Zumeltzegi is a bar with a contemporary cozy design and a long history (it's been around for 35 years). They offer familiar Basque pintxos, with an interesting presentation, which still retain the main characteristics of all San Sebastian mini-sandwiches, namely being majestically made of quality local products. Their local hits are brochette-style pintxos. Try all the options: chicken, meat, monk fish, prawns with mushrooms and a mixture of squid, ham and peppers. The bar also has a restaurant with a perfect interior for a Saturday dinner.

Whiskey Museum has one of the largest collections of whiskeys in the world (as surprising as it may sound), low-key atmosphere and a charismatic owner - Paul Bordonaba, who entertains guests with jokes, games and mixes cocktails. He got the passion for the whiskey from his father, who began gathering collection in 1964 that has grown to such a grand scale. The bar displays 3,400 bottles among which there is the smallest bottle in the world and 200 bottles available for consumption. Those who drink with a particular zeal, yet could still play a piano located on the ground floor – are awarded a Guest of honor certificate.
Well-known makers of the Basque cider “Etxeberria” and “Zabala” joined forces for project Iretza in 2008. They created the modern sidreria, which preserves all the traditions such as tasting cider from various barrels and the classic menu: scrambled eggs and cod to start followed by a main course of Txuleta. Imagine tasting cider while sitting inside the barrel! Yes, their design is quite unique and cozy. Check it out for yourself during one spare Saturday.
