Found this bar by chance and what a cracker it is. This is mainly down to the personalities of the staff mainly Shane and Emma they make you so welcome from the minute you arrive.

Best friendly bar ever, always ready for a chat and a laugh, full of atmosphere. It’s a little gem tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the promenade

Great little bar. Shane runs it and service is great. Lovely to chill out on the square. Very quiet and relaxed but a mix of people here

Benelmadena, Costa del Sol, Spain. Just along from Malaga. Buddy's Bar is located in Plaza Ole off the main coastal road next to Best Triton hotel.
