I'll tell you the truth, as I drink here regularly. This is not a trendy spot or a tourist attraction. If you think you're going to listen to stories of Harlem past, think again. The Seville caters primarily to a broad, older (35+) crowd of locals and Harlem ex-pats, and not everyone's living in the past. Come to relax, have a evening drink with a friend or two (it's small), and shoot the breeze. The decor is basic, and certainly not shabby, featuring photos of nightlife celebrities and entertainers, that you CAN ask about. Now, don't be put off by some of the patrons give you the ""fish eye"" when you enter; but the better you're dressed, the better the reception. Not a place for trendy cocktails, but the service is cordial with drink prices that will leave you with enough to go to the next spot. The music is R & B, in keeping with the mature vibe, with a great mixture of old and new. If YOU'RE new, be on good behavior: don't get loud, drunk and overly friendly; if folks want to talk to you, they will. The Seville does not accept credit cards, so have cash on hand. And don't go too late, as this place can close early, if they don't have enough customers, especially during the week.
Pros: Nice place to chill after sightseeing, work or shopping.
Cons: None; only what you bring to it.
