Gràcia (III) – Vermut time

Not only eating, by Silicians

These days you can enjoy popular celebrations in Festes de Gràcia. Besides viewing the decorated streets, this is a good time to know some bars in the area if you want to taste a traditional vermut.

Bodega Quimet (Vic St.23): Just a few tables in a traditional place recovered from the past. Vermut at 1 euros and a varied sort of tapas (hig quality sausage from Extremadura)


Vermuteria del Tano (Joan Blanques St.,17 or Bruniquer St.30): There are always ready the ingredients for a vermut in a traditional and authentic setting.


Costa Brava (Alzina St.58): little bodega in a quiet place of the area. Any sophistication, but good tapas and vermut.
