Bilbao pinxtos on Sunday night

We're arriving to Bilbao on 19 Aug, which is a Sunday. Since it's my birthday, I don't want to go to many places or to try to look for a restaurant on that evening. It will be also a big fiesta that week, so I guess many people out and about.

Could you please recommend where to go for pinxtos that night? I prefer staying at one place, not going on a tour. I would prefer bar seating to stand-up only, but that is not important. What is important is the quality of the food and some interesting local wines to go with it.

I will be staying at the Melia hotel near Guggenheim and will probably have lunch there. I would prefer to stick to that area but it is not totally necessary if you think that the best places for pinxtos are someplace else. However I do not want to travel great distances or go to out-of-town places.

Thanks very much for any ideas on the matter of pinxtos in Bilbao. I am sooo looking forward to them :-)

      You are generous as usual, but hte OP was looking specifically for, well, for many things, including the date of 19 August.
