Standing outside of Bodegas Melibea you are immediately tempted in by murals of naked bathing beauties. Very tasteful of course. With all the bars around Sol offering cheap beers and the promise of drunken shenanigans, it’s a nice change from a young student handing you a flyer for a free shot.
Inside there are more murals which become even more captivating. On the left side there are bathing women similar to the outside but with the central one being an erotic piece depicting two women kissing. On the right is a scene made up of skeletons drinking and partying. When you look closer you realise that it’s actually the bar itself where you can even see the same mural that’s on the left of the bar. Weird, funky and kinda cool.
The food and drinks are inexpensive and it’s one of the few places that'll give you free tapas with your drink that’s not just crisps or olives. The staff are friendly and so are the clientele. Of course being near Sol they do cater to the tourists so you can easily find a Sangria here if you really must.
Since these photos were taken the bar has gone through a bit of a makeover. Not really to my taste. The cool murals are still there but it's now more of a restaurant and less of a bar. Still a great place to have a beer.
