Brand new sister bar to the original Mechela in nearby Barrio del Museo, Mechela Arenal is a much more sophisticated sibling, spacious and chic, with hip art on the white washed brick walls, warm wood and leather tones throughout, and attractive lighting.
The menu is pretty much the same as at the original, with a few additions, such as the fish and meat main dishes. Happy to see some of my favourite tapas still on offer. The cashew ajoblanco with a crispy noodle-wrapped prawn is inspired, and the Ibérico rice is always a winner. Be sure to ask about the daily specials. Booking (by email only) is recommended.
