EL TABERNACULO TAPAS BAR

In Granada, they still practice “free tapas” – you get a bite with every drink you order. El Tabernaculo perfects it, starting you with something as simple as toast with bacon and garlic aioli with your first drink. Get on to three or four glasses and they start frying quail eggs over local sweet chorizos. I recommend the bottle of vermouth with the handwritten label they keep hidden under the bar.

LOS DIAMANTES

This restaurant is a revelation in how to do fried food. Chipirones, sweetbreads, setas a la plancha, pescado frito, razor clams, gambas pil pil, and kumato tomatoes… Did I mention that was just for lunch? Welcome to Granada! The more you drink, the more you eat.

LA PUERTA DEL CARMEN

We feasted on artichokes with a sweetbread and foie terrine, a mixed plate of lambchops, papas fritas and pardon peppers as well as a simple dish of octopus with sea salt and smoked pimenton. No one walked out hungry, that’s for sure!

NIGHTLIFE

MAE WEST

A large, dimly lit bar, it features blacklights that light up your gintonics and some great live music. That was one of the most memorable moments of the night, letting loose with a little bit of dancing and quite a few more cocktails. Viva Granada!

ACCOMMODATIONS

PLAZA VIEJA HOTEL & LOUNGE

Great place to stay, particularly for couples. Very hard to get to, but worth the hunt. It has a spa on site, as well as a decent restaurant, but walking distance to some great local spots. Gorgeous accommodations.
