The warm wooden bar and tables and a long, exposed brick wall lend this tapas bar a rustic feel in keeping with the Andalusian spirit. A bilingual staff serves sangria, tequila and small plates to a clientele which evolves over the course of the night: pairs and trios of after-work women in the early evening, dinner dates on the later side, and a Spanish-speaking crowd kicking back to Iberian pop after 11pm. There's a full bar in addition to a selection of Spanish, Chilean and Argentinean wines (eight by the glass, along with red and white sangria), plus ports and sherries, including a smoky oloroso variety. Among the traditional tapas are the prosciutto-like jamon serrano, cabrales and Manchego cheeses, garlicky shrimp and a slightly dry, birthday-cake-high tortilla, the Spanish potato omelette. Next door to the bustling Ear Inn, the open-air Kaña appears rather tame during cocktail hour, but then it's a natural for intimate conversation.Note
