Open All Day

Adjusting to Spanish eating times – or even knowing about them when you first arrive – can be a challenge for visitors. The dread “dead zone” from 4 – 8 pm, when many bars are closed, often catches people out if they have booked tours or are travelling during lunchtime. And, let’s face it, if you are just here for a few days you’re still likely to be hungry for dinner at 6 o’clock no matter what. Unfortunately, many establishments with “all day kitchens” are catering to the tourist market and do not offer the best food. So here is a list of some of my favourite bars that offer great food all the time.

They are listed by barrio (neighbourhood) and you’ll see that some serve food all day, while others remain open but their kitchens close between 4 – 8 pm. Though in the case of the latter, you can still order cold snacks like jamón, cheese, prepared salads, have coffee and cake, or just enjoy a drink.

Some places close for summer holidays during either July or August, so call ahead to check the hours those months.
