Santiago’s size determines that the theme-based specialisation of its clubs is not so developed as in large cities and that different kinds of people coincide in the same place, making for a more heterogeneous and enriching night out. Also worth mentioning is the versatility of some premises, which begin the evening as bars, or cultural or music venues, and end us as dance clubs.
Even so, in Santiago there are specific clubs featuring Latin rhythms; others for mature folks interested in a quiet drink and dance; there are gay bars and a lot of “gay-friendly” clubs; clubs of cosmopolitan design; alternative clubs; including folk-scene clubs, closely linked to Galician culture; discos and a lot of dance clubs… And there are also the Compostela classics: bars, clubs and cafés that have always been there and that everybody knows.
