Surrealism in Seville
This unique little bar is hidden on a side street near Plaza Alfalfa and its bizarre décor strikes as soon as you walk through the door. Figurines of the Virgin Mary and Jesus oversee the goings-on amidst salvaged church pieces, with cheese-lovers enjoying the Seventies Spanish music and the sudden flamenco performances from ladies at the bar. Drinks aren’t cheap but they range from cocktails and shots to beer. Sip on a Blood of Christ (La Sangre de Cristo) cocktail and soak up the atmosphere.
