El Rinconcillo, Gravina 51 Hotel

El Rinconcillo


El Rinconcillo

What is it? The oldest bar in Seville, dating back to 1670, this minuscule spot is atmospherically lined with dusty bottles and hung with hams. Undoubtedly a tourist haunt, it’s still worth a visit to watch the aproned waiters deftly dishing up tapas and ice-cold fino.

Why go? This bar, for all its popularity, has fiercely resisted all attempts to modernise, and it’s one of the last places in town where your bill comes chalked on the countertop. Perfect for a glass of sherry and a plate of wafer-thin ham, it’s also fun to see if you can get the famously gruff waiters to crack a smile.
