The 4 Best Things to do at Night in Bilbao

Teatro Arriaga

The Teatro Arriaga is the cultural center of Bilbao’s nightlife. Opened in 1890, the theater has since been rebuilt due to severe flooding in 1985.

Designed by Joaquín Rucoba and named after Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga, a local Spanish composer often dubbed the ‘Spanish Mozart’, the theater also hosts excellent opera performances. And the building itself is an impressive piece of architecture; Rucoba took inspiration from the Paris Opera House, and the façade and polygonal towers are particularly impressive, as is the resplendent interior.
