We visited this bar after seeing some great recommendations online and in the Lonely Planet. I was expecting a fun, over embellished bar with some cocktails. What we got was the most miserable bar man I have ever seen, who chain smoked throughout, making the bar smell horrendous, and who did not want to be of any assistance at all.... More

Heavily decorated with religious decor and portraits - some with real items such as shawls, flowers - The portrait of the child was that of our bartender! The specialty drink is the Blood of Christ! Such a fun and unique place

I'm not sure that I'd want to make a night of it at El Garlochi, but I wouldn't have missed having a drink there. The decoration is wholly religious; a statue of Christ dominates one end of the bar, and the BVM the other. The background music is, if not religious, pleasingly lugubrious. Somewhere incense was burning. The house cocktail... More

Something different to say the least! A religious bar, nearly a must see. Walls decorated with religious paraphernalia. The old Bar tender (think he could be owner) was friendly, and didn't mind all the patrons taking photographs and selfies of all the quirky decor. He had next to no English though. Stayed for 1 drink and was probably enough. If... More

What a laugh..almost didn't get in because we were laughing. Owner chain smoking behind the bar but no smoking allowed for clientele. His pictures of art canvasses are unique in that some are adorned with clothes. The owner gave out to locals that us foreigners were laughing too much but had no problem charging veinticuarto (24 euro ) for 4... More

First of all, I did not stumble on El Garlochi Bar by chance. I knew about its existence beforehand and I happen to know that it is not the only one of its kind in Sevilla. Also, Sevilla is not the only city having these camp/trash religious bars. One of my favorite Paris bars is Le Lèche Vin, in Bastille/Rue... More

We went there one evening and had a blast. The interior is over the top, quirky and very tongue in cheek. You have to go to experience something different. I would recommend it to everyone with a good sense of humor.

Well we went here late at night! You got to see it to believe it. They called it a religious bar, crazy place very lively, unbelievably funny. Quirky place quirky people but worth the visit. I enjoyed it. Got to go if your in Seville and make your own mine up

Total rip off €6 for 2 bottles of cruzcampo he should be waring a mask, just awful. An embarrassment to Andalucia. I have lived here for 22 years and can't think of a place that rips off foreigners to this degree. Having told him about his usury practices I was subsequently banned, a unique honour which I am very proud... More
