Visitors to Bilbao can expect the same dynamic and exciting nightlife here in Spain's Basque Country as they have seen in other of Spain's leading cities. We all know that the Spanish love to party, that being said, know that in Bilbao you'll find everything from world-class ballet and opera to trendy late-night music bars and gay clubs. A Bilbao hire car is the way to go to catch just the right nightlife you are aiming for.
They have a popular activity here called poteo; this involves drinking small glasses of wine called poteos in so many different wine bars along town. This can seem alike as visiting different tapas bars (or pintxo bars in the Basque region) in the search of different flavours on a night out. This can be the perfect way to enjoy a lovely tour of all the delicious Spanish wines. Remember to leave your Bilbao car rental at the hotel and to keep the glasses small for a better experience enjoying several different wines before its time to call it a night.
The best spots are known to be located in the Casco Viejo, or the Old Quarter and the Licenciado Pozas to give you a few names on where to start this kind of evening excursion.
Bilbao also has yearly town festivals, just like other Spanish cities. The Feast of Santa Aqueda in February is one, involving a colourful street parade and much exciting activities in the Casco Viejo, and there’s also the major Aste Nagusia Semana Grande celebration in August. This is the biggest celebration so you might want to plan your visit around. Featuring free concerts, theatre performances, dances, Spanish bull fighting and fireworks.
Think of a Bilbao car rental for your visit to Bilbao as the way to experience the best parties and festivals the city offers with the comfort and the freedom of your own private transportation.
