky pub décor. Sit indoors and socialise with the owners or relax on the outdoor terrace and people-watch to your heart’s content.

The jokes and puns hanging above the door provide the laughs as you enter and once inside, you’ll find a huge variety of local and international drinks, plus superb deals!


Known for showcasing some of the best live music in town, Sinatra's has built a reputation for being the place to go if you want a singalong and boogie. Even in the quieter seasons, you’ll find a huge range of live entertainment, including pop tribute acts and drag vocalist Ruby Rox. There are two-for-one drink deals on all night too, so that holiday budget can stretch a little further!


Bodhran, a traditional Irish bar that’s just off the beach, is packed with charm. The Hourigan family promise to entertain with live music every single night and a variety of live sports shown on the big screen. For the warmest of welcomes and the best Guinness in town, don’t miss a night of laughter at Bodhran.



Since 1965, Vincents has been one of the most popular spots in Old Town Benidorm. Offering a traditional British pub feel, this watering hole offers plenty of entertainment. There’s bingo that you can join in with and karaoke every night from 9pm.

Hate missing the match? You don’t have to at Vincents, as it shows all the big UK games. Don’t miss the huge collection of sporting memorabilia that adorns the walls!

Bar 69

In the perfect location opposite tapas alley in the Old Town, Bar 69 is where the fun is at. It boasts an impressive list of signature cocktails as well as some of Benidorm’s best sangria – you can even order it to take away!

The friendly team are well-known for their welcoming smiles and great sense of humour. Chat to them as you sit indoors or head out onto the terrace for a spot of people-watching.


From the outside, Hagars doesn’t look like much, but once you step inside, you uncover an Aladdin’s cave of quirky decorations and fancy-dress props. Hosts Paul and Mike work hard to make you feel at home, offering jokes and making sure they play your requested songs.


Set on Calle Lepanto, Ibrox Bar is the home of Glasgow Rangers supporters in Benidorm. Regardless of whether you’re a football fan or not, you’ll receive a warm welcome into the bar and service with a smile.

Expect live music and sports shown daily on the indoor and outdoor big screens. Renowned for their succulent steaks and with great-value bucket deals on bottled drinks, it’s a great location to visit first before hitting the livelier clubs on the strip. If you stay until late, there’s also karaoke to enjoy.
