After Dinner, Dancing, Seville,

Bilindo

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.

After Dinner, Bars, Seville,

Second Room

We really like to come here for intimate social cocktails in small groups or with one of our lovers. You can pull up a nice corner seat and really test the barman’s skills out because he knows what he’s doing when it comes to mixology – a talent seldom found in so many places that claim they “do” cocktails.

El Pinton

El Pinton aka Mr Paint. These guys have a shmorgeous board of wonders for your mouth. Start by getting stuck in to the cocktail menu and once you’re suitably sloshed, roll your way on to the a la carte tapas. We like the ceviche and we think they are kings of arroz. If nothing more the interior design is airy, fresh and mega trendy so it’s a great place to come and relax while you whittle down that travel fund.

Homu

A trendy sushi place with nice outdoor terrace in a cracking location. The sushi isn’t groundbreaking but it certainly hits the spot. Truth be told though, we always come for the yaki udon noodles coz we’re suckers for those big old wormy worm style noods layered with goodies. Also whatever you do don’t miss the gyozas – some damn tasty shizzle.

Breakfast & Coffee, Food and Drink, Seville,

La Cacharreria

“ The Catch” as we at La Banda have fondly named it, is cute, quirky, homely. It is also very small. Run by a team of chicas, you can notice the womans touch. They’ve got speciality coffees, homemade smoothies and freshly baked cakes among many great breakfast items. Come and get settled in to the curious café, but bring some patience with you because their organization is poor at the best of times.

Eslava

The truth is that every time we come here we get so involved with the wonderful menu of wines, and stock up so heavily on the tasty array of tapas, that by the time we’ve arisen from the hazy food coma later that evening, we can’t really remember anything about the place. That’s gotta be a good sign!

Arte y Sabor

Arte y Sabor is run by a friendly team of Alameda locals. They proudly fly the flag as the go to spot for all things vegetarian and they do it with style. Tasty, fresh and green treats decorate the Arabic themed menu. Nice outdoor seating gives way to the laidback Alameda square. Great for lunch and a nice glass of white wine.

Food and Drink, Seville, Traditional,

Bodega Santa Cruz

Bodega Santa Cruz is the lord of the traditional tapas kingdom. They don’t care about anything because they won their title back in the year 1300, they got their classic wooden bar, they got their antique deep fat frier, they got their team of camareros, they just keep on winning. Expect shouting, tapas slinging, beer fights and large servings of banter. Everything and we mean everything is as cheap as chips – like seriously bloody cheap.

Gastro-market Lonja del Barranco

The “Mercado” is a wonderful way to dip your toe in to the world of Spanish tapas. Row’s of bright market stalls jovially offer up all the seafood, croquetas and jamon that you could possible dream of. Never ending beer and wine flows as standard. Out front an open air, gin & tonic bar pumps out music, and Seville’s local crowd gathers to make sure they get seen by the right people.

Casa Paco

Casa Paco is a simple and classic meeting place with nice views on the street across the Alameda square. Sometimes it’s not about hunting about the best spot, sometimes it’s just about simple glorious life without catches. Get yourself a goats cheese and honey tapita, maybe some grilled aubergines, a couple of ice cold beers, sit back, relax and just enjoy Spain. That’s Casa Paco.
