I have visited this bar before, under the previous management, and I had a good time, but Mark and G.G. (!) have lifted things to a whole new level. I felt truly welcome, got exactly the drink I wanted , and I had several great evenings with them. You seldom run into people who are as sincere about ensuring the... More

New owners have now settled in and made the place a very nice comfortable place to drink. The cocktails are as good as the previous owners and I'm sure when it's the height of the season they will be very busy. Mark & Geanina will make you all very welcome.

Went here at xmas 2017, found that Richard and annette had sold the bar and moved on. This is no longer a great cocktail bar, they don't even have a cocktail menu, when we went they didn't even have any draught beer! Asked for a pimms but none of that either, had a bottle of beer and left. This is... More

Yes Christmas !! , I did get caught out with the shut off time for the beer delivery sorry about that. I did offer you are new winter cocktail list and I am afraid to say it does not include the 172 different Mojitos on the previous owners list !! If your idea of a cocktail bar is a pint... More

Visited this bijou bar whilst on a four day break to Benalmadena. As it was a wet winter night the place was very quiet but that didn't stop the owners, Mark and Genina, from creating a fantastic atmosphere, friendly conversation and phenomenal gins! The beautiful Genina proved as adept at banter as she was at mixing gins and Mark's easy... More

The most amazing cocktail bar situated in a small square. The owner makes his way around the tables chatting to everyone and the bar staff gave options on which cocktails to try.

Bar Ole is in a great location on the popular Plaza De Ole in Benalmadena Costa. As well as having an extensive a la carte menu they also provide the very popular menu del dia for the competitive price of 11. 70 euros per person and that includes a drink as well. There is a choice of about 8 different... More

Anett & Richard are a lovely couple & go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We tried a few different cocktails, all good. Good luck guys with your new venture!! Located in Plaza Ole, accessible from the beach promenade or down the hill from Av Antonio Machado. Highly recommended.
