“ Location: Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain „
Lineker's Tenerife is another one of the bars you must visit if you venture to Playa De Las Americas as it's one of the main spots and one of the livliest later on in the night. Although it is a sports bar, its whole focus isn't just on sport, you wont' walk into Lineker's ONLY to find sport up everywhere. They do have several plasmas which show Sport from all around the world, but there is certainly more to Lineker's than just Sport.
The bar staff in Lineker's are probably some of the most entertaining and liveliest I've seen. They are always showing off bar tricks and getting everyone involved in drinking games etc. they even let customers go behind the bar! There's something different most nights in the bar and you always find yourself having a laugh.
The DJ's are good too and play a vast mix of music from Dance to Electro to Pop to R 'n' B to Hip Hop and many many more. There's pretty much something for every taste. There are a few podiums dotted around Lineker's if you do want to get up there and dance. There are a few different seating areas too around the bar and dancefloor if you want to rest your feet!
You will see on the walls in Lineker's several photographs of the Bar staff with a range of different celebrities who have all been to Lineker's Tenerife. I remember seeing Coleen Rooney on there along with many others, apparently there are several celebs who pay Lineker's a visit every Summer so you may even be lucky to cathc a glimpse while you're there!
Lineker's is pretty big once you're inside and you actually have a few bars to choose from. There's the main Large Central Show Bar, A Cocktail Bar and an extra bar which is situated in the Games room along with a pool table and other games. There is also an Outdoor Terrace which is nice to venture out to with a cocktail on those hot Summer nights! The bar is actually fully air conditioned though thank goodness as it can get quite busy in there later in the night, so I never found myself melting in there!
The prices of the drinks are about the same as most bars in Tenerife to be honest, about 3 Euros for a pint and 4 or 5 Euros for a cocktail etc.
If you are having a Hen or Stag night or even a Birthday in Lineker's you can let them know before you travel there and book one of their packages which usually includes your own VIP area, champagne, banners, games & photos.
The only gripe I have is about where Lineker's is situated. It is on the strip where all the main bars and clubs are and when you are walking to it you get absoloutely hounded with promotional staff from all of the other bars trying to get you to come in for a drink. It literally will take you about 15 minutes to walk along a strip that is only about 500 metres long because of all the hassle you get. But other than that Lineker's is fab and not to be missed if you are planning a visit to Las Americas!
