This little place is in the old town plaza. It's the ideal place for having your first drink drink of the night. Between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. it's always lively, in the winter and summer. You can spend the evening with someone you met there that night. The bar also has a permanent display of masks from all over the world, well ok, not all over the world.
This cafe-bar is the best one in Altea. Its location right in the town square is excellent, the service is delightful and the environment at any time of day or night is second to none. Here you can come and have your morning cup of coffee on the terrace to get a little sun on your face. You can also come for your after lunch cup of coffee, or have the liqueur that comes immediately afterwards. And, of course, at night a little bit of dancing and talking to new people before going out and doing something else is always nice. This is the ideal place for networking and meeting people to help you move around the Altea nightlife. That, incidentally is very interesting.
This is a classic place on San Juan beach. In this tavern, which mimics the style of a typical English pub, you can try the Flamingo potatoes (delicious with meat sauce), stroganoff, meatloaf, curry (chicken and beef) or herring sandwich. All, of course, washed down with a good pint of Guinness. The portions are small but adequate and the average price is € 4. You can not book tables in advance.

This is one of the most characteristic pubs in Elche El Raval, where you can have mojitos, teas or a combination. It often becomes a stage of cultural activities in the city. It's a small place, so in "rush hour" at weekend it is difficult to find place. If you however succeed, the effort will be worth it. The decor is minimalist decor.
The beach bar Carpe Diem is one of the best places to visit in Jávea. It is open during the summer season on the Benissero Beach, halfway between the beaches of gravel and Arenal. It is a perfect place to relax, enjoy a drink after a swim on the beach, eat a good paella or drink a mojito. All in a place with great views, good service and very reasonable prices.
The Divine Altea Lounge is a carefully decorated place that's right on the Altea promenade. On their chalkboards they offer 2.50 euro breakfasts, and 2 euro Heinekens. This is a great option for getting coffee after lunch or during lunch during this cold winter. The furniture is comfortable and beautiful. Also, you'll get a free glass of something sweet to enjoy.

Open daily from 10 am-4:00 a.m. It has an American style kitchen and a menu with prices between 10 and 20 E. It has wheelchair access and disabled toilets
The quiet coastal village of Altea might seem like an unlikely spot for a craft beer brewery (and it is), but ve's complaining? After a few hours out in the hot Spanish sun, you could use a cold, tasty beer and Cervezas Althaia Artesana is definitely the best places around.
We stopped by the store Saturday morning and were greeted by Jorge, the brewery young, passionate owner and head brewmaster. He welcomed us in and gave us a full tour of the facilities (they're small, so the informal tour only takes around 15 or 20 minutes) including the fermentation tanks, the boilers, and the supply rooms, and also gave us an overview of how the beers were made and ingredients they use (exclusively Belgian malts, American and British hops, etc.). He even showed us a special batch of smoked ale he was making for himself in the back!
Afterwards came the good part: sampling the beer. Cervezas Althaia Artesana has three main beers available: a Blonde Ale, a Brown Ale, and an IPA. The IPA, in typical Spanish style, was super-aromatic and refreshing without going overboard on the bitterness while the ales were refreshing and smooth, perfect for a post-beach pint. We sampled a few of the brews while chatting with Jorge about life in Altea, the reception of his beers among the locals, and the best local spots to hit the beach.
All the beers are available for purchase in the store (and Jorge keeps a selection on ice if you'd like to drink them on the spot) or in a lot of the popular local restaurants like Ca Jaume, La Claudia, San Miguel, or the Oustau de Altea, among many others. If you're getting a bit bored of the beach and want to try some great beer in Altea, I'd really recommend visiting Jorge over at Cervezas Althaia Artesana. Enjoy!
