This has to be one of the questions I get the most, even from people living in San Sebastián.
Where can I go for pintxos on Monday night in the Old Part?
So, to celebrate the end of the summer, that glorious time when everything is open and kitchens seem to want nothing more than to feed you, I am answering it here. Because Monday can be a difficult night to do pintxos in San Sebastián. Of course, if you are willing to explore non Old-Part options it becomes easier, but most visitors want to see the famous spots before getting off the beaten path.. And, let's admit it. You accidentally left Monday night open for pintxos since there were no Michelin options, but you didn't realize that your one night to experience all that the famous blocks of San Sebastián's pintxo quarters would be when the best ones are closed.
Don't worry! There are still just enough of the best ones open to make a great route. Follow the one I've mapped out below, in order, and prepare for a night of deliciousness.
