Cervecería Alemana information
If you’ve only got time to stop at one bar on Plaza de Santa Ana, let it be this classic cervecería (beer bar), renowned for its cold, frothy beers and a wider selection of Spanish beers than is the norm. It’s fine inside, but snaffle a table outside in the plaza on a summer’s evening and you won’t be giving it up without a fight.
The bar opened in 1904 and this was one of Hemingway’s haunts – neither the wood-lined bar nor the bow-tied waiters have changed much since his day.
