If you can't get into Tickets, head over to Bodega 1900, an old-school tapas and vermouth spot run by the same guys. Vermouth is what people drink in Barcelona, mid-afternoon, with tapas. It’s dark, sweet and best served on ice, with an orange slice or soda water. Let this also be your introduction to vermouth’s perfect accompaniment: conservas, which are seafood canned and preserved. Bodega 1900 is a good place to learn some history about Barcelona - the place has a real classic feel.
