Old ban ban bar

Hi, was last in the village in april and noticed the bar at the top of the steps from the big square was being refurbished. It used to be cakled ban ban , or something like that. It was an old place that changed a few years ago to a bistro type.

Just wondering if its now finished and what it is.

Thanks.

Hi, thanks, yeah I was in it when it became the cafe/bistro, preferred the traditional bar. It was in middle of getting done up in April this year and wondered what it is now.

I have a feeling it was (or still is) owned by the people who run The Aroma Cafe/Secret Garden and Meninguez up in Calle San Sebastian.

I was in Mijas last week, the bar is still being refurbished, along with the handbag shop next door. Looks a long way off from being completed.

I'm back again in November, I may be able to give an update then.

Just back again from Mijas. Looks like work on bar is near completion , newspaper covering all doors and windows though. Hope to have more next time I visit in the spring. The old handbag and suitcase shop next door is now an Ale Hop shop, a chain I think.

Yes, the ban ban was covered in newspapers etc when I was there in September. Absolutely love the Ale Hop shop, saw them first in Tenerife and think they are great fun and reasonably priced.
