The Camborio
Discoteque and Dancing

El Camborio
Camino del Sacromonte,
Granada Spain


Whether you are in Granada for a few days or few months you will almost undoubtedly have the urge to let your hair down and go dancing to the early hours at some point. If you are with a group of friends and you are having a good time and you someone asks; "what shall we do now ?" or more probably "¿qué vamos a hacer ahora? Well, you can't go far wrong by going to the Camborio Discotheque in the Sacromonte... There is something for all of you, whether it be dancing on one of the dancefloors, sitting on the terrace admiring the magnificent panorama, propping up the bar meeting new people or maybe even smooching in one of the snugs.

A cave
There are many different places to hang out at the Camborio. At the top there is a bar and a dancefloor situated in the centre of a large garden which has tables and chairs on different levels. From any point of the garden you have a perfect view of the Alhambra. I am fairly sure that you could count the discotheques that have a better view using the fingers of only one hand, not only in Spain but in the entire world!

The discotheque is situated in Sacromonte which is famous for its caves. The Camborio is no exception and the lower area of the disco is a labyrinth of caves which include a dancefloor, a bar and some very small rooms cut into the side of the caves which offer a quieter, more intimate atmosphere. The entrance is a typical Andalusian patio. They also serve sandwiches and snacks.

Dancing on the terrace

The music is a mixture designed to satisfy the varied clientele, the most importance criterion for the choice of music it its danceability so you are likely to hear a pot pouri of current chart favourites, Spanish dance music and old dance classics. In fact, the resident DJ José, has been chosen by Vale Music, (one of the leading record labels in Spain), to put together a compilation album.

The Camborio doesn't open until 11pm and it doesn't start to get going until after 12. It normally closes at the time when most of us are normally having breakfast. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the Sacromonte from Plaza Nueva but most people get a taxi or hop on the Sacromonte bus which continues until 2am at the weekends. There is an entrance fee which is normally 600 pesetas or 4 euros and it entitles you to a free drink at the bar. There are special discounts available for groups and many organisations such as Spanish schools use the Camborio for their end of course parties. Phone for more details if you are interested.
