You’ll find this alfresco bar, with its candlelit tables and hammocks strung from the trees, hidden amid the woods near the castle on Montjuic. It’s a really good spot to view the sunset while listening to music, dancing and quaffing on reasonably priced beers.
Before you set off be sure to check the schedule, which changes according to the season. For example, during the summer, it’s open Wednesday to Sunday; and in autumn, winter and spring, it may only be open on Friday and/or Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Take the 150 bus from Plaça Espanya, or take the 55 bus from Plaça Catalunya (near the Apple store) and change to the 150 bus at the stop near the Olympics museum. Tell the driver, Caseta del Migdia, and you’ll have a 5 minute stroll. Or, you could take the funicular from Paral·lel and then catch the 150 bus.
You’ll be pleased you made the effort. If you’re lucky you’ll catch a DJ set, or a flamenco gig (every Sunday evening during the summer) or a bossanova party.
Bring your own picnic, or try their grill (€ 12) which offers chicken, butifarra (Catalan sausage) and vegetarian wraps, served with corn on the cob, salad and bread. And, every Wednesday evening during the summer you can enjoy freshly grilled sardines – though you’ll need to book ahead.
To get back into the city after 22:00 you’ll have a long walk! Or, you could ask the bar staff for a taxi phone number.
