About the event

El Día de los Reyes Magos

Day of the Three Kings

The Three Wise Men (or Three Kings as translated from Spanish) have been honored in various European countries since the Middle Ages. Usually, the dates of January 6th and 7th are symbolic of representing the birth of Jesus, in contrast to December 25th as celebrated in the western world. When the tradition of Santa Claus bringing gifts to children on Christmas Day became popular, the Spanish culture adapted to this and used los Reyes Magos as the gift-bringers instead.

Join us at Bar Pintxos for a 5 course Tasing Menu to bring our Christmas Season to its penultimate close with food and wine.

Roscón de Rayes

the cake

One of the stantout traditions on January 6th which is the Roscón de Reyes. A ring-shaped cake that is covered with small pieces of candy that are supposed to represent the jewels of the crown. It’s a sweet bread cake that can have cream inside and dried fruit on top too. The fun part of the cake is that there are two things hidden inside.

One is a bean – whoever finds this is the unlucky one and their punishment is to buy the Roscón!

The second surprise is a toy – whoever finds this is the king or queen of the day!

Whilst we at Bar Pintxos can't go hiding small items in your food, we know, health and safety right?  Each person dining will have an envelope instead of a choking hazard

One is a bean – whoever finds this is the unlucky one and their punishment is to buy the dinner for next year...

The second surprise is a crown  – whoever finds this is the king or queen of the day, and thus, gets dinner on us!
