Bar Crespo: A perfectly no-frills bar in Tetuán

Author: Leah Pattem

“How come your pincho de tortilla is only €1?” I ask Jorge. “Because it’s from Mercadona! I take it out the packet, cut it in four like this, put it on a plate and display it on the bar.”

“You see these silver pipes on the wall? They used to make the water carbonated directly from the tap. It’s how we all used to do it.”

I think this might be the only bar in Madrid to still have the original tap!

“My father opened the bar in the 70s and after taking over from him with my brother, I’ve been here ever since.”


Location: Calle Naranjo, 35, Tetuán
