Puerto Banus is the glamourous seaside resort located to the east of Marbella on the Costa del Sol in Spain.
Puerto Banus has the reputation as a very trendy upmarket tourist resort which is less than an hour away by car from the nearest airport which is Malaga International.
The resort is one of the best places on the Costa del Sol where one can enjoy a buzzing nightlife scene and is only rivalled by the major nightlife resorts of Benalmadena, Torremolinos and Marbella.
The Puerto Banus Guide has this to say about Puerto Banus regarding its atmosphere and ambience:
“Its fantastic Marina is one of Europe’s most exclusive harbours, lined with bars, restaurants and cafés.
Soak up the Hollywood ambiance from a nearby café and observe the rich and famous, or take a romantic stroll past the million dollar yachts.
During summer, the atmosphere transforms at night with people filling the streets.
Enjoy a meal at one of the various restaurants before hitting the bars and nightclubs.
Head to second line for a long night of partying, or relax in one of the quieter Piano Bars along the front, facing the Marina.
Dance to your heart’s content in a late night bar such as La Comedia or try one of the popular funky nightclubs, all within a few minutes walking distance.
Clubs tend to stay open until the very early hours so make sure you can keep up the pace!”
La Comedia is one of the oldest discos in the resort and is the venue to enjoy some dancing and drinks.
“Puerto Banús’s most popular club, La Comedia is a great place to drink, dance and have a rocking good time to the latest hits until well into the next morning.
Situated in Plaza la Comedia, this is one of Puerto Banus´s oldest clubs, and is one of the last to close.
A real late night club, La Comedia still has people piling in at 4am. Open from 11pm-6am.”
The most popular nightclub of all in Puerto Banus is China White. China White used to be better known as Dreamer’s.
The new China White was launched with a party on the 3rd of June 2011. Below you can read all about the Dreamer’s Disco now known as China White.
“Formerly known as Dreamer’s Disco, the club has recently changed its name to The club by Dreamers. Widely regarded as the best club in Puerto Banus, The Club is a fantastic venue to dance the night away.

According to the Indigo Guide worth visiting on the nightlife circuit are the El Cubanito and Mambo.
“El Cubanito is a disco pub, with an unusual thatched roof, an outdoor dance floor and booming Cuban music.
Or swing to the salsa music at The Mambo, one of the biggest night time venues in Puerto Banus”.
