Outside entertainment MUST finish by midnight. These establishments must have a licence and keep their noise levels sensible, and the police do check I have seen them.
There are 3 bars in the area which have sound proofing and special licences to continue their music until somewhere between 3 ? 5am (depending on their licence)
Highland Padi ? Los Gigantes
Highland Padi ? Playa Arena
El Granero ? Playa Arena
Organised events in Los Gigantes Square or Puerto Santiago Plaza by Carnival or Fiesta commissions, or any of the local charities have to apply for a licence from the Town Hall. It depends on the licence what time the event has to finish, (sometimes it finishes when the last person staggers home) and there is generally no control over noise levels, but as it has been stated by many ? this is a holiday resort and everyone has to be catered for.
Get your dancing shoes out (or your ear plug ready) for the event this Sat 31st Aug 2008 in Los Gigantes. It should be a cracking night. I have seen all these guys before, I guarantee they will have everyone up dancing.
