Plaza Nueva is the best area for pinchos bars in Bilbao,and maybe one of the best in Spain. There are about 25 bars around the outside of the square with tables towards the middle.

Plaza Nueva is a space for families to relax, people walk their dogs and children play. The apartments surrounding the square are very expensive and generally passed down from one family member to another. Apartments with the smallest windows are the least expensive.

Nice place with typical "tascas", really nice to do some pintxos in the different places around. There are a small market on Sundays (Mainly with 2nd hand books) quite nice and charming. Perfect to go with friends and "potear" (the word that in the Basque Country you use when you are eating some pintxos in different bars).

Not really new, dates from early 19th century. Totally arcaded, with a variety of small restaurants serving tapas or dinner under the arcades. Sort of touristy but still nice. A very safe feeling area, with lots of local families out in the early evening.
