Cocktail Bars in Tenerife – Our Top 5 Favorites!

Roca Negra Sunset Club

Playa Paraiso is home to one of the best cocktail bars on the island. What truly sets this place apart is its location. Roca Negra is perched on a cliff right above the ocean. From this elevated vantage point, you can admire the beautiful view while sitting on couches along the promenade, at tables on the upper level where a DJ plays, or from the restaurant. The cocktail bar area is the perfect spot for enjoying a drink with a little umbrella, watching the sunset, and indulging in snacks or pizza. However, if you’re looking for a dinner experience, we recommend reserving a table at the adjacent Roca Negra restaurant. Designed in Balinese style, the restaurant exudes a unique atmosphere with hanging decorations, wooden sculptures, potted plants, and rope swings. Of course, the restaurant offers the same selection of fantastic colorful drinks and Spanish wines.

In a secluded area, a large brass “gong” is placed on wooden poles. This symbol, which arrived in Europe from Asia, blends perfectly with the ambiance of the place. Every Sunday during sunset, there is a 15-minute performance where a dancer moves gracefully in a flowing dress, making her way towards the gong and concluding the show by striking it with a special mallet.

  • Dress code: casual/elegant; ladies are advised to wear flat shoes due to the rocky terrain and relaxation area on the cliffs
  • Location: Playa Paraiso, Costa Adeje
  • Average cocktail price: €8.50

Nashira

We’ve placed Nashira in our top list due to its design, high-quality gastronomy and cocktails, service, and terrace view. The cocktails are served in various-shaped glasses and often garnished with plants or other additions.

Let’s start from the beginning. Nashira Cocktail Bar is located high up in Costa Adeje, on the other side of the highway from the beach. This provides an impressive view that stretches across Costa Adeje, surrounding towns, the ocean, and neighboring islands! Inside, a hostess dedicated to reservations will guide you to your table.

Nashira has several rooms inside with beautiful exclusive decor, but we consider the terrace to be the gem of this place! From the enormous glass balcony, you can admire the sunset, making the bar incredibly atmospheric. On weekends, there is also a DJ on the terrace, playing music at a volume that allows for comfortable conversation. It’s recommended to make a reservation in advance if you want a table with sofas on the terrace, as there are quite a few interested guests!

We mentioned the fantastic cocktails, but everyone likes to nibble on something while enjoying their drinks. The menu offers delicious pizza, appetizers, and main dishes. Be aware that the chefs put their hearts into the cooking!

  • Dress code: elegant/smart casual, high-heeled shoes are welcome

Monkey Beach Club

Impressive in its decoration and design even from the outside of the building, Monkey Beach is a stylish bar in the center of Las Américas with a “monkey” theme, inspired by trendy African style! Some drinks are even served in wooden buckets carved in the shape of monkey heads!

You will be greeted by two hostesses in elegant attire before entering, who will then lead you to your table.

Monkey Beach has two floors. The first floor is an elegant restaurant with glass windows and an ocean view. Second floor is a terrace, located on the upper part, which serves as a cocktail bar. The architects of Monkey Beach have made every effort to make this place exceptional, paying attention to the smallest detail. You have the choice of tables with high seats closer to the ocean, huge comfortable sofas with cushions, or tables in the other section where sushi is also served.

La Terrazza del Mare

La Terrazza del Mare is another cocktail bar that we include in our TOP 5 due to its ambiance, decor, presence of a DJ, and fantastic cuisine and cocktails. It is located by the ocean, right on the promenade in Las Américas, next to the previously mentioned Monkey Beach. The location itself is a major advantage as it is situated roughly in the middle of the local “tri-city” area, which includes the resorts of Costa Adeje, Las Américas, and Los Cristianos. There are many hotels, restaurants, and bars with music in the vicinity, and the renowned Papagayo nightclub is about 200 meters away.

As the name suggests (Terrazza means “terrace” in Italian), La Terrazza has two levels. The ground floor features a bar, tables, a DJ, and further back, the kitchen and restaurant. The aesthetic decor of the cocktail bar, along with the play of lights and rhythmic music, create an energetic atmosphere.

Upon ascending the stairs, on the upper terrace, you’ll find seating in various forms, comfortable loungers, wooden benches, a separate bar, and a more intimate atmosphere. DJs often perform on the terrace as well.

La Terrazza del Mare’s restaurant has received favorable reviews, offering meat dishes, seafood, and even sushi.

  • Dress code: elegant/smart casual, high-heeled shoes are welcome
  • Location: Las Américas
  • Average cocktail price: €9.00

La Casa Del Mojito XL

Cocktail bar located in Los Cristianos, situated at the very end of the building on the first floor, close to the oceanfront. The majority of tables are located on a large outdoor terrace, but there are also tables inside. We recommend sitting outdoors on the terrace to enjoy the refreshing view of the ocean through the glass railing. You can choose from tables with sofas, high chairs for 2-3 people, or large round tables for bigger groups.

Mojito XL is renowned for its delicious cocktails at a good price. In this case, the quality is not compromised by the price. They may look expensive, but they cost between €7 and €9. These tasty cocktails are perfect for “Instagram-worthy” photos. Decorations such as fruits, jelly sticks, strawberry or mango slices, and other fruits add charm to the drinks. For fans of dessert cocktails, we recommend trying the piña colada, which has the consistency of an ice-cold shake. You can have it in variations with strawberry, mango, or other flavors. Mojito XL likes to diversify and add new ideas to their menu. For chocolate and creamy flavor enthusiasts, we recommend the frozen version with Baileys, caramel or chocolate syrup, and adorned with wafers.

Usually, the waiter brings snacks like popcorn or nuts to the tables. If you’re lucky, you might also receive a tasting of small drinks as part of a promotion.

The tree canopies growing around La Flaca create a “ceiling” over part of the venue, which is quite impressive. You can sit on leather sofas, smaller seats at smaller tables, or larger tables for bigger groups.

La CocKteleria

This place exudes a local Spanish atmosphere. It’s a small cocktail bar run by a Canarian and an Italian, with only three outdoor tables. It’s perfect for grabbing a drink to go. The cocktails are quite large and reasonably priced. While they may not be on par with the best cocktail bars in terms of quality, we would still say they are pretty good. If you’re looking for a pre-party spot or don’t want to spend much on drinks at renowned establishments, La CocKteleria is the right place for you! Note: Drinks here tend to be strong :)
