This bar honors the memory of legendary writer Ernest Hemingway, who frequented the adjacent Café Iruña during his time in Pamplona. El Rincón De Hemingway isn’t quite as extravagant as its sister establishment, but it incorporates the same art deco fixtures and décor to create a setting so authentic you may expect the man himself to walk in at any moment, were it not for the life-size bronze statue that has stood propped against the bar for over 50 years. Take the opportunity to order a glass of wine or champagne and raise a toast to this literary figurehead.

Established in 1980 by the Wine Guild of Navarre’s first president, Luis Fernandez Olaverri, La Vinoteca now operates two locations in Pamplona. Both shops stock a diverse collection of domestic and imported wines and are the city’s premier spots for wine culture and oenological activities. The clubs Vinarte Club Joven del Vino and La Cata Club Del Vino meet respectively at the Calle Chapitela and Calle Esquiroz branches to host wine tastings, presentations, contests, and talks by professionals. They also run courses for amateurs wanting to take their first steps in the world of wine.
