Barcelona is full of traditional taverns where you can spend an afternoon sipping some wines or sharing dishes and tapas with some friends during the weekend. There is something to choose from in different neighborhoods and suitable for all tastes and we have already made our selection.
When you’re looking to feel like at home
Located in trendy Parlament street, this family owned tavern serves one of the best tapas in town. They use local produce to create all their dishes so that you can enjoy them in their traditional restaurant or at their lively terrace. Also, they love their clients so much they even have some pictures with them hung at their walls!
Searching for the best location
When needing a break after strolling around the city centre, you can stop by this cozy bar where they serve their vermut packs composed of the basics: olives, anchovies, cockles and chips. You only have to take a look at the façades of this emblematic building in the middle of the busy commercial streets to realize it still keeps the essence after more than 100 years.
Typical cuisine and home-made vermouth in traditional ambience
Marc runs this traditional bodega where every day he offers the most curious (and yummy) sandwich combinations. Loyal clients come down to Sants to enjoy their homemade vermouth and beer and savor the amazing typical local dishes such as capipota or fricandó. Reminder: don’t forget to try their Friday of “tortilla”!
Authentic bodega in a well-known neighborhood
Right in the centre of the Gracia neighborhood, this small but cozy bodega stands out for itself. People gather at the outside of this traditional tavern as they come by to enjoy a glass of wine or vermouth. Inside, you will discover their shop, a cellar where you can buy one of the many bottles exhibited by the owners.
Yummy food and affordable drinks
As soon as you enter this bodega in Clot neighbourhood, you will be surprised by the collection of vintage keychains hung all the way from the walls to the ceilings of this classical tavern. The selection of cured meats and cheeses you will see written down on the blackboards are served on paper sheets as if you were buying them at the market. These and the delicious torreznos will definitely leave you craving for more.
