Bars for more mature (older !) people?

by BrenfromEngland

Hi
I'm in Barcelona on Tuesday night on a short notice business trip.
Can anybody recommend bars in the centre for the more mature clientele please ? !
Anybody like to join me for a drink ?
Thanks

Hi,
I cannot recommend any
but of what I read, bars in general are not-only-youngsters places

so hopefully you can find one or two near where you stay.

Hi,

I would suggest that you try El Born district, there are many bars frequented by all ages especially on its central avenue Passeig del Born. Miramelindo has been a personal favourite for over 20 years, and has changed little in that time. It has a nice relaxed informal feel to it, it is famed for its Mojitos, but plenty of people just have a beer. I've always felt it has a touch of Somerset Maugham about it. Just round acorner of the Passeig is Gimlet, a quiet minimalist cocktail bar with seriously professional barmen. This area gives you options, most other bars are scattered around the city.

You could visit a Barcelona institution, Boadas, just of the top of Las ramblas, is a classic old cocktail bar, it hasn't changed since the 50s, but its not a place for a relaxing drink these days as its packed with tourists as well as locals, still worth popping in though

If you want to try an old fashioned cocktail bar with a gentlemen's club feel, panelled walls and leather seats, then try Dry Martini, expensive but great cocktails.

Thanks for the great suggestions so far.
The trip has been postponed to next week - not sure which day yet, so happy to hear any other suggestions.
If anybody fancies meeting up for a beer, drop me an email on bren_connolly@hotmail.com.

I'll post again when I know which day I'll be there.

Cheers
Bren

you are welcome

For a good beer bar where you can get a full meal or just tapas is Cervessaria d'Or at the corner of Rambla Catalunya and Consell de Cent (not on "Ramblas"). They have German-style beer on tap and an incredible selection of bottled beers. You won't feel uncomfortable eating alone since it is very casual. Hope you find some companionship, though.

Re: Bars for more mature (older !) people?

Thanks again folks
The trip's confirmed now. I'll be there on Thursday night (18 Feb) so if anybody fancies meeting for a drink and a chat, please let me know.
Thanks
Bren

Mention of beer bars brings this bar / microbrewery to mind

OK, since we're talking beer...Damm is the local brew in Barcelona. Estrella is one of the beers they make. It's good. My favorite, though is Voll Damm. It's a German Altbier style; dark beer. So, if you like that sort of thing, I recommend it.

Hospital del Mar

by xaver

Actually not my favourite thing in Barcelona, but definitly a fondest memory as I spent there 6 hours.My friends and I went there in the morning cause we had vomit and stomach pains all night long, asked at emergency and, after they gave us something to stop vomit, we waited for 6 hours for the visit(being italians we were pretty used to this looooooong waiting list.
This hospital is convenient if you are in the harbour area and, if you are european and, like us, you forgot to bring the EU medical insurance card, they'll give you a number where you can fax your card details, once you get back home. The address of the hospital is:pg. MarĂ­tim, 25.

Spanish people are...

by sidhartha

Spanish people are great!
But,although they are a part of Spain,you have to know that people from Barcelona are extremly touchy about their nationality!
They are Catalans and they are very proud of their language.
So it would be very nice of you(and wormly admitted by them!) if you greeted them with 'Bon dia!' insted of 'Buenos dias!'!!!
And there's something else-if you don't like their football club'Barcelona',keep it to yourself!!!!!
Belive me,you do not want them to know that you like some other football club(especially'Real Madrid!!)

George Orwell Square

by Harold_Godwin

Barcelona finally got round to naming a square after George Orwell, the author of 'Homage to Catalonia' and erstwhile fighter for the POUM - the anarchist party - during the Spanish Civil War. Probably the Council had a bad conscience - as well it might. After all, there are still some twenty streets named after prominent Fascists and a large number of monuments from the dictatorship. The street named after the Duke of Victoria (Duc de Vitoria) - the man who bombed the city - was only changed in 2003. Even so, the Council's action seems half-hearted. The square is in an insalubrious part of the Old Quarter and has little to commend it except the name.

The sculpture fails to evoke anything to do with Orwell, except perhaps the tuberculosis virus from which he perished. Catalonia's homage to the man is singularly unconvincing and compares poorly with the prominence given to obscure local worthies.

The Placa George Orwell is at the end of Escudellers street, in the middle of La Merce neighbourhood. Better avoided after dark.

Cheese in El Borne

by jhoolko about Tot Formatge

This was one of my favorite stops in Barcelona, and its a great place to come if you find yourself in the area of El Borne. Look for the purple awning on the left side of Passeig Del Borne and you've found Tot Formatge. Go inside and view the startling array of delicious cheeses they have for sale-and nothing else. It's all cheese, and it's all good. They usually have load of samples out in baskets or on cutting boards, and they don't mind if you try them all. The goat cheese they keep near the counter in small rounds is my favorite, but they have any kind that you would ever want. It's a great place for a snack that's fun to buy and great to eat. After you get your cheese, hunt for a little paneria, or stop by La Boqueria to pick up a loaf of bread and enjoy a nice afternoon snack. Another secret about bread: for great baguettes for 30 centimos, head to the nearest Condis supermarket. They usually bake their cread right in the store and I found it to be the absolute best of its kind. Goat cheese, or any kind of cheese you like. Between 2 and 10 dollars, depending on your taste.
