This is a long overdue article about one of my favourite places in Granada.
I’ve probably been to Kasbah about five or six times, each time either for a meal, a quick drink, or a sneaky sweet treat before heading to the hotel. Each time I tried to take some photos for the article, but it’s always full of people so busy that it’s impossible to get a photo of the rooms and interiors.
I tried my best on the last visit, knowing well that it won’t tell the full story, but it will hopefully give you enough inspiration to go and check it out yourself when you’re visiting Granada.
For a better look you can check out the video below.

Tea Rooms (Teterias) in Granada
As you probably already know, Granada is known for its traditional tea rooms (teterias), and the street of Caldereria Nueva (also called Calle de las Teterias) is full of those. Some are more inviting than others, and they vary in their size and food options too.
The Moroccan-style tea rooms of Granada are a local favourite, serving a lot of young people (students) but also tourists. The informal and relaxed atmosphere of the tea rooms, combined with dim lighting and beautiful decor will transport you to a different world as soon as you enter.
The local shops on the street immerse you in the authentic ambiance of a local market, with exotic Moroccan glass lamps, inviting tea sets, stylish leather goods including traditional slippers, and more.
All the teterias traditionally serve a selection of different tea blends, and traditional sweets like Baklava. You can also order wines, cocktails and milkshakes too. Bigger ones like Kasbah also have an extensive traditional menu consisting of meals like falafels, different salads, rice dishes and more.
I have previously also visited the El Banuelo Teteria, which is also very popular thanks to the Alhambra views, but personally, I much prefer Kasbah for its atmosphere, food options, and super friendly and fast service.
Why Visit Kasbah Tea Room
Kasbah is one of the most popular teterias on the streets, it’s right at the beginning of the Calle Caldereria, and yes – it does get busy. The place is pretty big spread over two floors, so even if it looks like there is no seating available, they will find a spot for you.
I tried a number of different tea blends here, different types of wines, desserts, and even food, and everything was delicious.
The service is very fast and friendly, and they all speak good English too!
On Saturdays and Sundays, in the main season, they have also belly dancing available to entertain the guests.
If you’re planning a trip to Granada, please add this place to your list – I promise you will love it as much as I do!
