Best Bars in Barcelona
When you visit Sitges this year, it would not be complete without a trip to Barcelona. It is a fantastic city with history, art, coffee shops, museums, restaurants and oh so many bars. Frequently guests ask us for a bar recommendation and we have discussions that go on for days about what is the best bar and why…..Recommending a good bar is always tricky business but we have tried to present the best of Barcelona’s bars right here.
The Ramblas are pretty unavoidable. It is buzzy and busy with all sort of street acts and vendors pushing their ware but it also a place to be enjoyed. So when you do land yourself on the Ramblas and discover you’re thirsty, we have the perfect place for you to go. Our favourite bar is the cocktail bar Boadas where the ‘camareros’ dress up for the occasion of serving your favourite cocktail in tuxedos. You can day dream to yonder years of 1933 when the bar first opened. It is a stylish spot so you may want to wear your Sunday best when visiting. It’s easy to find on Tallers 1 so check it out!
Best Bars in Barcelona
Somehow old bars are resonating with us which is why we always recommend this old favourite; Bar Pastis. IF you are lucky you will catch some live music which play nearly every evening. Bar Pastis serves it’s very own Absinthe (hence the name) but you will also find plenty of everything else too.
After stepping back in the past if you still want amazing cocktails and excellent service but of this era you absolutely must visit Marmalade or Milk. The owners, having spent much time working and living in New York and San Francisco, have brought us fantastic cocktails served professionally and with plenty of warmth and funky surroundings. Marmalade came after Milk and is spacious and airy while Milk has more of an intimate feeling. Oh and if you drink too many cocktails never fear… both Milk and Marmalade serve up without doubt Barcelona’s best brunch!! They were the first to bring Brunch to Barcelona and as they say, they have been copied but never equaled with their offering on this front. Oh… and did we mention Marmalade has a classic pool table… what more could you want? Pool, cocktails and brunch….
ith an unlikely name for of Barcelona’s best Bars a trip to Betty Ford’s is another highly recommended. It is a small bar with a laid back atmosphere. It can get pretty busy as it is very popular with locals especially early evenings so get there early and get your place at the bar.
Enjoy Barcelona!! Enjoy Sitges!!
