Bar La Concha information
This place is dedicated to the worshipping of the actress Sara Montiel: the walls groan with over 250 photos of the sultry star. Born in 1928, Montiel bared all on the silver screen in an era that condemned nudity to shameful brazenness – hence 'la concha ' (a word commonly used in the Spanish slang) can be read as a sly salute to the female genitalia. La Concha used to be a largely gay and transvestite haunt, but anyone is welcome and bound to have fun – especially when the drag queens come out to play. Moroccan ownership means you're as likely to see belly dancing nowadays.
