What a great place, I'm sitting in a bedouin tent having some very fine tapas, looking out over the coast listening to some cool spainish music, staff are so friendly, it's so different to all the other restaurants in benalmadena pueblo, it's hidden behind the church down the steps. It's always the little touches that make a place special and this is definatly a special place, wish I wasn't going home tomorrow so I could could come again.

If you're done with all the UK bars in Benalmadena costa you should visit this brilliant lounge bar in Benalmadena Pueblo (the old town).

Old town by itself is already a nice visit, so i would really recommend visiting this part of Benalmadena.

Take a taxi to the old town and head out from the taxi pickup place thingy or whatever its called in english. Walk past the first bars and you'll see directions pointing to Plaza Espana (its left). Walk trough the nice andalucian streets with white houses until you reach thr little square with the fountain which is Plaza Espana. Some nice restaurants there as well (La Fuente for example).

Keep walking straight ahead until you bump into a little church, walk behind the church and to the left and right there are stairs taking you down to one of the best lounge bars i have ever visited (La Cupula Lounge).

Its perfect, situating just below the church almost on top of the hill. Bob Marley music playing when we arrived (that kinda was how i found it, cause i heard the music and it made me curious as i love Bob). Take a seat in one of the couches and watch the scenic views of the costa del sol below you and if you are luck the maroccan coast. All this while sipping on a cold Coronita, a caipirinha or mango mojito. Mint leaves picked just beside you.....

Second day we came back tot try out the food. We decide to go for the mixed grill for 2 from the bbq. Excellent nicely flavoured bbq grilled meat while the evening liveband started playing. This is lounging as it should be.

I was really surprised no one had ever wrote a review about this place. They were celebrating their 3rd year anniversary. Maybe because the are a little hard to find.
