LA RIOJA - LOGROÑO PINCHOS BAR CRAWL 

On our recent trip to La Rioja we decided to take a pinchos bar crawl down the famous Calle Laurel in Logroño. These were our favourite bars and bites on this very busy and pleasant evening in December.

BAR CID 

Travesía de Laurel, 1, 26001 Logroño, La Rioja

Quite literally a hole in the wall and very easy to walk past. The very traditional Bar Cid has vines and grapes dangling from the wooden beam ceiling, above the same duo of old men hanging out at the bar every night.

Serving up one pincho only, grilled mushrooms (setas a la plancha).

For this visit to San Sebastian in early December, we concentrated on pintxos rather than sit down meals. We started our pintxo tour in the Parte Viejo (old town). We always prefer hot pintxos as they are made to order. There is not a problem with the pintxos on the bar but you may eat too much bread!

We tend to have no more than two pintxos and a glass of wine or beer per bar, so as, not to be too full, to early. The best time to go to the pintxo bars is 8.30 pm - 10.30 pm.

We stayed in the Hotel Niza, set opposite Playa de La Concha. 

which has wonderful views from the bedroom balcony.
