Some of the more famous bars on the beach are the Barge and the Coconut.
There are no clubs as such in Rimini, none which could actually be called clubs. There are only the usual bars which have added a dance floor. Some even have a music section playing salsa music, for example the Coconut. In order to go to a club that is “real”, you have to make a fifteen minutes drive to the neighboring town of Riccione. But there is one club which is situated on the borders of Rimini. It is called Carnaby’s. it is not at a major distance; people can even walk to it, but there still is a free shuttle bus that can be used.
