Chiringuitos, famous beach bars of Barcelona

It’s time to start looking for places a bit far from the hot and crowded streets. The weather in Barcelona seems to be everyday better what means we could already think about beach, sand and inviting us with its light blue color Mediterranean Sea. To stay at the beach doesn’t mean taking sunbath all the day, at Barcelona beach you can also enjoy a typical Mediterranean food in some of beach bars we call “chiringuito”. And yes, count on the spectacular views you will admire!


We start by order, in the outlying bar Pez Vela, far from noisy and vivid Barceloneta beach. Unequalled seafront stage and simple cuisine based on fresh grilled fish, rice and salads. And as an extra, cool music and people.

La Guingueta is our next stop and a new place at Barceloneta beach. Carles Abellan and Joan Escribà have joined forces and opened this beach bar with a goal to raise the level of the gastronomic service at the Barcelona’s beacha rea. You will find normal and signature sandwiches, salads, snacks and ice cream. All quality at a price that is in no higher than in the rest of the bars. Ice cream is the ice cream of the Roca, Rocambolesc brothers.


Moving further we replace to the Nova Icaria beach, less noisy than Barceloneta, may be less touristic. Dockers bar is another one chiringuito right at the beach with very competitive prices for salads, pizzas or famous Mexican nachos with guacamole. Feel free to try their frappe, coffee or coffee with very cold milk covered with soft foam.

Ranging the coast of Barcelona you will find hundred of bars and restaurants with signature cuisine or simple everyday menu, well for all tastes and wallets. To go and try some of these cute bars feel free to come at night as well. They will be glad to prepare theirs better mojito or piña colada for you. Staying at the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona you’ll have all these bars in a walking proximity. Visit our website for more information and check our special offers.
