“Searched and found it”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Just so Spanish and not tourist type place. Very classy. Liked the live buskers, the coffee houses and people watching.

“Great little square”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

This is a lovely little square, lined by several bars, tapas bars, cafe's etc. Many of them are great!

It is literally around the corner from the main square.

The little side streets around this area have lots of hidden gems as well.

Worth spending a good few hours enjoying the ambiance and alcohol!

“The Gin Tonic is the most fashionable drink on the Plaza de Los Chinorros”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Gin Tonic is now replacing the VINO in Spain. There are also a specialty gin tonic bars all over Spain. At the Plaza there are two at least. Gin Tonic is NOT served any more in a straight glass. It is served in a large balloon glass with large ice blocks to avoid it to melt too fast. The barman never uses a measure but you may ask in to slow down the large pouring of a Gin of your choice (probably over 50/100 different brands selection even one with SAFRAN) ... then he will add very slowly the tonic that sometimes is more expensive than the Gin itself, a zest of lime will add the final touch! ... I found out that the Australian CASCADE Tonic in a small can is the best! ... so bring it along! :) ... Gin Bars are always full of very attractive women but drunkenness and misbehavior is zero tolerance in Spain.
Enjoy your stay I may join you when invited ...

“A nice find.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

A lovely area to sit and people watch. A typically Spanish Square full of tapas bars all with outdoor terraces to sit back and relax with a nice meal or tapas and a drink.

“Enjoy the atmosphere with some tapas”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I love this part of the town, because it has it Spanish old town feeling, little streets bring you into a little square with some street musicians entertaining you and lots of people around sitting in the terraces of the bars and restaurants around.

You cannot go wrong choosing any of the bars/restaurants to enjoy some wine and tapas. Come for a romantic dinner and return again to try out a different place and find your favorite!
