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 juicy tortilla de patatas made by the owner's mother, and croquetas with various fillings, like béchamel and prawns (carabineros) or 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.
