I hadn’t been truly introduced to the great charms of a gin tonic until a friend of mine took me to this bar. Located in a small street, I was amazed at how crowded a place with one type of liquor (namely gin) could get. Turns out there was a reason for it…
La Pesca Salada recovered for the gin-lovers an old store where they used to sell fish – specifically, salted cod. Maybe the interest of preserving the original heritage made the owners turn the place in a spectacular voyage into Captain Nemo’s realm: the ceiling resembles fish dermis and you can see a huge sardine can hanging over your head.
Furthermore than the spectacular decoration, they serve unique Gin Tonics – with a large menu to choose from. They pride themselves in offering brands no one else in Barcelona pours, both gins and tonic water. I’ve tasted a few, but I’m nonetheless faithful to a classic blend of Hendricks with cucumber and rose petals.
Just for laughs: there’s a small safety sign that says that only 15 people should be accepted inside. This is never the case. And don’t miss the opportunity to go to the bathroom in an old refrigerator…
