Spanish Caravan Liverpool
Following in its original Prescot footsteps, Spanish Caravan in Ropewalks is a Mediterranean bar that offers chilled days and wild nights, and “aims to build community by providing drinks that bring people together and an atmosphere that is a hub for local entertainment”.
It’s all about the Balearic vibes at this “Cafetería”, so think sun, sea and sangria… and you might at least find they can deliver on the third. We’ll be honest, what it’s really all about is the drinks (and the DJs and live musicians) at Spanish Caravan, but if you do find yourself peckish, there are a few small plate offerings to be had to take the edge off. These come in the form of traditional potato-packed tortilla, authentic bocadillo sandwiches (such as chorizo, goat’s cheese, paprika and honey) and simple snacks the likes of grilled padron peppers and pickles from nearby The Fermentation Station, plus hand-picked cheese and charcuterie boards featuring chorizo picante, Sachichón, smoked cheese with honey, olives, toasted rye bread and other goodies. Kitchen takeovers have also been a fairly regular occurrence since opening, with guest chefs dishing up Basque-style pinchos, tasty tapas and other Iberian creations; recently, Duke Street Market’s Kelp were followed by Root Catering, bringing Spanish Caravan punters quite the variation plate wise (you’ll need to keep an eye on the socials to get wind of what’s on).
For something sweet, Doogle’s Donuts deliver on the cinnamon-dusted churros and vegan cakes front, otherwise it’s fruity cocktails, classic Cava and maybe a wine flight of three samplers… and of course a choice of good strong coffee.
