You can’t know Andalusia without understanding its native dance flamenco.

The best place to learn about it is at this museum dedicated to this mesmerizing and sexy dance form, masterminded by and named for the renowned flamenco dancer, Cristina Hoyos who grew up nearby. Tucked into a side street of the popular, lively Alfalfa Street, home to much of Seville’s outdoor nightlife scene, the museum is housed in a gorgeous 18th-century casa de palacio (an opulent former private residence) which employs cutting-edge multimedia technology to tell the story of flamenco and its fascinating global influences (hand movements from India, hip swaying from the Caribbean, etc.) It depicts some of the great practitioners of this art form. Be absolutely sure to reserve tickets to a performance by some of the best artists in an intimate 80-seat venue.

Good news for fans of P-Town: Edwige is reopening this summer under the guidance of Steven Frappolli, one of the original owners and the man behind Frappo66, along with Nancy Anne, the current owner. According to Frappolli, “we’re starting an entirely new dinner menu and studding it with updated favorites from Edwige’s past, Frappo66, and a bunch of new ideas. Think of it as a retro-innovative merger.” The summer months are the best to visit P’town. You’ll beat the crowds; the weather can be cool but the air is clean and the light sublime.

With its chic but casual vibe, OCabnon strikes the perfect balance of wine bar and bistro. The menu features eclectic signature dishes like the foie gras bagel and a grilled eggplant “chiffonade,” as well as a selection of meats and cheeses to share. Dishes are paired with wine suggestions in case you can’t decide among the selection of 100 or so French wines. There’s also a mezzanine dining area with couches for you to sink into for a little extra comfort.
