What makes it one of the best bars in Seville for students is its location. 

Patio San Eloy is located right  in the heart of the city, with the University of Seville just a 15 minute bus journey away, so you can hold a drink in your hand quicker  than you can say ‘salud’ (the Spanish word for ‘cheers’)!
