For being such a simple looking bar Leonardo's is actually one of my favourites in Playa de Las Americas, Tenerife because I never fail to have a good time there. It is well known for being the "starter bar" for your night out and a lot of people visit Leonardo's first before they go anywhere else. Whether you visit Leonardo's early or late on in the night, the atmosphere is still great. It is actually even open during the daytime and regular major sporting events like football games etc. on their big screen if that's your sort of thing.
On a night time, usually from 9pm onwards there is Live entertainment which is always fantastic. They have some great acts, the Wildboyz are my personal favourites - they are really entertaining. I enjoyed going to Leonardo's most nights for the entertainment on offer. When the Live entertainment isn't on, the music played in the bar is great too. Now and again there is karaoke, but other than that they play a range of different types of music from Pop to R 'n' B to Indie, Dance, Hip Hop etc. etc. there's something for everyone.
The bar itself has been refurbished to a high standard and it now looks very trendy, clean and modern. It is also fully air conditioned and there is seating both inside and outside and the stage for the Live entertainment is outside too. The bar staff and even the DJ are all very friendly and welcoming and make you feel at home in their bar. There is a small dancefloor inside, but in this bar most people tend to stay seated for watching the entertainment etc.
Leonardo's sell a wide range of drinks and they mix some fantastic cocktails! My personal favourite being their Cheeky Vimto, their Cosmopolitan is quite nice too. There prices are reasonable and are about the same as everywhere else - Cocktails cost around 4-5 Euros.The bar is never too busy as a lot of people tend to visit Leonardo's for their first couple of drinks and then move on elsewhere. There have been nights when I have stayed in Leonardo's until closing time and it's been great actually, so you don't HAVE to move on elsewhere if you would rather stay at Leonardo's, you will still have a great time. Conveniently though, if you do want to move on elsewhere, the bar is located very close to all of the other popular bars and nightclubs like Tramps & Veronicas.
Leonardo's can arrange special VIP prices and offers for Stag and Hen do's or even if you just want to have your own private party - they have more details about this on their website. But basically I'd recommend Leonardo's to anyone, it's a great place for starting your Tenerife fun!
