all: "the bars never officially close" Sevilla Nightlife Tip by Faracy

Sevilla Nightlife: 84 reviews and 110 photos

Bars in Sevilla are everywhere, and they stay open as long as there are people in them, or as long as someone feels like serving them.
Not long ago, one could drink in the streets, and down by the river BYOB type of thing.. This has been officially banned, but I still see it going on. What hasn´t been banned are the crowds spilling out into the streets in front of bars, and pretty much the whole neighborhood.. Bars here must spend a fortune on those tall glasses, and everyone walks off with them.
Beer on tap is very cheap, usually about 1 ?, that is if you drink the local Cruz Campo.. I liken it to Spanish Pabst Blue Ribbon.. maybe not as good. Bottles run about 2-3?, and nearly anything can be found here if you look... its so funny to see Budweiser on the import list..and to see people pay import price for it.
Mixed drinks are strong, half a high ball of liquor is the norm, then add your own mixer.. most places this will run you 4-5?.
Wine is also cheap, a favorite amongst women seems to be Tinto con Limon... red wine with lemonade... I´ve tried it, and its pretty decent... about1? as well.
I´m not a drinker, but I watch other people, so these are observations..:-)
