No one will believe you when you tell them about this hidden away gem. Completely stuck in a time warp. Sells sherry only with a few olives thrown in free. Old posters on the high walls. Crammed with people on a Friday night. Informal, musty,...More

A sherry bar where time seems to have stood still for decades - if not centuries. Five different sherries on offer by the glass from barrels, dark interior and no pretentions. Perfect for somewhere different to go for a drink.

I recommande for a stop to discover Sherry with very good tapas for a low price. If you expect to find other drink don't go there you will find only tap water ;)

Visiting this quirky sherry bar was an unforgettable experience. The whole atmosphere is vintage and really cool. The prices are pretty good and the sherry is even better. If you like sherry this place is a must visit.

A great place for sherry, like going back to the 1930's. Excellent sherry, bar staff not very talkative. House rules - no smoking, no photography, no tipping, no spitting and no stroking the cat. Great.

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
