If you like vermouth, Barcelona offers excellent bars where you can taste delicious appetizers, including the well-known vermouth. In the city it is becoming more and more common to find classic bodegas and bars to meet with friends at noon to share vermouth, a traditional appetizer accompanied by tapas, bravas, ensaladillas, anchovies, croquettes, etc.
The vermouth has never left Barcelona, only that the habit of drinking it is getting stronger every day. In fact, lately it has been playing a leading role in the aperitif ritual.
If you like vermouth drink it in one of these 4 bars
The Vermutillo Factory
In this place opened to the public a few months ago, you can enjoy the old-fashioned impeccable vermouth. La Fábrica del Vermutillo is owned by the grandchildren of the owners of the legendary Bodega Monumental on Calle de la Marina. La Fábrica del Vermutillo also has its own brand of preserves and house vermouths.
In this place you can taste delicious and addictive bravas with a mixture of sauces, olives with marinated salmon, preserves and banderillas. València, 244 Barcelona, 08007.
El Sifó d’en Garriga
It is a combination of everything: it is a café, a bar, a restaurant, a vermuteria and it also has a kitchen open all day long. In the end it turns out to be something like a refuge where you can arrive at any time. The space has an industrial inspiration and decor where white tile is combined with exposed brick and unfinished walls.
The aesthetic clash generates a casual atmosphere ideal for tasting the delicious dishes, snacks, tapas and appetizers. Carrer del Consell de Cent, 308, Barcelona.
It is a cocktail bar specializing in good vermouth and vermouth cocktails accompanied by a variety of tapas, salted meats and dishes from Aragon and Castile. So if you like vermouth it is a good place to taste it.
Its menu is classified as organic so you can enjoy dishes such as “lomo de orza”, a fine marinated pork loin with aioli and lemon or “atascaburras”, a cod dish. They also specialize in fish. Carrer de Pujades, 196, 08005 Barcelona, Spain.
This unique bar opened by the Asturian chef Fran Heras, is a direct and simple place, where you can enjoy the duality cider / vermouth and the crossing Asturias / Catalonia. The name of the bar has a popular, populist connotation with a touch of unionism.
Heras affirms that “the chigres developed in the mines. People drank and discussed politics”. For this reason, the fusion he proposes is almost revolutionary: to achieve the mixture of Asturian products with Catalan cuisine and vice versa. Carrer dels Sombrerers, 7, 08003 Barcelona.
