Visited this bijou bar whilst on a four day break to Benalmadena. As it was a wet winter night the place was very quiet but that didn't stop the owners, Mark and Genina, from creating a fantastic atmosphere, friendly conversation and phenomenal gins! The beautiful Genina proved as adept at banter as she was at mixing gins and Mark's easy... More

The most amazing cocktail bar situated in a small square. The owner makes his way around the tables chatting to everyone and the bar staff gave options on which cocktails to try.

Bar Ole is in a great location on the popular Plaza De Ole in Benalmadena Costa. As well as having an extensive a la carte menu they also provide the very popular menu del dia for the competitive price of 11. 70 euros per person and that includes a drink as well. There is a choice of about 8 different... More

Anett & Richard are a lovely couple & go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We tried a few different cocktails, all good. Good luck guys with your new venture!! Located in Plaza Ole, accessible from the beach promenade or down the hill from Av Antonio Machado. Highly recommended.

Great selection of cocktails. The Black Cat Brandy Alexander are both worth trying. The owners are very pleasant. Will definitely return

On our second night in Benalmadena we arrived in square ole by chance. A lovely quiet square just off the main strip along the seafront. We went straight to bar ole. It stood out from the others in the square with a nice relaxed feel to it. Black tables and chairs with cushions and candles on the tables. This made... More

Ended up visiting here 3 nights out of our 10 night stay! Lovely looking cocktails, and tasted just as much too! The owners are pleasant, they go out of their way to make conversation with you too which is always nice! Even when rushed off their feet with how busy it got, they still persevered and battled on. I certainly... More
