Nightlife in Barcelona is great, I love hopping from bar to bar and mixing in some tapas throughout the evening. There are so many great bars in Barcelona. I have tried my best to have a drink or two in as many as possible (it was tough 🙂 !!) There are traditional bars, modern bars, cocktail bars, wine bars (oh so many bars). Here is my list of 5 Barcelona Bars that everyone should try at least once.
Old Fashioned Cava Bar
Carrer de la Reina Cristina, 7
This has to be one of the best old-style Cava (sparkling wine) bars in Barcelona and is definitely my favourite. I make sure I go whenever I’m in Barcelona. I love it because it is full of locals and very traditional. A queue of locals often forms outside and that’s when you know its going to be good. Once you get in and squeeze your way to the bar you get to try their pink Cava served up in elegant little glasses. They also serve tapas and sandwiches. Their meat sandwiches are really good and help to line the stomach!
Gin and Tonic Bar
Old Fashioned Gin tonic & Cocktail Bar
Carrer Santa Teresa, 1
If Gin and tonic is your tipple of choice then this bar is a must! This small, quaint bar is full of character, just like their staff. They were very helpful in recommending which gins to try. There were so many different gin and tonic combinations, as well as a long list of cocktails. They even stock Hayman’s Gin which is distilled locally to where I live! Be warned once inside you may not want to leave!
Bar el Trece
Carrer de la Lleona, 13
We stumbled across this tiny Mojito bar while out and about in Barcelona. It is very small but serves great Mojitos all made with fresh ingredients. I had a Raspberry Mojito and has to be one of the best I have ever tasted. The bar doesn’t feel touristy which I also like.
Plaça del Fossar de les Moreres, 7
This Cocktail bar seems to have every spirit you could think of on display behind the bar. They have a great choice of cocktails including Pina Colada served in a fresh pineapple (a must when on holiday!). Their Lime Daiquiris are also rather tasty!
La Vinya del Senyor
Plaza Santa Maria, 5
This wine bar is in a beautiful setting overlooking the church of Santa Maria del Mar. It is a wine lovers paradise with around 350 varieties of wine and cava to choose from. The wines are from all over the world and you can buy wine by the bottle, half bottle or glass which is great. Order some cheese and nibbles and enjoy your wine with views of the magnificent church.
Its making me thirsty just thinking about it. Would love to be back in Barcelona sipping on a cold glass of wine in the sunshine! Hope you enjoy visiting some of these great Barcelona Bars.
