The #Ensenada nightlife: partying and great atmosphere

The R1 corner in Ensenada is always a party. Always a crowd at the most popular corner in Ensenada. During the day, sports bars to drink a few beers with friends. At night, clubs with the best DJs of the moment. Incredible atmosphere! 

The R1 is the code name for one of the most popular corners in Ensenada, where Ruiz Street and 1st Street come together. Everyone coming to chill and hang out with friends starts -or ends up- at the R1. On these streets are the most popular bars and clubs of the city like Papas&Beer and Hussong’s, but also many restaurants and shops to take home a nice souvenir from  Ensenada.  An irresistible magnet for those looking to enjoy the nice weather in a great atmosphere.

Fun starts in the morning in #Ensenada

At the R1 nights are long and mornings come sunny and slow. From 10 am onwards the R1 comes to life: to the sound of music the shades in the terraces go up, screens broadcast sports and beer starts to flow out of the barrel, cold and foamy. If you came on a cruiseship you are lucky: before noon it is already difficult to find a good table, people go in and out of stores, the streets are buzzing with activity. Snacks, nachos and tacos come out. Bar food and cold beer. The party just began.

#Ensenada nightlife, a fun night out!

Fun is guaranteed for the rest of the day and well into the night. Some come, some go. Live music in the sunset as bars and clubs get ready for the coolest nights of the Pacific Ocean. The party gets going till the early hours of the day with music by the best DJs every weekend.

If you are visiting the city stop by the liveliest corner in Ensenada. The perfect place to hang out and have fun with friends. Chose your favorite atmosphere to eat or dance: traditional spots, cool bars. You’ll feel right at home. And don’t worry about a thing: Spanish and English are spoken in every bar and the R1 is safe so you never run into trouble.
