I had the pleasure of experiencing El Pimpi several times during my stay in Malaga . I was only there around lunch time so I ate outside ( they have have a large patio area and there's always a lineup . But it moves quickly and the service is exceptional !! My favourite dish is the wedge clams ( small morsels of euphoric goodness) . The venue is super and a great place to watch the world go by.
This is one of those bars you need to visit. It is always very busy with locals and at night there is music and sometimes flamenco. It's a maze of courtyards and different rooms lined with barrels and old posters. It used to be a convent.
It's a nice place for tasting one of the many typical wines from Malaga, together with some tapas.
One of the best places to have a drink and tapas in Málaga. Good music and traditional decoration. Very good place to start to spend a good evening.
Es uno de los mejors sitios para tomar algo de beber y alguna que otra tapa. Buena música y decoración tradicional. Es el mejor sitio para empezar una buena noche de marcha.
El Pimpi seems to have beenbuilt in the leftover spaces between Malaga's old buildings. It goes up steps, around corners, past a leafy patio and many different sized rooms with different activities. The largest room is packed with barrells from floor to ceiling.
There are two entrances. The main one is off the cobbled street between the Picasso Museum and Plaza de la Merced. There is another entrance opposite the Roman amphitheatre ~ which (during the day) makes El Pimpi a good shortcut across the block!!
The bar was pleasantly busy during lunchtime with a varied mixture of characters. In the evening the place became very full, with loud music and conversation. All ages, not just youngsters. They apparently serve good food too.
It was one of those places that feels like the social centre of trendy Malaga.
