There are pubs and bars that cater to all budgets, some are cheap and cheerful and at the other end of the spectrum are the high-end sophisticated cocktail bars.
Many resorts will also have bars attached to the property but be sure to venture out into the Costa Adeje pub and bar scene and experience something different. You never know where the night will take you in Costa Adeje, it is a vibrant and dramatic area with lots of excitement around every corner.
What to Drink
If you’re staying all-inclusive in one of Costa Adeje’s lovely resorts, you will find that all of the drinks available are locally sourced. If you want traditional branded drinks you will have to either pay extra at the resort bar or as we recommend, get out and about among the other tourists and enjoy the Costa Adeje bar-life.
Local wines and spirits are very common in Costa Adeje along with refreshing local ales. Perhaps the best alcoholic drink to enjoy in Costa Adeje is the famous Pina Colada, an ideal cocktail to lounge on the beach with or enjoy on the bar terraces beneath the stars.

The Pub – Tenerife is everything you would want in a traditional British pub, except it is almost as if it has been lifted from a sleepy English town and dropped in Costa Adeje. Aside from the traditional British aesthetic there have been plenty of Spanish additions, local alcohol as well as “British Tapas” are served unashamedly. Prices are good value for money and the pub welcomes families throughout the day. With its pseudo British/Spanish charm and warm cosy environment this pub is the perfect home away from home.
If you are looking for the ideal place to get pre-drinks underway before heading to one of Costa Adeje’s many nightclubs, then the Achaman Discopub should be your first port of call.
