La Polivalente is a popular venue in the arty-yet-edgy Lagunillas area of the city.
The bar is a diamond in this somewhat rough neighbourhood located just behind Plaza de la Merced.
It’s a real melting pot for artistic types, with the venue offering a full schedule of shows and live music with an embracing bohemian vibe.
This is a great place if you want to immerse yourself in Malaga life and improve your Spanish.
