El Pimpi Wine Cellar and Restaurant (Distinguished Establishments)
This emblematic wine cellar built in an old house from the 18th century is a meeting place for people of all ages. It has welcomed many generations of artists, flamenco dancers or politicians. It is named after formerly popular city figures called ‘los pimpis’, young people who had helped ship crews or passengers and had become the first city guides.
It is furnished in the style of Malaga, and offers local wines and delicious gastronomy which is very popular in the city. The soul of the restaurant is the lounge with the vintage wine barrels, signed by famous people, such as the family Picasso, the painter Barceló, the bullfighter Cordobês, The Duchess of Alba, Carmen Thyssen and Antonio Banderas, who show the historical value of this place.
At the same place, there is as well El Pimpi Marinero fish restaurant and cocktail bar, placed in a modern building with wonderful views over the old Roman Theatre and the Citadel of Malaga.
This establisment is in the old town of Malaga, next to the Museum Picasso, La Alcazaba (the Citadel of Malaga) and the Roman Theatre.
