  • Flaherty's Irish Bar: Where the Tourists always End up

    by blint Written Jan 25, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It boasts being the first Irish bar in Sevilla or maybe even Spain and is well located right next to the Cathedral. It is a large bar with an outside terrace looking on to the Cathedral. For some reason all tourists or foreigners living here always end up here!

    You can come here to get your pints in or for a bite to eat. The menu offers a mix of Irish and Spanish food and all the waiters speak English very well, if in fact they are not from an English speaking country.

    You can get an 'Irish Breakfast' which is basically known in other areas as an English Breakfast or a fry up. On the Spanish side of things you can get an Iberian Pork steak.

    It shows English, Scottish and Spanish football.

    There are a wide range of International beers on Draught.

  • Boss International Party in Betis street: What to do on Wednesday night in Sevilla

    by justmanu Written Sep 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's really the place to be on Wednesday night in Sevilla for many reasons. The only place on that day where you can dance from midnight till late!, you can also dress casual and normally you dont have to pay an entrance fee.

    The atmospheres it's so great mix of people from everywhere, starting from Sevillanos till australians!!. It's located in a very Famous street called BETIS. You can easily reach that street by taxi or just walking from the city center.

    The drinks are so long comparing to my city's bars! + there are diferent cocktails and stuff. It's probably the place to be in Sevilla on Wednesday nights.

    The Club is called: Boss, and on Wednesday it's the International Party there. Erasmus students, americans, spanish, french, germans, etc etc... :)

    Dress Code: On the international party on Wednesday night at Boss you can dress casual with any kind of shoes or t-shrit. try not to wear sandals because you get cut with broken glasses.

    La Carboneria: Flamenco and anything goes...

    by fairy_dust Updated Jul 7, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Carboneria is a flamenco bar hidden in the Barrio Santa Cruz. It's filled with both locals and tourists and what I love most about it is that you never know what to expect when it comes to entertainment. The flamenco show starts at around 11 and lasts about an hour or so, but after the show is over the locals stick around and jam. Most of the time, the jam sessions involved flamenco, but one night there was someone singing latin jazz standards, and occasionally there was a classical pianist. Another time, a group of teen boys sitting in a hidden corner close to the door started knocking out flamenco beats on a table and singing.

    Since I was studying flamenco dance at the time, I would often get the urge to get up and dance when the music was particularly good. And when I did dance, I always had a great time and the locals loved me! I would often get shouts of "baila baila!" and "ole!", which would encourage me even more. I always had a great time at La Carboneria.

    The bar can get crowded and stuffy at times, but there is a terrace behind the stage where you can get some fresh air.

    Dress Code: You can wear what you want, there is no dress code. Most people just wear casual clothes.

    Calle Betis: When the Sun Goes Down

    by lotafro Written Apr 9, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Between to bridges that cross the Guadalquivir River lies Betis Street. We find ourselves in the popular quarter of Triana. It’s a must to stop by this street in Seville. Start off with some fried fish accompanied by a glass of Manzanilla wine to wet the stomach well, afterward, let the night take lead...
    On Betis Street the nightlife is more than a reality. Its multi-themed bars enjoy a privilegded position, and that’s why, lots of young people take advantage and go out on this side of town, in an attempt to unwind from responsibilities and let their free-willed spirits run wild.
    From twelve o'clock at the night, the street exhales with commotion, racket and merriment. Meanwhile some folks enter bars for having tapas and beer, and others, mostly students, with a more humble acquisitive level, administer their budget by doing a "botellón" right on the street, in company of the color that the night paints by the waters of the Guadalquivir. It’s evident, this ritual is better received with the arrival of spring, precisely when the blood alters, leaving in the body with smidgens life, pleasure and enjoyment.
    Anyone coming from somewhere other than Spain will be surprised to see exactly how the nights are in Andalusia. People that don’t know each other get to know one another, the bartender that serves you a drink seems like a life-long friend. Many of the tourists that come extend their visit or try to do anything possible to come back.
    Lovers of the night, Betis Street isn’t going anywhere. Anybody who let’s himself be seen around its bars every once in a while will have enough time to shake off the blues and give life a grin.

    High-ballers and Margaritas for everyone

    All Over Seville: All Night Long

    by lotafro Written Apr 5, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As far as the nightlife is concerned you might want to checkout Catedral, which is not far from Plaza Salvador or Boss for some good booty shaking. Now if you want to go where the Spanish kids go head over to “La Palenque” and/or “Antique” but you have to go dressed to impressed! These clubs are in the area of the Expo along with a couple of others. Basically, a good area if you’re in the mood for club hopping. If your just in the mood for drinks and want to be in an English / American bar atmosphere, you only need to stroll down Calle Betis as the people call “the other side of the river”. Or visit the Irish pubs in the area of Plaza Cuba (Madigan’s), in the center right next to the cathedral (P. Flaherty ) and in Edificio Viapol (O'Neill's). You interested in going to a club and listening to nothing but flamenco and dancing sevillanas? “El Simpecao” in Triana and another called “La Madruga” (its close to a Japanese restaurant, not far from Plaza Cuba) are just right.

    Speaking of restaurants… You like your salsa spicy?? Go to Azúcar de Cuba or Habanita. Or maybe you prefer a quaint, intimate, Italian dining experience at San Marcos. There are about 6 different locations : Calle Betis, Calle Cuna, and Nervion are my personal favorites. How about tea time in an authentic Arabian atmosphere at a Moroccan tea house on Calle Pureza and another close by off of C/ Pages de Corro.

    Enjoy English-speaking movies in “versión original” at Avenida 5 Cines located right behind the NH Plaza de Armas Hotel and commercial center. Most video clubs like Blockbuster rent DVDs and also have an original versión section. There’s one on Avda. República Argentina and another in La Macarena.

    Look out for monthly agendas about the area of Andalucia called “El Giraldillo” www.elgiraldillo.es usually available in independent shops or institutions. It lists out everything from museums to concerts to movies. A definite must-have while in Seville.

    I hope this tid-bit info. helps you out while you’re here. Enjoy!

    Dress Code: The majority of the discoteques enforce the No sneaker code but ultimately the decision is left to the bouncer. If he likes how you look, you'll get in; if not, you'd be better off going to another club. People here are the ultimate fashion victims, and love to emulate LA and NY (big city) glam, so that should give you an idea of the competion.

    Remarkable experience. Two hours passed quickly with the drink and excellent dance and singing. If you wish to take great photos like mine, ask for the first row! Go one hour in advance to get the best seats.

    Dress Code: Dress up to the event (although not a must do).

    La Carbonería: Flamenco!

    Much better than the usual flamenco show for tourists, a lot more authentic. Plus it's much cheaper. Huge place, packed and really really hot in summer -- it's nicer out in the garden, but you can't see the flamenco show from there.

    Casa de la Memoria de Al-Andalus: A Good Place for Flamenco

    by Hopkid Updated Jul 21, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Casa de la Memoria de Al-Andalus is a cultural foundation which has displays and exhibits that are viewable during the day. In the evenings they offer two shows nightly (9:00 and 11:00) that showcase traditional flamenco from the 19th and early 20th century. Because of this, the shows presented are more traditional and real than a lot of the other shows in Sevilla that are geared more towards the tourist dollar. Rest assured, no one gets pulled out of the audience to be made a fool of during the show. These are authentic artists who are serious and passionate about this art form.

    Shows are presented in the beautiful interior courtyard with limited seating. I estimate that there are only 100 or so chairs. As a result, be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the show time. And it's also highly advisable to purchase your tickets in advance. I would highly recommend seeing a show at this spot.

    Dress Code: Casual. Photos are allowed during the last part of the show. Tickets are 12 euros for adults, 5 for children

    El Patio Sevillano: Flying Feet

    by Sue08080 Updated Jun 28, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sevilla is the home of flamenco, the passionate national dance of Spain. Flamenco can be seen all over Spain but it is at its best in Sevilla.

    El Patio Sevillano is probably designed for the tourist trade, but the dancing there is glorious none the less! The performance consists of musicians, singers and the extraordinary dancers. The women range in age from young and energetic to the more mature and passionate. Each dance is a spectacle of tapping feet, clicking castenets, and swirling ruffles. It is truly breathtaking to see.

    One of the male dancers was so enthusiastic that the sweat pouring down his face flew into the audience at every move!

    The theater is located right on the bank of the Guadalquivir River and beside the Plaza de Toros de la Real. There are two shows each night at 7.30 pm and 10:00 pm.

    El Palacio Andaluz: Flamenco Performance

    by hquittner Written Jan 7, 2006

    Thiss is a large night-club like venue that seves dinner and of couse liquor. It was part of our "extra" overnight tour from Torremolinos.The food was standar Spanish fare , tasy but not exceptional. The troupe was professional and very coordinated (I think there are nightly performances!). They gave the appearance of being very enthusiastic. This is an easy way to be exposed to flamenco . A preparatory lecture and demonstration would be helpful. (Some tours give these).

    A nice, chill, unpretentious place: Antiguedades

    by jetsetterforever Written Jan 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you enter this place, you'll notice paper-machee-made body parts hanging from the ceiling as well as an assortment of eerie decor. But don't be put off, it all fits into the nice artsy decor that Antiguedades has. This place had nice, stiff drinks and you get your money's worth of booze. The crowd is mainly locals and I would characterize the environment as being "laid-back" and "unpretentious".
