Especially if you are visiting Seville during the summertime, a cocktail can be the perfect way to cool you down and get you through the remainder of the museums. In Spain, cocktails are not usually served as commonly as beer and wine. That doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find a cocktail with the perfect level of sweetness and sourness. However, you have to know where to look. Even though bars have an entire liquor stock, they don’t make cocktails for the most part. Don’t be deceived. Here are Seville’s top 12 cocktail bars.

La Bicicleteria

Firstly, of Seville’s top 12 cocktail bars is La Bicicleteria . This bar is full of colour, infectious energy, and tasty cocktails based in Feria. So set the scene, there are lampshades made out of flamenco dresses, seats made from bicycles, a dog with dreadlocks and most importantly, cocktails made with love. We recommend the mojito; it’s refreshing, sweet and only costs €6. An insider’s tip is to bring cash; this bar does not accept the card. There is an Atm here if needs be.

The Second Room

The second room is a small but lively cocktail bar. This fully stocked cocktail bar does not sell tapas, just cocktails. Old fashioned tasted sharp; the Seville orange flavour came through. Other popular drinks are white Russians and Daquiris. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and if you are staying near the cathedral, you are only a two-minute walk away.

Donaire house

An Authentic Bodega. Donaire house is a buzzing restaurant with an elaborate cocktail menu. If you visit the Alcazar palace or the cathedral, this restaurant is very close. Not only are they serving out of this world tapas, but they are also keeping the people in Seville refreshed and happy with a cocktail in hand. We recommend trying the Moscow mule. Served in a classic copper cup, the Moscow mule is fiery, sweet, and the lime juice brings balance to this drink.

Bar Patanchon 

This warm bodega is next on our list of Seville’s top 12 cocktail bars. Looking down to la Giralda tower, this restaurant has a pleasant buzz. Furthermore, the wooden furnishings are quaint, and the walls are covered in historical photographs. We couldn’t forget to mention the Sangria: it is fresh and uses local fruit. For a glass of Sangría, order a “copa”, and for a jug, order a “jarra”. Equally important is the celebrated Rebujito. Made with manzanilla wine, a soft drink (7up or lemonade) and infused with fresh mint, this Andalucian drink is usually drank during Feria.
