Directions to Liceo
Liceo opens on Friday and Saturday nights only, but often hosts special events, receptions, parties and exhibitions. Recently it has become the Malaga home for Los Amayas, the flamenco show based around Pablo Picasso, that is performed twice nightly, seven days a week.
Doors open at 11pm every weekend, until 7am. You can make table reservations if you please. Liceo however is actually pretty relaxed and informal. The crowd is very mixed from twenty somethings upwards, who come to mingle and hang out in any of the five different rooms, each with a full bar. Upstairs has a DJ playing a wide range of popular RnB, electro and pop sounds, while music downstairs is more Spanish pop and Latin oriented. It's as much a bar for drinks as it is for dancing. The entrance fee includes your first drink.
As a Malaga institution, the bar is regularly the host for receptions during the Malaga film festival, and is a popular hang-out of the Malaga media set and fashionistas. It was fully renovated in 2011 by interior designer Juan José Taillefer, who has carefully placed the modern elements to complement the 1870's original decor. The palace was constructed in 1891 as a family home. It was a government building for forty years, and then abandoned until 1993. Since then it has been one of the cornerstones of Malaga nightlife.
It's located very centrally down the long street of Beatas, in the pedestrianised centre. I travelling by car you'll need to park in one of the many city centre car parks, as there is no on-street parking in any of the old town.
