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.
Elephanta is a cute, cozy and non-traditional bar in the heart of the neighborhood. Decorated with funky lights, books, and artwork, Elephanta is the place to go if you’re looking for an artsy vibe. The menus is made from recycled records, and offers a huge array of unique cocktails that range from fun twists on traditional drinks to completely new creations. If you’re having trouble deciding, order the gin and tonic sampler, which comes with three mini samples. Soft music and lighting make this venue a great place to chat with friends.
