The Kafe Antzokia is a place surrounded by the arts of the Basque Country: it is located inside a former theater which has now become a cultural center, where music and drama performances take place. It was originally created for the Basque-speaking community in order to sustain their language and culture. Here you can enjoy a drink or a meal for good prices, perhaps after enjoying a concert at this multi-purpose venue or simply mingle with the Basque locals until the early hours of next morning.
La Granja is one of the most beautiful restaurants in the center of Bilbao. With filling portions it is a great place for having lunch or an early dinner, and for the late evening it is ideal for enjoying an alcoholic beverage (or two).
