Cervecería Alemana

Bar in Sol, Santa Ana & Huertas

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.

Opened in 1904, this was one of Hemingway’s haunts – neither the wood-lined bar nor the bow-tied waiters have changed much since his day.
