Cocktails in Barcelona
Look no further than Boadas for ambiance, history and fancy drinks
We were looking for a bar in Barcelona, specifically cocktails of course. So Sara the Posh Traveler and I wandered into Boadas on a weeknight around 11pm. Seeing it was deserted, we got shy and began turning back towards the door. But the bartender called us over, insisting we stay awhile and that he doesn’t bite).
Claim to fame
Boadas is known for its famous clientele. It’s been visited by the likes of Kevin Costner, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.
It has been open since the 1930s and calls itself Barcelona’s oldest “cocktelería” (cocktail bar).
Testing it out
The bar’s signature drink is aptly named “Boadas” and its creation is an impressive sight (watch the video to see what I mean).
