Cafe Sevilla is located in the downtown Gaslamp district in San Diego. It's a great place to hear live music while sharing tapas and drinks with friends. The interior is huge with flags hanging from a 20ft ceiling, a bull on the wall behind the bar, and other Spanish-inspired decor. The owners are from Spain, and this restaurant has been here in San Diego for over 20 years.
On weekends, it's a good idea to make reservations for dinner since it does fill up quickly. There's a little stage that is always occupied by flamenco, rumba and/or Spanish guitarists. If you want a little more quiet, ask for a table on the second floor—you can still hear the live flamenco, but it feels a little more private.
Or, you can sit outside on the patio for people watching. 5th Ave in San Diego is a hopping little place, and Cafe Sevilla is a great start to your evening.

This Spanish restaurant and bar offers an amazing ambience and is great to gather with friends. Enjoy the tapas and Sangria while watching the live music they offer every Friday night. They have a $5 cover on Fridays and the drinks are a bit expensive as it is located downtown. Come here to show off your salsa moves!
