Nights Out

Theatre-goers can choose from a range of theatres and productions designed to suit a large variety of tastes. The biggest theatre is the Laurus National Theatre which has produced a number of award winning plays and musicals. For stand up comedy, the most popular venue is perhaps Dive.

There are a number of cinemas, both modern and more old-fashioned, located throughout the city. Basic ticket prices are standardised across the island, at 7 Ar for adults and 5 Ar for concessions.

The city is host to a number of music venues. The Apollo puts on many popular opera and jazz performances, while Atlantis is the biggest venue for pop and rock concerts.

For clubbing, Slow Couch and Prejudice are two of the top places to go, but remember to wrap up warm for the Saturday night queues in the colder months.
