Fodor's Review

Done up like an Irish pub, with large wooden barrels serving as tables, this charming bar (owned by a select club) has more than a century of history. There's great vermouth and draft beer, along with food specialties such as salmorejo (a thick, cold tomato soup similar to gazpacho), a juicy tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelet) made by the owner's mother, and croquetas—deep-fried croquettes with various fillings, including béchamel and prawns (carabineros) and strong, aromatic goat cheese from the North (Cabrales). Tables at the back (you have to dip under the counter to get there) are quieter. Expect to hear a good selection of jazz.
