PUB CHARLES has been the coolest secret haunt for Sanpedreños since 1982.
At its helm throughout has been charismatic owner Jesus Leal, who insists on talking to everyone who walks through the door.
The 64-year-old hasn’t had much time off since he began the bar 34 years ago, even completing a brand new refurb last year.
“People come here for the attentive service and the ambience,” he explains. “Everyone is welcome here.”
He’s not wrong. Any given night sees Brits, Spaniards Germans, Russians and more sipping on their fishbowl G&T’s or beautifully decorated cocktails, soaking up the typically friendly San Pedro ambience.
So when you’re next strolling around San Peds, you know where to stop off for a drink.
