On the Rocks

As this cool sports bar – Nightclub is based on the main street of Praia da Rocha just above the beach, nestled on top of the rocky cliffs the name ‘On The Rocks’ suits this bar to a tee.

This place is situated right in the centre of Praia da Rocha’s main strip, giving customers the most beautiful views of Praia da Rocha beach from their spacious sea view terrace.



On The Rocks owner, Walter is famous for his crazy personality and bushy mustache, and with his years of experience in the Algarve nightlife scene, he sure knows how to please a crowd. On The Rocks has a mixture of modern music played alongside some golden oldies, with cool DJ’s, a large dance floor and 2 separate seating areas this place is set up to cater for all and to carry the party on to the early hours of the morning.

Should your feet need a rest from all the dancing you have been doing then simply head to either of the outdoor seating areas, 1 situated on the main street to watch the world go by and 1 based at the back of the bar overlooking the beach at night, take your pick!
