Social culture and atmosphere is priority, with amazing concerts, home cooked meals and DJ sets as just a selection of the fantastic things you can do when you stay in our boutique hostel.
Cadiz is the oldest city in Europe. It is also the gateway to our favourite coastline in Spain. What else? Unlimited great seafood, relaxing city walks, laid back vibes and friendly locals. Oh yeah and Havana Cuba was designed to be an exact replica of the Cadiz beach front, so you can tick Cuba off your list while your down there. Not many cities can offer that.
If you have time for a day trip to Cordoba we highly recommend it. It’s the perfect place for old town wanderings, monument umming & aahing in the stunning Mezquita, and trying the Cordobese salmorejo. Definitely hop on over to Bicicleta bar because it’s cool! Enjoy the bridge. Find a “Use-it” map to get around, they are super helpful. Then get back over to Sevilla – the best city in the world.
Nothing beats a fine Sunday morning stroll around the Plaza del Museo fine art fair. It’s peaceful, tranquilo and delightful. Art hunters with a keen eye can often pick up good deals and a bit of haggling is great way to work up an appetite for a late breakfast.
Every Thursday morning, the early bird catches the………. useless piece of junk. That’s not why we come here though. Atmosphere is king, as locals, gypsies and society’s eccentrics gather to shout at each other, over-do the early morning beers and try and off-load their worthless crap on to other people. It’s an all round good time, lashings of banter, beers and bargain hunters. Come here for an off the tourist trail, locals experience. Maybe, just maybe, if you’re lucky, you might even pick up an old dusty lampshade.
This is where we go for early evening wines and the occasional chorizo platter. It’s trendy, simple and great for hanging out with your mates. Very homely décor with books, armchairs and a splattering of hipster paraphernalia welcome you in and make it hard to leave!
Don’t believe what anyone else tells you. This is the best place in Seville to see live flamenco. Yes it’s for tourists, but the level, consistency and quality of the artists that play here is unbeatable. If you have never seen flamenco, first and foremost we order you to come here and see for yourself. Your soul requires it. Then, and only then, may you go hunting for flamenco out on the back streets. Olé.
Los Martinez is a dirty, sleazy underground dive bar. Sounds good yeah? Well this also where you will probably discover the most authentic and spontaneous flamenco that has ever existed on planet earth. Things could kick off at any time between midnight and 8am, no rules apply.
Utopia discoteca keeps people’s feet moving, bodies spinning and slow jams grinding til the wee hours. Music ranges from reggaeton, to latino, cumbia, merengue or salsa. General dress code is smart. The building inside is a beautifully designed 3 floor club with options for all peoples.
Sala X is an urban underground concert hall with a decent plethora of live artists and DJ’s. It’s sufficient to keep us returning regularly to feed our ears and wiggle our feet, whether it’s Balkan beats, live blues or some late night house. Highly recommended if you want a proper night out.
Bilindo is an outdoors club, open late night and full of good looking, well dressed people. It is ,to be frank, on the pretentious side of fun; within the framework of social rules and etiquette that a true La Banda beast can’t be tamed by. However, if it is hot and you are in a group of mates, it is one of the considerably better options in Seville, which is why it managed to squeeze it’s way on to our exclusive and highly rated list of city selections.
Manhattan is a glamorous out-doors bar down on the banks of the Guadalquivir. We come here for Al fresco dancing, well loaded gin & tonics, booty shaking and some casual perving on the good looking local crowd during those hot, sweaty, never-ending summer nights.
Welcome to the next level, wave goodbye to everything you previously ate and drank. Cast away your memories of old dinners and luke-warm acidic wines. THIS IS TOP END. Yeah. But seriously top end. Cocktails and food here are beyond exquisite, but beware that you’re gonna pay for it.
