Casino Torrequebrada

This casino nightclub usually has evening entertainment on Friday and Saturday. A passport is required and you must be over 18 years old to enter the gaming area of the casino, which is open daily from 3 pm (from 9 pm in August); there's also a bit of a dress code (no sports clothes or sneakers).

La Sala Banús

This is one of Marbella's most popular nightspots for "older" clubbers (those out or nearly out of their twenties). Dine in before you dance to the live music.

Olivia Valére

Marbella's most famous nightspot, with an impressive celebrity guest list, attracts a sophisticated crowd with its roster of big-name DJs and stylish surroundings that resemble a Moorish palace. To get here, head inland from the town's mosque (it's easy to spot). Doors open at midnight (daily in July and August; Thursday through Saturday only, September–June) and close at 6 am.
