Malaga was on our short list of Austin dinner places, largely because of the menu and positive reviews on TripAdvisor, always our "go-to" when planning travel. Unfortunately Malaga is closed forever and the website has been taken down. Sad!

The longtime Austin tapas bar permanently closed over Labor Day 2016 Trip Advisor is making me write more so I'm writing more. Too bad - I liked this place when I lived in Austin.

The bartenders are very knowledgable of the variety of drinks as well as the history of some of its spirits. Very friendly and willing to give great advice on what to drink and epitomizes what a professional bar tender is.

Since this place was not rated that great on yelp and tripadvisor, I was not expecting much, so I was pleasantly surprised. All the tapas we had were very good, as well as the cocktails. I'd certainly go back!
