This place is well worth a visit. The brunette and myself visited, she'd been there before and thought I'd enjoy the unusual setting. She was right. Over fifteen barrels of sherry. Plain wooden bar that looks as if it was fashioned from pieces of the...More

This bar has no pretensions and does not need them. It has limited hours, and is an aperitif venue I assume. The staff are businesslike rather than friendly, but that adds to the atmosphere. You stand at the bar and choose from the line of...More

Fascinating experience, vast selection of sherries and great to try the varieties. Do not rub out the price when they write it on the bar, this is your tab.

Travel back in time to the 19th Century at this bar where the waiters write your commands on the table with a piece of chalk as it used to be. Drink a glass of "pajarete" (Malaga wine) and enjoy the atmosphere while you scrutinize the...More

The experience is the whole thing. The owner prides himself being the original thing. There are more locals doing what's been done for well over a century. There is Victoria beer for those who want to visit without tasting the fortified wine.

I think it would be open on the 24th December, but you should check the website, if they have one. Well worth a visit and a few glasses of their wines and sherries. Extremely reasonable prices.
