→ Nightlife At the rowdy end of the spectrum, Playa de las Americas is the nightlife capital of Tenerife. The entertainment in this town can be divided into three distinct areas: the Patch, Veronicas and Starco. The Patch is a small commercial district that caters to family entertainment. It is packed with continental restaurants, bars and shops, and has a distinctly touristy feel to it. Most of the bars here are children-friendly and many serve food during the afternoon. Veronicas and Starco serve up more adult-orientated entertainment. Both areas are packed with bars and nightclubs, and are located within easy walking distance of each other. If you’re in the mood for a quieter night out, you should head to one of the other resort towns such as Puerto de la Cruz, where you can enjoy tapas and a glass of local wine. There are numerous English pubs on the island which offer a relaxing place to have a pint and meet some other tourists. For something a little more sophisticated, check out the Casino Taoro in Puerto de la Cruz. → Theatre and Music Like most tourist islands, Tenerife has its fair share of live musical performances, scattered around the various hotels, bars and nightclubs. There are also several unusual performances here, like the medieval dinner show at Castillo San Miguel in the southern part of the island. For a dose of Spanish flamenco dancing, check out the show at the Pyramid de Arona Auditorium in Playa de las Americas. Opera lovers don’t have to miss out either. Tenerife’s opera season runs from October through December. → Festivals There are a handful of festivals throughout the year in Tenerife as well as traditional Spanish religious celebrations.
