On N and a Call for Entries

N, in Soho
Photo by myself on Crosby and Broome Streets in Soho.

Ñ is a letter from the Spanish alphabet is pronounced 'En-ye'. It's also a tiny tapas bar in Soho.

And I mean tiny. The narrow bar goes straight back and there is room for the bar, a person sitting on a stool and someone standing behind the stool, holding his breath.

Due to its size, the bar is easily crowded on any night. I used to go there long ago and quite enjoyed their sangria.

Its location is a little hidden, since there aren't many stores on Crosby. Inside, the walls are painted a yellow with bright red polka dots.

Wow... cosy it is! I love the name. Here in Paris there is a place called la tréma like the ¨ - double point over a vowel.

Yellow paint with red polka dots is so "Sevillanas", the Spanish flag is two red bands with a middle yellow one, and they're the typical Spanish colours, so, when you see it with polka dots, it refers to "Flamenco" a dance that is typical in the south of Spain.
I'm from the North of Spain, so I don´t dance Flamenco, but it's a "trademark" about Spanish culture and tradition.
I hope you enjoy a lot of "Tapas"!!
