Barcelona City Guide The best things to see and do in Barcelona

Coctelería Boadas

It all started in 1933 when Miguel Boadas, a catalán born in Cuba, who was working in the mythical Floridita de La Habana, wanted to bring to Barcelona the art of combining liquors in a purpose built place. Even though it is located in the trendy part of the city, in a touristic street - calle Tallers on the corner of the Ramblas, it is one of the few pockets of authenticity in Barcelona. Small, with a large wooden bar and matching barstools, full of paintings on the wall and a battalion of waiters wearing expert tuxedo. One of its key aspects is the clientele, a mixture of loyal patrons, natives celebrating a special occasion and foreigners, all well dressed due to the dress code. Even when packed, it is worth visiting, and if you secure a seat at the bar, you can enjoy a good cocktail. There are cocktails for all tastes: Vodka Collins, Bloody Mary, Gimlet, Rob Roy and many others.
