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.

La Cova Fumada

Another Barceloneta tapas spot. The speciality at La Cova Fumada is the bomba (a “potato bomb").

Kaiku is one of few local joints that has beachside seating. The food is all delicious, but make sure to get at least one rice dish.

If you want to get into Tickets, plan your reservation very far in advance. It's an excellent tapas restaurant with very fun vibes.

For old school tapas and vermouth, head to Bodega 1900.
