Chiringuito Del Cabo


Bernabe and Francisco behind the bar

Every year new bars open in Las Negras. Some close in September, others struggle on a little longer but some are here to stay. Tonight the Cacho clan celebrated the opening of their latest venture “El Chiringuito del Cabo” and this bar will be here to stay.

A month ago this was just a plot of land by at the end of the village behind the beach. In a short time this attractive wooden structure has been built and is now open for business. The location plus the experience and expertise of the owners will ensure its success.

Bernabe Junior, Junior, grandson of the original, legendary Bernabe “El Cacho” and his younger brother Francisco hosted a memorable opening night with live music from a jolly Spanish group.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
