Well, this is quite a popular spot, during the whole year, but... the quay gets totally packed in spring, summer and early autumn, when the weather is still nice and warm and everyone is outside.
There are so many places to go to, some nicer than others, but the choice is good.

The list here includes:
ALO, ALO (have had only daily coffees there... decent place)
PLAZA DE TOROS (very nice place. No, NOT a typical tapas-place, but still, a good idea and the snacks they offer are great)
Irish Pub St. Patrick (still a popular spot for lots of foreigner who come here)
Dubliner (another Irish pub, though I have to admit that it is very, very, very different from the concept of pub - it's way too fancy, too posh, too stuck up; the interior is nice but the atmosphere inside... defies the whole concept of a pub: relaxed, laid-back place, for some drinks and music)

And of course, LA BODEGUITA DEL MEDIO, the Cuban bar&restaurant (yes, it is part of the world chain of La B del M).
IT IS REALLY NICE, but kind of expensive. They usually serve excellent cocktails, even though their mojito is not as good as it used to be. But, what attracts people here is the atmosphere. During weekends it is pretty fun, the music is nice and there is some dancing going on. This place is a bit posh, which I tend to dislike, but it is not bad, and can often mean "having a good time". Anyways, give the place a try if you're a fan of Latin music.

Directions: City Shopping Center (GTC), and the quay of the river Vardar
