Enter Calle Elvira from Plaza Nueva for the lively atmosphere. On the left, you've got some of Granada's busiest and best tapas bars where people have to stand in the street with their drinks because there is no space inside. On the right, there is a small Arabic quarter full of Middle Eastern and North African restaurants, take-away shops, tea shops and craft shops. Most of the bars around here still offer free tapas with drinks. The shops and restaurants in the Arabic quarter offer good value for money as well. Walk straight along the street from here and you'll pass a variety of antique shops, ceramics shops and small furniture workshops until you come to Elvira Gate.
