When in Malaga, one must visit this bodega bar!!! This is one of the oldest wine cellars in Malaga decorated with lots of wine barrels signed by the famous stars and some literary giants and cool vintage posters. I love the ambiance, the decor is very traditional and romantic. It's a fun place to come with a group of friends and the price is reasonable too. Yes it's a bit touristy but it's also frequented by the locals. The maze of patios is beautifully constructed, it's a great spot to enjoy the authentic Andalucian night life. Me encanta!!!!
The four stars are basically because of the great time we had there.
The service is borderline rude but the place itself and the ambiance is awesome.
If I remember right we ate some cured ham or something like that but the best part was that a friend of mine looks like a famous local chef who was awarded with his first Michelin star and we where pretending that my friend was the chef. People moved to let us sit, everybody was clapping (2 ovations of 1 minute and about 120 people clapping), it was just insane.
Nice place to party if you can take the rude and super slow service.
My friend and I stumbled here after a recomendation from some locals we met earlier in the day. He said for great wine and ambiance, go here and if we do, to try the sweet wine. After snagging a table outside under the tented patio, in front of some festive wine barrels, we asked our handsome and friendly waitor for some of the signature "sweet wine". Well I must say this was not my cup of tea ( or wine) at all! Not sure why I expected to like it anyway since I am not a fan of sweet wines to begin with but this wine was even worse than just typical sweetness. It tasted sweet with a strong hint of licorice or something. Both my friend and I tried respectfully to put the wine back but we couldn't. Instead, we finished our night off there with some white wine which was much better.
Unfortunately, our time was cut short here because the bar closes early during the week, it was around midnight but to us, that was more like our 10 o'clock as they days are delayed in Europe. We exited through the restaurant and it was a beautiful sight- very cozy with stone walls and a wine cellar feel. If I had more time in Malaga instead of the two nights we spent, I would have dined here for sure.
During a visit to Malaga the famous Bodega El Pimpi is a must. It is a beautiful traditional tapas restaurant and offers a wide choice of this typical Spanish speciality in a very attractive setting. The tapas are very good and the service is very friendly.
