Bodega del Poblet – Wine, snacks & history

Finding a friendly bar near the Sagrada Familia where you can eat and drink at normal prices can be a bit of a test. The vicinity is crowded with fast-food joints and rip-off tourist traps (€ 14 for burger, egg & chips? They’re havin’ a laugh). But here, on Carrer Sardenya, just a three minute stroll from the great basilica, and open every day except Mondays, you’ll be able to join the company of locals and refresh yourself with a glass of wine or vermouth straight from the barrel, or a nice cold beer, and maybe a few tapas, in the traditional surroundings of a long established, and well-loved, bodega.

The bar at the front features antique photos of the Sagrada Familia. The room at the back, stacked with barrels of wine, has a (now much reduced) collection of Spanish Civil War posters and, strangely, a ludo-like board game featuring leftist factions from the Civil War, and a collection of vintage soda siphons.

They offer a range of hot and cold snacks, the bacalao (salted cod) croquetas (€ 4) are very tasty and worth trying.

The place has recently changed hands again — most of the old Spanish Civil war posters have disappeared — but it’s still worth calling in if in the area.

A caña (glass of draft beer) is only € 1.60, and it’s a good spot for watching Barça games on the TV.

A special bodega worth visiting.
