Three new wine places in Malaga: Araboka Plaza, El Descorche de Cervantes and La Bohemia
Araboka has opened its second branch, called Araboka Plaza. It is slightly outside the center but well worth a detour. The beautifully renovated restaurant exudes wine and culinary pleasure. You can book a table or relax at the bar. The wine collection is impressive (as with Araboka center) and there is a wide range of wines from Andalusia and Malaga. Antonio the owner is an expert in this field. The wines from the rest of Spain are also excellently chosen. The gastronomic kitchen, where many regional dishes are given a modern culinary twist, fits perfectly with this wine festival. One of the few locations in Malaga where true wine love is combined with top-class culinary entertainment.
El Descorche de Cervantes
What started with the small tapas bar El Tapeo de Cervantes has now grown into a real catering company with four branches. The latest addition is El Descorche de Cervantes. The concept is surprising and innovative; only wines from the province of Malaga are served. The collections are impressive and to be honest you will find most wines from the province here than anywhere else. However, the prices are unfortunately very high compared to other locations where it is good to be when it comes to wine. The retail prices for taking wine with you unfortunately also fall into this category.
A little gem just outside the center is La Bohemia. A small wine bar with a quirky collection at good prices. You will hardly find tourists here, but mainly 'locals'. With the wine you can order an extensive collection of 'montaditos' (small sandwiches) or 'tostadas' (slightly larger sandwich toasted) with all kinds of delicacies. The 'embutidos' (luxury meats such as Iberian ham, chorizo, etc.) even come in 50 or 100 grams, so you don't have to order a whole portion. The perfect location to settle down after a long city walk and have a quiet drink with a glass of wine in hand accompanied by a few snacks. Please note the opening times, they are slightly different.
