There are said to be more bars in the Valencian Comunidad than in the rest of Europe put together. Whilst this may not be entirely accurate, (!) there are a heck of a lot. Wherever you look there is a bar, bodega, cafe or cerveceria all waiting to serve you anything from an espresso to a full meal. This list is not, by any means, a full list of Valencia's bars, it's more of a taster, to whet your appetite, or thirst, as it were...

Caféteria Madrid · Abadia San Martin, 10 Refurbished a couple of years ago and a lot more elegant than it used to be, it is said that this is where Aqua de Valencia, a lethal mix of Cava, Orange juice and some assorted liquors.I went with a friend the first time about 15 years ago when it was a grubby little bar and realised the potency of the drink just by looking around at the red face, glassy eyed cusomers swaying drunkenly at each table in front of their half drunk Jugs of the stuff. Still the best, most potent Aqua in town!.
