La Bicicleteria Bar – Me dicen el clandestino

La Bicicleteria bar is well worth stopping by for some cheap drinks if you’re looking for a glimpse of Seville that most tourists probably miss. Hidden in the side streets just off the Alameda, the entrance process is relatively covert in order to keep disturbance to the neighbors at a minimum.

A trip to La Bicicleteria is like being invited to an intimate house party in someone’s living room

The tiny downstairs space is generally packed with eclectic and laid back locals and Spanish rules to smoking inside don’t really seem to apply.

La Bicicleteria is a bit of mystery. It has the feel of a clandestine, illegal bar and entry is certainly not guaranteed to all. It doesn’t seem to have any fixed opening times, and closing time really depends on when the party finishes. It’s possible that there may be some art or cultural event on going and occasionally live music, but everything is spontaneous and very relaxed.

Décor, vibes, and clientele are bohemian and non-conformist. On a good night a trip to La Bicicleteria is like being invited to an intimate house party in someone’s living room more than going to a Spanish bar. The music is pretty cool and ranges from old rock to funk and soul or reggae.

This is a definite must do for any night out drinking in Sevilla and a good place to spend a few hours making your way through their mojitos before heading on to some clubs.

SBT says wine on: Whatever’s left over.

Come here if: You like late night jazz, smoking indoors, getting cosy with strangers
Don’t come here if: You don’t miss the days you came home from a bar at 5am stinking of smoke
When? Every night until they feel like closing Where? C/ Feria 36, 41003 Sevilla
