82 reviews of Calle Laurel



This street in Logroño is one of the most Spanish you can find in our country. It is a meeting point for people of all ages. You can find many generations at a time. The grandparents eating "pinchos", their sons with their wives and the entire set of grandchildren. It is something you have to see. A healthy, nice and family environment, and very local as well. Moreover you enter the street, declared national touristic interest, and you ask yourself: where is the crisis? Of course I have been there only during the weekend, it might not be the same during the week.

I recommend it 100%.

From Pincho to Pincho

Everyone told us we should go to Laurel Street in Logroño, where you eat "pinchos" (a special type of tapas). So we went there and it was without a doubt the best decision we could have made.

The tapas tasting is quick, because of the constant coming and going of locals and tourists. Now you can see it has become touristy but a few years ago, the locals explain, it was typical to throw bachelor parties there, so many bars had a sign that said that people throwing bachelor parties were not allowed.

Night Life, Gastronomy and Atmosphere

Without a doubt, it's the most popular street in Logroño. And it deserves the title. It is one of the streets that the traveler always looks for when he or she arrives in a Spanish city: a place where you can go out at night to enjoy gastronomy and atmosphere. And Laurel Street is a classic: a superb place to go with friends or family, to have drinks during the day or at night.

Usually people go from one bar to another, as we do in any city in the North of Spain. A glass of wine and a "pintxo" and to the next one. Also, in each bar they usually have a special "pintxo", so it is about tasting
