Gràcia didn’t become part of Barcelona until the late 19th century and the neighborhood retains its own unique character today. Filled with small streets and lively plazas, it has a great range of bars so you’ll never be at a loss for somewhere to grab a drink. We pick the ten best options for a night out in Gràcia.
Situated in the heart of Gràcia and decorated, as the name suggests, with parts from old bicycles, El Ciclista Cocktail Bar offers an inviting and retro atmosphere to bicyclists and non-athletes alike. With soft music, dim lighting, and small, intimate bike-tire tables, El Ciclista is the perfect place to grab a drink and converse with friends without the overwhelming background noise. Owners Fernando Oviedo and Santi Mosquera are best-known for their gin and tonics, but they offer a wide array of cocktails and liquors as well.
A cocktail bar with an upscale, restaurant feel, Bobby Gin offers a wide variety of intricate cocktails, meals, and desserts. The bar displays an eclectic array of mismatched décor, the most notable feature being a large sign that proudly proclaims ‘God Save The Gin.’ The food is delicious and reasonably priced, and if you’re lucky, the bartender might offer you a free snack. Likewise, the cocktails are unique and creative, featuring ingredients like figs, rose tea, and vegetable elixir. Don’t miss the Bobby Spring, a refreshing gin and tonic infused with grapefruit and strawberries.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
