Chef José Pizarro has brought a piece of San Sebastian to the capital with his scrumptious pintxos, miniature meals that are an integral part of the culinary culture of the Basque region.

Each pintxo is a symphony of flavours and textures that will transport you straight to the bustling streets of San Sebastian. From succulent meats to fresh seafood, these little bites pack a punch. The bread base provides a perfect canvas for the wide range of toppings, which include everything from tangy cheeses to sweet and savoury sauces.

The Poster Bar hosts Pintxo Fridays from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Enjoy Spain's mouth-watering flavours and a free pintxo with every drink purchase.

No reservations necessary - just come on in and enjoy!
