Because of the city’s ridiculous popularity, Barcelona locals are allergic to anything touristy. Once a train station, El Nacional is now an open-concept, gorgeous space that houses several different high-quality bars and restaurants. Its newness and location near Plaça de Catalunya means there’s lots of tourist traffic, but natives love it anyway. It’s a perfect post-sightseeing option, whether for your early evening vermouth and tapas or for dinner.
