A great piece of camp/trash culture at Alfalfa nightlife region

First of all, I did not stumble on El Garlochi Bar by chance. I knew about its existence beforehand and I happen to know that it is not the only one of its kind in Sevilla. Also... read more

What a laugh..almost didn't get in because we were laughing. Owner chain smoking behind the bar but no smoking allowed for clientele. His pictures of art canvasses are unique in that some are adorned with clothes. The owner gave out to locals that us foreigners were laughing too much but had no problem charging veinticuarto (24 euro ) for 4... More

Also, Sevilla is not the only city having these camp/trash religious bars. One of my favorite Paris bars is Le Lèche Vin, in Bastille/Rue... More

We went there one evening and had a blast. The interior is over the top, quirky and very tongue in cheek. You have to go to experience something different. I would recommend it to everyone with a good sense of humor.

Well we went here late at night! You got to see it to believe it. They called it a religious bar, crazy place very lively, unbelievably funny. Quirky place quirky people but worth the visit. I enjoyed it. Got to go if your in Seville and make your own mine up

Total rip off €6 for 2 bottles of cruzcampo he should be waring a mask, just awful. An embarrassment to Andalucia. I have lived here for 22 years and can't think of a place that rips off foreigners to this degree. Having told him about his usury practices I was subsequently banned, a unique honour which I am very proud... More

It was a genuinely bizzare experience as we by happy accident stumbled upon this (I can't call it a bar, it's more like an ode to the catholic religion). The decor is incredibly detailed and some might find it tacky, over the top, and others eerie, but personally I found it fascinating. I know I probably will never come across... More

Laughed until my sides split this bar has got to be the most random bar I've ever been in !! Worth a visit but you don't need to stay longer than one drink 🍷 and I would suggest you go with company as the grumpy git behind the bar is not very sociable 😂 neither is the death march music... More

This bar is a MUST on your visit to Seville! It's quirky & eccentric interior will have you gasping & make your head spin! The owner is fantastic & makes you feel really welcome! He's a celebrity in his own right. We even re-enacted the famous photo he had taken with Uma Therman when she came to visit. The G&Ts... More

Alright, so the place is very eccentric. Take in the view, snap some pics and leave. The grumpy old bartender wouldn't take our order even though we were the only ones there. I had to chase him around the bar to get him to respond to me. He kicked out my friend who asked if he could smoke his e-cig... More
