If sipping sherry and popping olives where Ernest Hemingway once found inspiration sounds like something you want to do, head straight to La Venencia. The busy bar has vintage sherry bottles sitting under layers of dust, and the place is always crowded with locals and tourists laughing and drinking around dark wooden tables.

Don’t expect to find soda or beer on this menu: this bar only offers sherry by the glass, half-bottle, or bottle, with varieties like Manzanilla, Fino, Palo Cortado, Oloroso, and Amontillado, as well as a few tapas like chorizo or cheese. Just know that photos aren’t allowed, so put down your phone, appreciate some sherry, and enjoy the unique experience at this historic bar.
