Amazing place, try the pajarete 1908 straight from the barrel. If you only came in for one, you'll quickly change your mind to stay for another. Unspoilt piece of drinking history, all reasonably priced. Also a treat to watch the guys fill 5 glasses with...More

Traditional bar with many barrels of local wines for Malaga. Bar tab is written on the wooden bar in the vibrant atmosphere just off the main road.

I absolutely love this little sherry bar. Great if you're not sure which you prefer too. The tapas is great, love the fresh prawns. It's an excellent experience and one that all sherry lovers really must check out when in Málaga.

This is a typical bodega. It is standing and it serves a limited number of tapas. It is not a restaurant.
