Eating and drinking your way around Seville is one of the best parts about visiting the city.
It’s estimated that there are about 3,000 tapas bars in Seville, each one with its own flair and personality. Add that to the countless rooftop and cocktail bars, and you’ve got a city full of fantastic eats and drinks. Part of the fun of visiting Seville is trying as bars as possible! However, a number that big can be hard to narrow down. We did the hard work for you and came up with this list of the 10 best bars in Seville of all time, in no particular order. Whether you’re here for a short stay or plan on staying indefinitely, we hope you’ll try as many as possible!
1. Casa Ricardo
Seville’s Alameda de Hercules and the surrounding area are filled with hip, happening places to eat and drink. However, if we had to pick a favorite, it would be Casa Ricardo. Not much has changed here since it first opened in 1898, but the old-world feel is charming rather than stuffy. Join the locals at the bar and order a glass of sherry—perfect for washing down their sliced-to-perfection Iberian ham.
Address: Calle Hernán Cortés, 2
2. Álvaro Peregil La Goleta
Don’t blink as you’re walking down Calle Mateos Gago. Otherwise, you might miss La Goleta, a tiny hole-in-the-wall bar that makes up in personality what it lacks in space. The current owner, Álvaro Peregil himself, is the son of a flamenco singer and the grandson of the bar’s original founder. Álvaro’s grandfather was the first to produce the city’s now famous orange wine—right here in this bar! This unique local staple as well as their small yet delicious tapas menu make this one of our favorite bars in Seville.
Address: Calle Mateos Gagos, 20

4. Vinería San Telmo
Popular among locals and visitors alike, Vinería San Telmo is one of our favorite bars in Seville for many reasons. First, their tapas are to die for. Second, they have a fabulous wine list, with dozens of wines available by the glass. Owners Juan Manuel and Reyes take great pride in hand-selecting each wine, and they’re more than happy to recommend one that will pair excellently with your food. If you’re looking for great food and even better wine, this is where you need to go!

7. Bar Sacramento
Want to get off the beaten path? Bar Sacramento, while a bit of a hike from the major sights in Seville, is well worth it. This no-frills local favorite does some of the best pork in a city (and country!) that’s famous for it. Simplicity is the name of the game here, so join the locals at the bar and enjoy traditional Andalusian tapas at their finest. (This is also one of the best bars in Seville for travelers who follow a gluten-free diet!)

8. Las Teresas
Step back into the storied Seville of the past at Las Teresas, where the city’s history comes alive. Memorabilia from Holy Week, the April Fair and various bullfights line the walls of this local favorite, which is always packed. They boast one of the best sherry selections in a city famous for the fortified wine. If you’re looking for one of the best bars in Seville to truly immerse yourself in local life, you can’t get much better than this.

Part traditional tapas joint and part modern gastrobar, Eslava is one of the most popular bars in Seville for good reason. They pride themselves on creating delicious dishes using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Their award-winning tapas and raciones are some of the most unique in Seville, and the atmosphere here is always fun and exciting.
Address: Calle Eslava, 3
10. La Azotea Vinos y Más
Since their original location opened in 2010, La Azotea has quickly become one of the most popular bars in Seville. In fact, they now boast four separate locations! However, our favorite would have to be their Conde de Barajas location, La Azotea Vinos y Más, which features a sleek wine bar. Their menu features classic Mediterranean dishes with touches of fusion for an international flair. Pair your dish with one of their dozens of excellent Spanish wines!
Address: Conde de Barajas, 12
