La hora del vermut is to Barcelonians what brunch is to New Yorkers: an essential part of the weekend. What was once a staple of the older generation is now very much back in fashion, and vermouth is served as a pre-lunch aperitivo on weekend mornings—Sundays in particular—across Spain.
To experience it yourself, head to Morro Fi, a tiny, perennially-packed bar with space for about 15 people on the inside and as many on the outdoor terrace. You can get cañas (glasses of beer), housemade vermut, and all the snacks that accompany it. Don’t miss the house classic: potato chips topped with pickled mussels, boquerones, olives, and spicy piparra chili peppers.
