Moorish flavor in a few Spainsh calligraphy signs

Well-chosen calligraphy helps add flavor to simple logos and signs.  Spain absorbed 800 years of Muslim influence on art, architecture, dress, cuisine, and music.  
Here is some creative lettering from restaurant signs, reflecting the underlying Moorish influence in Spanish art. 

A sign for a Flamenco venue at left evokes the arched doorways, keyhole screens, and pointed domes of Moorish architecture. 

The flowing curves of Arabic calligraphy appear below in the letters of another restaurant.
