Fodor's Expert Review El Farol

East Side and Canyon Road Bars/Pubs Fodor's Choice

With its long front portal and expansive back patio, this ancient adobe restaurant is a lovely spot to enjoy the afternoons and evenings of summer. The roomy, rustic lounge has a true Old West atmosphere—there's been a bar on the premises since 1835—and you can order some fine Spanish brandies and sherries in addition to cold beers, sangria, and margaritas, and the kitchen turns out authentic Spanish fare, from hearty paellas to lighter tapas. It's a great place to see a variety of music, including first-rate flamenco dinner shows; the dance floor fills up with a friendly crowd.
