Cafe del Sol

★★★★ : €€€€
Placa del Sol, 16
Metro Fontana L3
If this is your first trip to Gracia, this is the place to go! This bar is in Placa del Sol, and really represents the heart of Gracia. The Placa itself is a wonderful place to go and drink in the sun (thus its name!) and is full of peeps from all walks of life. Expect to find a plethora of bars here including of course this one! This is one of the biggest bars in the Placa and is indeed very large for this neighbourhood. It not only has a bar area, a backroom, an upstairs but also a good terrace. Musically, there is a DJ knocking out a variety of tunes at weekends and the bar staff here can understand English. The atmosphere here is extremely good, you'll find everything from locals to ex-pats, students and of course our tourist friends! This is therefore a great place to meet people and although you'll pop in for a quick drink, don't be surprised to find yourself staggering homewards at closing time. The bar is fairly comfortable although non-smokers should avoid the back part of the bar as it's pretty poorly ventilated. All in all, though this isn't my favourite bar in Gracia, it's a great place to go and drink and get yourself acquainted with this great area and pick up some drinking tips along the way!

Although Gracia is a great area to go out in, and Placa del Sol is a favourite, I feel like the Placa, and Cafe del Sol in particular have gone downhill recently. By all means visit Place del Sol, but go to one of the better bars, like Sol de Nit, Mond Bar or Woody's. Better yet, use our "Areas" facility to check out some of the other great bars in the general Gracia area.
