The blurb on the menu says this trendy new coffee and cocktail bar takes its inspiration from the Art Nouveau literary cafés of Paris and the speakeasy jazz bars of New York. I'm not sure the owners have ever set foot in either, but it's certainly one of Seville's coolest spots at the moment. Sparkling cocktail glasses dangle from above the bar, and the walls—stripped back to original brickwork—feature old movie posters adorned with fairy lights. On weekends after 10pm, it's a great place to see the smart set hang out, as it's packed to overflowing with some of the city's most stylish people in their designer dresses and crisply ironed shirts. The mixologists behind the bar are particularly good. They serve up a really sharp dry Martini. Late afternoon, with a little light jazz crooning in the background, it's a also great place for a cup of small-batch coffee and an indulgent slice of chocolate cake, and this is when I prefer to visit.
